There are 10 races taking place this Saturday at Rosehill Gardens with plenty of opportunity to build a bank.

Our full Rosehill – Saturday, 30th July Day Preview can be found below.

Race 1 - 11:20am AEDT

Highway Handicap (1200m)

These Highway races are often times won by progressive types who are lightly raced.

We get that with four year old gelding So Country who is yet to finish outside the top two in seven career starts.

He has won both of his starts so far this prep including a Highway race last time out at Rosehill on the heavy track, where he carried a similar weight to this event.

Race 2 - 11:55am AEDT

2YO Handicap (1100m)

Sweet Rise is a colt with a fair amount of ability which was proven when he took out the Black Opal in Canberra in February.

He followed that up with a second in the Group 3 Pago Pago on the heavy track at Rosehill at his next start before finishing down the track in the Golden Slipper.

The son of Deep Field has had two trials leading in including a soft five length win at Hawkesbury.

Race 3 - 12:30pm AEDT

Benchmark 72 Handicap (1300m)

Air To Air was last when rounding the turn at Rosehill first up but she made up considerable ground late in the race to finish within 1.62 lengths off the winner.

She closed out her last campaign when beaten under four lengths in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown and a repeat of that effort would see her competitive in this event.

Race 4 - 1:05pm AEDT

Benchmark 78 Handicap (1800m)

The Maher and Eustace trained Narrated won a trip to Brisbane off the back of a dominant two length win at Canterbury last month.

The daughter of Snitzel was beaten by only 1.55 lengths in the Group 3 Pam O’Neill at Doomben and that form is good enough to be winning a race of this quality.

Race 5 - 1:40pm AEDT

Benchmark 72 Handicap (1100m)

Shades Of Rose was well supported in a Benchmark 78 handicap at Rosehill last start, when she was run over late in the race to finish second.

Not a lot went right for her throughout the run after jumping awkwardly and racing keenly in the early stages.

She has won three of her five career starts, proving she is a very capable young filly and I’m of the belief that she is simply better than this grade of racing.

Race 6 - 2:15pm AEDT

Benchmark 72 Handicap (1300m)

Kanazawa broke through for a much deserved win in a similar race to this one last start at Randwick by two lengths.

The three year old gelding has proven himself on all surfaces and has missed a place only twice in seven career starts.

Stays in the same grade and the apprentice will give some weight relief.

Race 7 - 2:50pm AEDT

Benchmark 78 Handicap (1800m)

Aramis is a talented three year old gelding who has won his last two in a row.

He was a dominant three length winner at Gosford two back before narrowly claiming the Grafton Guineas in his last outing over 1600m.

Barrier three is perfect for him and the apprentice will claim two kilos, which means he gets in with a very light weight.

Race 8 - 3:30pm AEDT

Listed Winter Challenge (1500m)

Oscar Zulu has been racing well within winning recently and was only narrowly denied in the Listed Civic Stakes behind Taksu two back.

He was beaten under three lengths on the heavy track in the Listed Winter Stakes last start but he drops four kilos for that effort.

Kerrin Mcevoy claims the ride and will steer from barrier 13.

1 Unit E/W Oscar Zulu

Race 9 - 4:10pm AEDT

Benchmark 94 Handicap (1100m)

Enchanted Heart was far from disgraced in her trip to Queensland during the winter.

She finished within 3.25 lengths of the winner in the Group 2 Dane Ripper at Eagle Farm and well down the track in the Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara.

Both of those races were on the good track and she has a far better record on the heavy where she has won three from five.

James Mcdonald gains the ride and she represents good value at her current quote of $8.00

2 Units E/W Enchanted Heart

Race 10 - 4:50pm AEDT

Benchmark 78 Handicap (1300m)

I’m keen on another couple of Australian Bloodstock horses at nice each way odds in the last.

Snowzone has finished inside the top four in all seven of his starts this prep and relishes the heavy track.

He has a tricky gate to overcome but Tyler Schiller will use his claim for some weight relief.

Tawfiq Lass is another mare racing consistently at the moment and she comes into this race off the back of two impressive victories.

Both of those wins have been on a heavy 10 and she is yet to miss a place from six attempts over 1300m.
