Rosehill Tips January 8


Race 1 - 12:25PM TAB Highway Class 3 Handicap Tips (1200m)


Selections: 4,11,12,7.

4. STEPLEE resumes for his second prep, having won two of his last three over the winter and let down strongly on each occasion with big weights. There are no public trials, however J-Mac has the booking and it's not a deep Highway. Could he be a Country Championships contender?

11. Zoo Station won a Highway first-up last campaign, albeit it was 1400m and while 1200m is short, the testing nature may bring him into it. Each-way chance at a fair price ($12.00 @ BlueBet).

12. Danzadel is another that will improve over a little more ground, but is lightly raced and trainer Terry Robinson has a good record in the Highways.

7. Golden Point lacks some class of the above three, but in-form and hard-fit on a wet track, he has to be included.

Race 2 - 1:00PM Fujitsu General Handicap Tips (1500m)


Selections: 3,7,2,5.

3. OVERLORD managed to breakthrough, resuming at Gosford on December 23 and off a good tempo, sprinted hard from the rear. We go back three starts to see him start a second fav behind Mo'unga and while I'm loathe to trust him, he's the most talented runner in this and has been given time.

7. Fiordland was fair on Australian debut and after a farcically run Warwick Farm event, he got the win at Gosford on a heavy track. We'll get a better idea on his ceiling here.

2. Caesars Palace looks your likely leader, a gelding that dictated a similar race on Boxing Day and was just edged out. He was 25/1 on that occasion.

5. One Aye comes out of the same event as Caesars Palace, an honest and fit mare that draws for a softer run this time.

Race 3 - 1:35PM Precise Air Handicap Tips (1500m)


Selections: 9,1,3,2.

9. AND WE DANCED is the fresh one on the scene, a filly that had just the three starts in NZ, showing a nice turn-of-foot on debut and finished midfield in a Group 1 before joining Waller. She trialled better than King Of Sparta on December 14, with the last hit-out a little inconclusive. Betting?

1. Fashchanel dictated a similar race a fortnight ago and won easily, while she doesn't rise in the weights here, with the 3kg claimer now on. A genuine heavy track is the obvious query.

3. Saigon was terrific fresh and started fav versus Fashchanel, where visually she was quite plain, although to be fair, nothing made ground there.

2. Artic Thunder is another sub-par performer from that race, but was flat second-up last prep too, so could be an improver.

Race 4 - 2:10PM Midway Handicap Tips (1400m)


Selections: 5,11,1,17.

5. METRO LEGEND formerly raced as 'Cadenabbia', a galloper that showed some promise, but petered out in his three-year-old season and returns as a gelding. After a quiet hit-out, his December 20 trial was particularly eye-catching and he did win first-up on a heavy track last campaign.

11. Hasty Duchess saluted fresh on a Heavy 10 at Wyong and in a BM78 on Boxing Day, was never in contention after dropping out early. She only goes up 1kg for a drop in grade here.

1. Holy Reign would be on top if it wasn't for his three battling heavy track attempts, as the fresh run was a cracker and he has good second-up stats.

17. Oakfield Arrow put in a bizarre return and that wasn't the first time that the market has found her. Might be the blowout ($13.00 @ Neds),

Race 5 - 2:45PM Petaluma Handicap Tips (1400m)


Selections: 5,2,8,9.

5. YIYI appeared limited early, but really came on last campaign, winning four of seven outings and placed in the other three. While he eventually got to 2000m, he bolted in first and second-up in this range and was good in a recent trial. Is one of only two multiple heavy track winners in the field.

2. Darleb is in career best touch, arriving here off a winning hat-trick and carried weight via the latest victory over a mile. No knock back to 1400m and he does get through most conditions.

8. Kingsheir has plenty of raw talent and I loved his first run for Waller, which he was interestingly tipped out off. His wet track record is the biggest knock.

9. Papal Warrior is outclassed on paper, but suited by a heavy track, could be the value ($13.00 @ bet365), up on the speed with no weight.

