April Rain (Rosehill Race 8 No. 3)
This five-year-old Pierro mare trained by Chris Waller has three wins and two places from her six starts. She settled towards the rear of the field and chased hard for 0.3 lengths 2nd over 1200m at Gosford on 8 May, then was looking for a run straightening before chasing hard for 1.2 lengths 5th over 1300m at Randwick on 29 May. Resumes here from an 18 week spell and placed in a recent trial. Goes well first-up and should be hard to beat.
Narrated (Rosehill Race 5 No. 7):
This four-year-old Snitzel mare trained by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace has two wins and five places from her eight starts. She led throughout for a 2.2 length win over 1850m at Mudgee on 29 August, then led most of the way before being run down late to finish 0.9 length 3rd over 1800m at Kensington on 15 September. Handles rain-affected going and looks a great each-way chance.
Pippali (Rosehill Race 4 No. 3):
This four-year-old Ilovethiscity mare trained by Jason Coyle is the early favourite in this Fillies and Mares BM 72 Handicap over 1500m. She over-raced in the early stages before chasing hard for 0.6 length 3rd over 2300m at Gosford on 8 September, then was always well back when 3.5 lengths 9th in the Group 2 Golden Pendant over 1400m at Rosehill on 25 September. Drops back in grade but doesn’t offer value.
