Rosehill Race Scratchings – 29/08/2015

Total Scratchings: 13

Race 1 (12:40pm) – $85,000 All Too Hard @ Vinery Handicap (2400m)

  • #6 Ward (6)

Just six line-up in the first at Rosehill with a wide open field, no galloper over $10 for the win. Early favourite drawn the rails and shooting for a hat-trick of wins on the trot is Hugh Bowman’s mount Defrost My Heart ($2.80) who is a gun over 2400m and has upside coming into this. Also money coming for Lucky Liaison ($5) who will appreciate the claim from their apprentice hoop.

Race 2 (1:15pm) – $85,000 TAB.Com.Au Handicap (1500m)

  • #6 Supreme Warrior (6)

Another small field this one with six in the mix following a single scratching like in the first. Markets a wide open affair with a trio fighting for favouritism, Foreign Prince ($3.40) currently winning the battle with Tommy Berry to ride the son of High Chaparral. Hot on his heels in the markets though are the rails-drawn 59kg top weight Centre Pivot ($3.70) who beat some notable hopes home in the Spring Preview two weeks ago and Hollywood Bound ($3.90) who hit the line hard when runner-up at Randwick over the mile at the start of the month.

Race 3 (1:50pm) – $85,000 McGrath Estate Agents Handicap (1400m)

  • #3 Vanbrugh (7)

Seven in the mix in the third, a nice BenchMark 72 where River Wild is odds-on favourite and still firming at $1.80, the son of Fastnet Rock having made an impression with a six length win on debut over 1300m at Kembla Grange for trainer Gai Waterhouse a fortnight ago. Rise in class, but is the one to beat with Let’s Make It Rain ($6.50) also boasting claims even with the top weight (59kg).

Race 4 (2:30pm) – $100,000 Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m)

  • #8 Jiayuguan (8)

The meeting’s first of two stakes races, the field for this quality handicap is small (seven) and narrow favourite at $3 is Sam Clipperton’s mount Magic Hurricane who gets in on the 54kg minimum and comes off a third in the Spring Preview here two weeks ago. Has winning form up to 2400m so distance a non-issue and will eat up the ground. Market mover is Chris Waller’s Silverball ($3.70) who will strip fitter having looked overweight in his resuming run.

Race 5 (3:05pm) – $175,000 Group 2 MTA NSW Run To The Rose (1200m)

  • #5 Raphael’s Cat (4)
  • #7 Mr Optimistic (2)

The day’s headliner but only the five final starters after Waterhouse withdrew her hopeful Raphael’s Cat. The race roughie Mr Optimistic also came out, but was never a genuine hope of winning in a race dominated by the Waller-trained Japonisme on the rails with Hugh Bowman riding the young gun who shoots for a fifth win on the trot this time in. Exosphere ($3.70) for Godolphin is the next best in betting, while the interest lies in Waller’s returning Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) winner Press Statement ($6.50) and what he does first-up over this distance.

Race 6 (3:45pm) – $85,000 TAB Place Multi Handicap (1100m)

  • #1 Vezalay (5)

Vezalay out of the sixth having gained a run as the first emergency in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes down at Caulfield on the Memsie Stakes Day card. The one to beat in this handicap for fillies and mares according to the bookies is now Sultry Feeling ($5.50 into $4.40), another top Bowman mount for the day who is first-up having last run fourth beaten under two lengths by Miss Cover Girl in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) at Randwick in early April.

Race 7 (4:25pm) – $85,000 Schweppes Handicap (1400m)

  • #2 Holy Delusions (2)
  • #3 Pressing (11)
  • #10 Mark’s Legacy (6)
  • #12 Artistry (9)

A number come out of the penultimate Rosehill race today, leaving 10 in the mix for the BenchMark 75 where all the money is on His Majesty ($2.20) jumping from the inside alley with Tommy Berry aboard the in-form Kim Waugh-trained Wyong galloper. Lightly raced despite being a six-year-old with nine starts for three wins and four other minor placings, including a Rosehill second in this class over just 50m shorter a fortnight back.

Race 8 (5:05pm) – $85,000 TAB Rewards Handicap (1200m)

  • #4 Havana (9)
  • #11 Wonderbolt (11)

Sydney racing comes to an end with a nice BenchMark 85 sprint featuring a few talented types led by market mover Inz’n’out ($2.35) coming off a good win at Randwick three weeks ago where the Gerald Ryan-trained Zariz four-year-old beat his rivals by a minimum four lengths.
