Small fields throw up a number of short priced favourites at Rosehill on Saturday however believe it shouldn’t be a case for all of them.
Unforgotten (Race 2), Bon Amis (R4), I Am Serious (R5), Stonebrook (R7) and Zonk (R8) could all potentially go around at even money or shorter at Rosehill on Saturday.
Of these handful, some look harder to beat than others in particular Unforgotten contesting the Schweppes Benchmark 72 3YO Handicap (1500m).
The daughter of Fastnet Rock has impressed in each of her two starts, the latest when winning over 1300m at this course seven days ago.
Her current campaign follows a maiden prep during the winter where she performed well behind some nice types in the form of Assimilate on debut and then a second to subsequent dual Group 1 winner Ace High Horseform.
Chris Waller has a knack of allowing his three-year-olds to work through their grades during off season racing, a recent case in point was Zumbelina who recorded four straight wins in similar races this time 12 months ago.
Unforgotten is flying and rising to 1500m third run from a spell shapes as being ideal.
Genuine value is hard to find through single digit field sizes however Your Way is worth consideration contesting the Fillies and Mares 2018 ATC Membership Now Open Sprint (1200m).
With seven victories from ten starts, Your Way is a winner, as simple as that.
Thewayyouare mare has won two of her three prior first up outings and boasts six wins and a placing from seven starts over this distance.
Your Way has been readied for this with a pair of trials where she has found the line well under minimal urgings on both occasions.
Currently quoted at $10, don’t be surprised to see some late money for her in a race where the talented Zonk is currently all the rage at $2.25.
The Bjorn Baker stable is flying this season, currently enjoying a strike rate of 25%
Jockey Jason Collett is more than holding up his end of the bargain, riding at 27% for Baker so far in season 2017/18.
Best Of The Day: R2; #2 Unforgotten @ $1.80
Each Way Play: R8; #2 Your Way @ $10.00
