Sydney’s exciting Autumn Carnival action continues on Saturday and one of the big weekend highlights is the Group 1 2013 Rosehill Guineas (2000m).
Nine three-year-olds will contest the $500,000 feature and Randwick Guineas winner It’s A Dundeel is the current favourite at $1.85.
The only other horse that comes close in betting is Fiveandahalfstar who is a $3.30 chance to build on his second in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes last weekend.
Victorian colt Hvasstan is the only other runner under double figures, with bookmaker.com.au offering the Alister Clark Stakes winner at $8.
Others contesting the Guineas include Chris Waller’s former Kiwi galloper Sacred Falls ($12) and Randwick Guineas third placegetter Tatra ($18).
