Sarajevo Heads The Rosebud 2014 Odds

One of Godolphin’s best chances of securing the Group 1 Golden Rose this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival, Sarajevo steps out at Randwick as the punters’ pick in Saturday’s 2014 The Rosebud.

The John O’Shea-trained Lonhro colt is one of eight three-year-olds facing off in this year’s $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m) on Missile Stakes Day.

Drawn in gate three with the state’s premier jockey James McDonald to ride, Sarajevo heads the early The Rosebud betting markets at a quote of $2.70 at

They also are the shortest priced of The Rosebud hopes in the futures markets for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 13 paying $10 in odds led by their Blue Diamond Stakes winning stablemate Earthquake ($6.50).

Young Sarajevo has had just the one career start to date when winning over 1100m at Kensington on April 21 but come off two good Randwick trials with McDonald aboard including their latest 1.5 length win over 840m beating Role Model and Villa Verde last Friday.

Close second favourite in The Rosebud odds at $3.10 through is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Nayeli drawn one inside of Sarajevo with Tommy Berry riding them from barrier two.

A $17 Golden Rose chance the More Than Ready filly has won two of her three starts to date including the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield in early February.

Her latest run was a disappointing 15th when beating home just one other runner in the Blue Diamond Stakes but two winning Randwick trials since then have shown she’s race fit and ready to resume as a three-year-old.

There are then three other single figure fancies for The Rosebud with Inkling ($7), Better Land ($7) and Scissor Kick ($8.50).

Peter & Paul Snowden were disappointed with the 59kg top weight allocated to their two-time winning Duporth colt Inkling for The Rosebud, tossing up whether to save them for $125,000 Group 3 San Domenic Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Saturday week.

At this stage they’re running on the weekend however shooting for back-to-back wins following a 1150m win at the Kensington track over Sheer Style back on July 26.

The Peter Moody-trained Better Land also won their latest start when the Shamardal colt enjoyed a winning debut in the mud at Sale back in early April, a winning Doomben trial during their Queensland spell on July 22 their last public appearance.

Scissor Kick meanwhile won at Canterbury over 1250m on July 23 to enter Golden Rose calculations, Paul Messara’s Scone-based Redoute’s Choice colt at a generous $51 for the Group 1 where the 1400m should suit.

Early market mover at $16 meanwhile is Bold Circle, money coming for the nicely priced David Payne-trained Bernardini colt who won at Rosehill back in October in a race Unencumbered placed third in but who hasn’t raced or trialed since.

Rounding out The Rosebud field and markets are then Waterhouse’s other runner Echo Prince ($31) and the Chris Waller-trained Hero I Am ($41) drawn on the rails.
