Scone Tips August 3


PRYDE'S EASIFEED MAIDEN PLATE Tips (Race 2)

Scone Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 5 Decadent Tale

There was money for this mare at big odds ($51-$31) prior to her debut over the Scone 1300m and after getting into a speed battle along way out, she was always going to be vulnerable late, but still managed to safely hold down second.

That winner, Steplee came out of a strong Maiden on debut and franked the run of that July 17 contest against Decadent Tale, bolting in again as an odds-on favourite at Muswellbrook on Saturday, so the form is starting to stack up nicely.

This four-year-old had three lengths to spare on Jousting, the rival that she shared the lead with and if rated a little kinder on Tuesday, can go close now with that key race experience under her belt.

EMIRATES PARK CLASS 2 HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)

Scone Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Faith In Kind

While he is a long between drinks, there clearly always been some opinion of this lightly raced eight-year-old, a galloper that was good on return in a Provincial BM64 at Newcastle when making up a stack of ground from the rear of the field.

It wasn't a dissimilar return to the 1300m performance last December which came of a lengthy lay-off (581 days) and second-up that campaign, Faith In Kind competed in a Metro BM72 where he got home quite well from an impossible position.

Now contesting a Country Class 2, this is by far the weakest event he's faced over his last two preparations and if jockey Rory Hutchings can have him within striking range, he certainly has the ability to figure here if right.

ARROWFIELD BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP Tips (Race 6)

Scone Best Bet - Race 6 No. 2 Ballistic Moon

With 19 winners from his 85 runners since the start of June, trainer Gary Portelli is enjoying a successful winter to date and first-up with this four-year-old, he looks very well placed in a Country BM58.

After competing well in some handy Provincial Maidens last spring, Ballistic Moon was able to strike fresh in February, sprinting straight past a subsequent dual winner in Formeinaway at Newcastle, while it's worth forgetting July 9 return.

Ballistic Moon stayed in the gates via that most recent attempt, so was forced to trial and ticked the box there in good style, winning a strong July 19 heat at Hawkesbury where he jumped cleanly, so willing to give him another chance.

Verdict

Ballistic Moon (Race 6) had excuses first-up, but has since trialed well and finds a winnable race on Tuesday.

Decadent Tale was brave on debut and is a strong each-way chance in Race 2, while in Race 5, Faith In Kind is down in grade off a good fresh run.
