2019 Theo Marks Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
The class runner heads the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Theo Marks Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday, Arcadia Queen is well fancied into $1.85.
Another key highlight with star WA mare Arcadia Queen set to step out on debut for the Chris Waller stable. Expect a solid tempo over the 1300m journey.
ARCADIA QUEEN (6) couldn't have been more impressive in her first preparation, making the jump from maiden company to winning the Group 1 Kingston Town Stakes by 4.5L in just six starts. Kicks off over 1300m which is a big tick and she looks to have settled in well to her new surroundings. JMac legs aboard and she should take a power of beating from the favourable draw.
TROPE (11) only went down narrowly first up and is expected to improve sharply racing second up. Racing pattern is low percentage, but he is very talented and should be very strong late. BALLER (12) won well last weekend and has to be kept safe, while ZOUSAIN (2) remains under strong notice in his return.
2019 THEO MARKS STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 6 Arcadia Queen
2nd – 11 Trope
3rd – 12 Baller
4th – 2 Zousain
2019 The Run To The Rose: Tips And Race Preview
Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Run To The Rose, Exceedance looked so good last run and he is now $2.20.
Easily the main highlight of the afternoon with this year's Group 2 Run To The Rose. Only a small field, but expect a solid tempo.
EXCEEDANCE (4) couldn't have been more impressive in his return when making light work of Bivouac. Had the weights (2kg) in his favour there, but did concede a fitness edge and is expected to improve sharply second up. Loaded with talent and should take a power of beating.
BIVOUAC (3) travelled very well, but found little when asked to let down on the heavy track. Much better suited here and a repeat of what he did first up, it should see him right in the finish. DAWN PASSAGE (5) takes on the big boys here and while he may find them a bit slick, he is trending the right way. KUBRICK (6) a big watch fresh with JMac in the saddle.
2019 THE RUN TO THE ROSE – SELECTIONS
1st – 4 Exceedance
2nd – 3 Bivouac
3rd – 5 Dawn Passage
4th – 6 Kubrick
2019 Sheraco Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Taking some value in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Sheraco Stakes, Dyslexic ran well resuming and is a great price around $11.
Easily the toughest race of the afternoon with a host of leading chances in this year's Group 2 Sheraco Stakes. Speed should be solid enough.
DYSLEXIC (11) was the run of the race first up when forced to go back from the wide draw. Reeled off some very slick sectionals and has drawn to settle a lot closer. Races well on her home deck and gets her chance down in the weights. Hard to beat.
CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES (4) has never missed the money fresh and appears well placed back in this grade. Drawn to get a lovely smother and looms as a major threat.
MIZZY (9) won well fresh and while meeting Dyslexic 3.5kg worse off at the weights, she is open to good improvement second up and has to be respected. FASIKA (14) is unbeaten from three starts and clearly a mare with plenty of talent, keep very safe.
2019 SHERACO STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 11 Dyslexic
2nd – 4 Champagne Cuddles
3rd – 9 Mizzy
4th – 14 Fasika
