Several outstanding racehorses have been confirmed to appear at the Rosehill Gardens races on Saturday afternoon, but he have analysed every runner in each event to help you find a winner.

The action is set to get underway at 11:25am and will conclude after the TAB.com.au Handicap (1350m) is contested at 4:25pm.

Race 1 (11:25am) TAB Handicap (1350m)

Racing at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday gets underway with a two-year-old race, contested over 1350m. Hualalai (barrier 7) returned to the races for a smart win and will relish a step up to 1350m, and is sure to receive a good ride from Tommy Berry. Bull Market (barrier 8) also carries winning form into this race and has the notable advantage of in-form hoop Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle. Godolphin will launch a two-pronged attack in the form of consistent galloper Gaulois (barrier 1) and debutante Guipure (barrier 5), who should both find good positions in transit from good draws. The Paul Perry-trained Condor (barrier 4) is the only other horse set to debut in the race.

Tip: No. 2 Gaulois ($2.70)

Race 2 (12:00pm) Australian Turf Club Handicap (1400m)

A small but classy field is set to contest Race 2 at Rosehill on Saturday, including High Mist (barrier 6). The High Chaparral gelding has performed well through two starts this time and looks set to peak in this race, while he is also sure to receive an excellent ride from Hugh Bowman. Faraway Town (barrier 5) ran on well to finish fourth in a Rosehill race over 1200m first-up a fortnight ago, will carry benefit into this race and will enjoy a step up in distance. Jason Coyle’s stable has been flying of late and the Warwick Farm horses is well represented in this race, in the form of Insensate (barrier 4). Arbeitsam (barrier 9) is another horse who will take plenty of benefit into this race and should find a good position behind the early speed from a wide draw.

Tip: No. 2 Faraway Town – Each Way ($6/$2.15)

Race 3 (12:35pm) TAB Highway Handicap (1500m)

Matt Dunn has an excellent record in Highway Handicap races and the Murwillumbah trainer is offered an excellent opportunity to chalk up another win at Rosehill on Saturday with Zamex (barrier 13). The Cheval De Troy gelding flew home to win a Highway Handicap over 1400m by close to two lengths a fortnight ago and is without doubt the horse to beat again this weekend. Murrmaid (barrier 3) has drawn ideally into this field and will carry only 53kgs, while Mister Marmalade (barrier 9) is sure to carry plenty of benefit into the race second-up. The Frick (barrier 2) is seeking a third-consecutive race win following triumphs at Dubbo at his two most-recent starts.

Tip: No. 2 Zamex ($2.50)

Race 4 (1:10pm) Pro Rate ATC Membership On Sale Sprint (1200m)

Ten fillies and mares will take to the barriers for Race 4 on Saturday, including Upscale (barrier 10). The Exceed And Excel mare ran on for fourth in the Cancer Foundation Handicap (1100m) at Randwick first-up in May and will only improve upon stepping up to 1200m this weekend. Allez Chival (barrier 12) will need luck from a wide draw, but is weighted well and ran a good third at Canterbury last week. Godolphin filly Nonpareil (barrier 7) is weighted to win, drawn ideally and carries terrific form into the race. Trainer Darren Beadman also included the filly in nominations for another race at Rosehill on Saturday, but has elected to saddle her in Race 4; perhaps a key indicator of her chances here. Test The World (barrier 8) and Validate (barrier 3) are both live chances at the distance and company.

Tip: No. 10 Nonpareil – Each Way ($9/$2.90)

Race 5 (1:45pm) TAB Rewards Handicap (1500m)

It is a strong and open field of fourteen runners confirmed for Race 5 and a case can be made for more than half of the group. Kellyville Flyer (barrier 10) has gone amiss at her two most-recent starts, but the classy mare will enjoy a step back in class into this race. Moss ‘N’ Dale (barrier 6) has drawn ideally and has returned to racing in excellent form this time, while Louie Sea Kay (barrier 14) and Magical Stance (barrier 11) both carry winning form into the race, albeit in softer company. Count Of Limonade (barrier 8) will contest the race first-up, but his class is sure to count for plenty and he should prove tough to beat with only 57kgs in tow.

Tip: No. 2 Moss ‘N’ Dale ($3.10)

Race 6 (2:25pm) Kensei Handicap (2000m)

Arguably the field of the day will step out in Race 6 and a case can be made for all twelve horses confirmed as starters. Destiny’s Kiss (barrier 5) will take plenty of benefit from his first-up run and will relish a return to 2000m, while tough veteran Mighty Lucky (barrier 2) could receive the run of the race from barrier 2, but will have to overcome a heavy weight. Singing (barrier 6) has not been at his best this season, but is undoubtedly faced with his best opportunity to date in the Kensei Handicap, while Tucanchoo (barrier 7), Foreign Prince (barrier 1) and Supply And Demand (barrier 3) have all won at this class previously. Godolphin entrant Alegria (barrier 8) will take plenty of benefit into the race and should prove tough to beat in the final stages of the race with only 53.5kgs in tow.

Tip: No. 7 Alegria – Each Way ($8.50/$2.85)

Race 7 (3:05pm) Schweppes Handicap (1100m)

It could be an excellent day for the Godolphin stable at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday and Darren Beadman will saddle the classy Badajoz (barrier 9) in Race 7. Badajoz returned to the races for a close second at Randwick on May 27th and is sure to take plenty of benefit into this race, amongst arguably weaker company. Pioneering (barrier 4) may need the run to find peak condition, but will be partnered by Hugh Bowman from an ideal draw. Sir Plush (barrier 8) and Last Witness (barrier 2) may also both need the run, while Fickle Folly represents terrific value in betting markets, as an each-way chance. Magic Alibi (barrier 13) was terrific at the conclusion of his last campaign and has trialled well leading into the Schweppes Handicap. Topweight Princefamous (barrier 3) could receive the run of the race from his inside draw.

Tip: No. 3 Badajoz ($5)

Race 8 (3:45pm) #TheRaces Handicap (1800m)

There is plenty of value to be taken in Race 8 from a betting perspective and close to the entire field is at the very least an outside chance of winning. Oakfield Midnight (barrier 12) is seeking a third-consecutive race win, but faces a steep step up in class here, as does Avroson (barrier 8), who was a smart winner at Dubbo last time out. Speed Hero (barrier 14) went amiss last time out, but has posted winning form this time and is drawn to find a good position off the pace. Collateral (barrier 15) will have some work to do early, but he is in terrific form and is more than a winning chance, while Multifacets (barrier 13) and Noumea (barrier 11) both have the class to win this race on their day.

Tip: No. 12 Collateral – Each Way ($6.50/$2.70)

Race 9 (4:25pm) TAB.com.au Handicap (1350m)

The final race at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday has drawn a classy field of sprinters, including the consistent Wild ‘N’ Famous (barrier 19). The horse would have been extremely tough to beat had he drawn favourably, but will require luck in transit from a horror draw. Invincible Knight (barrier 16) returned to the races for a credible fourth at Rosehill a fortnight ago and is a live chance of winning here, while Pick Me Up (barrier 15) carries almost identical form. Lay Down The Law (barrier 17) faces a big step up in class, but has found outstanding condition this time in, while Snappy One (barrier 8) should be able to tuck into the field from barrier 8, is weighted well and will be partnered by Deanne Panya, who is an excellent judge of speed.

Tip: No. 2 Invincible Knight – Each Way ($7/$2.95)
