Sydney racing selections: Rosehill tips for Saturday, June 5

The first meeting of winter sends us off to Rosehill for a nice card with surprisingly big fields for this time of year.

The track, as usual it seems, is in the soft range. I have high hopes for a fair track with a mixed bag of where my selections will come from.

The less said about May the better. I am still idling along nicely for the year. Now that the super blood moon has passed us by, I’m thinking things are looking up.

Dixie’s 2021 tally
Outlay: 228 units
Return: 344.3 units
Stats are based on one unit being equal to a $1 win bet, New South Wales dividends. See the comments for any changes based on scratchings or track condition.

Sydney racing selections

Race 3 – 10 Don Arcangelo (one unit)
I am kicking off with the three-year-olds over 1800 metres. Don Arcangelo only broke his maiden last start, but gave them a good beating at Hawkesbury and Team O’Shea think highly of him stepping straight to Saturday grade. He has drawn a terrible alley. I am backing Tommy Berry to get him into an okay spot three or four pairs back.

Race 4 – 16 Born A Warrior (one unit)
Today’s speculator is so speculative at the time of writing they haven’t even found him a jockey (J: Unknown)! He’s won once from 15 starts, but has been all around it earlier this prep before stepping up in distance. He comes back to 1200 metres for this and gets in with a nice weight. I’ll dabble. Of the others, Scream and Shout has won both starts this preparation and is on the up (15-16 quinella anyone?). Rubamos is next best.

Race 5 – 8 Royal Banquet (one unit)
Although he’s having his first run in almost a year, Royal Banquet has a bit on these if he’s near his best, and will love the give in the track. Friday’s rain gives him the tick over He’s a Hotshot, who needs a dry surface. Up Trumpz is a chance at odds.

Race 6 – 13 Altimeter (two units)
I am quite keen on the lightly raced Altimeter. He thrashed them at Kembla last time carrying a big weight and drops to 54 kilos. Some early money for him is a tick for me too. I’m going to leave out Air to Air today and fully expect her to bolt in without my cash on. She’s well due.

Race 7 – 12 Knight’s Order (two units)
Knight’s Order rates nicely on top in the 2400 feature. The Clark/Waterhouse/leader combo is a profitable one and his form out to this sort of distance last prep was good enough for this. Stockman is next best, running for the third week in a row. He’s a happy horse right down in weight.

Race 8 – 14 Welsh Legend (two units)
Yes, it’s a horrendous barrier, and yes, it’s a soft, but Welsh Legend is beautifully placed carrying 52 kilos. Her Rosehill win in March puts her front and centre here and before that she posted one of five seconds on soft going (one win as well). She’s not that bad in the conditions.

Monsieur Sisu is the other end of the scale, probably crying out for more rain. He’s right in it. Mr Dependable will do the Clark/Waterhouse thing I love from in front and Mubariz looks a nice horse. It is interesting that my notes say he’s trained by Chris Waller at Warwick Farm, which is not the usual Rosehill base.

Race 9 – 6 Majestic Shot (one unit)
Majestic Shot steps right down in grade from a fillies stakes race. She’s won four from six and is favoured even more with the apprentice’s weight claim. This horse is very hard to beat. The other horse in the market Exotic Ruby was my next best rater. This horse has been a length or so from saluting at this level in her last two starts and is close to breaking through.

Stay warm and enjoy the big day of racing. Good luck, one and all, and please chip in with your comments throughout the day.

Harness racing selections: Saturday, June 5

Two meetings to look at on Saturday night, with my attention being at Tabcorp Park Menangle and Tabcorp Park Melton. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race Six Number 9 Ignatius
There was a question mark as to how well he was going at one stage, but his recent form suggests he is getting back towards his 3-year-old form, where he was one of the best in Australia.

Has won three of his past four and was dominant three weeks ago when winning a Group 3 here. Needs luck from the wide gate, but class gets him home.

Next-best: Race Eight Number 5 Let’s Go To Brazil
Pretty keen on this guy in the get out. Set a decent task last time out here and he kept finding the line in a really good effort. Drops a bit in grade and depth, Luke McCarthy to steer, has the gate speed to find the lead and from the front, so he’ll take a power of beating.

Value: Race Seven Number 7 Empire Bay
He is in a purple patch at the moment and each way is a bet here at double figures.

An impressive winner here before making up good ground from the back two weeks ago. Has a tricky draw to overcome but if he gets luck in the running, he can figure in the finish.

Tabcorp Park Melton

Best bet: Race Four Number 1 Tango Tara
It’s nearly a case of any price. It all depends on gate speed and if he can hold up from the pole. If he does, it’s race over.

Former New Zealand pacer that has A1 form around him across the ditch, form which will see him spank these if he runs up anything near it. The first 100 metres to 200 metres is crucial but on class, he just bolts up.

Next-best: Race Five Number 3 Always Fast
Emma Stewart-trained five-year-old that has class and really came of age when last in work.

Hopefully, that can eventuate here despite being first up, and perhaps ridden against his pattern from last time in. He was so effective last prep when driven cold and launching late.

But the way this race sets up, he’ll lead and it’ll take a good one to run him down.

Value: Race Eight Number 1 Majestic Courtney
He lacks the class of some of these, but one thing he does have in his corner is gate speed, so will be fascinating to see how he goes.

This is the first full prep he’s had with Andy Gath and we know this stable is genius at improving a tried horse. He’ll hold up early, then potentially opt for cover. His best can see him prove to be a knockout chance.
