Trainer Paul Messara was very bullish about the chances of Scissor Kick heading into the Group 1 Royal Randwick Guineas (1600m) after he finally drew a positive barrier, but the Redoute’s Choice colt was found with an elevated temperature and Messara was forced to scratch the three-year-old at the advice of vets.

Scissor Kick had been one of the best-backed runners in 2015 Royal Randwick Guineas betting markets heading into the Group 1 event and many punters rated the colt an excellent chance to upset the leading trio of Hallowed Crown, Shooting To Win and Sweynesse.

The talented colt stamped himself as a horse to watch when he scored a strong win in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Royal Randwick on August 9 and he proved that was no fluke when he took out the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m) at Royal Randwick a fortnight later.

Scissor Kick made his debut at Group 1 level in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 13 and he finished a close second behind Hallowed Crown despite having little luck in running before he once again had no luck when second in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 26.

The three-year-old was sent to the spelling paddock after he finished ninth in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on November 1 and he returned to the races with a fast-finishing victory in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) before he finished a credible fifth in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at the same venue a fortnight later.

The withdrawal of Scissor Kick from the Royal Randwick Guineas has shortened the price of the remaining six runners in the race, but Hallowed Crown and Shooting To Win remain locked in a battle for favouritism at a quote of $2.60.

Sweynesse has been backed from $4 into $3.40 and is still on the third line of betting, while there has been a sprinkling of support for the lightly-raced Sworn To Silence ($18 into $13), Victoria Derby winner Preferment ($61 into $31) and Kembla Grange-based Rhodin Drive ($101 into $41).

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress
    because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I
    love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Truly when someone doesn’t understand then its up to
    other viewers that they will assist, so here it occurs.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A fantastic
    read. I will certainly be back.

    I’ve been surfing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my view, if
    all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net can be
    much more useful than ever before.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading incredibly
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is
    it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if
    the problem still exists.

    At this time it looks like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
