Part of the exciting Missile Stakes Day card in Sydney, this season’s Listed $140,000 Schweppes Rosebud (1100m) runs as Race 6 at 2:55pm (AEST).

The Rosebud field is down to nine three-year-olds with the early withdrawal of Rule Of Law (9) for Team Snowden and the Pat Farrell-trained One To Remember (7).

Updated The Rosebud betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have two youngsters battling for top spot with the consistent Anders chasing a third win on the trot and the resuming Gerald Ryan-trained Kumasi hot on his heels.

Prepared by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, untapped Not A Single Doubt colt Anders has had six starts for two wins and two further minor placings ahead of his Black-Type debut on the weekend.

He was last seen securing back-to-back 1100m wins at Wyong and Rosehill respectively in May on Soft – Heavy going and so looks well suited to the current Soft (7) track for Saturday’s race card.

Anders may be rising in grade for The Rosebud, but a five-length winning trial on the Synthetic Randwick track on July 28 caught the eye of the bookies who are taking no chances.

Connections will be hoping for a nice early show from the up-and-comer ahead of a possible shot at the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) over further on September 26.

Current all-in 2020 Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes.com.au list Anders as a $67 outsider, a price sure to firm should he come out and salute for the punters first-up.

In The Rosebud betting Anders has been the big early mover backed in from $5 to $3.70 to sit just ahead of Kumasi ($4) in the markets with the duo drawn barriers three and four respectively.

To be ridden by Brenton Avdulla who won the race back in 2015 aboard the Gary Portelli-trained Sebring Sun, promising Snitzel colt Kumasi has his third career run in the Listed feature.

He won at Gosford on debut as the odds-on favourite over 1000m in late February before the eye-catching second to Prague in Rosehill’s Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) in mid-March.

Prague went on to frank the Pago Pago Stakes form with a credible sixth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper before his second behind King’s Legacy in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce in April.

Kumasi meanwhile went out to the paddock after the Group 3 placing and has been brought on fitness wise for The Rosebud with a Rosehill trial over 900m run on a Heavy (8) when third on August 4.

Ryan chases his second The Rosebud win in four years following his 2017 success with Menari who lumped 60.5kg to victory in the quality handicap clash.

Top weight in this year’s event is Ole Kirk (59kg) for Hawkes Racing who Tommy Berry rides from barrier five.

Ole Kirk is the shortest-priced of The Rosebud acceptors in all-in Golden Rose betting at $26 for the Group 1 next month, and is at $11 for his first-up assignment with the big weight this weekend.

Winner of Flemington’s Talindert Stakes (1100m) on debut at a blowout price, the valuable Written Tycoon colt has had three starts since for three top four runs.

His latest two were at Randwick in April behind King’s Legacy when fourth in the Sires’ before a third when up over a mile in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m).

In a wide-open edition of The Rosebud the other best in betting are the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Rulership ($6), the rails-drawn Return With Honour ($7) and The Face ($6.50) with the latter two stablemates to Kumasi.
