Race-by-race tips and preview for Rosehill on Wednesday

Selections based on a good track.

Race 1 – 2:20PM JAMES SQUIRE PLATE (1200 METRES)

5. Kirragirl wasn’t fancied on debut but produced a promising effort where she raced handy stuck on to run fifth beaten three lengths. Did have her chance but better for it, draws one and finds McDonald to ride. Good chance if she can lift off it.

race-by-race tips and preview for rosehill on wednesday

Racing returns to Rosehill on Wednesday.

Dangers: 6. Makena was placed at Canterbury in May before a handy fifth in a Listed race in Brisbane. Fitter for two trials and stays under notice. 8. Pajanti is another lightly raced filly who showed glimpses in her first preparation. Improved to win second trial in good style and could show up. 1. Alvina’s Luck was placed in three of five starts in her first prep and nothing wrong with her recent trials. Each-way chance.

How to play it: Kirragirl WIN.

Race 2 – 2:55PM DRINKWISE PLATE (1200 METRES)

8. New Forest narrowly missed his maiden win before a spell at Canterbury in November, nabbed in the last stride. Has won two trials and draws to be prominent, if he’s come back a bit stronger he should take running down.

Dangers: 3. Chevron didn’t disgrace in the G2 Sires’ in Brisbane last winter and went stride for stride, under a bit more riding, with Shadows Of Love in his latest trial. Goes back from the barrier and should be hitting the line strongly. 9. Northern Eyes was a beaten favourite in two runs in December over a bit more ground and comes here fresh with a tickover trial in between. Respect with JMac on board from a soft gate but no surprise if he wants more ground. 5. Invader Zim was solid in betting first-up at Canterbury and worked to the line well without threatening. Back 50m and drawn to go back but sure to be running on.

How to play it: New Forest WIN.

Race 3 – 3:30PM YARRAMAN PARK HANDICAP (2400 METRES)

1. Yarrawonga will be the horse to run down and it comes down to how much pressure is applied on him. Just held them off over this trip at Warwick Farm three weeks ago and rises 2.5kg on that. Hard to beat.

Dangers: 7. Wilshire Boulevard comes through the same race where she finished a solid third and gets a 4.5kg swing in her favour. Did have her chance by the same token but is the up and comer. Go well. 2. Monfelicity tries 2400m for the third time in her career and has placed once at the trip. Boxed on over a mile in a Midway last time at Randwick, has the ability to be in the finish. 4. Angel Of Light has been thereabouts without winning in similar company and this will be her second shot at the trip. Drawn to get a soft run and has a show.

How to play it: Yarrawonga WIN; Trifecta 1/ 2,4,7/2,4,7.

Race 4 – 4:05PM TAB HANDICAP (1500 METRES)

1. Cormac T is an interesting import first-up for the Neasham stable and any support for him will be a big pointer. Appreciated a rise in trip in his latest trial and did the job quite well. Placed in all four starts overseas and is worth keeping very safe.

Dangers: 7. Autumnmation has been a bit a bit costly this time in with a defeat at $1.40 second-up but she kept coming in her subsequent placing at Kensington when up to 1400m. The extra ground again may assist and she’s worth including. 2. Limburg has also been costly and switches states after being run down at $1.90 at Moonee Valley over a mile. Blinkers go on and expect he’ll roll forward from the wide gate. Has claims. 6. Little Jeanie is an ex-Kiwi first-up for Chris Waller and she did catch the eye late in her trial at Rosehill recently. Another market watch.

How to play it: Cormac T EACH-WAY.

Race 5 – 4:40PM GHAIYYATH FIRST YEARLINGS HANDICAP (1500 METRES)

3. Mare Of Mt Buller looks a progressive type with two wins from as many starts this time around, and she returns after a short pause since her Canterbury win seven weeks ago. Easy tickover trial in the meantime, draws well and should take plenty of beating.

Dangers: 4. Waikato Girl hasn’t done anything wrong in three starts and was a slight drifter when runner-up at Kensington two weeks ago on resuming. Tricky draw but with even luck she should be around the mark. 6. Our Gold Hope is another up and comer who won a very good form race when scoring at Hawkesbury second-up. She was a bit green there too but showed a nice turn of foot. Could easily be up to this. 8. About A Girl was solid in betting at her first local start at Warwick Farm and wasn’t disgraced there running a close fourth. Better for it and worth another look.

How to play it: Mare Of Mt Buller WIN; Trifecta 3/ 4,6,8/4,6,8.

Race 6 – 5:15PM VINERY YEARLINGS HANDICAP (1100 METRES)

9. Balkans was a shade disappointing first-up as a gelding two weeks ago over the 1000m but he did keep coming and they sprinted home in under 33 so it was hard for him to make ground. Should be reasonable tempo here and he’s worth another chance.

Dangers: 4. Lovero ran right up to her short quote when leading all the way to an easy Canterbury win a month ago. Since been to the trials, yet to run a bad race and she can be expected to be competitive. 2. Introducing was well supported first-up at Warwick Farm and didn’t quite go on with it from on speed when fourth behind Thunderlips. Blinkers go on and he could be an improver. 10. Xtra Gear is an interesting runner first-up for Joe Ible and she has trialled quite nicely on two occasions, the latest at Goulburn beating Front Page. Each-way claims.

How to play it: Balkans EACH-WAY.

Race 7 – 5:50PM SHARP EIT SOLUTIONS HANDICAP (1400 METRES)

7. Infinitive hasn’t had the best of fortune in two runs back and she’s down a notch in class on a close up sixth at Randwick when a firmer in betting. Back to 1400m but looks suited and this is a good chance for her to break through.

Dangers: 3. Cadetship is hovering around a win of late and almost jagged one when narrowly beaten at Warwick Farm three weeks ago. Expect he’ll be around the mark again. 6. Soldier Of Rome looked beaten early in the straight last time but kept fighting and held them off over this trip to score a game win. Better for it too as he was up 300m second-up. Wide gate but goes forward. Must include. 8. Queen Of Dragons was stakes placed before a spell and trialled up okay at Randwick a few weeks back. Kicks off at a suitable trip and drawn nicely. She can run well fresh.

How to play it: Infinitive WIN.
