Punters are treated to five Group status races on the program starting with Race 4 at 1:40pm where a line-up of potential The Metropolitan hopefuls do battle in the Group 3 $160,000 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m).
The 2021 Colin Stephen Quality field is down to 11 with the early scratching of the Hawkes Racing-trained Pesto (11) and markets at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by the Chris Waller-trained No Compromise.
A potential Epsom Handicap lead-up is the next feature with the Group 2 $200,000 Shannon Stakes (1500m) due to jump as Race 6 (2:50pm) and all 10 original acceptors are still in the mix including the favourite Love Tap.
Rosehill Race 7 today is the lucrative Group 2 $400,000 Golden Pendant (1400m) for the mares and with three early scratchings the updated markets have star Kiwi-trained Entriviere as the one to beat off her Sheraco Stakes victory.
The meeting’s marquee race is the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose (1400m) running as Race 8 at 4:05pm and the 13-horse Golden Rose field is dominated by Group 1 winner Anamoe for Godolphin coming off a Run To The Rose lead-up win.
Group racing continues with the penultimate race on the card, the Group 3 $200,000 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) for the three-year-old staying types where the capacity field is led in betting by Head Of State from the Waller stable.
