ROSEHILL GARDENS

Race 1                   Remarque justified the boom by easily winning the opener despite wandering in the straight.
                                Remarque received 75 percent of backing from TAB customers after opening $2 on Wednesday.
                                Remarque was as short as $1.35 on raceday before closing $1.45 favourite.
                                One TAB punter placed $20,000 at $1.04 on Remarque to finish in the placings.
                                A win bet of $8000 at $1.45 was wagered on Remarque minutes before post time.
                                Zethus ($12 to $10) and Sing A Love Song ($13) were the minor placegetters.

Race 2                   Favourite backers were rewarded with the strong raceday support for Tailleur.
                                Tailleur tightened from $2.90 to $2.50 favourite on raceday (was as short as $2.40).
                                There was a late wager of $3770 at $2.40 on Tailleur.
                                Morning favourite The Bopper drifted from $2 to $2.80 and finished fourth.
                                Lashes ($6.50 to $5.50) and Academy $15) finished second and third respectively.

Race 3                   In a close finish, Banger was able to outlast Proven Class in the final 100 metres.
                                Banger was supported at a price on raceday from $14 to $10.
                                Proven Class hovered around the $9-$9.50 mark on raceday (closed $9.50).
                                Unplaced favourite Mother’s Mercy was $4.60 to $3.90 before easing late to $4.20.
                                Second elect King’s Trust – also unplaced – firmed from $9.50 to $7 (was as short as $6.50).
                                Rich And Shameless ($10) was the third placegetter.

Race 4                   In the shadows of the post, Harpo Marx nabbed the dashing leader Vadiyann.
                                Harpo Marx was $3.70 to $3.50 on raceday before easing late to $3.70 favourite.
                                Vadiyann drifted from $5 to $6 and the daring tactics from Sam Clipperton almost worked.
                                Fourth placegetter Criminal Code ($3.80) duelled with Harpo Marx for favouritism.
                                First Courrier – specked from $26 to $17 on raceday – finished third.

Race 5                   Favourite punters rejoiced as Count De Rupee overpowered Liberty Sun in the dying stages.
                                Count De Rupee firmed on raceday from $3.60 to as short as $3.30 before closing $3.40.
                                Liberty Sun ($14 to $21) would have provided a blowout result if victorious.
                                He’s A Hotshot eased as the second elect from $5.50 to $6.50 and was unplaced.
                                Cognac – also unplaced – opened $15 on Wednesday and touched $5.50 on raceday (closed $7).
                                Charretera ($12) was the third placegetter.


Race 6                   Above And Beyond defied an alarming betting drift to account for his rivals.
                                Above And Beyond was $3.90 on raceday morning and eventually closed $6.
                                The plunge was for the runner-up Canasta ($12 to $5.50 on raceday).

                                One bet of $4900 at $4.80 was placed late in betting on Trajection.
                                Another wager of $9800 at $1.90 on Orcein to run a place did not prove fruitful.

Race 7                   One TAB punter collected $48,000 after Tycoonist won his second race from eight starts.
                                The TAB customer in question placed $4000 at $12 on the drifting Tycoonist.
                                Tycoonist ($6.50 to $12) was unwanted by the majority of punters on raceday.
                                Unplaced favourite Shaik received almost 50 percent of raceday backing from TAB customers.
                                Shaik was heavily supported from $3.70 to $2.30 but finished fourth.
                                Runner-up Blaze A Trail tightened from $9 to $5.50 before closing $6.50.
                                Terrace House ($4.20 to $5.50 on raceday) did not figure in the placings.
                                Sahra ($9 to $11) finished third.


Race 8                   In a tough race to assess, Lillemor was able to hold off Exotic Ruby in a close finish.
                                Before the late scratching of Hibiscus Lady, Lillemor eased from as short as $6.50 to $8.
                                Lillemor eventually closed a $6.50 chance on the fourth line of betting.
                                Unplaced favourite Never Talk ($3.70) drifted from $4.20 to $4.80 before the late scratching.
                                Sally’s Day ($4.20) had tightened from $5 to $4.60 before the withdrawal of Hibiscus Lady.
                                Exotic Ruby ($19) and Madam Legend ($4.60) were the minor placegetters.

Race 9                   Private Eye won his fifth-straight race with a devastating sprint in the last 300 metres.
                                Private Eye did ease as raceday favourite though from $2.50 to $2.80.
                                Second elect Smart Image also drifted from $3.50 to $4.60 and did not place.
                                Runner-up Starla was fancied on raceday from $11 to as short as $6.50 before closing $7.
                                The unplaced Super Contender firmed on raceday from $11 to $8.50.
                                Third placegetter Cuban Royale ($34 to $81) was the extreme outsider.
