A man accused of carrying a loaded shotgun in his backpack near horse racing's prestigious Golden Slipper Day in Sydney has told court he doesn't want to bother with a bail application.

Kelly Stratton, 39, faces a string of charges after police allegedly found him with a loaded sawn-off shotgun, masks, gloves and 20 rounds of ammunition during a foot patrol at Rosehill on Saturday afternoon.

Stratton represented himself via video link at Parramatta bail court on Sunday where he was formally refused bail.

When asked by magistrate Carl Milovanovich whether he wanted to apply for bail Stratton said: "Only if you'll give it me".

Stratton said he was unaware of the details of his alleged offences.

Mr Milovanovich read 10 charges levelled against Stratton, including possession of an unlicensed firearm.

"No don't bother," Stratton then replied when asked for a second time if he wanted to apply for bail.

It is alleged Stratton intimidated and assaulted a male and female police office and used profane language outside a BP service station on the corner of James Ruse Drive and Hassal Street at Rosehill.

He was also found with two valium pills, it is alleged.

The case has been adjourned until Tuesday at Parramatta Local Court.
