Nine races will be run and won at Rosehill this Saturday, and while there are no feature races, the depth is pretty good. Here are my five plays across the meeting.
Bet One- Win- Race One Number 1 Sebrakate
I’m keen to take on the favourite and go with the proven two year old. Hard to knock a youngster that is unbeaten and that is what Sebrakate is for the Hayes/Dabernig team, winning 2/2 to start his career, both in Adelaide.
The second win saw him beat two rivals, but the debut win was the one that was impressive. Cuddled and when clear, showed a lovely turn of foot. Is that good enough? I’ll back the judgement of the stable. I think he should be fav.
Bet Two- Win- Race Two Number 3 Coterie
Another that I think should be a touch shorter. Really like this three year old for Gerald Ryan, who is 2/2 this time in.
Massive win first up at Wyong before going to Gosford where he was on speed and proved too good. Has really good form around him and continues to step up to the plate. I think he can measure up here on his home track. $5.5-$6 is acceptable.
Bet Three- Each Way- Race Three Number 2 Lawan
I think he’s the each way gamble of the afternoon. This bloke ran in a 1400m Highway at Randwick a month ago and ran a beauty in defeat I thought when second to Tristan De Angel.
Stable has had a really good record in the Highway in recent times and third up, he should just about be ready to show his best. Think he can only run well.
Bet Four- Each Way- Race Six Number 8 Gamblestown
Bludger, but I could back him 1×3 at near $20 given his liking for Rosehill. He comes through the Sky Boy race at Randwick and I thought his run was excellent given they slowed right up in the middle stages and he was out the back. Did a good job to make ground.
Tends to save his best for Rosehill and he’ll do me each way.
Bet Five- Win- Race Seven Number 6 Dyslexic
Back on top of the ground, keen that this mare can bounce back. This mare was well backed when resuming in the Nivison at Randwick three weeks ago and I thought she was very good in seemingly the quicksand behind Resin. Second up stats a tad misleading given second up last prep she ran a beauty behind Houtzen. That reads well for this.
