Sydney Specials: Rosehill - 15th June 2019

If early markets are anything to go by it could be a favourites day at Rosehill with seven horses priced at $2.40 or less.

While I concede they hold strong claims, I couldn't mark any of them as short as their current price and hence happy to play away from them.

The Ron Quinton trained Ljungberg failed to win as favourite first up, but his run held merit and he is expected to show good improvement racing second up.

Resuming over 1200m, Ljungberg loomed up to win at the 200m, before just peaking on his run late, finishing fourth behind England.

He notably meets the latter 2.5kg better off at the weights and has drawn to get a lovely suck run for Sam Clipperton.

Last preparation he spiked significantly second up and if able to follow a similar form profile, he appears very well placed on Saturday.

The expected sting out of the track also aids his chances and confident he brings the A1 form through Vegadaze.

Easily one of the more competitive races of the day, but with his even share of luck, I'll be surprised if Ljungberg isn't in the finish.

The Chris Waller trained So You Win is a last start winner at the course and distance and there is no reason to jump off on Saturday.

Having really caught the eye first up, So You Win took a good step forward last start, returning a new career peak in the process.

Admittedly aided by a gun ride from Sam Weatherly, however the clock doesn't lie and he is certainly airborne this preparation.

No knock on the Mark Newnham trained Quackerjack, he sets up well on the seven day turn around, however we have nothing between the pair and hence more than happy to swing So You Win's way.

Will need a touch of luck from the inside draw, but trust in Jason Collett to get him home.
