Scarbrough Stakes Tips 2020

Taking a look at the field and comparing with the 12 year stats we can start to cross out a few names,

  • Dakota Gold – only 3 days since last run.
  • Urban Beat – drawn in the bogey seat of stall 1.
  • Acklam Expree – Too young at just 2 years old.
  • Makana – Drawn too high in 9.
  • Tarboosh – Too old at 7.
  • Wise Words – Too long off the track.
  • Country Carnival – Only rated 93.

This leaves us with just two MOSS GILL and ROCKET ACTION. 

The final selection will be sent out to VIP members on the morning of the race.
