ROSEHILL GARDENS

Race 1:                  Favourite punters were left lamenting after the big plunge on Press Box went astray
                                The unplaced favourite was backed from $2.30 into $1.80 on raceday

                                Ronstar eased ($5.50-$8) with River Bird ($10-$14) and Canyonero ($5.50-$7) minor placegetters

Race 2:                  In a bunched finish, Lisdoonvarna ($6-$6.50-$5.50 on raceday) held off the challengers
                                Runner-up Seaway – who eased as favourite from $3.20 to $3.50 – flashed home in vain
                                Gaulois finished third and was solid around the $5.50-$6 mark on raceday (closed $5.50)

Race 3:                  Epidemic enjoyed the early speed battle and was able to overpower her rivals
                                Epidemic held just over 50 percent of money placed and closed $2.80 favourite
                                Runner-up Charlayne drifted on raceday from $3.60 to $4.60
                                The third placegetter was Easy Eddie (as short as $5.50 to $6.50)
                                Curdled – who was unplaced – firmed late from $5.50 to $4.60

Race 4:                  Coup De Main dampened the spirits of favourite punters after Dia De Reyes saluted
                                Coup De Main was backed from $3.20 on Wednesday into $2.40 (was as short as $2.10)
                                Dia De Reyes hovered around the $8.50-$9 mark for the majority of raceday betting (closed $9)

                                The unplaced Marco Man was supported on raceday from $8 to $6

Race 5:                  Favourite punters left the money in the bag with the well backed Roman Son failing to place
                                Roman Son opened $2.10 on Wednesday, touched $1.70 on raceday and closed $1.75
                                Three-quarters of the money placed was for Roman Son including a $15,000 wager at $1.70
                                The Getaway was friendless in betting ($26 out to $41 on raceday)
                                Runner-up Naval Warfare ($21-$15) and the third place Araaja ($14-$10) were specked

Race 6:                  Manolo Blahniq was heavily backed late, but Albumin defied the drift to salute
                                Albumin was a $2.60 favourite on race morning before easing to a $4 second elect

Race 7:                  In a deceptive finish, King Darci deflated the supporters of the well backed Special Missile
                                King Darci was unwanted in raceday betting easing from $13 to $16
                                Runner-up Special Missile was supported from $3.40 into $3 including an $8,000 bet at $3
                                Up ‘n’ Rolling – who finished third – shortened from $3.80 into $2.70 on raceday
