Race 2. (14:00) The Big Screen Company Maiden (1000m)

#8 – Bella Sorellina @ $3.60 – Bet @ PlayUp

Bella Sorellina finished fourth on debut last year before being sent for an immediate spell.

The Maher/Eustace-trained three-year-old was only a length behind the winner and the betting support for Monday’s race is a good sign.

She also gets the inside draw, so we’re expecting a nice effort.

Race 4. (15:00) Asset Painting Services BM58 (1200m)

#1 – Nerone @ $3 – Bet @ PlayUp

Nerone was only 2.7 lengths behind the winner at Sandown last start and dropping in grade could have immediate results.

The five-year-old is overdue a win, but he owns three wins and six placings from 20 starts, so he’s never too far away from the prize.

Getting the inside draw should see him right around the mark.

Race 5. (15:30) Quayclean C2 Handicap (2400m)

#1 – Fine Weather @ $2.45 – Bet @ PlayUp

Fine Weather is a classy type at his best and he only narrowly went down at Kilmore last time out.

He missed by a nose after fighting them off bravely in the straight. It came over 2012, so rising in distance to 2400m only strengthens his chances.

The son of Night of Thunder is bred to handle these conditions.

Race 8. (17:00) Bite Local BM58 (1000m)

#2 – No Shame @ $6 – Bet @ PlayUp

No Shame has shown good fresh up efforts in the past and she has been respected here.

The Richard Laming-trained mare is a four-time winner and she owns three first-up placings, so we’re expecting a forward effort.

She was only a length behind the winner at Mornington last start and this isn’t any harder.


Race 1. (13:00) Pryde’s Easifeed C1 Plate (1600m)

#5 – The Dramatist @ $2.20 – Bet @ PlayUp

The Dramatist broke maiden grades by five lengths last time out and rising in distance holds no fears.

He is a son of Shamus Award, who has had three runs at Scone for a win and two placings, so he’s accustomed to the track.

Most of the early money has come his way and that’s a good sign.

Race 3. (14:10) Buy Better at Inglis Maiden (900m)

#10 – Lady Rupert @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp

Lady Rupert did well to run third on debut at Scone as a $10 chance and we’re not surprised at the shorter odds.

The three-year-old filly showed a good turn-of-foot to run within 1.4 lengths of the winner and she’ll only improve with time.

Barrier four is ideal and punters get each-way value.

Race 5. (15:25) Arrowfield Maiden (1100m)

#2 – Fiendish @ $2.45 – Bet @ PlayUp

Fiendish opened at $3.10 and there has been a steady flow of money come for him throughout the week.

The four-year-old son of Panzer Division has had four starts for four placings, including a close finish at Muswellbrook last start.

His recent trial placing at Scone bodes well and punters should be confident.

Race 7. (16:40) Millicent Davies C1 Handicap (1100m)

#7 – Oakfield Mahogany @ $2.60 – Bet @ PlayUp

Oakfield Mahogany was too good for them on debut when scoring by a half-length at Scone, which bodes well.

The three-year-old gelding has also had three trials for three wins, so he knows how to get the job done.

His opening odds of $3.40 have firmed and he could start around $2.
