Rosehill Racing Tips For May 16 2020

The second day of the Scone Racing Carnival will be run at Rosehill in 2020 which sees the Group Three Dark Jewel Classic and Listed Inglis Guineas headline a strong Saturday card from Sydney.

There is a chance of rain on Thursday afternoon (mostly clear after) for what is currently a Good 4 track and the rail is in the 3m position throughout.

Inglis 3YO Guineas Tips (Race 4)

Rosehill Favourites - Race 4 No. 4 Masked Crusader

This son of Toronado was the talk of last week's Randwick card when he dismantled a Benchmark 78 field in very soft fashion.

Whilst I believe that field wasn't anywhere near as bad as many pundits have suggested, this is a different beast in a small line-up where he takes on the outstanding last start Hawkesbury Guineas winner in Dawn Passage.

That colt was dominant on April 25 after racing three wide throughout whilst other opposition here in Rocha Clock, who bounced back impressively second-up and even likely leader Bandersnatch, are both very capable.

It's a fascinating Inglis Guineas contest and as one the more promising young horses on the scene presently, there'll be plenty of eyes on Masked Crusader who tackles listed level for the first time.

Vinery Stud Benchmark 78 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Rosehill Roughie - Race 5 No. 12 Oneness

Whilst it was admittedly at Scone, a wide gate was the only thing standing between this gelding and victory via the same race last year and he did beat home a handy Southern Lad in the process.

His form has been a little patchy since then with some mixed efforts on the Provincial or Friday night circuit but has still been mostly competitive.

After looking as though he was just there to go around first-up on April 17, he's had a recent trial when ridden out to score in decent time and has the winkers going on for the first time.

The rating is the worry for Oneness, however this isn't a strong Saturday race and racing handy from a low draw, he can perform better than the rough quote suggests.

TAB Luskin Star Stakes Tips (Race 6)

Rosehill Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Graff

On ability, this four-year-old from the Kris Lees yard should be making light work of what is rather weak listed affair in the sixth from Rosehill.

Unfortunately talent doesn't necessarily equate to winning results which has been evident for this entire who after winning the Group Three San Domenico in 2018, has threatened but still hasn't been able to deliver.

Whilst the recent wins aren't there, around one length defeats over numerous races behind the likes of The Autumn Sun, In Her Time, Sunlight, Redzel and Pierata, is enormous form for an event such as this.

This is truly d-day for Graff who can lob close enough to what appears to be a slow speed and show the best turn of foot at the business end when it matters.

Coolmore Denise's Joy Stakes Tips (Race 7)

Rosehill Best Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Fituese

The $55,000 dished out at the 2018 Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale to secure this daughter of Deep Field is looking a very savvy purchase by the Prime Thoroughbreds team.

Prepared by the John Thompson stable, Fituese had an outstanding first racing preparation when winning three of her first four outings and was at the end of her campaign when not beaten far in the Gosford Guineas as a well supported favourite.

The May 2 return victory was first class when ridden to score by nearly three lengths and as a black type target, I'd be surprised if this fillies listed event hasn't been eyed off for some time.

Fituese drops 3kg off that last start victory and drawing for a lovely run in a field that does have a long tail to it, she's superbly placed to make it win number five as the best bet at Rosehill.

Arrowfield Ortensia Stakes Tips (Race 9)

Rosehill Value Bet - Race 9 No. 4 God Of Thunder

This four-year-old and Villami pretty well finished next to each other last start via the Listed Hawkesbury Gold Rush and off that, there's a decent discrepancy in the early markets between them this time around.

By More Than Ready and out of a group two winning Fastnet Rock mare in Jolie Bay, he's put together a handy record to date with four wins and six placings from fifteen starts to date.

The Rosehill 1100m record for God Of Thunder is strong with two victories and two thirds from four attempts, and minus the Flemington February 29 flop down the straight, has been super consistent over his last two campaigns.

With potentially a little more pressure up front and camping off the speed, God Of Thunder makes value appeal on an each way basis in the last from Rosehill.
