Group 1 racing in Sydney for another season kicks off on Saturday with the 2015 Golden Rose, the Races.com.au team’s exclusive two-word form guide on the three-year-old’s classic found right here.
Earlier we went through the entire form guide and betting history on the $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), but below we’ve summed up the chances of the eight remaining runners more concisely.
Running as Rosehill Race 6 at 3:45pm (AEST), the Golden Rose Stakes originally attracted nine final acceptors but Peter Moody was forced to scratch his in-form Melbourne raider Gold Symphony due to an elevated temperature.
The two colts that finished one-two in the traditional lead-up, the Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at the same track on August 29 are now also leading the Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.
The John O’Shea-trained winning son of Lonhro Exosphere now pays $3 to win again on Saturday the way last year’s champion Hallowed Crown did while Chris Waller’s runner-up Press Statement ($3.20) is hot on his heels tipped to improve with the extra metres this weekend.
So will the top two fancies run the Golden Rose quinella on Saturday?
