2014 Golden Rose Form Guide & Historical Preview

Fifteen final acceptors make op the field for this year’s $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose (1400m), running as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:25pm.

Favourite of those in from $4.40 to $3.80 is the Peter Moody-trained filly Bring Me The Maid, third in her last Group 1 assignment behind Mossfun and Earthquake in April’s $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

She’s a known wet-track performer and a dual Group 2 winner on Heavy Sydney tracks with money coming for her to beat home the boys this weekend.

The other major players in the Golden Rose Stakes betting markets are then James & Bart Cummings’ undefeated Run To The Rose winning colt Hallowed Crown ($5.50) who also goes well in the wet, Moody’s other runner Better Land ($7) and San Domenico Stakes winner Nostradamus ($8.50) who could still scratch out in favour of a run on firmer ground in Melbourne’s Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m).

That’s what the Golden Rose odds say but what about the form guide, race history and betting statistics?
