Scone racing takes place on Friday, May 17, with an nine-race program for the meeting on Scone Cup Day.

We have the best bets picked out from across day with value selections for Scone Racecourse.

Race 4: No. 6 Escutcheon

Broke through for his maiden win at Kembla Grange at start number two back in October.

The four-year-old gelding only won by a small margin on that occasion but they beat home the third horse by a further three lengths.

He’s been in the stable for a while and has had three trials leading into this first up assignment so should be fit enough.

Drawn well in barrier four and represents good each way value.

Race 6: No. 2 Code In Time

Anabel Neasham saddles up this progressive and lightly raced three-year-old gelding for his sixth start.

The son of Encryption has finished in the top two in four of his five starts which includes two wins during this campaign.

He won his maiden by over three lengths and then class two, both at Canberra before a narrow loss at Kembla Grange.

Looks well placed in this event and is a nice each way price.

Race 7: No. 2 Gago

Closed out his last campaign breaking his maiden at Hawkesbury over 1500m beating home a handy one in Princess Rayaa.

He then changed trainer from Chris Waller to Nathan Doyle for this campaign and won a class one at Wyong second up before stepping up in distance.

Back to 1300m will suit and at double figure odds, he’s worth a small each-way play.

Race 8: No. 14 Sibaaq

Was placed in three of his last four starts last campaign and was beaten just half a length at Listed level first up this time in.

The six-year-old gelding has a good record second up and has placed in six of eight starts on soft or heavy which he likely gets at Scone today.

The 1600m is perfect for him and he should be able to sit just off the speed and pounce late.
