Rosehill Tips August 8


Rosehil Best Bet - Race 2 No. 4 Royal Banquet

This gelding has been faultless since a third placed debut finish back in early 2019 where he's been unbeaten in four attempts following that which includes a winning hat-trick this time in.

By Snitzel and out of a group two winning mare in Twilight Royale, Royal Banquet is quickly working his way through the grades by ticking off a Country Class 1, Provincial Class 2 and scoring in his city debut at Warwick Farm on July 29.

That was his most brilliant victory to date when ploughing through a Heavy 10 surface for a 5.3 length margin and with 59.5kg on his back, was spotting weight to every opponent that came in well behind him,

He drops a whopping 5kg off that performance with the smart claim of Tom Sherry and as one of the few reliable gallopers in this field that is holding form, Royal Banquet can continue to build his picket fence as the best bet at Rosehill this Saturday.


Rosehill Favourite - Race 4 No. 5 Heart Of The Oak

The late betting moves could tell us more with this five-year-old who's resuming off just the one trial but does map as well as anything on this card.

Heart Of The Oak is prepared by master trainer Gerald Ryan who's saddled up 21 winners from his last 100 starters and prior to a Group One Surround Stakes tilt and then PJ Bell attempt, she defeated a subsequent group two winner in Positive Peace when first-up last preparation.

A potential heavy surface is the query with this mare, however, she did win the fastest 900m heat at Rosehill on July 17 which was the last trial for the morning on a Heavy 9 track with the promising debut winner Quatum since being produced from that line-up.

There's no speed on paper in this fillies and mares line-up and settling handy under James Innes Jnr with just 53kg on her back, Heart Of The Oak should get every chance to produce fresh again.


Rosehill Feature Tips - Race 7 No. 5 Flit & No. 2 Mister Sea Wolf

We get a little glimpse at the upcoming spring carnival via Rosehill's feature event this Saturday with the running of the Group Two Missile Stakes (Alizee and Pierata won the last two editions).

The 2019 Thousand Guineas winner Flit looks a key hope for Godolphin and is arriving off a strong trial at Hawkesbury on July 20 when closing off superbly for second and was as impressive after the line when surging clear.

A key gear change is the blinkers going on from that with the shades on being a recipe that saw her score fresh in a comfortable victory via the Group Two Lightfingers Stakes last autumn.

One to include as a bolters chance at big odds ($26.00 via Palmerbet) is the Chris Waller-trained Mister Sea Wolf who's getting under the guard with all the Melody Belle attention from that July 31 trial, a heat in which he trialled every bit as well (to the eye) as the Missile Stakes favourite.

Whilst he has been a little hard to catch over the journey, Mister Sea Wolf has finished in the top three in nine of 11 first-up attempts to date which includes a third placing in the Group One Canterbury Stakes last preparation when resuming.


Rosehill Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Minted

This three-year-old was rising massively in grade last time out when coming from a Class 1 win at Newcastle with the drop in trip from 1200m to 1100m being unfavorable on July 27.

After a slightly tardy getaway, Minted worked early under jockey Tim Clark just to tack on to the field and was another unlucky galloper throughout the day to have drawn an inside alley and as such, wasn't able to find the better ground out wide.

Although he couldn't reel in Varda (completed a winning hat-trick) and Partners (had won his last two outings), he was able to safely hold He's A Shotshot on the line despite it finding the better part of the circuit and the first four home were clearing out somewhat from the rest of the field.

The preparation has been spaced out to date for Minted who has a wider draw for Tim Clark this time around and over an extra 100m, he appeals as a nice each-way play in the Rosehill penultimate.

TAB HANDICAP Tips (Race 9)

Rosehill Value Bet - Race 9 No. 8 Fender

An interesting acceptor for the last at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday is this gelding from the Brett Cavanough stable in Scone who was unbeaten from three starts in his first racing preparation.

A son of Toronado who's one the best up and coming stallions in the country and has already produced plenty of quality over his first few crops, Fender rounded his campaign with a Highway victory back in April.

For the class, the time of that six-furlong event stacked up rather well given the other two races over that trip on that program included a BM88 (taken out by Snitz who won a listed affair following that) and a strong Group Two Hall Mark Stakes, which Fender's winning time got within three lengths of.

He's trialled up superbly in readiness for this and we have to respect the city placement here that may see the untapped and talented Fender put his hand for a Kosciusko berth should he make a good account of himself.


Race 6: 3,4,5,11
Race 7: 2,4,5,10
Race 8: 6,7,10
Race 9: 1,8,9
