Speediness 2013 Scone Cup Horse to Beat – Bennett

Rival trainer Greg Bennett may be saddling up Kaypers in this afternoon’s Scone Cup 2013 after they snuck into the field as the first emergency but it is the better fancied Speediness who he is tipping as the one to beat.

A $51 outsider in the betting for the $200,000 Listed Emirates Park Scone Cup (1600m) Bennett’s local Cape Cross five-year-old Kaypers may be in the starting line-up now but their chances of winning are still pretty slim.

The gelding hasn’t won a race since August last year although they have been competitive in a number of longer distanced Sydney races over the past year including their second in the Listed Parramatta Cup (2000m) in the wet at Rosehill back in early March.

Doing their best racing over 1800m or further the mile looks a little short for them, Kaypers last seen running fifth to Julienas in the Listed NE Manion Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on March 30.

“This is a huge test for him but he has got a shot at the race and it would be a huge thrill to win our home-town cup,” Bennett said.

“He has freshened up very well. He will get back in the field but with luck he will really be finishing the race off hard.”

While remaining optimistic with his own horse, Bennett said he would also be happy to take the credit for a win by the Colin Scott-trained Speediness.

The Testa Rossa gelding enjoyed a win in the Listed Pink Ribbon Cup (1400m) at Caulfield two back and comes off a good third behind Scone Cup favourite Mouro ($5.50) and Doomben Cup runner Beaten Up in the Listed Rowley Mile (1600m) at Hawkesbury on May 4.

Drawn in gate 10, now into nine with the scratchings, the Victorian-based Speediness is rated a $10 chance in the Scone Cup betting markets and has a connection with Bennett having been stabled at his Scone property recently.

“Colin Scott has left Speediness at my stables and I can say this horse looks a million bucks,” Bennett said.

“Colin got here on Monday and couldn’t be happier with his horse. I reckon he will be hard to beat in the cup.

“If he wins, I will take any accolades that come our way because the horse was stabled at our place here at Scone.

“I can always say Speediness came out of our stable when he went on to win the Scone Cup, and that is a fact!”
