The countdown to the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose (1400m) on September 23 continues on Saturday with a key lead-up taking place at Rosehill Gardens in the form of the Group 2 $300,000 Run To The Rose (1200m).

A bumper line-up of talented youngsters takes to the track in Rosehill Race 8 at 3:55pm (AEST), and the James Cummings-trained Cylinder is a deserving favourite in gate four with Nash Rawiller riding.

The well-tried son of Exceed And Excel has his eighth career start and was last seen posting his third win fresh in Caulfield’s Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m).

He had just a nose to spare on the line first-up but natural improvement, a return to Sydney and the step-up to six furlongs all suit.

Cylinder heads Run To The Rose betting at a short $2 and firming through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Last year’s Golden Slipper runner-up won the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) at his last run at Rosehill back in February, and he looks a genuine chance to salute for the punters on Saturday.

Cummings has an outstanding recent record in the event having prepared three of the past four Run To The Rose winners with Bivouac (2019), Anamoe (2021) and gun filly In Secret (2022) last year.

The danger occupying the second line of Run To The Rose betting at $4.50 this season is the undefeated Annabel Neasham-trained Libertad.

Chad Schofield rides the up-and-coming Russian Revolution colt from an ideal barrier three draw with Libertad looking to make it a flawless four-from-four start to his career.

He is already a dual Group 3 winner having won Randwick’s Kindergarten Stakes on a Heavy (8) back in April before his first-up San Domenico victory here at Rosehill on August 26.

The third runner currently under double-figure Run To The Rose odds is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Don Corleone ($8).

Extreme Choice colt Don Corleone chases his first win since a successful debut back in January.

He has had five runs since continuing to perform well at the highest level including a Group 1 Blue Diamond second at Sandown, fourth in the Golden Slipper and second to Militarize in the Group 1 Inglis Sires’ on a Heavy (9) Randwick track during ‘The Championships’.

Don Corleone was last seen finishing sixth to Militarize in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) over the mile in mid-April.

He resumes here and should perform well fresh on the back of two good Rosehill trials.

Chris Waller’s Sires’ Produce – Champagne Stakes double winner Militarize meanwhile looks lovely value as he kicks off his spring campaign as a $17 shot in the Run To The Rose with improvement to come over further later.
