2016 Dark Jewel Classic Betting Tips & Odds

The action of the two-day Scone Cup Carnival continues on Saturday headlined by the Dark Jewel Classic 2016, betting tips and odds for the fillies-and-mares’ feature detailed below.

Set to run as Scone Race 7 at 3:50pm (AEST), this season’s $200,000 Group 3 Godolphin Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) features a full field of 16 starters with first emergency Lucky News (11) getting a run for the scratched Berry Delicious (1).

Leading the latest Dark Jewel Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au in an open market is Artistry at $6 for the win despite a wide double-digit draw.

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Shamardal four-year-old won the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1300m) three back before a Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) run crossing eighth to star mare Azkadellia.

She comes out of the traditional Dark Jewel Classic lead-up, the Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown (1300m) from April 30 when 3.5 lengths away fifth, a run she’s tipped to improve on getting back up to 1400m.

The others highest up the Dark Jewel Classic betting markets this autumn are the Kris Lees-trained Danish Twist ($6) shooting for three straight wins, the Joe Pride-trained Belle Of The Turf Stakes winner at Gosford in January Ammirata ($7.50), Gerald Ryan’s six-year-old market mover Peace Force ($8) who comes off a Hawkesbury Crown fourth and Kim Waugh’s consistent Written Tycoon four-year-old Hetty Heights ($8).

So will the best in betting be first past the post in the Dark Jewel Classic on Saturday or is there an upset pending from the likes of Lees’ other top hope Onemorezeta ($10), recent Wagga Town Plate winner Just A Blur ($13) or Hawkesbury Crown third placegetter Press Report ($13)?


#11 Hetty Heights ($8)

The lead-up form of Hetty Heights is good, with three wins from four starts this time in. The Wyong-trained four-year-old is two-from-four over the distance and carried 59kg to victory over 1350m at Rosehill last time out. She’s up in class, but drops to 54kg on Saturday in a nice bit of weight relief and is drawn to get a great run from barrier six on the minimum.


#6 Ammirata ($7.50)

Joe Pride’s Nadeem four-year-old needs a touch of luck from her wider alley here, but has winning form over a mile in Group 3 class from the summer. Her Hawkesbury Crown run for seventh with 58kg was okay, but she’ll be much better with four kilos less in this and has definite claims.


#13 In A Wink ($17)

Great price on offer for Greg Bennett’s locally-trained Ready As four-year-old who has winning form at the track and comes off placings at Warwick Farm and Tamworth. Her latest run was a close third in the Tamworth Cup over this distance (5-1-0-3) when beaten only a length carrying 57.5kg. She’ll appreciate the return to Scone and the drop back to 54kg with Greg Ryan taking over in the saddle.

Now is the perfect time to discover the benefits of betting online with Ladbrokes.com.au who will match the first deposit of new players outside of NSW dollar for dollar up to $500 with use of the code BETBONUS!
