Power Princess A Narrow Favourite In 2013 Scahill Stakes Odds

The Group 3 Scahill Stakes (1400m) is one of the most interesting races on the action-packed card at Ascot on Saturday with very little separating the leading chances in betting.

Power Princess ($3.70) is currently on top of the Scahill Stakes betting markets and is aiming to become the first horse in history to win the Group 3 event in back-to-back years after she scored an impressive win over Waratah’s Secret and Conservatorium in last year’s race.

The Marwina mare had a brief autumn campaign, winning the Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) at Belmont Park on May 18, and has performed well since returning to the races this preparation; finishing second behind Barakey in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m) and second in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m).

Another seven-year-old is on the second line of betting; with Kerrific, at Scahill Stakes odds of $4, finding plenty of support after producing one of the best performances of his career when fourth in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) a fortnight ago.

Kerrific has been in sensational form in 2013, winning twice at Group 3 level in the Belmont Sprint (1400m) and R.J. Peters Stakes (1500m) and has a strong record over this track and distance.

Also backing up from the Railway Stakes is Gary Kennewell-trained Conservatorium who is currently available at Scahill Stakes odds of $5 after finishing eighth in the Group 1 event at Ascot on November 23.

Conservatorium had no luck in the Railway Stakes, with the six-year-old trapped wide and twisting a plate during the running of the race, and will be suited by the step back to 1400 metres at the same track where he won the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) at Ascot on November 9.

Watermans Bay ($5.50) is chasing his first win at Ascot since he took out the Auto Classic Sprint Handicap (1200m) just over a year ago but has been well-backed after his impressive third place finish behind leading sprinters Buffering and Moment Of Change in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot on Super Saturday.

The Eternity Range gelding has never recorded a race win in a 1400 metre contest but trainer Peter Giadresco believes that the step-up in distance will not be a problem for his star galloper.

The only runner in the Scahill Stakes field that is available at single figure odds is Daniel Morton-trained Luke’s Luck who is available at odds of $9 despite failing to record a race win since he took out the Western Australian Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Ascot in April last year.
