This Rosehill Guineas is always one of the more anticipated features of the early autumn, with a maturing three-year-old crop now getting out to 10 furlongs.

Champions such as Phar Lap, Tulloch, Ajax, Kingston Town and Octagonal are some of the stars to have taken out this famous race which was given group one status in 1980 and dates all the way back to 1910.

Off a runner-up finish in the Randwick Guineas, Mo'unga is the $3.30 favourite with Palmerbet for the 2021 Rosehill Guineas.

2021 Rosehill Guineas Tips

2021 Rosehill Guineas Best Bet - Mo'unga

He could be the shining light for the Australian middle distance/staying ranks is this colt who looked quite lacklustre in his trials but still performed superbly first-up in the CS Hayes Stakes and the blinkers went on for the first time in the Randwick Guineas.

It was the biggest of all eye-catching performances from the son of Savabeel there, where after being blocked for a run early in the straight, was forced to come off the rail and switch all the way out to the middle lanes, where he hasn't balanced up until the 50m before launching late.

Ability has taken Mo'unga a long way but that key gear change last start could be the making of him and suited by drawing out a shade more in gate six compared to barrier two last week, he can announce himself on Saturday.

2021 Rosehill Guineas Next Best Bet - Montefilia

While this filly was the proven class runner going into the Surround Stakes as a dual Group One winner last spring, the market support off a pair of trials which indicated that she would need further than the 1400m was surprising.

Although the last 600m times don't quite back it up, that return performance was visually much better to that of Hungry Heart's, a frustrating galloper who managed to peak off that outing when winning last Saturday's Phar Lap Stakes and Montefilia was the strongest through the line from the backmarkers.

The 1400m to 2000m second-up isn't conventional, but being a lightly framed three-year-old, she does come to hand early in her campaigns before tapering off later which was evident last spring, where she recorded back-to-back feature wins in seven days but had trained off after that fourth run ahead of the VRC Oaks.

2021 Rosehill Guineas Value Bet - Sky Lab

Despite stepping up to Group One level now off Benchmark races, Sky Lab does find himself back against his age group for the first time this preparation, bringing different form lines to the Rosehill Guineas and at 88 level, was aiming a fourth straight win on February 27.

Sustaining a long run but still bolting into to score first-up at the Provincials on a Heavy 9, there's a few ways of looking at the second-up victory that followed as he was admittedly in the worst part of the track, so it had merit but on the other hand, was extremely fortunate to get that run given James McDonald rolled off the fence with the favourite.

To the eye, it was just a run in that last outing but as a type that does need to be building momentum earlier, the son of Real Impact wasn't suited attempting a passage from the rear in restricted room late, but was still fair on the line.
