ROSEHILL R1 #9  OH SAY  $3.60

This filly looks a nice jump and run two-year-old. She led that Rosehill trial and was able to hold off the challenge from Pressita and Covent Garden late, without being asked for an effort by the jockey. The most recent trial, she did much the same, she was narrowly beaten, but she was under a hold and looked to get through the heavy going with ease. The winner there was under heavy riding. Expecting her to lead here and prove hard to catch.


This daughter of Helmet looks to have improved a lot since being transferred from Mornington to Ballarat. Her jump-outs at Mornington were very plain last year but she looked to show good speed  at her most recent jump-out on the synthetic at Ballarat. She went to the line with Ocean’s Fourteen, that galloper was beaten less than a length in a benchmark 84 at Caulfield in January. Behind them was Wicklow Town who has subsequently won a maiden impressively and a nice benchmark 64 race. The favourite for this race, Feline Advisory was also behind her in that jump-out and has since performed well when beaten by a potential handy one last start. #16 MACHALI has shown ability in track work and can be forgiven for the first up run on heavy going.


It has been a painful journey so far following this guy. He has been to the races six times and ran 2nd five times. He has raced well this time in and has just bumped into a couple that look above average. With those runs under the belt he should be reaching peak fitness and should be in the finish. It also looks a race that I will be playing the exotics and including #9 MARINE BELLE who has shown ability at the Flemington jump-outs and was slowly away last start. #12 GLINT caught the eye at the Caulfield jump-outs back in January when she joined Statement of Faith at the end, an older filly that has already won a race. #4 Pal’s Reward must go in to run a place and #13 Absolute Control to run a drum for F4’s.


I tipped this imported galloper last start when he was making his Australian debut. He was trialling well and looked like he would improve as he stepped up in distance. He worked home well there first up, running the fastest last 200m of the race, but the winner had snuck too much of a break on the turn. The extra 100m will help and the long straight here.


She ran well first-up at Goulburn. Running 2nd to Hoopla who only got away late to win by a length on the line. Hoopla looks above average and I think the form will hold up. She should take huge improvement fitness wise from the run and may get an uncontested lead here.


I think this guy is progressive and can go through the grades. He butchered the start at Morphettville and then was hampered at the 200m mark when trying to let down. Hopefully, he can turn the tables on Silver Lining here.
