2023 Coolmore Classic Day Preview

Horse racing tips incoming! Dabble’s very own Tai Ryan has broken down the card at Rosehill this Saturday, which includes the $600K Group 1, the Coolmore Classic. They’ve done all the hard work for you finding the best horse racing tips, so you don’t even have to lift a finger – how nice is that?!

Without further ado, see Tai Ryan’s best bet, next best and value bet for the card at Rosehill:

Best Bet - 9. Ruthless Dame ($7.50 / $2.65) - Race 8, Group 1 Coolmore Classic

How good is Group 1 racing! The NZ-bred Ruthless Dame hasn’t missed a place in her four career runs, three of which have been at Group level, with both of her wins coming from a dry track. In her last start two weeks ago, she was three-wide with no cover the entire trip and narrowly finished second in the Surround Stakes. She's unproven at this exact distance but it's a decent enough barrier (10), has 4.5kg on the top weight and jockey Dylan Gibbons is going for his first Group 1 win.

Next Best - 15. King Frankel ($5.00 / $2.00) - Race 7, Group 3 Furphy Sky High Stakes

Trained by Mark Newnham, King Frankel is looking to win four in a row here. The five-year-old was very impressive when winning at 1900m first up last start, at Rosehill in the Parramatta Cup. Talented jockey Tyler Schiller retains the ride, and they'll jump from barrier three. There are some impressive runners in this race (I'll be keeping an eye on the international Yulong runner), but he still looks well placed to go very well here and add more black-type to his name, plus his odds are shortening with every word I type here! I'll be backing him each way.

Value Bet - 4. Awesome John ($23.00 / $4.80) - Race 6, Group 2 Chandon Phar Lap Stakes

We all know a John - they're usually pretty reliable and consistent. Awesome John here is no different, not having missed a place in his last six starts. His trainer John O'Shea also has a pretty decent record! At his last start at Canterbury, he was held up from the 400m - 200m, but still managed to battle on well and finish off the race in second position. It's his first time going around Rosehill but he's got the form, a great jockey aboard and if all the dots connect, I think he's got a chance of being up there in the finish.

And just like that – you've got three awesome tips. Isn’t that awesomely awesome? Yeah, we think so!
