2014 Scone Guineas Betting Led by Chautauqua

Last start Hawkesbury Guineas winner Chautauqua is in line for another NSW country Guineas win this Saturday when they jump favourite in the Scone Guineas 2014.

The richest race on the program at day two of the Scone Cup Carnival, this year’s $400,000 Inglis 3YO Scone Guineas (1400m) features a capacity field where four of the young hopefuls are under double figures to win.

Heading the field and markets at a quote of $2.80 is the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes co-trained Encosta De Lago grey Chautauqua.

Drawn in gate 10, possibly into 9 with the emergencies out, the gelding will be ridden by Dwayne Dunn as they shoot for back-to-back wins.

Last time out on May 3 they improved on a Royal Sovereign Stakes seventh to win the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) relishing a run against their own kind over the distance that they get again on Saturday.

The other single figure fancies following Chautauqua are then:

  • #13 Cosmic Endeavour ($3.60) – Talented Northern Meteor filly, one of four in the race for Gai Waterhouse, in top form with three top three runs leading up to this including their Group 2 Sapphire Stakes victory at Randwick two back, graduate from the Hawkesbury Crown when third to Aerobatics over 1300m so should handle the distance increase here despite their horror barrier (15)
  • #3 Under The Lourve ($8) – Perfect gate four draw for this in-form galloper from the Victorian stables of Robert Smerdon who goes for a hat trick following two on the trot, the Excellent Art colt won at Moonee Valley in March and then returned at Caulfield on May 3 for another win, yet to race over further than 1200m so need to handle that and the NSW’s way of going
  • #2 Woodbine ($9) – Another Waterhouse-trained hope, this one is actually the trainer’s tip after the Hussonet colt ran at Group 1 level last time out (7th of 8th in the All Aged), that was a tough assignment and this is easier, plus they have plenty of form over the 1400m so should be one of the best over the distance

The only others under $20 in the markets are then the Anthony Cummings-trained Alpha Beat ($11) coming off a Listed Adelaide Guineas (1600m) victory from a fortnight ago, Waterhouse’s Redoute’s Choice colt Liberty’s Choice ($18) and Jessy Belle ($18).

At $18 Jessy Belle represents great value, the Luke Oliver-trained Rock Of Gibraltar filly coming over from Melbourne on the back of two December wins and two seconds this time in including over 1440m at Caulfield on May 3 behind Griante.
