Strong Rosehill Nominations feature Raceway and Ichihara

A solid card of nominations for Rosehill this weekend is highlighted by the Benchmark 84 Handicap (1100m) which includes promising three-year-olds Raceway, Better Than Ready and Ichihara.


Ichihara will kick off her autumn campaign at Rosehill on Saturday

Former rig Raceway has been gelded and is ready to make his return to the track after lining up just once for a disappointing fifth during the spring.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained chestnut has shown pleasing signs in two recent trials that he is ready to return to the sort of form that saw him win at Stakes level as a two-year-old and finish fifth in the Golden Slipper.

Ichihara was a Group 2 winner as a two-year-old before experiencing indifferent spring form.

The Alan Denham-trained filly is a winner of four of eight starts but crossed the line in front just once from four spring outings.

Wet weather in Queensland has forced Brisbane trainer Kelly Schweida to look south with his talented colt who experienced some success in the harbour city during the spring.

The still untapped three-year-old produced a flying finish to win the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes in October and take his record to four wins from six starts.

A son of More Than Ready, the well-built galloper is being aimed at the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm on February 16.

Also set to make the trip down from Queensland for the race is four-year-old I’m Cool who has shown outstanding promise during the early stages of his career.

The Falvelon gelding has won four of six starts and is likely to improve off a first-up fourth in the Class 6 race at the Magic Millions Carnival.

Another strong race at Rosehill on Saturday is the February Handicap (1400m) which will see Group 1 placegetter Said Com take on the likes of Foreteller and Samui Lad.
