WARREN KENNEDY

Jack Milner: Handicap races for fillies and mares are notoriously tricky and that looks to the case in Race 7 at Scottsville on Wednesday, a FM 89 Handicap over 1200m.

There is some decent talent in this field and although untried at Scottsville, Sean Tarry-trained Leading Fast could come out trumps. Some runners battle to handle this track but it is worth noting Tarry has engaged log-leading jockey Warren Kennedy to ride this three-year-old daughter of Silvano.

She has only raced seven times for one win, three seconds and a fourth, but does appear to be at her best over this distance. She is handily weighted with just 57.5kg on her back and will jump from barrier No 1 on a course where even up the straight, the best going is usually on the inside of the track.

She has also had a run this month and finished a one-length second behind Eskimo Kisses.

This could be a clash of top jockeys because her main threat is likely to come from Marsanne, with Anton Marcus up.

This race is a drop in class for the Duncan Howells-trained runner as her last start was in the Grade 3 Poinsettia Stakes for fillies and mares on 13 June. She finished eighth, beaten 7.45 lengths by Pretty Young Thing; however, she had a torrid time.

After losing two lengths at the start she hung badly and got bumped. This time she will be running in blinkers, which hopefully will help. However, she has developed a tendency to concede ground at the start and will have to concede 4.5kg to Leading Fast.

Another runner to include is Jackson Wells from the Mark Dixon yard. This four-year-old filly has only raced four times for one win, two seconds and a third.

She probably would prefer a little further but she has won over 1400m at this course. As this daughter of Jackson has not raced since February, she could be nice and fresh, and does have the speed to be competitive over 1200m.
