Australian Racing: Waterworld seeking Scone success

New South Wales is set to play host to both meetings on Monday with Scone and Queanbeyan both due to race.

Exonumia for Scone success

The penultimate race on the Scone card is an interesting 1400m Class 3 handicap contest.

A good 4 track is expected, with the unexposed Point Basse expected to start favourite, having won two of his three starts at this venue.

The colt’s sole defeat came when losing out narrowly in finishing runner-up in a 1300m Benchmark 58 handicap on a soft 6 surface here in August.

The son of I Am Invincible put that defeat behind him however, when returning to winning ways with a two-and-a-half-length triumph over the same course and distance the following month.

The switch to a good 4 track appeared to be no issue for Brett Cavanough’s colt on that occasion and similar going is expected here. 

Mitchell Bell, on board last time out, is again in the saddle for the colt’s first attempt at this distance and, while he remains open to improvement, EXONUMIA is preferred here.

Trained by Cody Morgan, the gelding has shown improvement with racing this spell, with the pick having placed on his two most recent starts.

The second of those efforts saw him place second when beaten less than a length in a 1200m Class 2 set weights affair at Coonabarabran last month. 

The selection’s jockey here, Braith Nock, was in the saddle when finishing third over the same trip in a similar contest at Tamworth prior, with the pick shaping as if the step up in distance here will suit. 

The son of Frosted has shown a liking for this venue in the past when breaking his maiden over 1300m here in March and he is taken to register his third career win. 

Waterworld to score under Jennings

The fourth race at Scone is an interesting 1100m Class 1 handicap event.

WATERWORLD has shown good form this spell for trainer Nathan Doyle and, with the yard in form, he looks up to recording his second career win.

The four-year-old has placed on three of his four starts this time around, including twice at this venue. 

The second of those placed efforts here came when runner-up in a 900m Benchmark 58 handicap held on a soft 6 track on 27th October.

The pick had raced on going described as good in his three starts prior to that, including when third over 1100m in a Class 2 handicap here.

This looks an easier contest with Koby Jennings taken to steer him to victory from barrier five. 

Threw for Queanbeyan glory

The Ron Leemon-trained Buff In Disguise is expected to prove popular with punters ahead of the fourth race on the Queanbeyan card.

The race in question is a 2000m Benchmark 58 handicap, set to take place on a soft 5 surface.

The six-year-old has shown up well in recent starts placing twice on wet tracks, including when beaten less than two lengths into third in a 2000m Benchmark 58 handicap at Bathurst. 

The gelding has the services of jockey Beany Panya, on board that day once more, however barrier seven isn’t ideal and it can pay to look elsewhere here. 

The winner of that Bathurst contest was THREW, who is taken to confirm form with Buff In Disguise and the second home Kyanite who also re-opposes here. 

Wendy Haynes’ gelding was returning to form stepped up to 2000m for the first time that day, with apprentice Julia Presits, on board that day again in the saddle here.

The son of Dream Ballad performed well when winning by a half-a-length in a 1600m Class 1 set weights event here in September and he can record his second win at this track.
