Mark Shean Best Bets – Saturday 19th May


Rosehill Gardens - Race 2 12.05pm AEST

No. 6 Lisdoonvarna

Lisdoonvarna ran really well in the Carr Stakes, where she sat three wide outside the lead on the fast pace. She did well to battle on – even though she finished seventh – in that race won by Moss Trip. From the barrier here she should roll forward and suit in the first couple, the distance suits and I think she is a bit of value.

Rosehill Gardens - Race 3 12:40pm AEST

No. 5 Epidemic

Epidemic won first-up and I think that she can do the job again. She had to go back in a slowly run race, but there looks to be a lot more speed engaged here. Epidemic should get the speed to suit and I think that she will be rattling home in the final stages. She can make it back-to-back wins.

Rosehill Gardens - Race 5 1.55pm AEST

No. 3 Roman Son

Roman Son is short here, but he does look tough to beat. He was beaten first-up, but he has bolted in in his next two starts and I can’t find a horse that looks likely to beat him here. I think he will get the job done.
