Rosehill Tips - May 18

Race 4 - 1:15PM JIM CASSIDY HALL OF FAME HANDICAP (1500 METRES)
STAR OF THE SEAS just about appears to be a permanent fixture in recent Sydney Saturday races with the Chris Waller-trained mare set to line up for her seventh start since February. The four-year-old has won or placed in all of those and is set to be there again at the business end. She won two on the trot at Rosehill in March and gets back to her favoured track after missing out recently at Randwick. She was luckless in the most recent of those when being forced out wide around the bend. The 2kg claim for the apprentice hoop, Robbie Dolan brings her right into this and with even luck from the barrier she should be hard to hold out. 

Race 6 - 2:35PM JB CUMMINGS HALL OF FAME HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Race 6 is a BenchMark 78 for the fillies and mares and I am pretty keen on the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained RELEEM IN RUBY. The promising galloper has had five starts for two wins and was victorious in her most recent of those when clearing away in the dying stages over the 1300m at Warwick Farm. She ran quick time that day and the form out of the race has held up since. She should get a nice steer with Tommy Berry on board and is the one to beat. 

Race 7 - 3:15PM LORD MAYORS CUP (2000 METRES)
This might be a bit of a 'wait and see' as SIXTIES GROOVE is the first emergency in the Doomben Cup (2000m). But if the Kris Lees-trained galloper can't sneak into the field for that Group 1, the lightly raced six-year-old should be hard to beat at Rosehill. In the recent Hawkesbury Cup (1600m) he ran 3rd to Archedemus and was doing his best work late in that race. The step up to the 2000m is ideal as he has an impeccable record over the distance with four wins from as many starts. They boast a win over Trap For Fools last year, while he is also a two time second up winner.

Race 3 - 1:50PM TAB TULLOCH STAKES (2000 METRES)
MADISON COUNTY is a star three-year-old in New Zealand and was far from disgraced finishing 4th behind The Autumn Sun, Fundamentalist and Nakeeta Jane in the Randwick Guineas (1600m). He was 3rd behind the unbeaten Sword Of Osman before taking out the Group 1 2000 Guineas (1600m). Following a two-month break, he scored fresh-up in the Group 1 Levin Classic (1600m) and was then 3rd in the Karaka 3YO Classic (1600m). He simply got too far back in his Australian debut but really caught the eye flying home. After three runs over the mile, he’s screaming out for 2000m and can prove too strong for Cossetot and Carif who looks to have a lot of upside. 
Result: 2nd

Race 4 - 2:30PM JIM BEAM EMANCIPATION STAKES (1500 METRES)
ALIZEE just looks a class or two above these, and based on her previous campaign, she should be ready to peak. She was far from disgraced finishing 3rd behind Mystic Journey and Hartnell in the All-Star Mile (1600m), but it seemed like she just didn’t run a strong mile out. Last campaign, her ultra-impressive Queen of the Turf (1600m) win came when dropping back from 2000m at her fifth run which is probably why she was so dominant over the mile against the fillies and mares. Fifth-up this time in and she now drops from 1600m to 1500m which should see her powering through the line. Prompt Response won this event last year and Alizee beat her by two lengths in the Queen of the Turf. 
Scratched

Race 9 - 5:45PM THE CHAMPIONSHIPS ON SALE HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
I want to stick with STAR OF THE SEAS who will shape as serious contender for the Doncaster Mile if he wins this. The Ocean Park gelding is very progressive and clearly put in a PB last start when stepping up in grade and defeating Mahalangur who again lines up in opposition. Mahalangur meets Star Of The Seas better at the weights but I’m worried that first-u run on Heavy 10 may have taken a bit out of him, while Star Of The Seas was third-up and the testing run would have brought him on further. 
Result: Won ($2.30)

March 23


Race 2 - 1:10PM CAMERA HOUSE DARBY MUNRO STAKES (1200 METRES)
CLASSIQUE LEGEND is one of the most exciting up-and-coming gallopers in NSW. He was far too good on debut and then tackled BM70 company and won by six lengths and was eased down with 30m to go. Kerrin McEvoy still hasn’t asked him for a supreme effort in a race, and I’m sure he’s got another gear to use if needed. The Godolphin horse, Wagner, ran over a shorter trip on the same day and ran slower sectionals, and I can’t see him beating Classique Legend. Gem Song looks hardest to beat, but I’m expecting Classique Legend to make it three in a row. 
Result (2nd)

Race 3 - 1:45PM IRRESISTIBLE POOLS N E MANION CUP (2400 METRES)
Yes, Yes, Yes! And I don’t mean Chris Waller’s Golden Slipper hopeful. I’m excited for ONE FOOT IN HEAVEN to find a wet track. The import is yet to win in Australia, but he went close in the St Leger (2800m) last spring behind Big Blue who is first-up on Saturday. Big Blue had two hurdle races before the St Leger, and this time around he’s only been given a short trial and a hurdle trial – I’m guessing the Sydney Cup is his target and he’ll be underdone. One Foot In Heaven really caught the eye first-up in the James Ruse (1500m) at Rosehill on a Soft 7 and immediately went into the black book. Despite having an inkling he needs a wet track, I stuck with him last start in the Randwick City Stakes (2000m) on a Good track, and despite not being suited on the going, he was only 3.9 lengths from Hiyaam and Shraaoh. He now meets Shraaoh 2kg better at the weights and should be ready to run a big race over a suitable trip on a suitable track. 
Result (4th)


March 16


Race 1 - 1:00PM CATANACH'S HANDICAP (1350 METRES)
I’m sticking with the Chris Waller-trained STAR OF THE SEAS who has been runner-up over 1000m and 1350m this campaign. On pace runners where favoured in his most recent start and it was a big effort to come from 9th on the turn and finish 2nd to Archedemus. Drops 5kg here and only has to carry 52.5kg which should see him charging home for Kerrin McEvoy.
Result (1st - $4.20)

Race 5 - 3:35PM CHANDON S PHAR LAP STAKES (1500 METRES)
QAFILA strikes me as an outstanding value chance in an open race. Having contested the VRC Oaks (2500m) in her last run for the spring, first-up over 1400m was going to be tough – but she won impressively. She finished 2nd in the Wakeful Stakes (2000m) in the spring beating home El Dorado Dreaming who is my top pick for the Group 1 Coolmore Classic on Saturday. First-up over 1400m she ran three lengths quicker than Jamaican Rain did on the day and she also lines up in the Coolmore Classic. Her Caulfield run was three lengths slower than Alizee’s time in the Futurity, and she goes into the All-Star Mile as favourite. All of those form references are strong, and at $14, she’s over the odds at a great each-way price. 
Result (4th)

Race 7 - 4:50PM COOLMORE CLASSIC (1500 METRES)


Result (2nd - $4.80 Place)

Race 9 - 6:10PM ANZ BLOODSTOCK NEWS HANDICAP (1900 METRES)
Team Hawkes should have some fun with SUPERNOVA who was very impressive last start when making his Australian debut. He settled well back in the field and worked home strongly to finish two lengths behind Sondelon over 1500m. He won his maiden first-up over 2240m at Goodwood and then won a 2400m ratings 85 race at Doncaster before finishing runner-up to Charlie Appleby’s Ghostwatch over 2800m at York. He’s sure to improve over further this campaign, and his second-up record suggests he’ll improve on Saturday. 
Result (1st - $4.40)
