Northam Set To Chastise Opposition At Scone Today

By Brenton Le Grand

Local trainer Rodney Northam looks to continue his hot vein of form at Scone on Monday, having had four winners and 10 placings from his past 31 runners.

Northam debuts his Star Witness gelding Chastise ($26 on TAB fixed odds) in the Yarraman Park Maiden Handicap over 900m following a handy trial in Open company at Quirindi on June 11.

The two-year-old has drawn well on the rails and has in-form hoop Ben Looker to steer.

“He trialled really well at Quirindi and barrier one is always an advantage around here,” Northam said.

“Obviously trials are different to race day but I expect him to be close enough to the speed from that gate and he should run really well on his home track first-up.”

Northam then rounds out the day with his three-year-old Joey’s Chance ($19) in the Vinery Class 1 Handicap over 1100m.

The Excelebration gelding comes out of a strong form race at Dubbo on June 14 beaten by the promising three-year-olds Herzogovina and Mornay.

“He ran really well last start in good company and we should see a bit of improvement again,” Northam said. “He’s still pretty green but will appreciate being on his home track on Monday.”

Perhaps the most interesting watch on the eight-race card is the Emirates Park Class 1 Handicap over 900m with many strong stables represented.

The Snowden camp brings their exciting two-year-old Deep Field colt North ($3.30) to the races for the third time.

Gates open at 11.30am with the first race scheduled for 12.20pm. Entry is free with a buffet lunch and afternoon tea available.
