Previous Rosehill Tips:

August 12


We are looking at new ground here and potentially a new star. We've not seen a horse debut in a Highway yet, but we have one here in ANOTHER SIN. He's a 3YO. He has had just one trial and he jumped on the bunny and won it with his head on his chest. The second horse home in that trial, came out and won impressively, as did the 3rd horse home in the trial. And Another Sin beat them pointlessly. He might be red hot. LIFESAVER is unbeaten in two starts and the wins have stamped him as very smart too. He'll keep the new boy honest.


I was completely convinced that ETYMOLOGY is a top flight horse after watching his barrier trial run during the week. He's very strong late and has enough pace to be handy. Is Gr 1 placed and I think he is set for a big campaign starting here. WASHINGTON HEIGHTS is suited this grade and trip. He's also in great form while TOM MELBOURNE has been a massive disappointment past 6 starts. But new trainer here and can place.


Tough race but the first 3 home in that mares BM 73 two weeks back should fight this out too. They were SUSPENDERS, FAITH'S ENCORS and SLUMBER PARTY. There was about 1kg between the three of them and about a length between them at the end. Slumber Party meets them both much better at the weights this time and will be in the lead from the get go. Looks tough to run down.

Not all that sure why Hugh Bowman moved off COSMIC ENGINE in this to ride REACH FOR HEAVEN. On form, the Kris Lees filly can't beat Cosmic Engine who looks to my eye very well off at the weights. He should park up 4th or 5th throughout then unleash down the centre of the track. The pace will be on all the way with ARBEITSAM in front for a good portion of the race.

Race 7 - 3:20PM $150,000 WINTER CHALLENGE (1500 METRES)

This is the big race of the day. And I like the big horse, the toppie GOLD SYMPHONY. This time Hughie got it right I think as he will settle this bloke back off a hectic pace and from this great draw he will be there to win at the 200m. SHIRAZ came with a strong run last start to just miss indicating this trip may suit and SLIGHTLY SWEET beat most of these at big odds last start. If she repeats she goes very close again.


Again weights and measures are the prevailing rule here meaning I like the Godolphin galloper PHILOSOPHY. Is drawn to get the best run of the race and with weights in her favour this time, and now 3rd up, she looks primed to out sprint them. REIBY RAMPART is a similar horse with similar talent and has similar weight so has to be included while AWOKE was very impressive last start when winning easier race.

July 15


Promising galloper BULALA is 3rd up here. Has earned the top weight and should be running on. COSMIC REIGN may make a mess of these. Has a bad draw but form this time up is outstanding for this. Hughie rides too. BUDDY HONEST has been up a while but showed great speed and only just run down in what was a better field than this. Ridden same way here, may take so much catching.


BARBASS ran a great race at Highway level last start and in fact was a little unlucky. Is very honest. But I like HIGH MIST. He has taken a bit of time to find form but is talented enough to be right in this now he’s super fit. VAUCLUSE BAY is going to be in the frame. He’s just honest and can run on.


KING DARCI was a star in this grade when last in work. Big weight here and being 2nd up may pose an issue, but class will help. MANA is a consistent galloper and is in well here and is racing in career best form too. Saying all that, I think FAITH'S ENCORE is a class mare when right. Sure it’s been a while, but with Kerrin McEvoy engaged you’d think she is ready to fire. Resumes here but watch market.

Race 3 - 12:35PM $60,000 TAB HIGHWAY HANDICAP (1500 METRES)

Tremendous Highway. Top three look to have it in the bag though. Forever Newyork is talented, even though a bit hit and miss. He can muster good speed midrace and with the claim here rates highly. So too Zamex who won a Highway recently racing clear final stages. Tough draw though makes him place chance. THE FRICK seems the one. He is an emerging talent from Mudgee and he can sit wherever he wants to from this great draw. Greg Ryan has many options because the horse can accelerate in straight. He’s going for 3 on the bounce here.

Race 5 - 1:45PM $1200,000 TAB REWARDS HANDICAP (1500 METRES)

Despite the big weights this might be a day for top weights. KELLYVILLE FLYER has a fair bit on these in class. She can really sizzle home when her mind is into it and added benefit here, she loves it wet. Big danger. Signposted led and battled on well for 5th this grade last start. Fitter now, while LIAPARI should be near pace from this great draw all the way.

Race 6 - 2:25PM $100,000 KENSEI HANDICAP (2000 METRES)

Good strong winter staying field this. DESTINY"S KISS is 2nd up here but does have far better form than all of these - has won over $1million thank you very much. Also loves it wet and despite big weight, should race home strongly. TUCANCHOO is close to a win. Chased home the only speed in the race all the way to the post last start and gets in better at the weights this time. Supply And Deman was that speed and should lead and run boldly again.

What Bets To Place at Rosehill Races

There are a number of ways to bet on horse racing this weekend from a standard win or place bet to quadrellas and multibets. 

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way (see our guide for what an each-way bet is), the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race. 

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched.
