Rosehill Guineas 2021 Field & Odds: Montefilia Only Filly in the Mix

David Payne’s dual Group 1 winning filly and proven mudlark Montefilia is the sole female galloper taking on the boys in the 2021 Rosehill Guineas field on Saturday, and she could be the value with a wet track for Slipper Day.

Rosehill Gardens is currently rated a Heavy (9) and is on the verge of a washout ahead of one of the premier meetings of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with more rain on the forecast.

Currently all 11 original acceptors remain in the mix for the Group 1 $600,000 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) including Kermadec filly Montefilia.

She is out to break the hoodoo of fillies in the race with Riverina Charm (1989) the last female Rosehill Guineas winner.

The latest Rosehill Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have her at $4.80 to do so as she looks to improve on her first-up sixth to forbidden Love in the Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m) in February.

She made history in the spring completing the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) – Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) double, beating home the colts and geldings in the latter.

Those victories were on Good (4) tracks, but the muddy conditions also hold no fears as she boasts a Rosehill 1500m victory from August last year on a Heavy (9).

Montefilia is the third elect in Rosehill Guineas betting trailing only the firm favourite Mo’unga ($2.60) in barrier two and the early market mover Lion’s Roar ($4.40).

Tommy Berry retains the ride on the Annabel Neasham-trained Savabeel colt Mo’Unga who is out to return the favourites to winning form after the 2019 victory by The Autumn Sun.

He presents fit third-up on the weekend having run third to Tagaloa in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington before his second in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) where he was hampered at the start and didn’t get a clear run over the closing stages.

The step-up to 2000m for the Rosehill edition should suit Mo’Unga here who, with better luck, has the class to atone and turn the tables on his last start conqueror as the progressive horse in the race.

Lion’s Roar meanwhile is out to become the fourth horse since 2006 to complete Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas double, the John O’Shea-trained Contributer gelding drawn barrier nine with Brenton Avdulla in the saddle again.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies to win the Rosehill Guineas at $9 is the Chris Waller-trained Wheelhouse in gate four with Hugh Bowman riding.

Waller chases his third Rosehill Guineas win in four years having prepared back-to-back winners in D’Argento (2018) and The Autumn Sun (2019).

Wheelhouse has had a very consistent start to his career, the nicely-bred Pierro colt coming off a lead-up fourth at 50/1 in the Randwick Guineas and two seconds on Heavy tracks also on his record.
