Twelve three-year-olds have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s featured Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Star Turn returned to racing for a dominant win in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) a fortnight ago and remains a clear $3.80 favourite in Run To The Rose betting markets with online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
Star Turn immediately stamped himself as a colt to follow upon debuting to racing in October last year, and has subsequently posted two wins and two minors through six starts.
Resuming in autumn for second in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude C&G (1100m), the Star Witness colt ran fifth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) before placing a credible sixth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).
Comfortably beating a strong field first-up, Star Turn will take plenty of beating in The Run To The Rose from the ideal barrier 5 and with regular hoop Tommy Berry in the saddle.
Impending is one of four Godolphin runners confirmed in The Run To The Rose field, and currently figures as sole occupant of the second line at a $4.40 quote.
Trialling well in the lead-up to his competitive debut, Impending charged home to win the Pluck @ Vinery Handicap (1100m) with complete ease on April 23rd.
Having returned to the paddock after finishing third in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial (1200m) on May 7th, the Lonhro colt has produced a number of smart trials leading into The Run To The Rose and is sure to receive a gem of a ride from Brenton Avdulla and barrier 6.
Mediterranean has returned to racing in smart form this time and is currently perched on the third line of Run To The Rose betting at even $5 odds.
Running fifth in each of the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) upon debuting in autumn, Mediterranean trialled particularly well in the lead-up returning this time and won the TAB.com.au Maiden (1200m) by two lengths first-up on July 6th.
Having progressed to second behind Thronum in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) on August 6th, the Smart Missile colt is sure to relish three weeks between runs and appears as though he will line up rock-hard fit.
Astern ($7) and El Divino ($6.50) arguably offer punters the best value at their current 2016 Run To The Rose odds.
