Twisted Emotions Ready to Step Up in 2013 Rosehill Guineas

John O’Shea is confident in-form gelding Twisted Emotions can handle a steep rise in class when he contests the Group 1 2013 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on Saturday.

The three-year-old heads into the race chasing a third consecutive victory after winning at Goulburn and Gosford at his past two outings.

It will be his first voyage into stakes company this weekend but O’Shea believes his is up to the task, suggesting he is better than Zabrasive who O’Shea trained to win the 2010 Rosehill Guineas.

“In fairness, this year’s Rosehill Guineas looks to be a touch stronger but I think Twisted Emotions is a better horse than Zabrasive,” O’Shea told TVN.

O’Shea resisted the urge to thrown him into stakes company over 1600m in the Randwick Guineas which was won by likely Rosehill Guineas favourite It’s A Dundeel.

It’s A Dundeel, a winner of six of nine starts, is on a path towards taking out the Sydney three-year-old triple crown, with the Australian Derby his ultimate goal after this weekend.

While just 10 horses will contest the Rosehill Guineas it is still a tough ask for Twisted Emotions in his first go in the top grade.

Also among the acceptors is Victoria Derby winner Fiveandahalfstar who has been in terrific form without winning so far this autumn.

The Hotel Grand gelding has finished runner-up in four autumn starts including the Group 1 Australian Cup and the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes.

But he is not a definite starter, with trainer Anthony Cummings to leave a final decision until later in the week.

“I’ll accept with him and we’ll make a final decision on Friday, maybe even Saturday morning,” Cummings said.
