SC Racing – Week 4

Written by Motts on October 22 2020

Round 3 of Supercoach Racing has been run and won and remember to be in the running for the overall prize being offered by SCT to add “@SCT” to the end of your team name. We now have 14 stables in the top 1,000 overall so great work to everyone. If you haven’t joined yet, the league code is 907361.

As always, note that the below is purely based off Supercoach value and Supercoach options and is in no way shape or form my betting preview of the races.

An interesting round for Supercoach Racing with a Friday night lockout making things that even more difficult. Two meetings to cover for the Valley carnival and how I wish we could be heading out to the track this weekend for a few cold ones and a sneaky bet in the betting ring.

MV Friday Night Race 8 – Group 1 Manikato Stakes

Decent field of sprinters assembled here and Trekking ($475,000) off the quick back up from the Everest is the early favourite here. Plenty of good options outside the favourite led by Dirty Work ($275,000) who I think should be one of the most highly selected horses this round. Don’t sleep on Pippie ($375,000) and Brooklyn Hustle ($200,000).

MV Saturday Race 9 – Group 1 Cox Plate

This race has definitely opened up over the last few weeks with Arcadia Queen ($450,000) upsetting the hot favourite Russian Camelot ($375,000) last time out in the Caulfield Stakes. On top of that and RC has gone and drawn the outside gate, this may mean advantage AQ heading into this race. I’ll be sticking with RC in my stable. Outside of these two Armory ($425,000) and Probabeel ($425,000) look good options.

Best of the Rest

Once again this round I think will lead to some very different looking stables this round but here are some potentially good options outside of the group 1s…

Having said that I think Young Werther ($125,000) and Ecumenical ($175,000) should be locked into every stable this round.

Looking for a bench option (which I think might be important this round having to lock our stables in by Friday night) then look no further than race 2 on Saturday. My two top options from the race would be Son of Mercury ($50,000) and Sneaky Five ($50,000).

All the best for round 4 everyone and would be interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on their strategy for the round, as well as captaincy and bench options.

  1. Another great write up Froffers!

    A word of warning for anyone thinking of selecting Armory in their stable as a Group 1 Cox Plate horse word is could be a late scratching after pulling up lame during trackwork this morning.


  2. Magic Wand has been withdrawn and scratched from the Cox Plate due to lameness in the off fore leg. Buckhurst gains a start.

    An update on Armory will be issued shortly. Talk the stable might be able to put on Bar Plates to ease the pain from a foot abyss.

    Armory update just in. Following a re inspection by 3 vets this morning Armory has been found fit to run in the Cox Plate.


  3. Geez the Diamond Effort late scratching from the Manikato Stakes will hurt a few as it was 4th Fav at only 325k.


  4. Young Werther is scratched so will hurt a few especially the 4% that have the Captain on it. Those who have Sneaky Five as Emergency will get his 18 winning pts onto the field.
