A massive prize pool of $500,000 has attracted a full 15-horse field plus five emergencies to the 2013 Inglis Guineas (1400m) at Scone on Saturday.
It may not contain any out-and-out top liners but the field features plenty of quality including Gerald Ryan’s speedy filly Flying Snitzel.
The daughter of Snitzel will need to bounce back from two recent failures in Sydney but three starts back defeated Norzita in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes.
Flying Snitzel has drawn barrier two for the lucrative three-year-old sprint, one barrier inside Anthony Cummings’ exciting filly Missy Cummings.
The daughter of Magnus has been a shining light since debuting in March, notching up three straight wins including the Listed Carr Stakes on April 27.
Some of the better known horses in the race include Bart Cummings’ Lunar Rise, Gai Waterhouse-trained colt Ashokan and Golden Rose fourth placegetter Ninth Legion.
Facing a rise in class but in sensational form is Taree-based gelding Single Spirit.
The son of Not A Single Doubt is unbeaten from three starts this preparation and was most recently seen dusting his rivals by 2 1/2 lengths in a Class 3 race at Kempsey.
Also coming off a big last-start win is Grahame Begg-trained gelding Wine ‘n’ Dine who blitzed his competition by 3 1/2 lengths at Kembla Grange on April 30.
Other Inglis Guineas runners include Gosford Guineas third Taxmeifyoucan and Mick Price’s last-start runner-up Hirad.
The Inglis Guineas forms part of a huge two-day carnival in Scone that begins on Friday with the Scone Cup.
