Scone Tips August 12


PFD FOODS CLASS 1 HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)

Scone Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Capital Reign

By Capitalist and out of the dam Elle Lou, a Group Three winning miler, Capital Reign went straight to the lead in his April 9 debut, dictating the event before drifting out in the run home, but he had still had a big margin on his nearest rival

If he runs straight, that's probably a four or five length victory at Canberra and Kibosh finished second in that 1000m dash, a mare that won three of her next four starts including a BM64 in town, so that form is stacking ahead of his second campaign.

Tipped out after a third at Warwick Farm in his second career outing, it was racing manners (went too hard) that proved costly for this gelding, but off a good trial and resuming over 900m, he may just be too sharp here, albeit it's quite a strong Class 1.

SHARP OFFICE BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)

Scone Value Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Moetta

This is a Provincial 64, hence the each-way odds for this mare, but she's back on her home track this Thursday following Highway attempts and after a narrow defeat in the June 5 edition, nothing went her way in the next two outings.

Moetta was caught wide at Rosehill on July 3 and considering the trip she endured, stuck on fairly prior to her sixth-place finish on July 31 when box-seating early, but was badly held-up in the run home and no doubt should've finished much closer.

I do think that was quite a strong Highway and although the 1200m is still a query for this five-year-old, now hard fit and getting good relief courtesy of the 2kg Reece Jones claim, she won't get a better chance to run it out than here.

REWARD HOSPITALITY CLASS 1 HANDICAP Tips (Race 8)

Scone Best Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Sammy

Off a nice first-up effort at Wyong over 1200m, it's good placement by Kris Lees on Thursday who's just the lowered the eyes a little more now finding a 1400m Class 1, and finds a field with very little depth in the last from Scone.

By Medaglia D'oro and out of Samantha Miss, a three-time Group One winner, Sammy won't be living up to his breeding, but he's certainly no slouch and could well be a midweek/fringe Saturday class runner eventually as still a lightly raced gelding.

Carrying just 56kg after the Dylan Gibbons claim, he's very well in via a race that does lack quality and on this big circuit where they can fan wider deep into a meeting, barrier eight is about perfect, so there shouldn't be any excuses now getting to a suitable trip.

Verdict

Sammy was good fresh and in a weak last race from Scone this Thursday, he won't get a better chance to record win number two.

The speedy Capital Reign will take some catching in Race 5 while in Race 7, Moetta has some claims off a few luckless Highway attempts.
