The Rosehill Wrap - March 17

The Rosehill Wrap featuring a race by race recap of key performers from Coolmore Classic Day on March 17.

Daysee Doom confirmed herself as the dominant mare in Sydney (outside of Winx of course!) by taking out the Group 1 Coolmore Classic.

Comin’ Through booked a spot as a genuine lightweight hope in next month’s Doncaster Mile while Mick Price looks set to have key chances in both the Rosehill Guineas and Vinery Stud Stakes having filled the minor placings of the Phar Lap Stakes.

Race 1: Multifacets - Benchmark 82 Handicap (1900m)

A couple of winning droughts were broken on Saturday, Multifacets Horseform was the first to do it.

There was nothing overly special about the win. He was the fit middle distance horse down in the weights. Ran to a Timeform rating of 94.

All Too Soon Horseform is clearly the horse to follow out of the race. She was jumping noticeably in grade and measured up.

She was finding the line well. David Payne can get her back to a more conventional Oaks path from here. Two weeks from here she can run in the Vinery Stud Stakes and then to the Oaks.

Race 2: Auvray - Group 3 Sky High Stakes (2000m)

It was a case of third time lucky for Auvray Horseform this prep. Richard Freedman put him in the right race and Glyn Schofield gave him the right ride. On Saturday he ran to a Timeform rating of 114.

He’s off to the Tancred Stakes in two weeks time. Hartnell Horseform was the last horse to claim the Sky High - Tancred Stakes double in 2015.

Auvray probably has to improve a bit for a Tancred but Richard looks set to have him peaking for it fourth run from a spell.

Libran Horseform, Mackintosh Horseform and Salsamor Horseform. Each of them were finishing well behind him. All are working toward their main autumn goals well.

Race 3: Sunlight - Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m)

Sunlight Horseform was challenged out in front early but was still too good. Ran to a Timeform rating of 112. Her master rating is 116+ achieved in the Skyline.

She’s the favourite but there are a couple of factors that suggest she’s under the odds.

Firstly, she ran more than half a second slower than the boys in the Pago Pago.

It’s also worth noting the last filly to claim the Magic Night - Golden Slipper double was Bint Marscay all the way back in 1993. Five have done it.

Sunlight is a $3.50 favourite and Written By is the $5.00 second elect. There is a lot to suggest those two should probably be flipped in betting.

Cristobal Horseform and Sweet Ava Horseform were good filling the minors. Neither of them have made the Golden Slipper field however the $600,000 Group 2 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) on April 14 shapes as an excellent consolation prize.

Race 4: Written By - Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m)

That was impressive from Written By Horseform. He and Sandbar Horseform put a big space back to Spin in third who looks to have a bit of talent himself.

Written By has run to a Timeform rating of 118. That’s two pounds shy of his Blue Diamond Stakes win.

He is the highest rated two-year-old of the crop so far off that Blue Diamond Stakes win.

Written By
Written By Picture:Steve Hart

He’ll go into the Golden Slipper looking to become the first horse since Stratum in 2005 to claim the Pago Pago/Golden Slipper double. Three have done it.

Sandbar in second. He was brave. He’s scraped into the Golden Slipper and deserves his place in the field following that effort on Saturday.

Race 5: Dothraki - Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m)

Dothraki Horseform is a bit of a non winner and that was reflected in his starting price. $12. He’s run to a Timeform rating of 115 though which is the highest winning figure of this race since Title in 2012.

A horse like Dothraki, you need to place him right and he’ll reward you. Saturday was a case in point.

Sprightly Lass Horseform lost on protest but got some black type and ran a career peak.

Dothraki

Isorich Horseform was his usual honest self. Secret Trail Horseform good first up as well.

Race 6: Unforgotten - Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m)

Unforgotten Horseform got her prep back on track and run to a Timeform rating of 109.

Chris Waller has won three of the last four Phar Lap Stakes now. He got it last year with Foxplay Horseform and in 2015 with Winx Horseform.

She’ll follow the same path Winx did that autumn, the Vinery Stud and the Australian Oaks.

