2020 The Roses Odds Update: Vanna Girl Firming Favourite

The money continues to roll in for Vanna Girl to continue her winning streak and salute for the punters in The Roses 2020 at Eagle Farm this weekend.

The in-form daughter of Husson represents last Saturday’s Stradbroke Handicap winning trainers Toby & Trent Edmonds in the Group 2 $175,000 Magic Millions The Roses (1800m) where she is drawn wide in barrier 13.

Vanna Girl, who looks set for a nice off-the-pace run from the alley on Saturday, has won five of her past six starts including three on the trot and her last two victories have been in Listed grade at Doomben.

The bonny young chestnut was last seen on May 30 saluting by a half-length in the Listed Pam O’Neill Stakes (1600m) and on Saturday she is out to extend her brilliance over further going up in distance.

Brad Stewart retains the ride on Vanna Girl in The Roses 2020 with the filly at $2.30 and firming through Ladbrokes.com.au to win.  

Despite drawing a capacity field, just two other fillies are under double-figures in The Roses betting this season with the Mark Newnham-trained Celestial Falls ($4.20) and Sky Horse ($6) for Ciaron Maher & David Eustace.

Celestial Falls is drawn barrier four with Michael Cahill to ride the well-bred daughter of Hinchinbrook after partnering her for the second to Vanna Girl in the Pam O’Neill Stakes.

Saturday is the second Group assignment for Celestial Falls who ran an eye-catching third on Caulfield Cup Day last October in the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m).

Third-up on the weekend she presents fit and should relish the rise in distance from a good gate for her rematch with Vanna Girl.

Sky Horse meanwhile comes via a different form line having last been seen running fourth behind the boys in the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic (1800m) at Eagle Farm on May 23.

She returns to the same track and distance here back against her own kind, the daughter of Tavistock having previously won two on the trot over the mile in Victoria.

The Gunsynd form was franked last weekend when the winner Supergiant ran second to the runner-up Ballistic Boy in the reverse of the quinella in the Group 3 Rough Habit Plate.

Now it is the fourth-placed filly’s turn and, after a tough run from gate 13 of 14, she looks well positioned in gate three with Ryan Maloney aboard this weekend.

“She is clearly progressive and we have spaced her runs nicely,” co-trainer Eustace told the New Zealand Racing Desk through the week.

“I’m looking forward to Saturday. She is a lovely filly who is really only just getting the hang of things right now.

“It was a really good run the other day from a long way back. She has drawn nicely on Saturday, which will be a big help.

“Her work on Monday was strong and we are quite confident. We think she will be hard to beat.”

For value at double-figure The Roses odds are then the likes of Tony Noonan’s Fiorente filly from Melbourne Florent ($14), another of the Newnham-trained trio Money Magic ($16) and the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Shuhood ($16) coming off a fourth in the Pam O’Neill.
