Colin Scott will produce a horse this Saturday at Caulfield which is sure to be one of the most closely followed returns on the entire weekend

Four year old gelding Speediness has his first up run for the season in the Testa Rossa Stakes across 1200m.

The horse has had just six starts so far in his career and many of them have been in the lower grades however he’s still managed to compile a record of wo wins, two seconds and two third placings.

In addition to this it’s not like this is his first venture into open grade company, he’s been there before and run close to some top level horses.

In fact his final run last season was in the Three Year Old Classic during the Scone Cup Carnival where he finished a little over a length off the back of Group 1 champion Sincero.

Given the way Sincero has returned this season that stacks up well for Speediness, especially given the way Scott feels about his final run last prep.

“To be honest he was probably coming to the end of his tether going into the Scone Guineas,” Scott said.

That’s backed up by the fact they didn’t push on to Brisbane when the horse appeared to be in good form so he’s had a long spell.

That spell was made slightly longer by a minor setback late in the piece which pushed his return back a little deeper into the spring.

“It was a bit of a pain and put everything into disarray but we did the right thing by the horse,” Scott said.

He now considers it a blessing in disguise and he’s eager to produce a burly and fresh horse this Saturday.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how he goes with no weight on his back (53kgs)…he’s a big strong horse,” he said.

While he has had a decent break Scott says that doesn’t mean he won’t be fit enough to win the race.

“He’s fit, he’s had a jumpout and he’s had a trial, he’s certainly fit enough or the 1200m….they might be a bit slick for him is all,” he said.

The ultimate prize for Speediness would be crack at Group 1 level towards the end of the carnival.

“Our grand final will be the Emirates Stakes if we can get that way,” he said.

Scott says the gelding is only likely to get better the more racing he gets into his legs.

“I know he’s a four year old but he’s still got a lot of growing to do,” he said.

He will be ridden by Craig Williams in the 2011 Testa Rossa Stakes and will jump from gate 11 of 12.
