Autumn Racing Carnival 2009 – Week 9

It’s not a terribly exciting line up of racing events tomorrow. Most of my black bookers were out in force last weekend, so there’s little to grab my interest this weekend.

A sole Group One race, The Rosehill Guineas, over 2000 metres for three year old colts and geldings, is being run tomorrow. It’s the feature race in Sydney and has a good field of smart young lads. Metal Bender is the favourite having won the Randwick Guineas in fine fashion a few weeks ago. His main opposition comes from Caymans who ran third in the aforementioned race, and Rock Kingdom trained by Gai Waterhouse, who also placed in the Randwick Guineas. Also in the picture are Pre Eminence and Torique.

In Melbourne Coubertin who failed to place in Adelaide will be having his first Melbourne city start in the last race on the program. It’s over 2000 metres so he has a chance considering the field is not all that strong in terms of class.

On Sunday it will be interesting to see how Tuesday Joy and Niconero fare in Dubai. They are both running in the Dubai Duty Free. Both are at good odds, so might be worth a small flutter.
