Rosehill Quaddie Preview
Race 6 – Sydney West App Handicap (2000m)
Selections: 2, 4, 9, 11
AL GALAYEL (4) is a Ciaron Maher-trained import who can do a bit wrong, but may be looking for 2000 metres now. SWEET VICTORY (11), a 3YO filly who is on trial at 2000m, should roll forward and give a good sight. RAQEEQ (9) was a big improver second-up last preparation, and is a big chance here if repeating that. CHATELARD (2) is on a seven-day backup, unsuited last start and should get a better run here.
Race 7 – Winter Stakes (1400m)
Selections: 1, 3, 9
DREAMFORCE (3) is in sensational form this prep and clearly the one to beat, while INVINZABEEL (9) has an outstanding Rosehill record and will need luck from the gate, but has a chance. HIFLYER (1) is a Kiwi with solid credentials, should be included.
Race 8 – TAB.com.au Handicap (1200m)
Selections: 11, 13
ALBUMIN (13) is absolutely flying with the blinkers on. Up to 1200 metres here but in a moderate tempo that shouldn’t be a problem. DRACHENFELS (11) is trialling very nicely and clearly set to run a race first-up.
Race 9 – ATC Owner Benefits Card Handicap (1500m)
Selections: 2, 14, 15, 17
SPARKY LAD (15) has had plenty of racing but should get a good run here if he jumps cleanly, and he’s found a very winnable race. NICCI’S GOLD (14) is another 3YO with more upside than most here. Has a chance. Expect improvement from MAPMAKER (17) on a drier surface. Will roll forward and get a good run here. HIGH MIST (2) is in great form and this isn’t much stronger than recent assignments.
