The slipper fits for Artorius

March 25, 2021

Saturday

Rosehill Race 5 – G1 Rosehill Guineas – 2000m
#4 Milford – $13
#6 Wheelhouse – $12

Looking for rock hard fit horses over the 2000m in testing conditions. Milford was narrowly beaten in the NZ Derby on a wet track, looks a dour staying type who will relish today’s assignment. Wheelhouse was forced to cover ground last start and raced well to only be narrowly beaten, fitter now and 2000m suits.

Rosehill Race 6 – G1 George Ryder Stakes – 1500m
#1 Kolding – $6.50

Rock hard fit now fourth up and interestingly, was a dominant winner 4th up last prep. Bowman sticks but will need to push on early from out wide. Ready to win. 

Rosehill Race 7 – G1 Golden Slipper – 1200m
#3 Artorius – $9.50/$3.10

Has a real motor this colt. With the likely wet track and a fair bit of speed engaged, this shapes as a Slipper that will turn into a battle of attrition. Not many win the Blue Diamond and the Golden Slipper but this colt can.

Rosehill Race 8 – G1 Galaxy – 1100m
#2 Dirty Work – $14/$4

Was one of a few unlucky runners in the Oakleigh Plate and that form has proven to be strong since. Looks plenty of speed on up front in the early stages and with a little more luck this time around, can swamp them late.
