Scone Cup 2017 Tips & Odds Update

This afternoon the 2017 Scone Cup takes place in the Hunter Region of NSW and our insider betting tips and exotic selections on the mile showdown are detailed below.

Running as Scone Race 7 at 3:57pm (AEST) the starting line-up for the $200,000 Listed Darley Scone Cup (1600m) is down to 15 runners after a number of scratched horses and the second emergency Supply And Demand is now in the mix for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.

The Waterhouse & Bott training duo also prepare this year’s one-time favourite in Scone Cup betting Fabrizio who has eased out from $4 to $5 for the win.

The last start Hawkesbury Cup winner is in excellent form, but has drifted in the markets now the second favourite going up to Friday’s 59kg top weight.

The horse that ran second in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Cup (1600m) beaten under a length in the lead-up a fortnight back, Moher, is now the top fancy at Scone Cup odds of $4.8.

The Darren Beadman-trained Lonhro four-year-old has Kerrin McEvoy retaining the ride and only rises a kilo to 54kg with a nice barrier eight starting gate.

So will the top two in betting produce the same quinella as the Hawkesbury Cup or is there an upset Scone Cup result pending from the likes of proven miler Supply And Demand ($14 into $8) or Royal Tudor ($9.50) out to frank the Randwick form of the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) from mid-April?


#6 Pajaro ($11)

Going an upset and tipping the reigning Scone Cup winner Pajaro to get the job done again. Last year the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained galloper was well back in the Hawkesbury Cup (14th) before winning this with 54kg as a $21 roughie. He’s much safer in the markets this year, but still excellent value, only going up slightly in the weights to 55.5kg. Drawn better and the lead-up in the same race was brave (3.5 lengths away eighth). Plenty suggest he can go back-to-back.


#9 Moher ($4.80)

Money is coming for the Hawkesbury Cup runner-up who now carries the punters’ hopes on his shoulders in the Scone Cup to turn the tables on his last start conqueror. Certainly meets Fabrizio better in the weights here and should be nearing his peak third-up. Improving each run and he is ready for a big run with McEvoy aboard from a good barrier.


#18 Supply And Demand ($8)

The longer-priced of the two Tulloch Lodge hopefuls, this Sebring four-year-old has been smashed by the punters since being assured of a start. He comes off a close third over 1400m in the wet at Randwick when carting 60kg and being beaten just a half-length. He’ll eat-up the extra 200m this afternoon, has winning mile form already on the record when saluting at Warwick Farm in March by nearly three lengths and will by flying dropping right back to the 53kg minimum for this class rise.
