Rosehill Guineas Tips and Preview - So You Think progeny ready to fire on Heavy track

  • So You Think can Quinella the race.

Dual Cox Plate winner and upcoming sire So You Think can play a big hand in Saturday’s Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Randwick Guineas (1600m) winner Inference is by So You Think, while Robbie Laing’s talented galloper So Si Bon is the other from the top sire – and I think the pair can fight out the finish.

With the track likely to be a Heavy 9 or 10 on Saturday, the Rosehill Guineas will be more like a 2400m race for these three-year-olds.

Victoria Derby (2500m) winner Prized Icon will be suited by what will feel like a real staying test, as will Inference who was badly held up when finishing 3rd in the Derby, and So Si Bon (4th in the Derby), and NZ Derby (2400m) winner Gingernuts.

However, the fact James Cummings took Prized Icon to Melbourne to avoid a Heavy track in Sydney last start suggests he’s not at his best on severely rain-affected ground.

Inference on the other hand ploughed through the Heavy 10 to score a last to first victory over an unsuitable trip and he’s the one they all have to beat.

While So Si Bon is yet to be tested on Heavy ground, he looked sensational in a barrier trial on Heavy ground leading into this campaign where he was rapidly taking ground off Extreme Choice to finish 2nd.

Trainer Robbie Laing didn’t think So Si Bon was a wet tracker but jockey Damien Oliver got off and said “he really loved that track.”

This is a high-class galloper that is getting fitter with each run and may just be looking for a wet track.

Of the others, the Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained Anaheim was really sprouting wings late to finish two lengths 5th in the Australian Guineas (1600m) and he looks a major player.

Hugh Bowman takes the ride and Anaheim has finished runner-up on a Heavy 10 previously.

I think Inference is a standout in this field but will be backing So Si Bon each-way at $34 and $8.50.
