Let’s preview the field:

Newcastle trained The Mission is at the top of the standings for the Golden Rose, after winning the Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Royal Randwick during the Autumn. He’s had one run upon returning, a less than useful effort in the Stan Fox Stakes, racing erratically and proving a handful for jockey Corey Brown, eventually finishing last. He’s drawn handily at 3, if he can get away cleanly and race kindly, he’s more than capable. $81

Menari has returned this spring in fine fettle, recording two wins: The Rosebud (1100m) on 12th August and the Run to The Rose (1200m) on Sept 9. He had a wide draw in his previous race and is also drawn out in this. If Josh Parr can repeat the same tactics on bringing him over early, he’s a good chance to make it three ‘roses’ in a row. Will probably start favourite. $2.00

The exciting Sydney colt Pariah is one of three Snowden runners in the field. He’s a last start second to Menari in the Run To The Rose, while prior to that, he won the San Domenico Stakes over 1100m on the 26th August. Will appreciate the good track conditions, though a wide draw doesn’t help. Expect a starting duel with Menari coming across from the outside barrier. Is good enough to win it. $6.50

The Sebring colt Gold Standard has had four starts, for two wins and two seconds. He’s timed his cause perfectly with a win in the Stan Fox Stakes two weeks ago. Aptly named for this race, it wouldn’t surprise to see him do well here. Tommy Berry is the rider. $12.00

It’s hard to get a read on Gerald Ryan’s colt Trapeze Artist. He’s had seven race day starts yet hasn’t strung any notable performances other than a third to Invader and Summer Passage in the ATC Sires Produce, on a very heavy track at Royal Randwick. Would surprise, even at place bet odds. $34.00

Trained on the track by Team Hawkes, Snitzel colt Chauffeur could be the one to have in your multiples. His Golden Slipper start was probably based on his second placing in the Gold Coast Magic Millions (to Houtzen) back in January. He’s another that might appreciate the better footing, a handy barrier draw, and stretching out to 1400m. Keep handy. $21.00

Melbourne raider Merchant Navy has come north for the Golden Rose. Caulfield trainer Ciaran Maher wouldn’t venture away from Victoria if he didn’t think this colt was up to the task. The Fastnet Rock colt is unbeaten coming into this and has won twice over 1400m. Has an inside barrier but has yet to run on a right-handed course. Has the Melbourne form-line but will it translate to Sydney? $8.00

The Warwick Farm trained Diamond Tathagata had a useful introduction to racing, running second to Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign at his debut, then winning the Group 2 Skyline Stakes at his second start. Since then, his form has been on the downside, and it would be a case of raised eyebrows if he ran in the top three. $151.00

The lightly raced Dracarys is the second of the Snowden entrants. Four starts for two wins, though in lesser company. Won at his last start over 1300m defeating Gold Standard and Trapeze Artist. Has the inside alley here, if it can keep out of trouble, might be worth a shot as a place bet. $20.00

One of the more interesting runners is the Sebring colt Assimilate, to be ridden by Hugh Bowman. This is the third Snowden runner, who only started going to the races back in July. So far, three starts for two wins and a second, though the company here in the Golden Rose is much stronger. Will be interested to see how he goes. $13.00

Shogun Sun is the only Queenslander in the field. Apart from a decent fifth in the Run To The Rose two weeks back, this horse has been racing in lesser company up on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane. Prior to his last start I would have said no way to this horse, but now I’m not so sure. Could be the smokey of the race. $26.00

The second of the Paul Perry runners, Perast ran a useful third in the Run To The Rose, which is proving to be the ‘go-to’ form guide for this race. Three placings from six starts has this horse in the zone. He could be one of the race leaders coming from a handy draw. Watch out! $71.00

Victorian filly Formality represents high-class in this field. She’s been placed six times from seven starts, her only failure was on a heavy track in the Golden Slipper. Three things to note leading into the race: she hasn’t raced beyond 1400m, a filly very rarely wins the Golden Rose, and she has a very wide barrier draw (13). She’ll have to be super good to win this. $19.00

The second of the fillies to line up is the Bjorn Baker trained Champagne Cuddles. Has had five starts and hasn’t been out of the money. Is backing up from last weeks second to Alizee in the Tea Rose Stakes at Royal Randwick, and prior to that a second to Formality in the Furious Stakes. The fillies get 2kg weight advantage on the boys and has to be a chance. Sure to be at enticing odds. $19.00

Menari $2.00

Menari, Merchant Navy, Pariah
