Rosehill R3 Important Note - This is a very big value betting race where we can back 3 horses to win for a result across the race. Outlay 2 times as much on Shahad as you do on Villa Splendido & Angel Bee.

Rosehill R3 #10 Shahad - very well bred lightly raced improver by Fastnet Rock out of the high class Secret Savings mare Shamekha who was a 3 time G1 winner including the Coolmore Classic, All Aged Stakes & TJ Smith, also placed in 3 other G1 contests and was 4th in the Golden Slipper, this one comes in here 2nd up from a spell on the back of an easy kill in midweek company but prior to that knocked off Order Of The Sun in a strong trial after finishing 0.5l 2nd to Magic Millions winner Real Surreal in another trial, looked the real deal at 1st prep on 2nd career start when a nose bobbing 2nd to Scandiva in the Magic Night Stakes G2 as a 2yo, then returned from a spell running 4th to Bound For Earth in the G2 Furious followed by 4th to Guelph in the G2 Tea Rose, high class and capable of hitting a new career peak here in so well weighted with only 54kg, dam handled the wet no problems and she herself has finished 2nd and 3rd in 2 trials on heavy going 1l behind Sweet Idea and 1.6l behind Thump, ticks all the right boxes to make it 2 on end here.

Rosehill R3 #11 Villa Splendido - has been put up a 40/1 chance in this field but has always shown signs of being well above average, comes into this 1st up from a spell on the back of winning a trial at Hawkesbury over Twilight Royale by 0.6l with a big 7l margin back to 3rd in slow going, Twilight Royale accounted for Shamus Award in the G2 VRC Sires in March 2013 and was a very good 4th to Thump in the Silver Shadow G2 back in August, the form line also through the 3rd horse home in that trial Misstrum reads very strong as she was only beaten 4.3l in the NZ 1000 Guineas amongst other good performances at Group level in New Zealand, Villa Splendido herself is by Holy Roman Emperor out of the good producing Zabeel mare November Song who has produced November Flight by Flying Spur who annexed the G3 Millie Fox in her 7 win career over 1000-1400m making this one a 3/4 sister to November Flight, at her 2nd career start Villa Spledido ran a close 2nd to Diamond Earth in a $141K race at Scone, she gets in well weighted here with 54kg and may just run a huge race at 40/1, has to be backed each way.

Rosehill R3 #9 Angel Bee - another one that gets under the odds makers radar, she is a winner 4 from 13 in her short career including a 1st up easy kill at Canterbury over Oh George & Holy Delusions 2 back before being tried in the G3 Wenona Girl last time out when had genuine excuses and was only beaten 3.6l, she has won on both slow and heavy and drops 1kg on that last start and 4.5kg on her 1st up win, shes bred to handle the going by Pins out of a Zabeel mare, represents the astute Hawkes yard and also warrants a win bet ticket at the big odds of 16/1 as one of 3 runners to back in this race for a potential big result.

Moonee Valley R2 #3 Octavia - clear leaning towards the well bred Octavia here who comes into this resuming from a spell after its form tappered off towards the end of last prep when tried vs stronger, only needs to reproduce the form it showed 5 starts ago at Caulfield when annexing the G3 Cockram over 1200m at Caulfield defeating A Time For Julia to be winning here, lumped 56kg that day and drops to 54.5kg after the 3kg claim for Jordan Childs here, not a lot of speed engaged here considering it is a 1000m scamper so this one should be able to cross from the wide gate and either lead or sit outside the leader without having to work too hard early, ticks enough boxes as the clear cut top elect to warrant backing at the 6.50 fixed odds that will be offered after the scratching of Shamal Wind (currently 8.50 with Shamal Wind still listed in the market)

Moonee Valley R4 #7 Selectify - enough value in the market to back our top 2 elects for a very good result no matter which one salutes, slight leaning toward Selectify on top who is very well bred by Redoute's Choice out of the Galileo mare Personify making it a full brother to the decent stakes performer Laser Flash, Personify herself is a half sister to Laisserfaire, Time Thief & Foreplay, comes into this 2nd up from a spell having mere 5th career start on the back of failing at Sandown vs weaker last time out but still rises in class despite that factor, gets blinkers 1st timr and winkers come off first time, looked well above average at 2nd career start 2nd 0.7l 3rd to Thermal Current in the G3 Red Anchor with 2nd home the very smart Notlisten'intome, drops 1kg on that run, ticks a fair few boxes and has the right form to be winning here, suprising big odds available at 15.00 in early fixed odds markets.

Moonee Valley R4 #9 Ilgattino - good speed pedigree by Keep The Faith out of a Catbird mare, if it can reproduce the 2nd it ran 2 starts ago to The Quarterback for a $100k purse at Sale it is right in this race especially considering it drops from 59.5kg that day down to 54.5kg here, currently listed at 21.00 in early fixed odds markets, must be backed with a mild degree of confidence in support of the major hope Selectify at those luxurious odds.
