Rosehill Tips April 27

Race 1 - 11:30AM ATC Bookmakers Recognition Day Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 11. Rantan. Ability got her home via an impressive debut performance at Newcastle on April 3 and she landed a strong betting push as an odds-on fav.

900m was on the sharp side there and the task was made even greater after she was snagged back during the run, but her turn-of-foot proved too strong late.

She ran the fastest last 400m and 200m of that card and that form looks okay, with the runner-up winning this week, while the third-placed galloper was second in the Wellington Boot.
Value: 1. Pisces. This Godolphin two-year-old returns as a gelding ahead of his second campaign and he's been under a firm hold in two autumn trials leading into this.

Pisces upset Madrina on debut at Kembla in December and the form through that runner-up is okay, as she then placed behind King Of Roseau, who was thereabouts over the carnival.

Although he was well-held, the son of Frosted still placed behind Straight Charge and Erno's Cube before a break, and the double figure quote is a tad surprising off those form lines.

Race 2 - 12:05PM Midway Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 14. Broadway Bouncer. After showing potential with back-to-back provincial victories last winter, Broadway Bounce went off the boil in three subsequent runs.

Kristen Buchanan has turned around the son of Kermadec, with the gelding running strong closing splits as runner-up to Well Timed and that winner then placed in a Provincial Qualifier.

He looked a good thing and saluted as such two back before running into a very handy Bojangles last time, where the first two cleared right out and he did cover ground there.

Value: 11. Eye Pea Oh. She won a Midway off a very similar platform in spring, with the mare producing a cracking fresh run at Warwick Farm via an October return.

It was the same story when resuming a Canterbury on April 17 and she may have won that fresh outing with a better draw, with Eye Pea Oh recording the fastest last 400m of the meeting.

She was able to settle closer when taking out an 1100m Midway second-up on October 28 and from barrier four here, they can adopt those positive tactics.

Race 3 - 12:40PM Phillip Picone Handicap Tips (1500m)

Best: 9. Unusual Legacy. 1500m may prove too slick for Unusual Legacy, but he's got plenty of upside and the Chris Waller-trained gelding will likely be the one to follow out of the race.

The lightly raced four-year-old was very fresh when second via his Australian debut on January 11, but he improved with racing, having won his next two.

There was more merit to the Canterbury triumph than the margin indicates, as he was unsuited in a slowly run affair and he was stepping to a metro BM72 from a provincial BM64.

Value: 2. Highlights. While he can often work well in lead-up trials, Highlights always needs the first-up blowout, so I'm prepared for forgive his return effort on March 30.

He's also down in grade for Saturday's assignment and since that most recent resumption, the son of Your Song has won a tick-over trial at Randwick over 1050m.

The speed in this race is questionable and he's one that can make his own luck, especially from barrier two, while he's placed in four of six second-up attempts.

Race 4 - 1:15PM TAB Highway Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 13. Martini Mumma. The early market was always going to trend towards this filly, who is aiming to make it a hat-trick at just start four in her second campaign.

Martini Mumma was given time following an even debut performance in spring and she's really furnished as a later three-year-old, having bolted in with two country events.

Five other winners have been produced from her Wagga maiden on March 5 and while it was only a BM58, it's still never easy to come out of maiden company and win by six lengths.
Value: 4. Zaru. He's a regular on the Highway circuit and while Zaru isn't the easiest horse to catch for punters from a winning perspective, he's generally thereabouts.

He saluted in a Class 2 Highway last winter over a useful Melody Again and in the spring, the six-year-old did place in a metro BM72 on the Kensington circuit.

I thought it was a strong BM64 that he resumed in at Wyong on April 11 and given he got home well in that return run, a top three/four finish here wouldn't surprise.

Race 5 - 1:50PM Dennis Jamieson Handicap Tips (1300m)

Best: 10. Proverbial. These fillies & mares 78's are often tough and this 1300m version is no exception, where you can make a case for just about all of them.

Although she's up in grade, this doesn't appear to be all that much harder than the BM72's that Proverbial has been contesting and she has been ticking over fairly well.

A galloper has been tried at this level, the six-year-old looks suited up to 1300m and along with carrying 4kg less from her last run, she maps for a nice run just off the leading few pairs.

Value: 8. Southern Chilli. This Ciaron Maher-trained mare is no star, but she's very honest and off her first two performances this campaign, this is well within her reach.

Southern Chilli ran the best closing splits of her latest outing via BM72 on the Kensington circuit and that winner backed that performance up with the midfield finish in a Group 2.

1300m is perfect at this stage of the campaign, as she's lacked brilliance when it's mattered over shorter trips and she'll get a gun run on the speed from gate two.

