Racing was at Rosehill on Saturday August 10 for the running of the Missile Stakes (1200m), while at Flemington, the feature was the Aurie's Star Handicap (1200m). 

Here is our round up of the day as we take a look at where the major players are headed next. 

Rosehill wrap: Alizee oozes class in the Missile, Dawn Passage eyes the Golden Rose

With the spring just around the corner, the big names are beginning to reappear and Alizee gave us a taste of things to come when she stepped out in the Group 2 Missile Stakes at Rosehill. 

Sent out a short priced $1.30 favourite, the Godolphin mare cruised past the field a long way from home before being eased up late in the race and eventually holding on from the fast finishing Invincible Gem, while the old warhorse, Le Romain was three lengths further back in 3rd position. 

The multiple Group 1 winning mare is a chance to represent the stable in the $14 million Everest (1200m) later this year with Godolphin to weigh up their options as Osborne Bulls makes his return in the coming weeks. 

In the short term, Alizee could line up in the Winx Stakes (1400m) in a fortnight, while the Sheraco Stakes (1200m) in September is also an option. The Kris Lees-trained Invincible Gem and Le Romain are likely to next be seen in the Winx Stakes. 

Other key winners at Rosehill included the well bred Subedar, who took out the opening race over the 1400m journey and may now rise in class to tackle the Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) on August 24. 

Haut Brian Her continued her good form and will continue to progress through the grades, while Rosebud (1100m) winner, Dawn Passage, will be aimed at the Golden Rose (1400m).

Flemington wrap: So Is Bon puts it together to score in the Aurie's Star

It was a blowout at Flemington in the Aurie's Star with the punters nemesis, So Si Bon, taking out the Group 3 from Malibu Style and Sesar. The Hayes/Dabernig galloper broke a frustrating run of outs for connections and seemed to relish the Heavy track at headquarters at his first run this campaign.

The stable will target the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) next month, while the Toorak Handicap (1600m) is also on the agenda. 

Earlier on the programme, Heirborn, made it two wins from was many starts when he claimed Race 2 over the 1400m for three-year-olds. The Anthony Freedman-trained galloper will continue to progress through the grades and all going well, he may line up in the Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in October. 

Looking Ahead

Racing is at Caulfield on Saturday August 17 for the running of the Regal Roller Stakes (1400m), while the new season three-year-olds step out in the Vain Stakes (1200m) and the Quezette Stakes (1200m). In Sydney, the action is at the Randwick Kensington track.
