Amovatio

Running as Race 7 at 4:05pm (AEST), the first two emergencies in the $200,000 Listed Emirates Park Scone Cup (1600m) field – #17 Himalaya Dream and #18 Kaypers – get a run for the scratched Bewhatyouwannabe (4) and Great Esteem (18).

That gives the full 16 runners and leading the latest Scone Cup betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $4.60 to score a third consecutive win is High Midnight from the Sydney stables of James Cummings.

His two lead-up runs have been successful starts at Rosehill Gardens and he gets the chance to thrive again dropping notably in the weights for his Scone Cup bid.

The other best fancied in the Scone Cup odds are the 60kg top weight Mighty Lucky ($6), Chris Waller’s Hawkesbury Gold Cup winner Amovatio ($6.50) and Italian import Goldstream ($6.50).

So will one of the top fancies salute for the Scone Cup punters or is there value tipping an upset from the likes of the defending champion Tales Of Grimm ($8) or the Hawkesbury Gold Cup third placed mare Casino Dancer ($10)?

Our 2016 Scone Cup Trifecta Tip is #2 Amovatio from #7 Tales Of Grimm and #1 Mighty Lucky

1st

#1 Amovatio ($6.50)

Going for Waller to score back-to-back Scone Cup wins with his in-form five-year-old Amovatio this year who comes off a good half-length win in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) over the same distance. He’s a gun over the mile (9-4-1-1) and overcame barrier 15 of 16 for his last start victory. Drawn far better in gate two for this with apprentice Rory Hutchings retaining the ride, but does rise from 56.5kg to 59.5kg. If he handles the weights he’ll be hard to beat again.

2nd

#7 Tales Of Grimm ($8)

Sticking with an all-Waller Scone Cup quinella and have last year’s winner to finish second 12 months on in the same race. Kerrin McEvoy has the ride this season on the rising eight-year-old who was seventh in the Hawkesbury Cup last start, but beaten only four lengths and tipped to improve at a track he’s proven at here meeting Amovatio better in the weights this time. Also drawn nicely in barrier 10, into eight, and can perform again.

3rd

#1 Mighty Lucky ($6)

Fred Cowell’s ultra-consistent six-year-old is carrying 60kg and so is giving the weight away to plenty of nice types, but has too good a form to rule out even under those kilos. Winner of the Group 3 Summer Cup (1600m) in December he comes off the Hawkesbury Cup second when he had 1.5kg more than the winner, but in the rematch he’s only 0.5kg worse than Amovatio.