Race 6 - 2:25PM Hot Rod & Custom Show Handicap Tips (1200m)

Best: 1. Let's Try. This four-year-old was consistent over his second campaign last spring, having recorded two wins and three seconds from five attempts that prep.

A strong son of All Too Hard, Let's Try was very impressive as a well backed fav on return, where he kicked away despite working hard on a strong speed, which easily could have left him vulnerable.

This could be the campaign where he puts it together and chalks up a few metro wins, while as far as Saturday races go, this BM72 is certainly on the weaker side.

Value: 6. Yiska. This gelding produced a cracker first-up off a long break, where he worked home in restricted room over 1000m at Warwick Farm.

Yiska was a touch flat following that, but it was the prep run he needed coming off a big spell and the gelding put in an encouraging third-up run at Canterbury last time.

Sam Clipperton was too negative in that April 17 attempt and with the visors on, along with a strong fitness base now, there's no reason why he can't be given more of a chance early.

Race 7 - 3:00PM Farewell James Ross Sprint Tips (1100m)

Best: 15. Kazou. The daughter of Zoustar is a dynamite fresh performer, with a victory over this track/trip last time in a race that she nearly threw away vs Commemorative, who she gave 7.5kg to.

I'm happy to forgive the second-up as an odds-on fav at Cranbourne, as lameness was detected along with a slow recovery, while the subsequent form through Revolutionary Miss is strong.

Her return has been put back due to last two races being abandoned on April 20 and with the speed to offset the gate, she's now found an arguably weaker race to resume in.

Value: 7. Wategos. This Bjorn Baker runner improved out of sight last campaign, having recorded a winning hat-trick last winter and he worked through the grades in the process.

Although he didn't salute after his Murwillumbah Cup win, Wategos was still competitive at a stronger level and he was spelled after sixth-of-twenty finish in the Big Dance.

He's a versatile galloper in regards to distance, given he's a multiple winner over 1000m, while he also won over six furlongs last time in, so he has to be respected here off two trial wins.

Race 8 - 3:35PM Vale Lonhro Handicap Tips (1500m)

Best: 4. Waterford. Although he hasn't progressed after showing plenty of promise early in his career, Waterford was still mostly competitive throughout last spring.

He looks forward going off his trials and while weights of other acceptances could've been a deciding factor, Tommy Berry not sticking is somewhat strange (he was on last week).

He's another that's found a slightly weaker race after being forced to miss last Saturday and the five-year-old loses nothing with Nash Rawiller in the saddle.
Value: 5. Cosmic Vega. While he didn't measure up, connections thought enough of Cosmic Vega to have his Australian debut run come in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes.

The Ciaron Maher-trained import didn't figure there, however, he's been given a little more time and with a softer draw in an easier race, he could easily improve out of sight.

Cosmic Vega has since been back to the trials, where he worked fairly in a Warwick Farm heat and with 2kg less, along with a kinder map second-up, he ticks a few boxes.

Race 9 - 4:15PM Matt Behrmann Handicap Tips (1800m)

Best: 10. Gan Teorainn. It's well and truly D-Day for this Chris Waller-trained mare, who should have finished closer at Gosford last start and that followed a Group 3 return at Randwick.

It's been a little difficult to place her in Australia, as while her overseas form suggests that she's a miler, the four-year-old has been one-paced in 1600m races Down Under.

1800m could be her ideal distance, as she has been a little vulnerable when tried at 2000m and with blinkers on third-up, there's no excuses down in the weights.

Value: 12. Camaguey. Although he's only won the one race since joining Kim Waugh, Camaguey is a consistent type and he's collecting cheques for the new connections.

1500m on a Soft 7 was no easy task when resuming in the Muswellbrook Cup, but he held his own in that fresh outing and he should relish the extra 300m here.

The five-year-old stays down in the weights and along with the extra distance suiting hefre, a return to firmer ground is also in his favour (all wins have come on good tracks).

Race 10 - 4:50PM Luke Lucas Handicap Tips (1300m)

Best: 7. Starman. He's bursting to win a race and while he's had some chances this campaign, Starman continues to race well and the form around him had stood up.

Amor Victorious was airborne at the time and another galloper to come from that January 27 event was Estadio Mestalla, who took out a BM88 at his very next start.

That reads well for this, as does the form through Kintyre (Group winner last week) and he gave 4.5kg to a talented McHale last time out, who is a very progressive stablemate.

Value: 14. Eastern Glow. The five-year-old saluted for us at big odds at Warwick Farm last winter and he followed that up with a second in the Dubbo Cup.

They broke the class record for the 2023 edition of that country feature, which was taken out by Iknowastar, who franked that form with city wins at his next two starts.

That performance and his Little Dance effort suggests that a metro BM78 is gettable and he drops 5kg second-up off a solid chasing effort at Canberra.
