The final field and barrier draw for this Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) have been released with 14 three-year-olds accepted into the final field for the staying showdown at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.
An excellent lead-up race to the $1.5 million Group 1 AJC Australian Derby (2400m) at Randwick on April 16, the 2011 Rosehill Guineas is scheduled to run as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:10pm (AEDST) on Saturday.
Top fancies in the 2011 Rosehill Guineas Field Include:
Jimmy Choux (John Bary) – Classy colt from New Zealand has won their past four starts at Group level back home including the Gr. 1 New Zealand Derby (2400m), was impressive at a Warwick Farm barrier trial on Tuesday ahead of their Australian race debut on Saturday, have drawn ideally with barrier six and will be ridden by regular Kiwi hoop Jonathan Riddell
Absolutelyawesome (Michael Moroney) – Early favourite to win the AJC Derby, the 2000m looks ideal for this Zenno Roby Roy gelding coming off a game fourth to Ilovethiscity in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m), also drawn well in barrier seven and to be ridden by Group 1 winning jockey Glen Boss
Shamrocker (Danny O’Brien) – Only filly in the Rosehill Guineas field this year, has a 2kg weight advantage over her rivals and is in red hot form having claimed an upset win in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (2000m) last start, jumping from barrier eight with Damien Oliver booked for the ride
Anacheeva (Peter Moody) – Last year’s Caulfield Guineas winner, yet to impress this season but has come up trumps with the inside running from barrier one on Saturday
Light Brigade (Gai Waterhouse) – Improving Redoute’s Choice colt finished an eye-catching third in the Randwick Guineas last start, yet to show form over this distance but has good barrier five draw and makes a nice Place Bet
Domesky (Michael Kent) – Last start winner of the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley, distance suits but has work to do from wide barrier 12 draw
