North Pacific $26 to $15 for the Golden Rose on September 26 after winning Race 1 at Rosehill

ROSEHILL GARDENS

Race 1                   Favourite backers enjoyed a terrific start to the day with North Pacific winning easily
                                North Pacific was heavily backed when the opening price of $3.50 appeared on Wednesday
                                Despite the weight of support, North Pacific did drift late in betting from $2.30 to $2.60
                                Late bets of $5,000 at $2.30 and $5,000 at $2.50 were placed on North Pacific
                                Second elect Lady Banff was a notable raceday drifter ($3.70-$5) and was unplaced
                                Sahra ($8-$6.50-$7 on raceday) and Shaik ($12) were the minor placegetters

Race 2                   Favourite punters were left lamenting after well supported favourite Fulmina failed to place
                                Fulmina was backed on raceday from $2.60 to as short as $2.15 before closing $2.20
                                Fulmina attracted 62 percent of the support from TAB customers
                                Korcho was $17 out to $21 before closing $19 on raceday
                                One bet of $3,000 at $17 was placed on Korcho yesterday
                                New Arrangement ($7) and My Swashbuckler ($7) were the minor placegetters

Race 3                   Rothenburg appreciated the heavy going and was far too good in the TAB Highway
                                Rothenburg eased as raceday favourite from $4.20 to as much as $4.80 before closing $4.60
                                Second elect Starliv had raceday backing ($12-$8) but failed to figure in the placings
                                Runner-up Zakeriz was specked at a price on raceday from $14 to $11

Race 4                   In a head-bobbing finish, Lewis just managed to ger the better of Frosty Rocks
                                Lewis was solid throughout raceday betting around the $5-$6 mark before closing $5.50
                                Frosty Rocks ($4.60-$7) was easy in raceday betting and almost defied the drift
                                Steel Diamond ($7.50-$5.50-$6.50 on raceday) finished third
                                Zing ($5.50-$4.20-$4.60) was the unplaced favourite

Race 5                   Varda ploughed through the heavy and made it two wins from two starts this campaign
                                Varda hardly budged in raceday betting around the $2.70-$2.80 mark and closed $2.80
                                Support for Varda included a $4,000 wager at $2.80
                                Third placegetter Switched was backed from $3.90 to $3.10 before closing $3.40
