Today’s racing at Rosehill kicks off with the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes running over 1200 metres at 12:40pm and concludes with the Group 3 NE Manion Cup running over 2400 metres at 5:50pm.

Nestled between those two races are five Group 1 races, including the Golden Slipper at 4:30pm. Following the scratching of Clarry ConnersLook To The Stars, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Vancouver will occupy barrier 16 – the outside gate. However the colt remains the $3 favourite in the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au due to his impressive three and a quarter length victory in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) on March 7.

The only other 2015 Golden Slipper single figure hopeful is John O’Shea’s Exosphere, who’s price has firmed from $4.60 into $4. The colt was last seen winning the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) by four lengths on February 28 and will be ridden by defending champion jockey James McDonald.

Other feature races throughout the day include the $1 million Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), for which Shooting To Win is the $4.80 favourite, the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m), which will both contain just seven runners each, and the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m), where Deep Field has seen a massive drift from $3.80 out to $7.

So far there are a total number of 15 scratchings across the day’s races. Check out the full details below.
