Early Mail and Blackbook Report for Golden Slipper Day

Early mail, tips selections for Golden Slipper day at Rosehill on March 24.

ROSEHILL SATURDAY

SEABROOK: Confident this quality filly will be a big player in the Golden Slipper given the merit of her two lead-up performances at Caulfield and Randwick. She was a certainty beaten behind Enbihaar and Oohood in a Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) before overcoming a horror run four and five wide to beat Fiesta in the Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Randwick three weeks ago when the soft ground presented no issues, running faster time than the colts in the Skyline Stakes. Strong finisher looks made for a hard run Golden Slipper in testing conditions.


RACE 8 (13): VIRIDINE: High class 3YO will give his older rivals a lot to worry about after his excellent first-up fourth behind Redzel in the Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Randwick when he did his best work late. He was carrying 56kg under the wfa conditions and will meet his rivals from that race up to 4kg better with the big drop in weight to 50kg under the favourable handicap conditions. Unbeaten in two starts at this course and a winner of his only start on affected ground adds to his claims.

RACE 9 (10) MISS QUE: Lightly-raced mare has been has been in excellent form with a soft first-up win followed by two luckless placings at Canterbury and Randwick when wide runs cost her victory both times. She was beaten a nose by Sugar Bella last time over 1200m at Randwick when her rider weighed in overweight, adding to the merit of that performance. Meets Sugar Bella 2kg better and this time her wide draw may work in her favour late in the day if the affected tracks plays as expected as she has already shown a liking for soft ground.
