Christmas Melody Playing For Lees & Gibbons At Scone (Friday)

The formidable Kris Lees and Andrew Gibbons combination looks set for some Christmas cheer starting at Scone on Friday with the duet a very real chance of combining for multiple winners.

The successful partnership heads to the Upper Hunter with a very competitive group of gallopers including the lightly-raced Silver Melody who has drawn ideally in race 6, the Super One @ Newgate Class 3 Handicap over 900m.

The three-year-old filly will have to earn her stripes against the older horses the tough way after being given topweight of 59.5kg.

In-form hoop Gibbons maintains his successful association with the filly that is likely to find herself high-balling with the likes of Darby Racing’s flying machine Reprimand and Cody Morgan’s Nicconi gelding, Strictly Legit.

Elcano returns to Scone in the 1600m Yarraman Park Maiden Handicap after getting way out of his ground at the same track and distance last start and working home to be beaten under a length.

Better for the experience and likely conditions to suit will see the High Chaparral gelding ready to break his maiden.

The Horsepower 2yr Old Maiden Plate, 900m will see Lees's son of Snitzel, Snowzone, appear for the second time after a very encouraging debut at Newcastle.

Although drawn awkwardly in 11, jockey Andrew Gibbons will have the benefit of the chute start to find his place in what looks a very competitive race with competition from the Snowden, Baker, Widdup and Connors stables.

Lees and Gibbons also combine with last start winner, the up and coming stayer Bedivere in the Arrowfield Stud Benchmark 58 (2200m), as well as Wild Kingdom in the last race, the Buy A Turangga Yearling 2019 (1300m).

The first of eight races at Scone commences at 1:25pm.
