The feature race at Rosehill Gardens this weekend is the 2014 The Run To The Rose that has drawn a strong field packed with talented three-year-olds.
The Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) is the key lead-up race to the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) that will be run at the same venue on September 13 and it is a very competitive betting fair.
Gai Waterhouse-trained Almalad has recorded three wins from as many race starts to date and he is currently a clear favourite in the 2014 The Run To The Rose betting market with Ladbrokes.com.au.
Almalad is currently available at odds of $3.70 with the leading online bookmaker that is offering the best odds for a wide range of races at both Caulfield and Rosehill Gardens this weekend!
Team Hawkes have elected to run Nostradamus in The Run To The Rose, rather than the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne, and he is on the second line of betting at a quote of $5.50.
Nostradamus started his 2014 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with a classy win in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on August 16 and has a fitness edge over the majority of his main rivals in this race.
Brazen Beau finished second behind Almalad in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) during the 2014 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and is on the third line of The Run To The Rose betting at a quote of $6, while there has also been a sprinkling of support for Sarajevo ($7), Hallowed Crown ($7.50) and market mover Sniper Fire ($19).
Our team of racing experts have analysed The Run To The Rose form guide and betting facts to have up with our 2014 The Run To The Rose Tips!
#5 Hallowed Crown ($7.50)
Hallowed Crown is undefeated from his two race starts to date and he is one of the only horses in the 2014 The Run To The Rose field that has previously won on a rain affected surface. The Street Sense colt’s win in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) at Royal Randwick earlier this year was extremely impressive and the form coming out of the race has been strong after Washington Heights finished second in the San Domenico Stakes. Hallowed Crown represents outstanding value at his current quote and is definitely worth an each-way bet.
#7 Scratch Me Lucky ($17)
Scratch Me Lucky is another galloper that has performed well on rain affected tracks and he is excellent each-way value at his quote of $17. The Snitzel colt finished an outstanding second behind Peggy Jean in the Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) and he has performed well in two barrier trials since returning to start his 2014 Spring Racing Carnival preparation.
#4 Nostradamus ($5.50)
Nostradamus already has the runs on the board this preparation, but the wet track is some concern for the Medaglia D’Oro. Based on his San Domenico Stakes run he will prove very difficult to beat if he performs at his best and he must be included in all exotic bets.
There is no better place to back the winner of the 2014 Run To The Rose than Ladbrokes.com.au.
