Scone Race 5: Yarraman Park Luskin Star Stakes 1300m

15/05/2015: Mighty Lucky although coming off an awkward break has the credentials to tip out the favourite Artlee in this Listed affair. Mighty Lucky is a recent trial winner and generally races well fresh. This gelding has good enough form in stronger company in the past than what he meets here and is a winner at his only run this track and distance. Looks a great each way bet at double figure odds. Artlee has won 5 from 8 career starts and bolted in on heavy track at Randwick last time out, won his only start here over this distance and if can handle stronger field in this is an undeniable chance. Haussmann has to overcome a horror draw but does race well fresh and has proven himself at this level in the past. Has good record this distance and with any luck in the run can figure in the finish. Oxford Poet is a winner his only run this distance and has been in good recent form, will race forward and expected to be in the thick of things for a long way. Both Brettan and Slots rate place chances.

PACE COMMENTS Looks to be enough top end speed in this with the fancied Oxford Poet driving across from gate 12 to find the fence, but is likely to be worked early by Brettan who will possibly look to retain the lead from an inside gate. Artlee has drawn gate 1 but is expected to drift back behind the leading group and settle in a mid- field position. Ryker and Slots should get good passages just off the speed. Overall pace assessment is genuine.
