Roughies Back our roughies for the weekend

Looking for roughies tips to back at big prices on Saturday? We pick out the best three roughies to back each week.

Racing heads to Ballarat on Saturday, while the Group 1 action is in Perth for the Railway Stakes.

We have looked through the fields at both venues and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way.

Rosehill plays host to some group racing and MILITARY ZONE can bob up at a price in the Festival Stakes. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained galloper didn’t have much luck at all in the Sydney Stakes (1200m) on Everest day when never really clear en route to finishing 8th behind Trumbull before getting back in a slowly run race at Hawkesbury in the Ladies Day Cup (1600m). However, he has been a third up improver in the past, while he should get a decent tempo here with Miss Siska and Irithea among a group that will inject some pace into the race. At his last campaign he improved 10 lengths on benchmark figures between his second and third up runs when narrowly missing out at Group 3 level at Eagle Farm, while he has drawn a decent barrier for the first time this preparation. The blinkers go off for the first time and he is worth a crack at nice odds.

LEITER represents value in the final event of the day at Moonee Valley. The five-year-old resumed with an upset win in the final race of the Flemington carnival recently, scoring from I’m Telling Ya over the 1200m and comes to Moonee Valley where he has won one and finished runner-up in his two starts on course. In his Flemington win he went five lengths faster than standard and on last start figures only Housay has produced something slicker. At his last campaign he improved off a 7th at Caulfield to finish runner-up over the 955m at the Valley before winning over the 1200m. The son of Wanted will need luck in the early stages from the barrier but if he can find a spot he might get his chance as the tempo looks genuine, while the rail is in the true, which normally means those that like to run get a bit more of a chance at the Valley as compared to when the rail is out. Lewis German takes the 2kg claim and at the $11 the pair can go very close.

I’m pretty keen on Trekking in the Winterbottom Stakes but I will be having an each-way play at VALOUR ROAD. The Simon Miller-trained gelding comes out of the Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m), which is the pick of the Perth lead-up races and could only manage 7th on the Heavy track that day. But he did have to work hard from the wide gate and sat outside the leader before the tough run told in the end as he finished three lengths behind Celebrity Queen. He was a winner at Group 3 level over the 1000m prior to that at Ascot, while he has performed well over the 1200m in the past and defeated Tofane at Group 2 level in Adelaide last year at the trip. He heads into this fourth up and at the same stage of his last preparation he went nearly 10 lengths faster than standard when claiming the Miss Andretti Stakes at Ascot, while he should enjoy a charmed run from barrier 3 on Saturday.
