Rosehill Guineas 2024

Ladbrokes Tip: The Randwick Guineas – Rosehill Guineas is a popular autumn betting double.

The Rosehill Guineas takes place at Rosehill Racecourse in March as part of the elite Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival action on Golden Slipper Stakes Day.

The meeting, usually held on the third Saturday in March, features five top-level races including the Rosehill Guineas run over 2000m for three-year-olds. Run at set weights the colts and geldings in the Rosehill Guineas field carry 56.5kg while the fillies carry 54.5kg.

Many of the three-year-olds in the race come out of the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) contested over 400m less at Randwick a fortnight earlier and the double was last achieved by It’s A Dundeel (2013) and The Autumn Sun (2019).

In 2022 Anamoe improved on a Randwick Guineas second to turn the tables and defeat his last start conqueror Converge in the Rosehill Guineas. The following year the Chris Waller-trained Lindermann (2023) also ran second in the Randwick Guineas before his all-the-way Rosehill Guineas success.

The Rosehill Guineas is also a nice lead-up into the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) over the mile and a half on Doncaster Mile Day during The Championships with the Rosehill Guineas winner exempt from ATC Derby ballot. The last horse to do the Rosehill Guineas – Australian Derby double was Criterion (2014).

The latest edition of the Rosehill Guineas ran on Saturday March 23, 2024 on the popular Golden Slipper Day card in Sydney as a key ATC Derby lead-up and was won by Chris Waller’s VRC Derby champ and race favourite Riff Rocket ($2.70F).

Rosehill Guineas Betting

Rosehill Guineas betting odds favour three-year-olds that ran in the Randwick Guineas earlier in the autumn in Sydney or New Zealand gallopers coming out of the NZ Derby.

Favourites have a strong recent record in the Rosehill Guineas with eight saluting for the punters recent times, most recently: It’s A Dundeel (2013), Tarzino (2016), D’Argento (2018), The Autumn Sun (2019), Mo’unga (2021), Anamoe (2022), and Riff Rocket ($2.70 in 2024). 

Three-year-olds displaying staying potential are dominant in the Rosehill Guineas odds as are those drawn in barriers 1 – 8.

The most successful Rosehill Guineas barriers in the past 30 plus years are five and eight. Barrier two also produced back-to-back Rosehill Guineas winners in 2015 and 2016.

In 2023 Lindermann scored an upset from barrier eight of eight. His stablemate, Riff Rocket, won from gate seven in 2024 as the favourite for Chris Waller.

Rosehill Guineas Field

The Rosehill Guineas race field attracts a varying number of final acceptors each autumn. Low numbers contested the race in 2013 (8) and 2015 (7), while in 2014 the winner Criterion defeated 14 rivals in a 15-starter Rosehill Guineas field.

There were just six runners in the 2022 Rosehill Guineas field when Anamoe won by a blistering seven length margin.

Lindermann won in 2023 defeating just seven rivals in another small eight-horse Rosehill Guineas field from the outside alley.

Riff Rocket beat 10 rivals in 2024.

Two races produced all but one of the 15 Rosehill Guineas winners from 2009 – 2024 with the champions coming via either the Group 1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) or the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

In 2016 Tarzino came off an Australian Guineas second in Melbourne for his win in the Rosehill Guineas.

Riff Rocket was third in the Australian Guineas over the mile at Flemington before his Rosehill Guineas victory in Sydney in 2024.

While the Rosehill Guineas field is open to both male and female runners, the last filly to beat home the boys in the classic was Riverina Charm back in 1989.

Rosehill Guineas nominations close on a Tuesday in early February, with the final field of acceptances and barrier draw released on the Wednesday of race week.

2024 Rosehill Guineas Field

The official 2024 Rosehill Guineas Final Field & Barrier Draw will be published in full below the Wednesday of race week.

The Rosehill Guineas 2024 field attracted a quality line-up of young staying types led in betting by the Chris Waller-trained Riff Rocket chasing a Group 1 win third-up out over a more suitable distance.

2024 Rosehill Guineas Scratchings Update:

Rosehill Guineas Tips

Rosehill Guineas tips favour the promising young stayers in the field that come out of the earlier Sydney lead-up run in the Randwick Guineas.

The Randwick Guineas has produced more Rosehill Guineas than any other race and backing the first or second past the post in that mile clash is a good tip when it comes to the second of the Guineas races.

Backing in-form horses drawn inside of barrier eight and avoiding the fillies in the markets based on the historical data are other good Rosehill Guineas tips.

2024 Rosehill Guineas Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Rosehill Guineas 2024 betting tips on the three-year-old autumn staying types to back and sack in the clash this autumn will be detailed below a few days out from the race so bookmark this page.

  • To Win: #2 Riff Rocket ($3 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Sticking with Chris Waller’s VRC Derby champ Riff Rocket third-up and getting out over a suitable trip now. He takes over from scratched stablemate Militarize at the top of betting and looks hard to beat over the 2000m against his own age here. Fresh he surprised with that impressive Group 3 CS Hayes win over only 1400m. Third last time out in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) two lengths beaten with 57kg. Nash Rawiller rides, good draw, and extra distance. Looks a winning chance.

Rosehill Guineas Form Guide

The Rosehill Guineas form guide shows all the essential information on the field including the jockeys, trainers, barriers and lead-up form of all the horses.

Of the 16 Rosehill Guineas winners from 2009 – 2024 five came off a win, something punters can look for in the form guide.

Anamoe franked the 2022 Rosehill Guineas form returning that spring to win five Group 1 races on the trot including the Cox Plate at The Valley.
