Race 1 - 1:15pm

Roadwork Solutions Handicap (1200m)

Creator produced an eye catching run in a 900m trial at Canterbury on the the 13th of November and has been well supported.

The Godolphin two year old’s have been flying of late and based off her win at Rosehill, Kiamichi must be considered.

I’m happy to watch the youngsters go round in the first however.

NO BET

Race 2 - 1:50pm

2018 Members Handicap (1400m)

Baller looks a lovely type of horse. He simply did too much work in front when he was last here at Rosehill. He showed his versatility last start by coming off the speed and was impressive through the line. The distance is a query but I’m willing to give him another go at the 1400m as he is flying.

Race 3 - 2:25pm

Highway Handicap (1400m)

Vega De Lago has been enormous in his two runs this prep. He should get a lovely run from the inside barrier and will appreciate both the drop in weight and rise in distance. Worth an each way play at the big odds.

1 Unit Each Way Vega De Lago

Race 4 - 3:00pm

Summer Racing Handicap (2000m)

Etymology is having his fifth run in this prep and is ready to peak. The 2000m is a bit of a query for me but I was happy with the way he hit the line behind a smart one in Sky Boy here at Rosehill two weeks ago.

2 Units Etymology

Race 5 - 3:40pm

ATC Tipping Competition Handicap (1400m)

I thought Sir Bacchus was impressive first up but he is a very hard horse to tip with his racing pattern.

Man Of Peace is a very consistent horse who can give punters hope with the light weight and good draw at double figure odds.

1 Unit Each Way Man Of Peace

Race 6 - 4:20pm

TAB Rewards Handicap (1400m)

This is a hot race but I have been impressed with Hussterical’s two runs so far this prep. She set the pace and tried to take on a very good horse in Seasons last start and she will appreciate the step up to 1400m. She has drawn well and Tim Clark jumps back on having ridden her to her last victory in April.

2 Units Hussterical

Race 7 - 5:00pm

Merry Christmas ATC Members Sprint (1100m)

Albumin represents good value and is an excellent fresh horse. He has three wins from three starts at the track and distance and should get a gun run from the inside.

Bon Amis tapered off at the end of his campaign last time in but was very consistent in the Provincial Champs heats and final. He is another with a great record over the track and distance which I think is very important at a track like Rosehill.

Race 8 - 5:40pm

Christmas At The Gardens Handicap (1500m)

I tipped Asterius at the big price first up and I’m not jumping off now after he savaged the line late. He gets out to a more suitable distance here, in fact his only start at the 1500m at Rosehill was an impressive win over Sparky Lad in a higher grade.

3 Units Asterius

Race 9 - 6:15pm

Australian Turf Club Handicap (1300m)

I would have liked to see her finish off a little better first up but Lisdoonvarna should appreciate the 1300m second up. Peter Wells can settle her a little closer to the speed from gate 3 and she will be finishing strong late.
