The Run To The Rose Tips

Twelve talented three-year-olds have been confirmed for Saturday’s Group 2 The Run To The Rose (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

In-form colt Star Turn remains a clear $3.70 favourite in 2016 The Run To The Rose betting markets with leading online bookie, ahead of Godolphin runner Impending ($4.50) and Mediterranean ($5).

Will Star Turn continue his slick run of form through The Run To The Rose, or will one of his many talented rivals post an upset?


El Divino ($5.50)

El Divino is yet to taste anything but success to date and arguably offers punters the best value for money at current $5.50 Run To The Rose odds. Trialling well in the lead-up to his competitive debut, El Divino more than stamped himself as a colt to follow with a dominant five length win in the More Than Just Winning Maiden (1000m) at Gosford on March 17th. Finishing in a dead heat with Astern in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) in his only other start on Day 1 of The Championships, the half-brother to Winx is drawn ideally on the rails and will be partnered by leading hoop Hugh Bowman in the Run To The Rose.


Astern ($6.50)

Astern is a proven first-up performer and undoubtedly has the class to win the Run To The Rose on Saturday. Taking out the Surf Meets The Turf Maiden (1000m) by close to three lengths on debut in December, Astern resumed this year for success in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) but failing to fire in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m). Having returned to the paddock after atoning in the Kindergarten Stakes, the Medaglia D’Oro colt could very well receive the run of the race on Saturday from barrier 3 and will be partnered by James McDonald.


Star Turn ($3.70)

Star Turn’s dominant performance in the Group 3 San Domenco Stakes (1100m) first-up means he should prove tough to beat on Saturday, but the colt undoubtedly faces a far greater task in the Run To The Rose 2016. Resuming this year for second in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude C&G (1100m), the Star Witness colt finished fifth in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) before ending his campaign a credible sixth in the Golden Slipper. Tommy Berry remains in the saddle of Star Turn, who will leave from barrier 5.
