Rosehill Tips for Saturday, February 24

Our form expert provides Rosehill tips for Saturday’s horse racing at Rosehill Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 7:  No.6  LADY LAGUNA

Annabel Neasham saddles-up LADY LAGUNA here who comes off a hat-trick of wins and is staring another in the face. Last start, the Overshare mare kept her winning streak going when she brained them in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes, here over 1200m. It was no surprise to see her put two lengths on that field as she ran the trip in 1:08.7, which is really travelling for the 1200m trip. J.Mac was aboard that day but has switched to the Chris Waller-trained Zougotcha who is first-up here. Tyler Schiller is the new pilot for this assignment, having already steered the mare to victory in the Listed Nudgee Stakes, (three starts back at Doomben). Already a two-time winner here, she will take a power of beating in this contest.


The team at GoldenRush have a hot promo at Rosehill this week and are offering $3.50 for Lady Laguna who is currently around $2.25 with most bookmakers. Follow this link to head to the special market for Rosehill R7.



Race 8:  No.1  TOM KITTEN

The James Cummings-trained TOM KITTEN is second-up here and looks a real threat over the 1400m. Last start, the Irish-bred galloper looked all at sea in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes over the shorter 1200m trip. While preparing for bigger targets in the Autumn Carnival, this looks an ideal race for him to show some improvement and with Nash Rawiller back in the saddle, he can surprise in this contest. Already a winner second-up and a winner at the track, he maps to still settle back in the field but has more ground here to use in the run home. With aa clear run to the line, the Godolphin galloper can get the job done.



Race 3:  No.8  DIPSY DOODLE

The James Cummings-trained DIPSY DOODLE is second-up here after a lengthy absence but did enough at Scone to suggest she can take out this contest. Last start, the Lonhro filly jumped from the outside gate and in the end, did too much work early as she led, but faded to finish third in a BM88, here over 1200m. Her resume shows she needs a run before firing and after drawing wide again, it will be interesting to see what tactics J.Mac applies as he sticks with the filly. Down in grade and back in distance, the conditions here look ideal for her. Already a winner when second-up and a track and distance winner as well, she may take catching here.
