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



Race 3:  No.4  WATERFORD  ($2.50 with bet365)

The Chris Waller-trained WATERFORD had no luck in the Silver Eagle but gets his chance to bounce back here. Last start, the Irish-bred galloper drew the carpark (gate 14 of 14) in the Silver Eagle and was never on the track when finishing unplaced in the 1300m event at Randwick. Despite never getting a clear crack at them, he still ran his last 600m, 9.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here by more than 3 lengths. Drawn much better here, Tommy Berry returns for this assignment and is unbeaten on the three-year-old, boasting three wins from as many rides. Already two from two at the track and distance, he will take beating here.



Race 5:  No.9  MARS MISSION  ($2.80 with Unibet)

The Team Hawkes-trained MARS MISSION is second-up here and looks every chance of improving enough to take home the chocolates in this event. Last start, the Deep Field gelding was fresh off a six-month absence when he finished a gallant third in a BM72 Hcp over 1100m on a heavy Warwick Farm track. He ran a new personal best that day, covering the trip, 3.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, second-best to Monte Ditto who is resuming here. Already a winner when second-up, Zac Lloyd sticks with him and after the claim, carries 3.5kgs less than last start. Up slightly in grade here, he is drawn nicely in gate three and maps to settle right behind the speed. With a clear run to the line, he should prove a real handful for this field to hold out.



Race 6:  No.8  QUALITY TIME  ($4.80 with bet365)

Chris Waller and Tommy Berry team-up again here with QUALITY TIME who is in career-best form and looks every chance of making it four-straight and taking home the Cup. Last start, the Amaron gelding brought up the hat-trick and as our ‘Anchor Bet’ for the day, took out the Port Macquarie Cup comfortably in the end with Tommy Berry aboard. He ran the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race that day as he crossed the line more than a length in front of them, carrying 56kgs. This is a little harder but he drops 2kgs here and has Berry sticking with him, who is two from two on the four-year-old. Already a winner at the track and unbeaten over the trip, he should prove more than just competitive against this field.
