We take a look through the seven race program at Scone on 26 March
How about starting the day with a free $100 bet from IASBet?
Race 1: SEH Specialists In Equine (900m)
The opening race on the seven race Scone meeting sees the Class 3 over 900m. Going with No 3 Jagonal from the Albert Stapleford yard. A Lonhro gelding with three wins and two placed efforts from 11 starts should see him held in high regard in this event. Disappointing last time out over this distance, improvement is expected. No 2 Hot Diggity has only been out of the places once in his six starts to date and that alone should see him as one of the ones to beat here, while No 1 Scram races first up here from a spell and although lumped with 59.5kg should run well. Rounding out the top four is No 8 Typhoon Fury who is first up from a spell but has been runner-up in his three starts before a break.
Race 2: SEH PRO. Sales Radiography (1100m)
Race over 1100m for the two-year-olds and we are putting No 5 Elegant Doubt from the Paul Perry stable on top as she has some race experience. A daughter of Not A Single Doubt, the filly finished two-and-three-quarter lengths behind the highly touted Diamond Oasis on debut and should be open to plenty of improvement. No 8 Raffinato was spell after her debut seventh and the Fastnet Rock filly from the Tim Martin stable drops sharply in grade to this race and did finish second in a recent barrier trial. No 9 Street Dance is a first starter by Savabeel from the Kris Lees stable who was a recent trial place getter, while No 2 Myalla Blaze should have improvement off a debut seventh at Gosford.
Race 3: SEH Reproductive Service (1100m)
Three-year-old and Upwards maiden over the 1100m sees No 13 Statuette from the Paul Messara camp looks a good chance on debut. A daughter of Redoute’s Choice, the filly scored a three-quarter length win in a Rosehill barrier trial and on her home track here should run well. No 1 Jade’s Command is a four-year-old Commands gelding having his first start after a barrier trial placing recently. No 5 Mr Smart is a Nadeem gelding who has placed in both of his starts to date and with any further improvement should be a in the places again here, while No 10 Irish Teardrop is a Fastnet Rock filly having her first start and should take improvement on whatever she does.
Race 4: SEH Intensive Care (1300m)
Maiden over 1300m greets us for the fourth of the day with No 2 Dicaprio from the Paul Messara yard looking a good chance. Finishing sixth on debut over 1400m at Kembla Grange he drops back in distance and class here and that run should see him competitive here. No 4 Mundo Nova has had three starts for trainer Kris Lees and has been placed in two of those and should be open to further improvement here. No 10 Amelia Dreams has had ten starts for five placed efforts but is yet to be able to crack it for the win. Racing second up here after finished in the runner up stall first up, the Elvstroem gelding should be in the finish. No 1 Truly Effective is a well-bred Dane Shadow gelding who ran second last time out and should be open to further improvement here.
Race 5: SEH Advancing Equine Health (1400m)
Benchmark 60 over the 1400m and we have gone with No 3 Golotto, a six-year-old Country Reel mare who was a last start winner. See to get down to 1.5kg above the minimum after a claim, she should prove very hard to beat. No 9 Ona’s Choice has put together a string of four placed efforts and deserves to crack it here for a win, while No 4 Annexation is a four-year-old Anabaa mare in good recent form without winning and should be included fourth up from a spell. Rounding out the top four is No 1 Ay Dee Bee from the Luke Griffith yard. A mare by Cather In The Rye, she is not the roughest in the field and should have improved third up from a spell.
Race 6: SEH Dedicated Expert Care (1600m)
Class 1/Maiden over the 1600m is the third leg of the Scone Quaddie and it looks quite an open race, but putting No 5 Krypton on top. Having his fourth run in this time, the Hussonet gelding from the Paul Messara stable looks open to improvement and should run a good race, while No 15 Nell is an interesting commodity. A three-year-old filly by Commands, the Paul Perry-trained runner has been well held at all of her starts to date but down in the weights could be a good chance at odds. No 11 Good Intent comes off well at the weights with a claim from apprentice J Taylor and after a very good last start third when racing second up from a spell, the Hussonet filly could get into the money. No 7 Tourmalet comes into the race off two consecutive third placed efforts and the Paul Perry-trained Anabaa gelding could sneak into the places.
Race 7: Scone Equine Hospital (1100m)
The final event of the day is a Benchmark 65 Handicap over 1100m and is a nice race to round out a day’s racing at Scone. Going with No 2 I’m Mary Too from the Kris Lees stable as the Flying Spur mare has raced against better class runners than this and has proved competitive and is the one to beat here, and the best bet of the day. No 6 Weepu is a Fubu gelding that is often around the money but just finds it hard to crack it for a prize money collect! No 1 Rhondonite is a nine-year-old Zabeel gelding who has been racing in good form and could get into the money here, while No 8 Hussonet Rose should be at good each way odds and racing second up should be a player in the first four.
Best Bet Of The Day: Race 7, No 2. I’m Mary Too 5yo m. (Flying Spur x Desert End, by End Sweep), trained by Kris Lees.
