Mr Tipsy Outside 2012 Scone Cup Chance

Experienced gelding Mr Tipsy will be racing for the first time in 2012 when he lines up in a quality field in the Listed $180,000 2012 Scone Cup (1600m) on Friday.

The Montjeu seven-year-old has not raced since the Summer Cup on Boxing Day and trainer Bjorn Baker will be hoping he can produce the sort of first-up effort he did last preparation when winning the Listed Karaka Classic in New Zealand.

Baker said he has a soft spot for the New Zealand-bred horse but admits it will be a difficult ask to win first-up against an impressive line up.

“He’s a lovely horse, one of my old favourites and I’d love him to go well,” Baker said.

“Fresh up in this is a big ask but it was the only race we could kick him off in.”

Mr Tipsy boasts a reasonable career record, having recorded nine wins from 34 starts and he has placed on another nine occasions.

He has won twice at Listed level but faces one of the toughest tests of his career this Saturday when coming up against the likes of Lightinthenite and Star Of Octagonal.

Fresh off a first-up win at Randwick, the highly promising Lightinthenite will carry the minimum weight of 54.5kg and with boom young jockey James McDonald is poised to score his first victory at Listed level.

The John O’Shea-trained four-year-old has had a tremendous start to his career, recording five wins from just nine career starts.

Top weight (58kg) Star Of Octagonal will be out to continue his stellar 2012 form and is fresh off a victory ahead of Western Symbol in the Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury earlier this month.

Other horses set to line up in the Scone Cup include Peter Snowden-trained Raspberries and Divorces and 2011 South Australian Derby winner Shadows In The Sun.

The betting market will open shortly on the Scone feature race and the best odds can be found at bookmaker.com.au.
