Timeform highlight three bets in Australia on Saturday

Timeform pick out three bets from Royal Randwick on Saturday...

Timeform on Roheryn

#10 Roheryn - Randwick R5 (05:25)

Roheryn came home strongly to make a winning return to action at Rosehill in June, and he wasn't beaten far when second at the same venue last time, again finishing with a flourish. He has won twice at this track previously and should relish the step up in trip, so rates high on the shortlist. Special Reward hasn't been seen since March but arrives here in search of a hat-trick and could emerge as the main danger.

#1 Sweet Deal - Randwick R6 (06:05)

Sweet Deal won here first up in February and has arguably not been seen to best advantage since having been stepped up in trip. She is dropped back to a more suitable distance here though and her ratings put her right in this. Adelong arrives here in search of a four-timer and is an obvious threat, while Invictus Salute is another who warrants consideration.

#7 Master Of Wine - Randwick R7 (06:45)

This looks to be a wide-open renewal of the Winx Stakes and it is Master Of Wine who shades the vote. This impressive gelding won four successive races before finishing fourth in the Queen Elizabeth last time, and he was unlucky not to finish closer that day, encountering a troubled passage. The wide draw should keep him out of trouble this time and a big run is expected, with Dreamforce and Verry Elleegant the two most likely dangers.
