Brookspire (Rosehill Race 9 No. 4)
This four-year-old Hinchinbrook mare trained by Chris Waller has three wins and two places from eight starts. When resuming after 16 weeks she found the front at the 300m and raced away for a 3.5 length win over 1400m at Kensington on heavy going on 25 August, then was wide with no cover in the middle stages before finishing 1.8 lengths 5th over 1500m at the Rosehill at Kembla Grange meeting on 11 September. Back from a let-up and a proven performer on rain-affected going. Rates highly.
Brutality (Rosehill Race 8 No. 13):
This five-year-old Shamus Award gelding trained by Joe Pride has five wins and seven places from 21 starts. When resuming from a 17 week spell he kept chasing from well back for 5.8 lengths 11th over 1200m at Randwick on 23 October, then chased hard from well back in the field for 5 lengths 3rd over 1300m at Newcastle on 13 November with the best last 800m race sectional. Has won two from three at Rosehill and has several wins in the wet. Looks a good each-way chance here.
Francesco Guardi (Rosehill Race 10 No. 9):
This four-year-old Frankel gelding trained by Chris Waller is the early favourite in this BM 78 Handicap over 1500m. His first five starts were in Britain where he won his first start over 1402m. He kept chasing once clear for 1.3 lengths 4th over 1400m at Rosehill on 6 November, then kept chasing but was no match for the winner late when 0.4 length 2nd over 1500m at Rosehill on 17 November. Without knowing how he will handle the heavy track I am prepared to risk him here.

Best Bets Our Balaklava Racing Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Spectacle (Balaklava Race 5 No. 4) This four-year-old Teofilo mare trained by Tony & Calvin McEvoy has a win and three places from nine starts. She fought hard to the 50m when her run ended and she finished 2.2 lengths 4th over 1400m at Ballarat on 21 October, then chased steadily out wide for 3.4 lengths 8th over 1700m at Flemington on 4 November.

Best Bets Our Doomben Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Go Wandji (Doomben Race 2 No. 2) This four-year-old Wandjina gelding trained by Tom Dougall has five wins and two places from seven starts.

Looking for a hat-trick here and it's hard to see anything beating him.
