Best Bets

RACE 5 (4) AFRICAN DAISY: Honest mare came up well in her first start for new stable when a close second in this class over 1200m at Warwick Farm. Open to obvious improvement and gets conditions to suit as she is very good on affected tracks and boasts strong course and distance credentials.


RACE 6 (10) IN FLIGHT: Handled the conditions confidently over this course and distance two weeks ago to record her second win in three starts since resuming. Has paid the penalty with a 3kg increase but she stays in the same class and her last start form is strong with the runner-up coming out to win at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.


RACE 9 (15) TESTATOR SILENS: Made good improvement second up to finish runner up over 1300m at this course two weeks ago when he gave 5.5kg to the flying winner Elson Boy. Fitter and well placed this time as he carries 4.5kg less and has been out of the money only once in five Rosehill starts. Should respond well to the strong riding of his new rider Nash Rawiller.

Why They Can Win….

RACE 1: (15) EMMADELLA – Improving filly has been finding the line well. Will appreciate lighter weight.

RACE 2: (10) TOES IN THE WATER – Good effort this course and class before on pace Goulburn win. Benefits from a 3kg claim.

RACE 3: (9) NAVAL COMMISSION – Keeps delivering as he rises in class and distance. Ready for 2400m with 7kg drop in weight.

RACE 4: (11) DECADENT TALE – Strong Randwick win on her preferred soft surface. Should hold that form.

RACE 7: (2) WATERFORD – Recent efforts indicate he is ready for his first crack at 2000m. Nash Rawiller back on is key.

RACE 8: (5) SILVANITO – Form this prep first class but nothing went right this course last time. Well placed in same company with less weight.

RACE 10: (9) KAPAKIRI – Lot to like about his first-up third in a strong form race at this course. Sure to appreciate the extra trip.  

RACE 11: (4) KAZOU – Nice trial since she was placed here first-up in April. Right conditions for another bold fresh showing.

WARWICK FARM June 17: Second Sydney trial by ABERLOUR, a stakes winning filly from New Zealand where she won three of her first six starts up to 1600m. Led the fastest of the two 1200m heats and ran them along at a good clip that she sustained all the way to the line (74.60; 36.27).

RANDWICK June 14: The fastest 1050m heat (63.59; 34.60) was a competitive affair and featured some nice efforts, not the least being the closer DEVIL’S THROAT. There were a host a promising efforts in the 740m heats from horses having quiet trials. FORTINGALL is a nice rising 3YO prospect from the Waterhouse/Bott stable. The unraced colt by I Am Invincible has now won two of his three trials with this effort his best to date. Sat off the pace in his 740m heat before running into it from the 400m and putting in strong work over the last 200m for a stylish win in good time for the session (43.52; 33.21). Sure to be competitive on debut.

ROSEDHILL June 11: FIELD WIRI won the fastest of the four heats over 1030m (62.99; 35.49).

WARWICK FARM June 7 (Poly):  The import REDSTONE WELL never came off the bit to win the quickest of the two 1175m heats (72.29; 34.67) in his first trial since March.
