2020 Golden Rose Tips

Golden Rose 2020 Best Bet - Rothfire

Looking to solidify his claims as Australia's best three-year-old in the 2020 Golden Rose is this powerful gelding from the Queensland stable of Robert Heathcote.

His one and a half length victory was dominant via The Run To The Rose lead-up event on September 9 where he was able to absord the early pressure of Farnan before exploding away late to put a space on a very talented group.

Rothfire has already proved his 1400m claims via his outstanding victory in the Group One J.J Atkins and as the market reflects, he looks clearly the one to beat off his first-up win.

Golden Rose 2020 Value Bet - Peltzer

This $1 million dollar feature has been the target a long way out for this son of So You Think who was unbeaten from three attempts over the autumn with slick times recorded on a few occasions.

Coming in off the one trial on August 29, he just couldn't match the speedy Anders over 1100m and faced another sharp task in the Run To The Rose when forced to chase again and he's clearly more comfortable dictaing proceedings himself.

Whether he can do that or not on Saturday is an unknown, however, he gets the benefit of barrier two and if he's any chance of rolling Rothfire, Kerrin McEvoy needs to take that early risk for this 1400m assignment where he should be suited by a more rolling tempo over this journey.
