Early leader advantage predicted at Rosehill
Rosehill is currently rated a Good 4, with the rail out 3m the entire circuit and fine conditions predicted for Saturday.
The track has favoured leaders of late, with a slight bias towards on-pace runners and those horses finding the rail in the run.
With the rail out 3m on Saturday, expect on-pace to hold a slight advantage early, and then the middle lanes to be favoured later in the day as the heavy traffic takes its toll.
Taking that into consideration, we have found two runners early in the day that look set to take full advantage of the early track bias.
Rosehill Race 1 #1 Gem Song
Returns to his own age group here and looks ready to fire second-up.
First-up, he was unable to find clear running in the home straight after sitting on the rails behind the leader before running through the line well.
Drawn perfectly in barrier five, expect jockey Jason Collett to be afforded the run of the race sitting one out and two pairs back.
With predicted genuine pace in the race, Gem Song will be the first to strike when turning for home. This is where Collett should put a gap on his rivals.
The word out of the Kris Lees stable is that this is one of their more talented colts.
Gets the favours and goes on top. Gem Song is currently $3.80 fixed odds betting.
Rosehill Race 2 #2 Risk And Reward
Jason Collett will be looking for an early SMS double when he jumps aboard the Terry Robinson trained Risk and Reward.
Drawn in barrier nine, Collett will mark this runner urgent and head straight across to the rails where he will be able to dictate terms in front.
Getting back to a good track is a huge plus. His good track record is impressive, with two wins and two places from five starts
Stepping out to the 1500m for the first time is a query, but with an easy time of it in front he should prove difficult to run down.
With three runs under his belt, this gelding by Denman will be rock hard fit for this and ready to go one better here.
Risk And Reward is currently $3.70 fixed odds betting.
