Open 2014 Scone Cup Odds – Four Battle for Top Spot

It is a wide open betting market for the Scone Cup 2014 in New South Wales on Friday with four runners paying either $6 or $6.50 to win the always anticipated showdown.

There is a capacity field of 16 starters plus one emergency for this year’s $200,000 Listed Emirates Park Scone Cup (1600m), a quartet batting for top spot in the Scone Cup odds.

Currently there are two equal $6 favourites with Destiny’s Kiss and Prince Cheri both allocated the 58kg top weight.

Joe Pride’s five-year-old gelding Destiny’s Kiss has barrier eight and Blake Shinn in the saddle as they shoot for back-to-back wins.

The son of Power Of Destiny was last seen winning the Dunkirik Handicap (1600m) at Warwick Farm on Anzac Day, for the bookies rate for this fellow mile feature.

During the summer Destiny’s Kiss also enjoyed plenty of success including three straight Black Type thirds including the Group 3 Summer Cup (2000m) at Randwick on Boxing Day and the Listed Gosford Cup (2100m) in early January.

David Vandyke’s Prince Cheri then will jump from barrier three with Jay Ford booked for the ride on the Lando stallion.

Winner of the Group 3 Kingston Town Classic (2000m) last September the horse is after their first win since with their more recent form leaving a bit to be desired including their eighth in the Group 3 Sky High Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill on March 22.

Going back down to a mile however, and having won a 1200m trial in the wet last month, has the bookies taking no chances.

The two $6.50 second favourites in Scone Cup betting are then the third 58kg top weight Mecir and Wistful drawn at opposite ends of the field with gates 13 and two respectively.

Lonhro five-year-old Mecir represents Team Hawkes after the non-acceptances of their stablemate Leebaz who runs instead in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) in Brisbane on Saturday.

They enjoyed a Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) win two back in March and then went to Caulfield on April 19 for a fourth to Sistine Demon in the Group 3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) where the known firm tracker didn’t appreciate the Slow (6) track.

Wistful meanwhile comes for the Sydney stables of John O’Shea, the four-year-old Tiger Hill mare having finished second in her two most recent runs.

The first was behind Destiny’s Kiss at Warwick Farm and then she went on to cross three quarters of a length off Leebaz in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) on May 3.

These are the only four considered a genuine chance by the bookmakers with no other Scone Cup runners under double figures to win.

The next best in betting at $10 is then last start Randwick winner Kaypers ($10), third to Speediness in the Scone Cup 12 months ago, and then Hawkesbury Cup fourth placegetter The Great Snowman ($13) for Gai Waterhouse.

Others in the mix at juicer odds then include Loaded who ran second to Kaypers over the 1400m last time out, the Chris Waller-trained Said Com and Smart Moochi for Jason Coyle all paying $15 to score an upset Scone Cup result.
