I thought R1 #6 Married To The Mob looked an excellent each way chance tomorrow at Scone. First start was 2nd to a very good Qld horse Rothfire. Then ran 7th in a MM lead up race - winner came 4th in the MM. 2 trials leading into this. Maiden class and might be better than that.
R3 #1 Live And Free went to the line very nicely on debut in Australia. It's only got 4 above the limit and some of those down the board you can put a line straight through. #2 Secretly Awesome is equal fave and is a big threat.
R4 #10 The Bopper picks himself on the back of a track record on debut at Tamworth. 3rd horse came out and won an open 2YO at Taree on Monday. $1.70 - parlay value only.
Race 5 I'm torn between #2 Van Giz who was a bit stiff after being wide at Gosford (last place in the world you want to be wide) last start, and #5 Sedona who will like the drop back to 1100m and the class seems a little less - winner of that race last start Reformist was placed in the Ming Dynasty. Barrier tips me toward #2.
In the Cup, I thought any number of horses had a chance.
Will go for Pete Snowden to get a home town win with #5 Military Zone. Deserved to win last start when wide most of the way and that seems to be the form race for this. Have had a place bet on #9 Black On Gold as well but this is a tough race.
In the last going for the home town Messara horse first up #11 Deepwood Vale. Big lumping Redoute's Choice horse who has won 2 from 4 plus a 3rd. It is a half brother to triple stakes winner Religify. 3 trials leading into this and I like the big track and the 1300m first up. Visualizing him coming down the outside with a bit of space.
Wily's tip #2 Darleb the definite danger, and don't leave #1 Mayaaseh out of the chances. Little bit disappointing the two runs this campaign but better than that.
