Chris Nelson’s Scone Best Bets

RACE 4 No.4 Lady Harlem

Only the single start to date for this filly beating all bar the winner at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day last year. She raced wide without any cover doing a good job to fight on right to the line. Interestingly the O’Shea yard tipped her straight out and off a recent strong finishing barrier trial win she reappears on Saturday. Obviously market leads all important however I’m expecting her to run well.

RACE 6 No.13 I Am Me

I Am Invincible filly from the Maher/Eustace yard who just keeps on raising the bar and I can see her doing just that again on Saturday. She appears to have that rare ability to show good speed at the start and finish of her races although tackling another level again this time her three victories this prep have all been by decisive margins suggesting she’s well up to the task.

RACE 8 No.16 Le Gai Soleil

Another from the John O’Shea yard who resumes from a 70 day break on Saturday. She’s an absolute gun fresh having won 4 of her 5 attempts with the latest being last prep at Randwick charging down the outside from well back to round up and race clear of her rivals. Couple of recent barrier trials will have her ready for Saturday’s return.
