Run to the Rose to tell Golden tale

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Ray Thomas

THE odds are short­en­ing that the Golden Rose win­ner will be seen in ac­tion at Rose­hill Gar­dens on Satur­day.

The run­ning of the Group 2 $175,000 Run to the Rose (1200m) is go­ing to be a sig­nif­i­cant form ref­er­ence for the com­ing spring car­ni­val.

Star Turn, a bril­liant win­ner of the San Domenico Stakes ear­lier this month, is ex­pected to take on the likes of Mediter­ranean, El Divino, Good Stand­ing and Godol­phin duo Im­pend­ing and Telpe­rion in the Run to the Rose.

This will be their fi­nal lead-up run be­fore the first Syd­ney Group 1 race of the new sea­son, the $1 mil­lion Golden Rose (1400m) at Rose­hill Gar­dens on Septem­ber 10.

IM­PEND­ING SUC­CESS

MY TIP for this week­end is to fol­low Im­pend­ing in the Run to the Rose.

He may lack the race fit­ness of Star Turn but if Im­pend­ing runs a com­pet­i­tive race then he will be the one to beat when he gets out to 1400m for the Golden Rose.
