Golden Rose Hopes Among 2013 The Rosebud Nominations

The race towards the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival’s premier race for three-year-olds, the 2013 Golden Rose, is officially on with nominations out for the $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) running this Saturday.

A traditional lead-up for youngsters heading towards a shot at the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), held this year at Rosehill Gardens on September 14, The Rosebud 2013 had drawn 15 early entries.

One of two black type races held at Royal Randwick on Saturday along with the $125,000 Group 3 Missile Stakes (1200m), The Rosebud will be a telling guide for punters looking ahead to the Golden Rose next month.

Eurozone is one of the highly-spruiked The Rosebud nominees, the Bart & James Cummings-trained Northern Meteor colt having won their opening two career starts during the winter.

Their latest effort was a good three-quarter length effort over Bull Point in a 1200m Rosehill handicap on July 6, after which Cummings announced their Golden Rose ambitions.

“What no one can argue with is the Bull Point form,” the Bunbury Mail reported James Cummings as saying.

“We gave him a couple of days off after his last win and then he had a trial on Friday and Hugh [Bowman] was very happy with him.

“He still has a bit of improvement in him and whether he needs another preparation to show his best we will have to wait and see.”

Bart’s son Anthony Cummings meanwhile will also play a strong hand in The Rosebud this weekend.

His possible hopes in the race are Fastnet Rock colt Cluster, Canonbury Stakes winner Never Can Tell last seen running sixth to Criterion in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) back in March, and another son of the recently departed sire Northern Meteor – One Step Beyond coming off a narrow first-up win at Gosford from August 1.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Bull Point is also set to run in The Rosebud this weekend, the Fastent Rock colt out to turn the tables on Eurozone.

Bull Point has had a run in between however smashing their rivals including runner-up Mr Entertainer, Grant Allard’s well-tried Mossman colt who is also a The Rosebud nominee, by an easy three lengths on July 20.

Along with Bull Point Waterhouse has also nominated for Northern Glory who is the top rated hope.

The Northern Meteor filly has had six starts for a trio of wins to date including back-to-back Randwick wins over 1200m during June.

Her latest effort saw her step up to 1300m on July 27 and carry 59kg to a brave third behind Watabout (56.5kg) in a 2yo open handicap.

Another The Rosebud nomination, the Allan Denham-trained More Than Ready filly Watabout has won their past three on the trot and if accepted will be after the fourth.

Others high up the ratings then include John Sargent’s resuming Choisir colt Good Job Bro and Charge Forward filly Dream Forward coming off a first-up win at Canterbury.
