Hawk’s Saturday Selections – Australian Guineas Day

March 2, 2013

Another week, another top card of racing.

Rosehill’s card is fantastic for this stage of the autumn, but unfortunately it has been marred by heavy rain over the last week, especially the last 48 hours.

The Flemington card is not as strong, with the best races programmed for next weekend. But a beautiful day weather-wise should make it an opportune day for punters.

The scratching of All Too Hard from the Australian Guineas this morning, for which he was $1.33 favourite, has opened up the race dramatically and gives every horse the chance to record a Group 1 victory.

There is a third three year old feature today which should get attention, in addition to the Australian Guineas and the Hobartville Stakes. The New Zealand Derby is a great race each year, always unearthing a galloper who goes on to bigger and better things on both sides of the Tasman.

There are a couple of very promising horses lining up, so I’ll give my tips for the New Zealand Derby today.
