Higher Aims For Hawkesbury Mare

Hawkesbury trainer Scott Singleton has higher aspirations for promising 4YO mare Concessions if she handles a step up in distance on her home track on Tuesday.

Concessions was never in contention when resuming in the final qualifier of the Provincial Championships at Newcastle on March 31 but Singleton is tipping a different mare in today’s Hawkesbury Stayers Prelude over 2000m.

A good performance will clinch the Tickets mare a start in the $100,000 Provincial Stayers BM 85 Handicap (2100m) at Hawkesbury’s annual stand alone fixture on Saturday week.


Always hard to beat on at Hawkesbury her home track - all four wins of her career have been on her home track - Concessions finished down the course in Princess Posh’s Newcastle qualifier (1400m) but her trainer wasn’t disappointed with the performance.

“Her run was better than it may have looked on paper,” Singleton said. “She was doing her best work over the last 150m and ran right through the line.

“Concessions won second up over 1800m here in January last year after resuming over 1400m.

“This looks a good race for her and it works in well leading up to the Provincial Stayers race on Saturday week. She is ready to go and I’m sure she will run well tomorrow.”

Singleton has already confirmed Shazee Lee, who resumed with a late surge to finish a solid ninth in last Saturday’s G2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Randwick, as a definite runner in the $175,000 G3 Godolphin Crown (1300m) at the stand alone meeting.

Shazee Lee won last year’s Provincial Championships qualifier (1400m) and G3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) on her home track.

“I was happy with her first-up run at Randwick,” Singleton said. “She was a little fresh and raced a bit keen early, then levelled out at the 100m.

“That run will top her off for the Godolphin Crown.”
