2015 Parramatta Cup Then Paddock for Scream Machine

Despite having been up since the start of November Jason Coyle’s stable stalwart Scream Machine is still working well enough to have one final run this campaign in the Parramatta Cup 2015 Saturday week before being turned out for a well-earned spell.

The Excites gelding is a 42-start veteran and has raced seven times since November 1 last year with no longer than 28 days off.

“He’s had six or seven runs but has been in the stable for a long time,” Coyle told Sky Sports Radio’s Racing HQ on Thursday morning.

“I can’t fault the horse at home though.

“He looks healthy in the coat and he’s working terrific.”

He hasn’t won a race since June last year however when defeating the Chris Waller-trained import Bagman in the Natski Handicap (1500m) at Rosehill.

The six-year-old has been competitive in some good races over the summer however including a credible fifth to Ninth Legion after missing the kick by two lengths in the Listed Carrington Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on January 24.

His latest start though left a bit to be desired when he got tired out wide after jumping from barrier 12 of 13, failing to make up enough ground to challenge eventually crossing seven lengths away 11th to Burbero in an open handicap over 1500m last Saturday.

Coyle though is confident he can be competitive in one final run this prep, with plans to round out the horse’s campaign in the $100,000 Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) at Rosehill Gardens on February 21.

“He’ll have one more start in a 1900m Listed race Saturday week,” Coyle said.

“The race looks terrific form him and he’s been doing really well at home.”

While Scream Machine has winning form up to 2000m, he hasn’t stepped out over further than a mile since December of 2013 when sixth behind I’m Imposing in the Group 3 Summer Cup (2000m).

“It’s his first time over 1900 (metres) for a while so it will be interesting to see exactly where he’s at,” Coyle said.

“Then I expect he’ll go straight to the paddock.”

Coyle also has an exciting prospect resuming this weekend with his Charge Forward filly Slightly Sweet taking on a host of Group 1 winners in the $175,000 Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) at Randwick Racecourse.

In the Light Fingers she will face the likes of Golden Slipper winner Mossfun, ATC Sires Produce Stakes champ Peggy Jean, Thousand Guineas victor last start Amicus and Flight Stakes winner First Seal who leads the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for the three-year-old fillies’ showdown.
