18/07/02 Rosehill Rivals - Brown vs Beadman Preview
The Sydney jockey premiership battle between Corey Brown and Darren Beadman continues at Rosehill on Saturday.

Both top jockeys have a full book of eight rides on the day and they look certain to figure in the finish in most of the races.

Beadman should get away to a bright start when he rides the boom youngster Thorn Park. Brown's mount in that race in the handy juvenile Recruiting.

Brown, who's appeal against a recent suspension will be heard on Monday afternoon, is currently leading the race by half a win.

Here's the form book for the two jockeys on Saturday:

Race 1
Brown -
RECRUITING - Bede Murray trained youngster who has shown plenty of talent in the past. First up run the other day was a shade disappointing. Ready to improve. Quinella chance.
- THORN PARK - Boom youngster who was super impressive in his first start recently. The Bob Thomsen stable has a huge opinion of him and he is expected to win.
Thorn Park should romp home.

Race 2
- PRESENTLY - Racing in great form. Her last two wins in town have been very authoritative. Rises another kilo in weight, but is set to prove the measuring stick again.
- MARVILHA - Consistent filly who is racing well without winning. Was narrowly gunned down by Shovoff two runs back and then ran a handy third the other day. Has her share of weight.
Presently marginally over Marvilha.

Race 3
- ATOCHA - Another provinicially trained galloper in great form. Was a good winner two starts back before a close up last start fourth. Looks ideally suited over 1400 metres here.
- LABASA - Former kiwi gelding from the Graeme Rogerson stable who was a winner two starts back at Kensington over 1300 metres. Not beaten far last start and is drawn well.
Equally good chances.

Race 4
- COABLO - Nick Moraitis owned mare who was an impressive last start winner at Warwick Farm. Her only query could be the fact that she may get back and is racing over 100m shorter than last start.
- PIXEL - A winner at this track late last year, the Bill Mitchell trained galloper has been around the place of late without really threatening. Have to be at her best to win this.
Coablo looks to have Pixel's measure.

Race 5
- MR. PLATINUM - Was racing in great form before failing last Saturday at Randwick. A start before he made the step up from the provincials to the city by winning well at Canterbury. Place hope.
- GRAND INVESTOR - Rogerson trained gelding who was a winner back in May at Canterbury. Up to city class, but has been struggling to fill a place of late. Not a great winning strike rate.
Neither really look like winners but Mr. Platinum would be the best of the two.

Race 6
- WORDS OF MAGIC - Tim Martin trained galloper who is racing in first class form. Was beaten at Gosford last start, but that was by Bulletproof Billy, who's now a last start stakes winner. Huge hope.
- MR. ROYSTON - Enigmatic Rogerson trained sprinter who is capable on his day, but his days are few and far between. Was a barrier trial winner in late June after failing in stakes class.
Words of Magic looks the one to beat.

Race 7
- SHAMROCKS - Last start ran an encouraging third to Interbank at this track. Always runs well at this track and at this distance. Working up to a win. Strong each way chance.
- THORNS - Dropping in class after being soundly beaten in the listed June Stakes. Hasn't got the best strike rate, but his five starts at the track have netted two wins and a second.
Shamrocks may be the best of the stablemates here.

Race 8
- DASHIKI - Another Hawkes trained runner who has been racing in terrific form. Impressive last start win here should be followed up with an encouraging run on Saturday. Hard to beat.
- RED LEADER  - Emergency who isn't even guaranteed a start. Scored a mini upset when scoring at double figure odds last start at Canterbury. Place appears the best chance here. Respect.
Dashiki definitely the one. Red Leader isn't guaranteed a start.

IN SUMMARY: Corey Brown appears to have the better book of rides, although Beadman is nearly a certainty to win the first on the boom galloper Thorn Park. With a suspension hanging over his head and a chance of missing the final two meetings of the season Brown would need to finish with atleast one, if not two, more wins on Saturday.
