Chris Nelson’s Rosehill Best Bets

RACE 1 No.2 Vinnie’s Spirit

Waterhouse/Bott 2yo who will make full use of his rails draw on Saturday likely going straight to the front. Broke his maiden status in fine style at Newcastle last start charging clear of his opposition after being challenged early in the straight. Yes, this is a tougher task however he’s proven in the going and will be up front against the rail, that’s been a recipe for success around here of late.

RACE 9 No.13 Frumos

Probably the most interesting runner at this meeting. She’s a 4yo mare from the Chris Waller yard who’s had the two starts both at Newcastle for as many wins with both being in dominant fashion. On each occasion she’s sat back before unleashing a big finish to run past her rivals and then race away. She’s yet to be overly pressured having won both times with plenty left in the tank.

RACE 10 No.1 Snowzone

With the cool weather I can’t see this track improving too much away from a heavy rating and that’s going to suit this wet track loving galloper who backs up from a tidy second at Randwick last Saturday. After the Tyler Schiller claim he’ll carry only 0.5kg more in weight and as far as back-ups go he’s only done it once for a strong performance.
