We'll message you the best tips for today!
The Rosehill Guineas is a Group 1 race, run under set weights conditions for three year olds. Held on Golden Slipper day, the $700k feature has long been a staple on the Sydney Autumn Racing calendar, having first been run in 1910.
It is also the second leg of the Sydney Triple Crown for 3YO’s, the first being the G1 Randwick Guineas, won this year by Converge, and the last being the G1 Australian Derby.
Looking at the market for this year’s Rosehill Guineas, Dabble has Godolphin colt Anamoe favourite at $2.00, ahead of last start G1 victor Converge at $3.60. Boom colt Profondo is on the next line at $5.50, and Forgot You is the only other running in the market at $9.00.
However, as we’ve seen in recent weeks, the 3YO’s this season look an even bunch. So, we have dissected each of the horses’ chances for you! Read on below to find our runner by runner preview of the 2022 Rosehill Guineas along with The Shark’s best tips.
1. Anamoe (9) – $2.00F
Jockey – James McDonald 56.5kg
Trainer – James Cummings
Cox Plate runner up, who was good last start in the Randwick Guineas behind Converge. He took a while to wind up on that occasion, which suggests the step up to 2000m may now be what he’s looking for. McDonald will be looking to find cover from the outside gate, and he should be finishing hard.
2. Converge (8) – $3.60
Jockey – Tim Clark 56.5kg
Trainer – Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott
Scratched from the G1 George Ryder to run in this. Got the job done last start in the G1 Randwick Guineas, beating favourite Anamoe. Tim Clark gave him a 10/10 ride on that occasion, and it proved the difference in the end. He’s untried past a mile, but he relaxes well, and should be able to show his customary turn of foot yet again.

3. Profondo (6) – $5.50
Jockey – Hugh Bowman 56.5kg
Trainer – Richard Litt
Disappointed first-up in the G1 Australian Guineas, where he did a lot wrong. Finds himself back in Sydney, over 2000m where he destroyed his rivals last prep in the G1 Spring Champion. Bowman takes over in the saddle, and he’s more than capable of hitting back hard in this race.
4. Forgot You (4) – $9.00
Jockey – Mark Zahra 56.5kg
Trainer – Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young
Got to the line well first-up in the G3 CS Hayes Stakes behind Pinstriped, before again getting home hard in the G1 Australian Guineas last time out. The step up to 2000m looks ideal, where he is already a G2 winner. Drawn well, and looks hard to beat on his recent form.
5. Raging Bull (5) – $51
Jockey – Sam Clipperton 56.5kg
Trainer – David Payne
Hasn’t been far away in the Hobartville and Randwick Guineas, since resuming from a break. Ran 4th in last year’s Victorian Derby, which suggests the step up in trip will help. Looks the best of the roughies.
6. Sword Point (7) – Scratched
Jockey – Nash Rawiller 56.5kg
Trainer – Chris Waller
Finished 4th in BM78 grade last start, coming off a short freshen. Prior to that was dominant at this track/distance in weaker grade. Will trip fitter here, but may struggle to measure up class wise.
7. Sinba (1) – $31
Jockey – Jason Collett 56.5kg
Trainer – Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou
Got back and made little impression last start in the G1 Randwick Guineas. Steps up to 2000m now where he is untried, and would need to improve on his last effort to be competitive.
8. Three Wise Men (3) – $126
Jockey – Tom Sherry 56.5kg
Trainer – Edward Cummings
Has found the line ok in both runs this prep, albeit in BM64 and Class 1 grade. Untried this trip, and would need to find considerably on his recent efforts.
9. Mediaro (2) – $61
Jockey – Jay Ford 56.5kg
Trainer – Matthew Smith
Canberra maiden winner two back, who was only fair last start in BM64 grade. Lightly raced, but that form doesn’t look strong enough here.
This year’s Rosehill Guineas looks to have four main chances, those being the runners at the top of the page.
After weighing up the options, Adrian and I have decided that CONVERGE will contest the G1 Rosehill Guineas on Saturday 🔴⚫️💫

Anamoe was strong from the back in the Randwick Guineas last start over a mile, and looks as though the 2000m here will suit. He was placed in the Cox Plate last Spring, and is a deserved favourite in this.
Converge was able to get the better of Anamoe last start in the Randwick Guineas, and will be out to do the same again here. As mentioned, he’s a relaxed customer with a lethal turn of foot, which may well see him very effective over 10 furlongs. Looks a good chance of taking out the first two legs of the Triple Crown.
Boom colt Profondo was a complete forget run first up in the Australian Guineas for mine. He wanted to hang badly, and is capable of improving big time here.
Also out of the Australian Guineas, Forgot You looks primed to run a big race third up here. He won the G2 Vase at Moonee Valley last spring over 2040m, and has drawn well in this. He is my on top selection at good odds, in a race that looks to have four main winning hopes.
Raging Bull looks the best roughie for anyone wanting to throw some value into exotics.
