Darciwood Expected to Bounce Back at Rosehill

Despite finishing third when favourite at his last start, the bookies are taking no chances with promising gelding Darciwood at Rosehill this Saturday.

The three-year-old has opened as a $2.50 chance ahead of his third career outing in Champs Cafe Benchmark 76 Handicap (1500m).

Darciwood created plenty of hype in the racing community last month when scoring by three lengths on debut at Geelong. The hype was amplified due to his breeding, with the Team Hawkes-trained galloper a half-brother to 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up Maluckyday.

He was expected to make it two from two on June 1 at Rosehill but failed to reel in the leaders despite being given every opportunity in the straight.

A rise in distance from 1200m is expected to benefit the emerging galloper who is by Darci Brahma out of Natalie Wood, the same dam who produced Maluckyday.

The Champs Cafe Handicap will jump as race three on Rosehill’s eight-race Saturday program.

On face value the Sydney Banana Wholesalers Handicap (2000m), race eight,  appears to be the pick of the card. The field has attracted plenty of names that are familiar to stakes racing including Bjorn Baker’s gelding Cantonese.

Cantonese gets up to a suitable distance this weekend after three lead-up runs. Taking on Cantonese are consistent four-year-olds Merlin Mustang and Destiny’s Kiss.

In the Gaypak/United Fruit Handicap (1350m), there are three horses in the field chasing a third consecutive win. Patinack Farm’s classy filly Peron is dual nominated for a race at Ipswich but it is expected both Chris Waller’s Disciple and John O’Shea’s Nothing Like Luca will take their place in the field.
