Rosehill Track Report – 30/01/2021

  • Rail: +3m Entire
  • Penetrometer: 5.69
  • Weather: Overcast
  • Dual Track Meeting: N
  • Track Type: Turf
  • Track Rating: Soft (7)
  • General Comment: Finalised 30/1 – 7:30am
  • Irrigation: Nil last 24hrs, 19mm last 7 days
  • Rainfall: 5mm last 24hrs, 18mm last 7 days

The weather in Sydney is for scattered thunderstorms and more rain across the afternoon meaning there could be a downgrade to the current Soft (7) Rosehill track rating, paving the way for the mudlarks to salute in the wet.

Rosehill racing gets underway at 1:15pm (AEDT) and the nine-race card continues through until the last at 6:15pm (AEDT).

There are three Group status races on the program starting with a small field of eight potential 2021 Golden Slipper Stakes-bound fillies facing off in Race 2 (1:50pm) in the Group 3 $160,000 Widden Stakes (1100m).

The two-year-old colts and geldings are next-up in their equivalent lead-up into the $3.5 million Group 1 held in late March with eight also left in the Group 3 $160,000 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) following three withdrawals from the original line-up.

The meeting’s marquee event is the Group 2 $200,000 Expressway Stakes (1200m) set to run as Rosehill Race 7 at 5:00pm (AEDT).

The 2021 Expressway Stakes field has just six runners after three scratchings including last year’s champion Standout who isn’t effective on Soft tracks and the spring’s Golden Rose – Caulfield Guineas winning three-year-old Ole Kirk whose first-up run has been delayed.

Updated Expressway Stakes odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au are now dominated by the Godolphin-raced Savatiano ($2.05) who is nearing odds-on territory as a proven Soft-track performer.
