2019 Golden Gift Best Bet – Tanker @ $3.00


Racing experience here will be crucial for Tanker, who already has a win under the belt in a field packed with first-starters.

The Maher and Eustace-trained two-year-old scored impressively by 2.3 lengths when making up good ground in the straight.

He scored a trial win at Randwick to prepare for this and that’s a good sign. It shows he can right-handed.

Tanker is the horse to beat

2019 Golden Gift Best Value – Blaze A Trail @ $6.00


It’s never easy to win a race like this as a first-starter, but Blaze A Trail looks a likely candidate.

The colt by Criterion has looked impressive at the trials, recording a 6.5 length win at Randwick. He then followed that up with a one-length trial win at Rosehill.

If he can bring that form into the first ever run on the competitive track he'll be right in the mix in this event.

2019 Golden Gift Best Roughie – Vucetich @ $9.00


Godolphin two-year-olds are invariably safe bets and Vucetich is no exception.

Vucetich ran second behind top pick Tanker at the trials and that’s a good preparation to have for this run.

While he hasn't confronted the starter in his career, he’s a son of Lonhro which means he could be a star in the making.

He has been respected in the betting and he’s a must-have on the Golden Gift exotics.
