Angland Keen to Impress with Scissor Kick in 2015 Eskimo Prince Stakes

Tye Angland will get a good understanding of his potential autumn prospects on Saturday when he partners two promising horses at Rosehill Gardens.

The 25-year-old jockey will ride Scissor Kick in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) for Paul Messara and Odyssey Moon in the Inglis Classic (1200m) for Rodney Northam.

After returning to Australian racing last year after a stint in Hong Kong, Angland has re-established himself near the top of the jockey ranks. He is confident both horses are quality rides with Group One potential and is keen to help them reach their full potential in the autumn.

“They are two horses that have shown that they are up to being very competitive in bigger races and we are going to hear a lot more about them,” Angland told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“They are two of the horses going into the autumn I know that I’m on and that they have group 1 potential.”

Angland already has plenty of experience with Scissor Kick, partnering the three-year-old colt in four of his six starts during the spring.

The pair won both the Listed Rosebud (1200m) and Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) before finishing runner-up in both the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m).

Scissor Kick had a tough run in the Golden Rose Stakes but managed to work his way to the front at the 200 metre mark before missing out on victory to Hallowed Crown by a head.

Craig Williams took over the reins when the colt travelled to Melbourne for the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m), however he failed to impress in ninth place.

The fact that Angland couldn’t bring Scissor Kick home to victory in the Golden Rose Stakes and Stan Fox Stakes still pains the jockey but he’s confident he can rectify it during the autumn. He’ll get his chance on March 7 in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

“He is up with the best three-year-olds around and I expect him to get back to that group 1 level,” Angland said.

“He had the toughest run in the Golden Rose and it took a very good one to beat him, coming with the final shot at him after he was wide and did all the work.

“He then had no luck when Shooting To Win beat him [in the Stan Fox Stakes] and was over the top when he got to Melbourne.

“His form stands up around all the good three-year-olds and I’m confident that he has come back a lot stronger.”

Paul Messara has a three-race autumn program planned for Scissor Kick that will begin with the 2015 Eskimo Prince Stakes before the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) on February 21 and finish with the 2015 Randwick Guineas.
