Rosehill Gardens mounting yard report… By Matthew Howard of MYL

Upscale is this weeks horse to follow from MYL. Photo courtesy Daryl Duckworth.

Matthew Howard of Mounting Yard Mail was back at Rosehill Gardens on the weekend and for those that follow on race day had an absolute fill up. Of the 9 races on Saturday 5 of his on top selections from the yard saluted with another 2 running second and arguably with better rides could have also won. For those that already haven’t I would suggest you like Mounting Yard Live’s Facebook page and follow on Twitter so that you can take advantage of Matthew’s expertise on race day.

Below is this week’s report which you can read Matthew’s thoughts on his Facebook page and Twitter each Saturday prior to each race to assist with finding some winners:
