Rosehill Scratchings – 24/09/2016

Total Scratchings: 16

Race 1 (12:15pm) – $85,000 #TheRaces Handicap (2000m)

  • #3 Dubaiinstyle (3)
  • #7 Bring Luck (8)
  • #9 My Giuliano (5)

A benchmark 78 handicap kicks off the card and eight runners remain in the mix including the hot Chris Waller-trained favourite Antonio Giuseppe ($2.60) chasing his fourth Sydney win on the trot and third at Rosehill. Has been thriving on wet going, but the Kiwi import drops from 58.5kg to 56kg (getting weight relief from his 61kg allocation with apprentice claim of Koby Jennings) making him hard to bet against. Market mover Salthouse ($5) is the danger.

Race 2 (12:50pm) – $125,000 Group 3 2016 Queen’s Cup (2400m)

  • No current scratchings

None come out of the day’s first Black-Type but there is still only five in this field. Four are under double figures in the markets with money rolling in for Allergic ($2.50), James McDonald riding the Godolphin galloper who comes off a Kingston Town Stakes placing. Value is the stablemate Alegira ($3).

Race 3 (1:25pm) – $60,000 TAB Highway Handicap (1500m)

  • #13 Dalmatia Prince (5)
  • #17e Uncle Gerry (7)
  • #18e Red Hot Tango (14)
  • #19e Moment To Test (6)

A Class 2 handicap where 15 line-up including the market mover and now favourite Shotgun Roulette ($4.20) who has Group 3 form from the autumn, but winning form only up to 1250m. The distance is the test so happy to leave and go to light-weight Cool In Black ($4.40) coming of a Canberra win over 1300m in the wet.

Race 4 (2:00pm) – $100,000 Listed TAB Reginald Allen Quality (1400m)

  • #7 Legless Veuve (8)
  • #9 Our Belisa (11)

Nine left in this Black-Type handicap where Smart Amelia ($4.50) is the favourite, James Cummings’ progressive Smart Missile filly down in grade after the strong fourth to Foxplay in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) last start. Money also coming in for Invincibella ($5), James McDonald riding Chris Waller’s super consistent filly who is black-Type placed and comes off a Canterbury win first-up.

Race 5 (2:35pm) – $200,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m)

  • #5 High Mist (1)

Chris Waller runs High Mist in the next race instead leaving only six runners in this set weights clash for three-year-olds. It’s a small field full of class and could produce the 2016 Caulfield Guineas winner. Money is on Team Hawkes’ Up & Coming winner Divine Prophet ($2.35) and the John O’Shea-trained Impending ($2.60). They ran fourth and third respectively in the Golden Rose last start so are the obvious picks, but Good Standing is the threat out to improve on a fifth in the same Group 1 lead-up.

Race 6 (3:15pm) – $200,000 Group 3 Schweppes Gloaming Stakes (1800m)

  • No current scratchings

The full 10 acceptors remain in contention for this three-year-old staying showdown, a gun guide to the Spring Champion Stakes and even Melbourne’s VRC Derby later in the season. Prized Icon ($3.30) is after his first win since the Group 1 over a mile as a two-year-old in the autumn, but High Mist ($4.20) has claims as does the undefeated Ming Dynasty Quality winner Swear ($4).

Race 7 (3:55pm) – $400,000 Group 2 Ronald McDonald House Westmead Golden Pendant (1400m)

  • No current scratchings

The full 10 final acceptors all remain in contention for this lucrative clash for the fillies and mares where John Thompson’s Group 1 winner First Seal ($3.30) looks the one to beat first-up. She gives the weight and fitness advantage away however to the last start Sheraco Stakes winner Heavens Above ($5.50) and market mover Tycoon Tara ($6) who is having an outstanding campaign.

Race 8 (4:35pm) – $175,000 Group 2 Shannon Stakes (1500m)

  • #1 Counterattack (5)
  • #8 Kellyville Flyer (10)
  • #10 More To Gain (9)

Just seven are left in this handicap clash with $105,000 to the winner on offer. Markets are wide open and it looks the hardest on the card to tip so if you’re leaving a race off this is the one. Hi World ($3.50) is favourite but the value is likely to lie further down the markets in a runner like last start winner at the track Moral Victory ($8.50).

Race 9 (5:15pm) – $85,000 Hyland Race Colours Handicap (1400m)

  • #5 Our Boy Nicholas (8)
  • #7 Invinzabeel (2)
  • #12 Moher (14)

A benchmark 85 to close the card where 12 line-up and Extensible ($3.50) is the favourite off the good lead-up form having finished in the money in his past eight starts, including a trio of wins. Ran second to Waller’s Antonio Giuseppe here last start and the Team Snowden-trained runner is good enough to win this.
