Running as Rosehill Race 6 at 3:10pm (AEST), this year’s $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose (1400m) features a final field of 14 with current markets at led by the John O’Shea-trained Astern ($4).

The Godolphin galloper won the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) last time out and is out to emulate the O’Shea-trained Exosphere who won that lead-up and the Golden Rose last Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

On the drift in Golden Rose betting is one-time favourite Omei Sword ($4.20) for Chris Waller, the Silver Shadow Stakes winning filly looking to stack up against the boys from gate three.

So will the top two fancies be the first two past the post in the Golden Rose finishing order or is there value further down the markets from the likes of David Vandyke’s resuming Group 1 winning filly Yankee Rose ($5.50) or the Up & Coming Stakes winner Divine Prophet ($4.80) for Team Hawkes?


#2 El Divino ($16)

A Golden Rose winner hasn’t saluted at double-figure since Epaulette ($12 in 2012) but going the value punt this spring with the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Snitzel colt El Divino. He is a Group 3 winner from the autumn at Randwick before a first-up fourth to Astern in the Run To The Rose. That race is the strongest Golden Rose form line in the past decade, including producing the past four winners on the trot. Zoustar (2013) ran fourth in the Group 2 before the Group 1 win and El Divino can do the same on Saturday with the race’s four-time winning hoop Hugh Bowman aboard second-up from a gun gate four draw.


#12 Yankee Rose ($5.50)

Fillies don’t win this race historically, but since 2003 two have run second like we’re tipping the returning Yankee Rose to do this weekend. She is three-from-four as a two-year-old last season including having won both her previous Rosehill runs. Last start she backed-up off the Golden Slipper second to win the Group 1 Sires’ Produce at Randwick over this distance. Hasn’t been the ideal lead-up, but she’s finally been showing enough in her work to suggest she’s ready to come back in brilliant fashion. She’s well-backed, has a 75% Win Rate, loves the track and is the only previous winner over the distance.


#1 Astern ($4)

Current favourite is looking to become the third in as many years to complete the Run To The Rose – Golden Rose double. Is out in barrier 12, but two of the past three Golden Rose winners jumped four double-digits. John O’Shea is after back-to-back wins as is jockey James McDonald, so the form is there for Astern whose only loss in five starts so far was a Golden Slipper 11th from a nasty draw (16 of 16).
