Mediterranean Tops The Rosebud 2016 Betting

Peter & Paul Snowden’s Golden Rose-bound colt Mediterranean has opened favourite to handle a Heavy track at Royal Randwick on Saturday with a win in the 2016 The Rosebud.

The stable may be forced to scratch current favourite for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), held at Rosehill on September 10, Capitalist from the same meeting this weekend with heavy rainfall continuing around Sydney.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden said on Wednesday that Capitalist was “at this stage” still due to run first-up in the $175,000 Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

The Golden Slipper winning colt however could be scratched from the weight-for-age sprint if the rain doesn’t ease and the current Heavy (10) Randwick track rating stays.

Another 2016 Golden Rose Stakes hope for the team set to start favourite in the other Black-Type event on Missile Stakes Day meanwhile is Mediterranean running in the $100,000 Listed The Randwick City Council Rosebud (1200m).

The progressive son of Smart Missile pays around $15 in all-in Golden Rose Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au and is shorter at $2.25 to win his lead-up in The Rosebud this weekend.

He comes off a win on a Heavy (8) track at Canterbury on July 6 over 1200m by nearly two lengths and also was successful in a July 29 trial at Randwick over 1050m.

Back in the autumn Mediterranean was twice tested in Group 2 company over the same distance running fifth in both the Skyline Stakes and Pago Pago Stakes and the bookies are taking no chances with him off the ultra-impressive Canterbury effort last time out.

Close second favourite and The Rosebud market mover is the rails-drawn Thronum prepared by the new training partnership of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

The consistent Snitzel colt won his first two starts, including over this track / distance on a Heavy (9) course in early July by a runaway three lengths, before a last start second at Canterbury on July 23 behind Tango Rain.

Thronum is proven on a bog track and has Tommy Berry sticking aboard for his first stakes assignment on Saturday.

The other two single-figure hopes in the latest The Rosebud odds are Hair Trigger ($4.20) and Quick Feet ($9), while Pittsburgh is an early scratching from the field.

James Cummings saddles-up Smart Missile gelding Hair Trigger from the outside alley after the recent Wyong winner’s third to Tango Rain in the same Canterbury race that produced Thronum (2nd).

He had a wide draw (10 of 10) that day and looks right in the mix again on Saturday with Glyn Schofield taking over in the saddle from Sam Clipperton.

Kerrin McEvoy, who is also on standby for the ride on Capitalist on just 51.5kg in the Missile, is booked to partner Team Snowden’s other The Rosebud hope Quick Feet from barrier three.

The nicely-bred Northern Meteor filly hasn’t seen worse than a Good-rated track over her four starts to date, but has class after a Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) second at Randwick to French Fern back in March and her credible ninth as a $101 roughie in the Slipper.

She comes off a Randwick trial won over 850m on Soft going from mid-July and could surprise at good odds if she handles the track this Saturday.
