Scone Tips January 28


Scone Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Last Chance Dance

Although wary if the market is trending late toward either or both of Aytobe and Miss Powerbelle, arguably two more talented gallopers, those two do have decent queries at presen which leaves this mare as the safest option.

Prepared by local trainer Scott Singleton, Last Chance Dance has been competitive throughout her 13-start career to date and has steadily improved with racing, breaking through in July last year before a pair of second-place finishes and was little unlucky not have won again that campaign.

The daughter of Unencumbered put in a career best performance first-up this summer when bursting through a gap for strong win on January 14 (margin should've been further) and staying at 900m, is the in-form runner in this field and she handles any conditions.


Scone Value Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Olympic Gaze

While he's only two runs into his second racing preparation and still very much a work in progress, this three-year-old has always shown some promise and following a frustrating first campaign, broke the Maiden first-up at Newcastle via a long run from the rear.

Despite never in winning calculations, the second-up performance was much better than the sixth-place finish suggests with Olympic Gaze unsuited with his racing pattern on a tight Gosford circuit and didn't balance up until it was all over, where he was doing his best work late.

Although not as seasoned as many of his rivals, this Paul Perry-trained gelding is the most progressive galloper in the field and now finally getting up to a staying journey, will get more of a look via the big expanses of Scone with a long straight to wind-up.


Scone Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Dalaalaat

Trainer Nathan Doyle and jockey Lee Magorrian have combined for eight winners at a very good strike of 29.6% over the last 12 months and they team up again in the last from Scone with this ex-Victorian who is on debut for the new yard.

A half-brother to a Group Two winning sprinter in Heatherly, Dalaalaat showed some potential over six starts for the Hayes & Dabernig stable although was hardly a punters pal, going down as a $1.45 favourite and an even money chance when throwing away a Pakenham Maiden, two outings which followed a competitive Listed effort on debut.

The son of Written Tycoon has had two good trials ahead of this return (fast run heat in the first hit-out, under a hold/eased up late in a strong field on January 19) and finding an 1100m contest here that is lacking speed, he does map to get the favours up front.