Race 6 - 3:20PM Acy Securities Handicap Tips (1100m)


Selections: 1,3,6,8.

1. RULE OF LAW is flying for the new yard, backing up a terrific trial to win on a Soft 7 and repeated the dose second-up despite racing on firmer ground. Is paying back the new owners quickly and carries 60kg again, while staying in a BM72. A little harder here, but with speed to cross, he's hard to ignore.

3. Never Second has won three of her last four, including back-to-back December victories and a heavy track won't worry her. I'm suspect on the form around her, but is still the logical threat.

6. Astero was well held behind Rule Of Law, but against the pattern, was the run of the race outside of that winner. His heavy track record is terrific.

8. Miss Baltimore looked plain fresh, but was only beaten two lengths and has won her last two starts on heavy ground.

Race 7 - 4:00PM Ranvet Handicap Tips (1500m)


Selections: 6,1,8,2.

6. LOVEPLANET seemed one to oppose off just a fair return, but with question marks around these rivals, his favourite tag says more about them. Lightly raced and honest, the 1200m was a little sharp first-up, with the 1400m suiting now. Don't love this race, but he may just get it done by default.

1. Southern Lights had trialled up okay prior to his Australian debut, where he was back and didn't have the turn-of-foot to figure. Will get over further, although expecting some improvement here.

8. O'Mudgee can really mix his form, but often responds off a poor showing and is very capable on a wet track. Worth thought at a big price ($17.00 @ Palmerbet).

2. Canasta has improved following a poor start to the prep and should take up the running. Wet track is a concern though.

Race 8 - 4:40PM XXXX January Cup Tips (2000m)


Selections: 5,4,1,3.

5. CRIADERAS stepped to 2000m for the first time via the Summer Cup and stripping fitter with that 10-furlong run under the belt, we'll certainly find out now whether he runs the trip. If Stockman had taken him further, he arguably wins last start and while it's an open feature, he's the deserved fav.

4. Order Again was one of unluckier runs in that Summer Cup, travelling well before being put back in a pocket by Criaderas. He never balanced up and still wasn't beaten far.

1. Mustajeer is the class runner, albeit there's obvious queries resuming off an injury lay-off. There's been some early market support.

3. Attorney had excuses in the Villiers and was part of a somewhat busy finish via the Boxing Day lead-up event.

Race 9 - 5:20PM Chandon Handicap Tips (1800m)


Selections: 2,6,12,15.

2. ZEGALO keeps the services of 3kg claimer Tyler Schiller, who'll want to atone after the third-up tilt, a race he should've won. They needed to be closer, but were continually shuffled back and despite rattling home, it was too big of an ask. This is a similar event and Zegalo is unbeaten on heavy ground.

6. Niffler had her winning streak ended in that Zegalo race, albeit it was a narrow defeat. A heavy track is the unknown, but her first-up appearance on a Soft 7 resulted in an easy victory.

12. Casino Kid has been finding the line all prep without winning, but that's his racing pattern and he's been runner-up in all heavy track attempts.

15. King Ratel should be against easier company, but has been luckless in two runs this prep and might be a bolter ($41.00 @ BoomBet) for the exotics.

Race 10 - 6:00PM Rosehill Bowling Club Handicap Tips (1200m)


Selections: 4,5,2,1.

4. TRUE DETECTIVE reminds me of Bigboyroy, i.e. doesn't win out of turn, but is always thereabouts. He saves his best for Rosehill, especially when it's wet, as they're often suited whacking away on the speed. Off his listed winter form, he's very well placed in a BM88, with only 55.5kg after the claim.

5. Tycoonist is the deserving fav, a consistent sprinter that bounced back second-up. Does carry another 2.5kg here and while he made ground at Randwick, J-Mac will want him closer at Rosehill.

2. Matowatakpe has always needed a few runs, a trend that may continue, although he's trialled up twice for this return, looking more forward than usual.

1. Garibaldi is fringe stakes class and travels south for the powerful Tony Gollan yard. He's never raced on worse than a Soft 6.
