Caulfield trainer Colin Scott will map out a Spring Carnival plan for Speediness after the five year old took out the Listed $200,000 Emirates Park Scone Cup (1600m) at Scone today.

Scott has ruled out a trip to Brisbane for the Winter Carnival and will send Speediness to the paddock before preparing for the Spring with Scott still undecided what races to target.

“He’ll go to the paddock now and we’re going to have a crack at the Spring,” Scott said.

“I’ve got a few little tricks up my sleeve to get him right for the Spring this time.”

“I think he’ll run 2000m, we’ll just see how he pulls up, he’ll go home and then we’ll look at his next preparation and we’ll map out where we are going to go.”

Scott brought Speediness up to New South Wales after winning the Listed $120,000 7-Eleven Pink Ribbon Cup (1400m) at Caulfield on April 20 then ran a fair race when third to Mouro in the Listed $150,000 XXXX Gold Hawkesbury Rowley Mile (1600m) at Hawkesbury on May 4.

Speediness ($13) was able to turn the tables on $7.50 equal favourite Mouro, holding on by a nose after Christian Reith set up a winning break at the 300m.

Locally trained roughie Kaypers ($26) ran home from well back to claim third for trainer Greg Bennett.

A dashing ride by Reith saw him capture his second Scone Cup in three years after winning in 2011 on the Peter Snowden trained Dysphonia.

“The second one in three years, hopefully it becomes a habit,’ Reith said.

“At the 600m I had to bring him out, he was just going too well, lap full of horse. The horse could have won better if I could have waited to the straight.”

Speediness was travelling that well with the blinkers on for the first time that Reith had to move earlier than he wanted to but the five year old was able to fight off the challenges in the run to the line.

“He build momentum really well, sprinted very well, and hung on well.’

“He began like a bullet and so I just put him in a nice spot, nothing was really making ground today so I was happy where I was and I was always confident coming around the corner.”

Equal favourite Floria was always in the forward pack and held on for fourth while the other equal favourite Raspberries ran home late in the straight without threatening to finish sixth.
