Sydney Then 2014 Caulfield Guineas for Scissor Kick

Scone trainer Paul Messara on Tuesday confirmed his Caulfield Guineas 2014 hopeful Scissor Kick would stay in Sydney this weekend over an early trip to Melbourne for his latest run.

The Redoute’s Choice colt is a dual nominee across two states this weekend having been entered for both the $200,000 Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night as well as the $200,000 Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens.

The Melbourne race has since been ruled out with the in-form three-year-old to shoot for fourth win at career start number six in the 2014 Stan Fox Stakes.

“He will definitely be running here in Sydney,” Messara told TVN this morning.

There are only eight entries for the set weights clash this year, Scissor Kick the sure-to-be favourite in the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au based on his exciting lead-up form.

After breaking his maiden status with a thee length effort first-up at Canterbury in July, Scissor Kick went to black type class on August 9 to beat home Better Land in the Listed The Rosebuck (1200m) at Randwick.

He returned to the track and handled another rise in class a fortnight later when narrowly holding off subsequent Ming Dynasty Quality winner Panzer Division in the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m).

Last start Messara stepped Scissor Kick up to elite level for a shot at the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) where he was far from disgraced running a long neck away second behind the undefeated James & Bart Cummings-trained Hallowed Crown after jumping from a wide barrier 12 (of 15) draw.

Messara is pleased with how Scissor Kick came through the Golden Rose a fortnight ago, the horse showing he was ready for another run after a pleasing Tuesday morning gallop in Sydney.

“He came through super, and he worked super here this morning,” he said.

“I’m sure if he had drawn a barrier in the Golden Rose he’d have won.”

Now the trainer will use Saturday’s Stan Fox as a stepping stone to another possible Group 1 run with Messara hoping to start Scissor Kick in the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11.

“We’ll most probably head to Melbourne for the (Caulfield) Guineas,” he said.

Scissor Kick was one of the top fancies in futures Caulfield Guineas betting at Ladbrokes.com.au this morning paying $10 in markets led by the Mark Kavanagh-trained Chivalry ($4.60) with second declarations for the race closing at midday.
