Godolphin Target More Scone Cup Success

By Brad Gray

A Darren Beadman-led Godolphin heads into Friday’s Listed Scone Cup (1600m) with two runners in Duca Valentinois and Moher.

Moher, on the back of running second in the Hawkesbury Guineas, is rated a $6 chance with TAB Fixed Odds and will be out to turn the tables on Fabrizio who is the $4.60 favourite. Moher meets Fabrizio 1.5kg better off for a 0.96L defeat with Kerrin McEvoy maintaining the ride.

“His run was a beauty the other day,” said Beadman. “He ran up to win a race that was run at a very solid speed.”

“He is cherry ripe and is going to be hard to beat.”

The stable will also be represented by five-year-old Duca Valentinois who has drawn ideally in barrier 5 and is priced $8, with Michael Dee to ride.

“The draw is the key to this horse. He had a torrid run in the Hawkesbury Cup but he should be able to get nice cover from a good gate here,” Beadman said.

“The run has brought him on nicely and I think he’ll certainly look the winner at some stage.”

The Scone Cup has been a happy hunting ground for the Godolphin operation (who formerly trained under the Darley banner). John O’Shea saw Cameo win the $200,000 feature in 2014 while Raspberries (2012) and Dysphonia (2011) took it out when Peter Snowden was at the helm.
