Rosie chasing four straight

Our Cracklin Rosie chases a quartet of 1000m wins on Saturday’s program at The Valley when she contests the opening event at BM70 level for three-year-olds.

Shane Nichols’ speedster won each of those three races leading throughout and the Mornington horseman says despite a few potential doubts, she can again give a good account of herself.

“She’s had three runs now with the blinkers on and has been good enough to win them all,” Nichols said, “She likes The Valley and they just keep putting these races on for us. So, while they’re doing that, we’ll front up.

“I’ve got my slight reservations; I know it’s easy to be guarded when they’ve won three in a row, but she goes up now to 60kgs, less the claim of 1.5kgs for Will Price, and she has had a run every fortnight at 1000m, which is difficult to keep her sharp with constant racing like that.

“If you didn’t know those facts, you’d look at her in the flesh and think she looks as good as she has all prep.”

Our Cracklin Rosie will jump from the widest barrier in the six-horse field and is firm in the market, currently a $5 hope with Sportsbet.

Nichols’ attention on Saturday will be split between Moonee Valley and Randwick, with impressive debutant two-year-old winner Climate Change headed north.

She qualifies for the Inglis Millenium in February, so it’s a good opportunity with no two-year-old race in Melbourne,” Nichols said.

“I don’t want to give her too many runs before a let-up, so it’s ideal we go there. If she came through it well, she could run in the Blue Diamond exempt race at Geelong.”
