Scone Race 6: Darley Dark Jewel Classic 1400m

15/05/2015: Diademe is a Group 1 winner in N.Z. who will appreciate the predicted return to firmer ground in this. To be ridden by a red hot Blake Shinn Diademe should settle into a good trailing position just off the pace. Diademe is a dual winner this distance and should relish the drop in grade. If she can produce her form from back home looks a safe each way bet. Strong resistance will be on offer however from quality mare Rose Of Choice who has strong form over this distance and equally good form whilst fresh. This mare has the benefit of 3 recent trials and looks set for a big 1st up run. Fine Bubbles is unbeaten both runs this track and comes off a strong Group 2 runner up placing behind Avoid Lightning. She's well drawn and is certainly in the mix on best form. Calming Influence has good form this distance and is another who could shake the life out of this on best form. Top run last time when 3rd behind Solicit in Group 3 event. Both Mamwaazel and Vergara have some sort of place chances.

PACE COMMENTS Calming Influence is favoured in early markets and should cross from gate 11 and take up the front running role. Diademe and Vergara will look to slot in just behind the leader. Rose Of Choice is also well thought of and is expected to settle some where around the mid-field mark. Fine Bubbles although drawn well will most likely drift rearward and look to close out late. Should be enough speed up front to ensure a genuine overall tempo.
