Selections, best bets and blackbookers for Rosehill and Flemington on August 12

ROSEHILL August 12

RACE 5: (4) Peacock

RACE 6: (3) Trekking (EW)

RACE 7: (7) Washington Heights

RACE 8: (6) Faith’s Encore (EW)

RACE 9: (8) Imanui

RACE 6 (3) TREKKING Horseform: Showed his class last season when he followed a big debut win over this course and distance with a luckless second in Canberra’s Black Opal before the heavy track ended his chances in the Golden Slipper. Super trial win in preparation for this and from his draw expecting him to sit on the back of a line of leaders and have the last run at them. Certain to win good races.

RACE 7 (7) WASHINGTON HEIGHTS Horseform: Ran up to expectations at his first start since returning from his time in Hong Kong when he powered home over the top of his rivals for a soft 1200m win at this course on July 15. No doubt he can make further improvement with the break of a month and a strong trial in between a perfect prep for this event. First go at 1400m but should eat it up on his home track.

RACE 8 (6) FAITH'S ENCORE Horseform: Talented mare has made an excellent return from a bleeding ban with two strong efforts over shorter trips and is ready to peak with the step up to 1400m. Nothing went right last time when third behind Suspender over 1200m at this course and with 4kg less this time she has the weights, barrier and extra distance in her favour.
