A tricky nine race card at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday with reasonable sized fields to coincide with Flemington’s glamour Victoria Derby Day.

While most of the nation’s attention will be focused on Flemington, there are still plenty of winners to be found at Rosehill and we will try to help your Ladbrokes account with some suggestions below.

Race 3 No. 5 Fine Mist

The Bede Murray trained Fine Mist is dropping back in class and distance and gets her chance to re-enter the winner’s stall in the $85,000 BenchMark 93 Handicap over 1100m. Fine Mist was sent out the favourite in the Group 3 $125,000 Nivison (1200m) at Randwick a fortnight ago and was beaten less than a length when fifth after racing on the pace. The Good Journey mare is a winner over this course and distance and the 1.5kg claim for leading apprentice Winona Costin will be a huge advantage.

Race 4 No. 5 Dinghu Mountain

Dinghu Mountain from the powerful Chris Waller stable has trialled well in preparation for his return to the race track in the 1200m $85,000 BenchMark 72 Handicap for the three year olds and is among the main chances. Waller has given Dinghu Mountain two barrier trials for an eighth at Warwick Farm on October 9 followed by a much improved second over 900m at Rosehill two weeks ago. Jason Collett will be able to give the Snitzel colt a nice run midfield from barrier four in the eight horse field.

Race 6 No. 7 Moral Victory

Moral Victory is looking for back to back victories in the $85,000 BenchMark 85 Handicap over 1500m after scoring a narrow win over 1400m in a BenchMark 83 Handicap at Randwick two weeks ago. The Tim Martin trained Moral Victory was able to beat third placegetter Telepathic by a head and meets that mare 2kg better on Saturday, courtesy of apprentice Lester Grace’s 2kg claim. Moral Victory has drawn wide at gate ten in the eleven horse field, but he was able to use his early pace to overcome a similar barrier last start. The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Artistry has been good to us in the past and will be one to couple up in the exotics.

Race 9 No. 10 Duca Valentinois

There has been plenty of early support at Ladbrokes for John O’Shea’s Irish import Duca Valentinois who will be have having his first start in Australia in the 1350m $85,000 BenchMark 78 Handicap. It will pay to follow the money that has help firm the Holy Roman Emperor gelding’s price in from an opening quote of $4.80 to be the current favourite at $$3.70 on Friday afternoon. O’Shea has given Duca Valentinois two barrier trials and after finishing fourth at Randwick showed improvement to win a 900m trial at Rosehill a fortnight ago. While his two winning efforts in Ireland were over 2000m, it looks like O’Shea has him ready to perform well first up over the shorter 1350m course.
