The Golden Rose is one of the first Group 1 races for the three-year-old contingent. Held in late September, the $1 million race features all the best juveniles from the season prior. 

What makes it such an interesting race is that punters don’t know which juveniles will mature and make quality three-year-olds. 

That’s the test when having a punt on the Golden Rose but it makes for an intriguing race. 

It also makes for good value from bookmakers. Punters can bet on the 2019 Golden Rose now and with no runners currently quoted at single-figure odds, it’s value paradise. 

2019 Golden Rose Best Bet – Microphone @ 11.00

 
James Cummings lines up the colt which looked good winning four of his six career starts as a two-year-old.
 
The well-bred son of Exceed And Excel finished second in the Group 1 Golden Slipper before taking out the Sires’ Produce at Randwick in fine style. 

He scored by just under a length over Loving Gaby and we’re predicting that form to stack up nicely.
 
He has the body type of a colt that could mature into a nice stud prospect as a three-year-old and given his big race experience, he could take out the Golden Rose.
 
Punters are getting 11.00 with bookmakers and that’s certainly worth taking. 

2019 Golden Rose Best Each Way – Yes Yes Yes @ 11.00

 
Yes Yes Yes is on the same line of betting as Microphone and represents a good each-way chance at those odds.
 
The Chris Waller-trained runner, which started with Darren Weir, is a three-time winner from five starts.
 
His best performance came when winning the Group 2 Todman Stakes at Randwick and he wasn’t suited by the wet track in the Slipper. 

He finished seventh but never looked likely in the heavy conditions. With the track likely to be in the good range come September, Yes Yes Yes could reward punters.
 
Yes Yes Yes has the scope to fill out and mature into a more-than-handy three-year-old colt.

2019 Golden Rose Best Roughie – Prince Fawaz @ 15.00

 
The Anthony Cummings-trained runner is more likely to be running over 1600-2000m this spring, but he’s a past winner at 1400m.
 
He scored a Group 1 J.J. Atkins Plate win to end last season and that was a terrific galloping display at Eagle Farm. However, the competition will be stiffer for the Golden Rose so that shouldn’t be overlooked.
 
Despite that, there’s plenty to like about Prince Fawaz and the odds are appealing.
