2011 Rosehill Guineas Nominations Released

March 22nd, 2011

The 2011 Rosehill Guineas nominations have been released ahead of the three-year-olds’ showdown set to run at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday March 26.

The $500,000 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) nominations have attracted 20 hopeful horses including a number on their way to a start in the 2011 AJC Australian Derby.

One of the premier staying events on the autumn horse racing calendar, the $1.5 million Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) is scheduled to take place at the Royal Randwick on April 16.

Early favourites in the 2011 Australian Derby odds at Luxbet nominated for the Rosehill Guineas on Saturday include:

Absolutelyawesome ($5) – Michael Moroney’s Zenno Rob Roy gelding coming off a fourth to Ilovethiscity in the Randwick Guineas

Retrieve ($7) – Peter Snowden-trained Rahy colt was seventh in the Randwick Guineas but tipped to improve over 2000m or more

Jimmy Choux ($8) – Crack Kiwi colt coming off four straight in NZ including a smashing 2 length win in the Group 1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) last start

Shamrocker ($12) – Danny O’Brien-trained filly caused an upset with a surprise victory in the Australian Guineas against open company on March 5

Light Brigade ($15) – Gai Waterhouse’s improving Redoute’s Choice colt showed promise with a third in the Randwick Guineas on March 12 at Warwick Farm

The 2011 Rosehill Guineas results are likely to have a large impact on the futures betting markets for the AJC Derby so our tip is to get in on the action now at Luxbet before odds shorten.

Other in-form runners nominated for this year’s Rosehill Guineas include last Friday night’s winner of the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley Domesky and the Peter Snowden-trained Skilled coming off a devastatingly close second in the Randwick Guineas.

Tomorrow, Wednesday March 23, the Rosehill Guineas 2011 final field of acceptors and barriers will be released.
