John Schell's Tips For Scone (Tuesday)

By John Schell

Selections based on a soft track

Race 1 - 11:25AM VINERY’S HAWAII FIVE OH MAIDEN PLATE (1000 METRES)

10. Clear Thinking is a well-bred mare in a top stable on debut here. She has looked good in all three of her trials and only needs to run up to those efforts to justify the short quote and win this.

Dangers: 6. On The Quiet is on debut and had a trial in March of last year before having a break. He returned with a Muswellbrook trial win in January this year, and then finished second behind Clear Thinking in his only other recent trial, also at Muswellbrook. 8. Whistling Straits is having his first start and is a Tamworth trial winner, while 1. Blazed Prince was midfield in both runs earlier this year and could be placed here without surprising.

How to play it: Clear Thinking WIN.

Race 2 - 12:00PM WIDDEN STUD COUNTRY BOOSTED BM58 HANDICAP (1300 METRES)

3. Regatta showed ability in his initial campaign, winning a maiden at Muswellbrook at his third start. He resumed with a solid effort when third at Gunnedah and should be even better for that.

Dangers: 9. Invader’s Girl was a strong winner at Wellington three starts ago, and has since run well when second at Mudgee and fifth at Tamworth. Another forward showing is on the cards here. 10. The Favorite Son comes into this on the back of a Muswellbrook maiden win and warrants thought again. 5. Cumnock is a last start winner that has drawn wide here but has the talent to make an impact.

How to play it: Regatta WIN.

Race 3 - 12:40PM NATIVE TRAIL @ DARLEY BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1300 METRES)

7. Image Of The Sun showed enormous potential in her only three starts and resumes here. She won a Muswellbrook maiden as a short-priced favourite and wasn’t beaten far in the other two runs.

Dangers: 6. Choice Witness ran home fairly when midfield at Grafton then showed improvement to score a strong last start Muswellbrook victory. She looks suited here and should play a prominent part again. 4. Turnaway won at Tamworth three starts ago when good odds, and has since finished fourth and second at Moree and Wellington as favourite. This event looks within his grasp. 8. Who Ever Thought hasn’t been beaten far in any of his four runs since resuming from a spell, and is worth including among the main chances again.

How to play it: Image Of The Sun WIN.

Race 4 - 1:20PM PRYDE’S EASIFEED ENERGY PAK CLASS 1 HANDICAP (900 METRES)

2. Flying Rani was a winner at Gosford at just her second start, and her only two runs either side of that were solid enough efforts. She resumes here after two trials and is primed to run well.

Dangers: 3. Night Fighter resumes having won a Tamworth maiden at start two and then being placed in two further runs before being spelled. 5. Yuka Rose was dominant when winning at Newcastle when resuming and can go on with the job. 8. I’m Brazilian followed a Wellington maiden win with a last start fourth at Wyong, and a placing here wouldn’t shock.

How to play it: Flying Rani WIN.

Race 5 - 2:00PM COOLMORE MAIDEN HANDICAP (1300 METRES)

8. Lights Of Paradise is a well-bred filly in debut here and she’s had a number of trials in order to be prepared. She’s finished second in the most recent two and is drawn to advantage in gate two.

Dangers: 2. Machaon was beaten a long way when third at Kembla Grange on debut but the winner looks well above average so the margin can be disregarded when assessing his claims in this. 4. Alertado has been placed in three of seven starts and has been just behind the placings in his latest two starts at Tamworth. He should run well here. 9. Sebilla was placed on debut at Coonamble, then resumed with a midfield Gunnedah effort. She can show improvement on that in this.

How to play it: Lights Of Paradise EACH WAY.

Race 6 - 2:35PM SCONE RSL MAIDEN HANDICAP (1300 METRES)

4. Miss Cartel resumed from a spell with a solid second at Hawkesbury. She’s drawn well in this and has never been far from the action. This looks her chance to break through with a win.

Dangers: 6. Homeland debuted at Scone with an acceptable effort when midfield behind Move She Can. He should have derived benefit from that experience and should be in the thick of things in this. 9. Coast Guard is on debut for the Snowden stable and has had a number of trials leading into this which suggests he should be ready to run well. 10. Rockbarton Angel ran fourth at her only start at Newcastle back in April, and has won a trial leading into this which suggests she can run well.

How to play it: Miss Cartel WIN.

Race 7 - 3:10PM HITOTSU AT ARROWFIELD BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1700 METRES)

7. Irish Bliss was third-up from a spell at Kembla Grange last time out and did the job well to score a maiden victory. He’s drawn the inside barrier here and should get every chance.

Dangers: 6. Are You Joking hit the line well at Tamworth when third-up from a spell to score a strong victory. That took his record to two wins and three placings from seven starts, and he has the ability to figure prominently again in this company. 8. Tyson’s Dream won well at Quirindi two starts ago as favourite, then ran well again at Tamworth when finishing third, again as favourite. He’s had a tick over trial leading into this and should be thereabouts again. 5. Rothrock was placed when las produced and another forward showing is on the cards.

How to play it: Irish Bliss WIN.

Race 8 - 3:50PM ARTORIUS STANDING AT NEWGATE BM82 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)

9. South Of India has looked good winning three of his four starts, and despite being a little wayward he was holding his rivals safely at Hawkesbury last time out. He should give a great sight again.

Dangers: 13. I’m Not Slew is resuming from a spell and her form was solid enough at the end of last campaign, including a sixth at Canterbury when beaten less than two lengths. 3. Broken Hill won three on end last campaign, then failed to fire in The Kosciuszko when he didn’t beat a runner home. He resumes here and has had two trials leading into this. Has talent and should sprint well fresh. 8. Leave Me Some did well to run into the placings last time out and can do the same again if the breaks go the right way.

How to play it: South Of India WIN.

Race 9 - 4:25PM INGLIS DIGITAL JUNE SALE - BIDDING CLOSING TOMORROW C1 (1100M)

9. Move She Can may have started at cricket score odds on debut at this track during the cup carnival, but she did the job in a manner that suggests it was no fluke. She’s drawn an awkward alley in this but should run well again.

Dangers: 2. Ready To Shine was midfield at Goulburn on debut, then improved to score a win at Gosford last month when racing on the speed and fighting on well. He should run well here if he can repeat that effort. 7. Zahdi wasn’t beaten far when midfield at Scone when last produced, and her form is good enough for her to figure in the finish in this company. 16. Off The Press was a winner at his second race start at Gilgandra and resumes from a spell here. He should be primed to sprint well fresh.

How to play it: Move She Can EACH WAY.

Best Bets:
Race 2 (3) Regatta.
Race 6 (4) Miss Cartel.

Best Value:
Race 9 (9) Move She Can.
