Scott Confident of Form Reversal For Speediness in George Ryder

Yet to hit peak form in two of three disappointing starts this preparation, trainer Colin Scott is confident talented six-year-old Speediness can make the most of less-than-ideal conditions at Rosehill Gardens this weekend and return to the winner’s circle in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Unable to figure at all when seventh in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) last time out on March 15th, Scott told AAP the stable has already put the forgettable result in the past and plans to right all wrongs from that day this weekend.

“We’ve decided to just put last start behind us” Scott said on Friday.

“He over-raced badly and Damien (Oliver) said he made a bit of a noise so we’re of the theory he maybe choked down.”

Having produced several good pieces of work with the use of a tongue tie over the past two weeks, Scott confirmed Speediness has more than turned around his recent luckless run of form.

“He’s had a couple of really solid hit-outs this week with the tongue tie and he hasn’t missed a beat” Scott said.

“He’s come right on fitness-wise.”

Producing a particularly consistent 2013 spring preparation which ended with a strong run for third in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) on November 9th, Speediness has substantially dropped in support since his last start in the Canterbury Stakes and is currently given little chance in betting markets of success this weekend; offered at particularly long odds of $21.

Having appeared as a late nomination as a result of the poor weather surrounding the track all week, wet track specialist Red Tracer has firmed in to sit as clear $3 favourite for success in the 2014 George Ryder Stakes, ahead of talented miler Boban and Sacred Falls; sharing the second line of betting at $7 odds and Eurozone ($10). is currently offering the best odds on all Rosehill Gardens races this weekend including the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes!
