We have near equal favourites with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the first route towards the Golden Rose, the Rosebud (1100m), to be run and won this Saturday at Rosehill.
Menari and Siege Of Quebec are the two at the top of the betting as it stands. They both opened $2.70 and the bookies thought that the punters should decide. Well they haven’t really, because both have been easy, with Menari out to $3.00 while Siege Of Quebec is twenty cents shorter.
Trekking is the other key hope. He failed to flatter in the Slipper but clearly, like most, he struggled on the bog. Back on top of the ground here and has trialled brilliantly. He is the $5.50 third pick.
Diamond Tathagata trialled very well alongside Comin’ Through and beat Winx in a trial. He is at $11 while Lightz, the rank outsider, has been the lone firmer, into $41 from $51.
