Scone Tips – March 16
Race 1 – 1:55PM JOIN NSW RACEHORSE OWNERS ASSOC. BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
The John Ramsey-trained LOVE ME QUIETLY has really found form with two wins in a row including a last start victory over 1600m where she powered home from the rear to score convincingly. Two starts back she won in record time at Scone over 1450m, so getting back to her home track should suit. Last start on a Heavy 8 at Dubbo, the daughter of Trusting clocked her final 600m in 35.66 and her final 200m in 12.04. None of Monday’s rivals have gone quicker in their final 200m over a similar trip on Good to Soft ground, so it’s hard to see them matching her late speed here. With five runs under her belt she’s at peak fitness, and with her confidence high, she’s the one to beat.
Race 6 – 5:05PM DARLEY SCONE CUP CARNIVAL 15 & 16 MAY-TICKETS ON SALE BM58 HCP (1100M)
Quite an open race with the favourite, TORO TORO, being a $3.60 chance, but the Time For War gelding does look hard to beat. He defeated Free Rider when first-up at this track and distance last campaign, and Free Rider went on to win his next two in a row. Toro Toro led all the way in an 880m trial at Scone on March 3, and that work was very similar to his trial prior to his last start win. A few leading hopes have drawn wide and may have to use some petrol early or risk getting caught wide, while Toro Toro is in the top three for tactical speed and should be leading from barrier 6. The second favourite, Solvency, looms as a danger, and although she has a win to her name, she technically finished 2nd to a winner that was disqualified for the jockey weighting in light. War Cat ($7) has been gelding following a debut victory, and he could be the big improver. Escebee ($20) and Forever Jude ($34) are nice chances at big odds.