Unforgotten

Winx became invincible after those two runs so it’s likely Unforgotten’s last chance to outperform her champion stablemate.

Holy Snow Horseform very good third up with Blinkers on for the first time.

Mick Price won the Rosehill Guineas two years ago with Tarzino Horseform. He looks a live chance there in two weeks. His stablemate Hiyaam Horseform right on track for the Vinery Stud and Oaks as well. That was a big run first up over 1500m.

$41 about Hiyaam for the Australian Oaks with Ladbrokes Odds Boost is generous with all other bookmakers only offering around $12.

Race 7: Daysee Doom - Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m)

Daysee Doom Horseform was brilliant. Settled outside the lead and was too strong late despite giving most of her rivals weight.

She’s run to a Timeform rating of 116. That’s the highest winning figure we’ve seen in a Coolmore Classic since Steps In Time Horseform won in 2014.

Ron Quinton has an abundance of options with her this next month. The most conventional path would be the Emancipation Stakes (1500m) in two week’s time and then the Legacy Stakes (1600m) two weeks after that.

Outside of Winx, Daysee Doom is the dominant mare in Sydney and will be hard to beat in those races.

She’ll be up against the same mares who she beat on Saturday, but on better weight terms.

The five-year-old will be switching back from handicaps to Set Weights plus Penalties and Weight For Age events. Her rivals look set to be vying for the placings.

Race 8: Comin’ Through - Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m)

Comin’ Through has run to a Timeform rating of 116. He’ll go straight to the Doncaster from here. With just 51.5kg he’s in that race up to his ears.

Only 12 months ago It’s Somewhat claimed the Ajax Stakes/Doncaster double so this race has become a more credible form line heading to the Doncaster.

I’ve got a bit of time for Comin’ Through this prep because the decision was made to geld him over the summer. He’s always shown promise and he’s a half brother to four time Group 1 winner Criterion Horseform.

Comin' Through

He looks timed to the minute to showcase his potential as a racehorse in a $3million event.

Tom Melbourne Horseform is on track for the Doncaster as well. As well as being a notorious bridesmaid, lack of race fitness was always going to hit him in the face late first up over 1500m on Saturday.

He’ll be better for the run.

Race 9: Peacock - Benchmark 89 Handicap (1350m)

Peacock Horseform. He’s the sort of horse who’s promised the world and hasn’t really delivered. A lot who back the gelding likely call him by only half his name after most of his runs.

Leading throughout he ran to a Timeform figure of 100 on Saturday, suggesting the Lonhro four-year-old may be ready to deliver on some of his promise.

It’s the best figure Peacock has produced in 12 months. It’s still below his best as well. The Godolphin sprinter won the Gothic Stakes as a three-year-old with a Timeform rating of 103.

There is a 1400m Benchmark 90 for him at Rosehill in a fortnight. He could take some running down.

Tribal Wisdom Horseform very good in second as well. The quinella in the last look like a pair of four-year-olds who each have some upside.

R7 ROSEHILL 17 March 2018
Coolmore Classic 3UFM , 1500m
Race Synopsis: Highly consistent Ron Quinton-trained mare Daysee Doom, a good fourth in this race last year, scored this time with yet another game performance, taking her record to nine wins (with five placings) from 19 starts. She was smartly away from her wide barrier (14) and eventually crossed to settle outside the leader (Flippant). She put pressure on that runner rounding the home turn, got to the front at the 200m and then dug deep when challenged to score narrowly, but impressively. Oregon's Day travelled nicely in fifth place, one off the rails, responded to riding on straightening to challenge at the 100m and fought well under her limit weight (51kg) for a close second. Silent Sedition raced in ninth, improved (deep) nearing the 600m, commenced a good run from the 300m and kept finishing well for a close-up third, her second placing in successive years in this race. Eckstein raced in tenth place, went deep from the 300m and ran on well for (0.6 lengths) fourth. Prompt Response began well, raced in fifth place (without cover) moved up coming to the home turn and battled on well for a close-up fifth while the winner's stablemate Dixie Blossoms ran on very well from 11th at the home turn for sixth, beaten less than a length in a packed finish.
