Speediness Ready for 2012 Bobbie Lewis Quality

Lightly-raced five-year-old Speediness is in good order to begin his spring campaign in Saturday’s Group 3 2012 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) at Flemington.

After a mixed autumn campaign that was highlighted by a runner-up finish in the Doncaster Prelude, Speediness returned with a promising trial late last month where he beat home recent winner Shanghai Warrior over 990 metres.

Trainer Colin Scott is confident he can produce a good first-up performance following reports from star jockey Craig Williams after the trial.

“He bounced and showed good speed and led, Shanghai Warrior went up to him like he was going to go straight past him and Craig (Williams) said to me he let a couple of inches of rain slip through his fingers and he picked up again,” Scott said.

The high profile rider will be on board on Saturday when Speediness jumps from barrier 15 and Scott said he would leave race tactics up to Williams.

An exact spring plan has not been outlined for the son of Testa Rossa but it is likely he will get a chance to chase top-level glory.

A winner of four of 14 starts, the five-year-old got his first taste of Group 1 racing in the autumn where he finished seventh in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

But Scott takes confidence out the form of those around him with Doncaster Prelude winner Fast Clip going on to finish fifth in the Doncaster Mile and Prelude fourth Happy Trails impressing at Group level so far this spring.

“His form stacks up to say he can win a group one,” Scott said.

Speediness is currently rated a $13.00 chance to win the Bobbie Lewis with Mark Kavangh-trained We’re Gonna Rock ($5.50) and Mosheen ($6.00) the current favourites.
