Tough Field as Scenic Shot Chases Win Number 3 – Doomben Cup 2012

Experienced Daniel Morton-trained gelding is chasing a third title in the feature Queensland stayer’s event when he lines up in the Group 1 2012 Doomben Cup (2000m) this weekend.

Scenic Shot

Scenic Shot is chasing a third Doomben Cup title this Saturday

The nine-year-old has not experienced success since taking last year’s Doomben Cup but after a disappointing beginning to 2012 has shown promise with third and fifth-place efforts in his two most recent starts.

After riding the son of Scenic to victory in the $500,000 event last year, jockey Shane Scriven will again be in the saddle on Saturday and is confident the veteran stayer is heading into this year’s race in similar condition.

“I know him pretty well now and everything has been the same as before leading into the race,” Scriven said.

“I can’t fault him in any way…he loves 2000 metres and there is a sense of deja vu with him.”

Scenic Shot has raced in an incredible 71 starts for 17 victories, is a three-time Group 1 winner and has collected more than $3 million in prize money.

To add to his 2009 and 2011 Doomben Cup victories this weekend he will have to overcome a quality field that includes star French import Manighar.

Scriven admitted he was facing a tougher field than last year when he won by a head in front of My Kingdom Of Fire and Glass Harmonium.

“It certainly wasn’t music to my ears when I heard Manighar was coming for the race,” Scriven said.

“There are one or two more quality horses there this year.”

Trained by Peter Moody, Manighar has been in sensational form in 2012, scoring a rare Group 1 treble in the Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and The BMW before running second to More Joyous in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Last year’s Queensland Derby runner-up Shez Sinsational returns for this year’s winter carnival and heads into the race in impressive form.

Earlier this year the talented mare won the Auckland Cup and is chasing a fourth consecutive victory after impressing last start when winning the Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast.

Also included in nominations are in-form four-year-old Fibrillation, former Doncaster winner Triple Honour and German import Mawingo.
