The Rosehill Wrap: January 27

Race by race recap of key performers and ones to watch moving forward from Saturday’s meeting at Rosehill.

Siege Of Quebec Horseform commenced his autumn campaign with the goal of the Randwick Guineas by taking out the Wilkes 3YO Quality (1100m).

Lanciato took out the feature event, the Listed Carrington Stakes (1400m), however it is the placegetters in Prized Icon Horseform and Endless Drama Horseform who are worth following at their next starts.

The Pinnacle Horseform began her latest prep well over a distance considered short of her best when contesting Race 6.

The So You Think mare showed good promise as a three-year-old, placing in the Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m).

Race 1: Sizzling Belle - 2YO SW+P Plate (1100m)

Sizzling Belle Horseform settled outside the early lead. She hit the front at the 250m and kept Outrageous at bay.

She’s beaten a couple of colts in Outrageous Horseform and Osorno Horseform who held their own in a Breeders Plate back in October.

With that in mind, we’ve awarded her a Timeform rating of 100.

Nick Olive said post race the Black Opal Stakes (1200m) at Canberra on March 11 is her main goal.

A 2YO stepping out on her home track for a $275,000 race while her rivals have to travel, that is a big advantage for the chestnut filly.

Bobbio Horseform and Venom Horseform each produced good debuts, they ran fourth and fifth respectively.

Venom is by So You Think. 1100m always profiled as being too short for her. It’s good she’s got some race experience now. Trainer Clarry Conners should think about putting her away and aiming up at races like the Sires’ and Champagne. Pedigree suggests she’ll appreciate more ground.

Race 2: Siege Of Quebec - Wilkes 3YO Quality (1100m)

Brenton Avdulla had to work hard to keep Siege Of Quebec focused. That mission was accomplished and he’s run to a Timeform rating of 105.

The Randwick Guineas is Siege Of Quebec’s main goal. He’s the second nice colt we’ve seen in the last two week’s who looks well on track for that race.

D’argento first up won at Randwick last week with a Timeform rating of 107p.

These two are neck and neck at the moment. It will be interesting to see which one improves the most.

The runner up Kennedy Horseform is a nice three-year-old. Each of his five runs this prep have been great.

Kennedy probably won’t like this suggestion however Godolphin should consider spelling and gelding then bring him back after the autumn. He can probably work through his grades quite quickly later this season.

Race 3: Show A Star - Benchmark 88 Handicap (1500m)

The money was there to suggest Show A Star Horseform was going to run well. He went straight to the front and was too good. He produced a Timeform rating of 104.

That’s a career peak for him.

In two week’s time there is an Open Handicap at his new home track over the mile. That looks a perfect race.

Prometheus Horseform was strong in second. There is a Benchmark 85 over the Randwick Mile in three weeks which looks a good race for him.

Race 4: The Lion - Highway Handicap (1100m)

That was something of a surprise. The Lion Horseform really turned some heads though. He flew home with a last 600m of 32.84.

We’ve given him a Timeform rating of 80. That’s miles clear of his previous best.

Like every Highway Handicap winner we see of late, he’ll be aimed toward the Country Championships. His qualifying heat is the Hunter and North West Qualifier on March 18 at Scone.

Another Sin Horseform was good. With form behind Kennedy Horseform who had just franked it behind Siege Of Quebec, most were disappointed he couldn’t win this which represented a sharp class drop.

El Mo Horseform caught the eye in third. He was finding the line nicely. That was just his third career start.

Race 5: Bratislava - Benchmark 80 Handicap (1300m)

Everyone is entitled to a bad day. Bratislava Horseform had his at Randwick two weeks ago. He bounced back nicely here.

The Medaglia D’Oro gelding ran to a Timeform rating of 95.

It’s an honest figure and reflects what Bratislava is, an honest bread and butter sprinter.

Merovee Horseform was fair in fifth. Putting the market expectations aside, that was a sound run and he’ll appreciate more ground.

He placed in a Spring Stakes last September. A mile and beyond is where he’ll be at his best.

Race 6: O’Rachael - Fillies and Mares Benchmark 80 Handicap (1350m)

She’s come back in good order this prep. We saw that from the get go when she ran second on resuming.

Saturday she ran to a Timeform rating of 98, her first Australian win.

Her master Timeform rating is 102, she ran that as a two-year-old when she placed in the Diamond Stakes at Ellerslie.

There are a few worth keeping an eye on. The Pinnacle Horseform was excellent in second. She could be in store for a good prep over further.

Moss Trip Horseform, Witches Horseform and No Interest Horseform were all good to the line as well.

Race 7: Lanciato - Carrington Stakes (1400m)

Lanciato Horseform was given an excellent ride from Rachel King. The pair saved ground and weaved a passage in the straight. He’s produced a Timeform rating of 105 to claim his first stakes win.

Mark Newnham is going to nominate Lanciato for the Doncaster. The Per Incanto gelding obviously has to improve some more but he’s very much a horse in form racing with plenty of confidence.

Horses like Prized Icon Horseform in second and Endless Drama Horseform in third, they were giving Lanciato both weight and fitness.

They each look in store for good autumns off those runs.

Prized Icon under 60kg ran to a Timeform rating of 118. That’s up near a career peak for him, only overshadowed by the 120 he returned when winning the 2016 Victoria Derby (2500m).

Race 8: Emperor’s Way - Benchmark 82 Handicap (1800m)

Another strong performance by Emperor’s Way. It’s netted him a Timeform rating of 94p.

He’s a young stayer who can keep progressing through the grades on his current form.

There is a Benchmark 85 over 2000m at Randwick in three weeks he can go to next.

Get On The Grange Horseform is having a fantastic prep for Allan Kehoe. He’s improved with each run. He might go to that same 2000m race at Randwick.

Race 9: Difficult To Get - Benchmark 80 Handicap (1100m)

Difficult To Get Horseform is a mare in form and was rewarded for it. She’s produced a figure of 93 on Saturday.

There is an 1100m Benchmark 80 for her at Canterbury on February 16 which will suit.

Trainers of horses winning Benchmark 80’s need to start looking a bit harder for races now.

With Group racing returning to Sydney commencing this Saturday, those Benchmark races on a Saturday start getting replaced by stakes races.

Autumn is just around the corner!

R7 ROSEHILL 27 January 2018
Carrington Stakes 3U , 1400m
Race Synopsis: The consistent Mark Newnham-trained Lanciato is now the winner of four of his last five starts as he advanced to take out his first stakes race in 19 starts here. He was ridden quietly by Rachel King and settled in second last place in the ten-horse field before improving nicely along the rails at the home turn. He switched deeper and into clear running nearing the 100m and then finished too well under his limit weight (53kg) to win well. Prized Icon began well and raced in third place on the rails. He moved up well on turning for home, challenged at the 200m and then fought gamely under his top weight (60kg) for second in a most promising effort resuming here for new trainer Kris Lees. Endless Drama was fourth early on but eased when caught deep to race in seventh place (wide with cover). He went deep at the home turn, got to a narrow lead at the 100m and then battled strongly for a very good first-up third. The favourite George Patton travelled in fifth place but racing a bit keenly in stages. He briefly looked a chance on straightening but then just battled for (5.7 lengths) seventh.
