In this year’s renewal of the Rosehill Guineas, boom NZ filly Silent Achiever ($4) looks set to continue her rise to stardom. A commanding winner of the NZ Derby at Ellerslie last start, she has met every challenge trainer Roger James has set her. This form sees her installed as the $4 favourite for Saturday’s race.
Although widely drawn there will be good speed in the race with Doctor Doom ($41), Highly Recommended ($21), Laser Hawk ($6), Merlin Mustang ($34) and Big Time ($101) all looking to push forward. The main danger appears to be another kiwi in Ocean Park ($9) who had a luckless run from an inside gate in in the Randwick Guineas. This colt is by the same sire as last year’s winner Jimmy Choux and has an impressive record to match his brilliant turn of foot. Rock ‘N’ Pop ($16) ran second to Silent Achiever in the NZ Derby and is by the sire of the moment Fastnet Rock.
The locals appear to be an even bunch with Strike The Stars ($10), Ambidexter ($11) and Laser Hawk perhaps the best of them. Mosheen has been too good for the boys so far this autumn and this trend may well continue through the exploits of Silent Achiever.
