George Scott

    Filled to the rafters with two year olds, second season trainer George Scott is looking forward to next season, although his stable star James Garfield does have a date at Del Mar early next month for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf

GEORGE SCOTT can rightly be pleased with the way his second full season as a trainer has developed as he has notched 19 winners on the domestic front and boasts a 19 per cent strike rate with a healthy return of over £200,000 in prize money.

Star of the show has undoubtedly been the Bill and Tim Gredley-owned James Garfield who helped cement family connections when lifting the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury in September as George married Gredley’s daughter Polly the same month.

The partnership strike on now to Del Mar for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf on November 3 and Scott has every hopes that there be some further successes to be gained on home soil before the end of the year.

Scott said: “The horses have run well all year and I am very lucky to have a horse of James Garfield’s ability so early in my career. It has been a year to remember in so many ways and we are looking forward to taking our chance in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf.”

George has plenty of untapped juveniles for next year and kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about his team.

Three Year Olds

Essential

Form Profile:

Promise in three starts in maiden company and currently rated 67. Finished runner-up, beaten two and a half lengths, to Something Blue at Redcar (6f) in September.

Trainer Says:

He runs at Redcar on Friday and is having his first run in a handicap and is stepping up to seven furlongs. He is a horse that is not short of speed but I think seven furlongs and a mile now he is handicapping will be more to his liking.

Gilgamesh

Form Profile:

Winner of four of his five starts and currently rated 92.

Trainer Says:

Gilgamesh has come back from a mid season break following a busy early campaign. It was a slightly forced break as he picked up an injury and he has returned back to work. I took him to Chelmsford the other day for an away day where he showed all his zest and ability. He will most likely run once or twice more on the AW before being put away for a Winter break. He will then come back with the idea of running in the Spring and he needs top of the ground. Jamie Spencer has ridden him in his last three wins and thinks we could drop him back in trip next year and that he could develop into a Wokingham horse next year.

Jack The Truth (IRE)

Form Profile:

Promise in two maidens at Lingfield (5f) and Wolverhampton (5f) in February. Finished runner-up, beaten three and a half lengths, to Logi when last seen out.

Trainer Says:

We are looking to step him up in trip and I think he is a horse that could improve and win races through the Winter.

Road To Dubai (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 13 starts and currently rated 82. Returned to winning form on latest start at Redcar (1m 2f) this month when beating Armandihan a neck off a mark of 77.

Trainer Says:

He has been a brilliant servant for the yard this year and has won three times. There is every chance he could run once or twice more in handicap company before, hopefully, making up into a horse for those middle distance Saturday handicaps next year. I think Hayley (Turner) gave him a smashing ride to win last time and the tactics that she has shown to hold him up in mid division and then cajole him along rather than force him has played to his strengths. We will be looking to for a similar type of ride next time.

Two Year Olds

Ace Of Spades (USA)

Form Profile:

Promise in all three starts and finished runner-up, beaten three and a half lengths to Marnie James at Musselburgh (5f) on Monday.

Trainer Says:

We thought he would be suited by the drop to five furlongs and having his first attempt on the turf and he ran a solid race to finish second. We will see what the handicapper does with him but there are races to be won with him.

ADVANCED VIRGO

  • 2 b c Holy Roman Emperor – Amaraje
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is a slightly immature colt that won’t be seen until next year and could maybe run in the Wood Ditton at Newmarket.

Another Batt (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of three of his 9 starts and currently rated 101. Returned to winning form on his latest start in a valuable event at Veliefendi (6f) in September when beating Armondo a length and a half, Highly creditable efforts previously when runner-up, beaten a neck, to Raydiance in a listed event at Ascot (7f) in July and when third beaten a length and three quarters, to Hey Gaman in the listed Washington Singer Stakes at Newbury (7f) in August.

Trainer Says:

He has had a break since his victory in Turkey and is due to come back to the yard in a fortnight’s time before being prepared for Dubai where he will have a crack at the UAE 2000 Guineas. He has a lot of early speed and travels well and there is no reason why he shouldn’t acquit himself well on that dirt surface.

ARTHUR DALEY

  • 2 b c Camelot – Nasanice
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is a gorgeous horse by Camelot who has taken plenty of time and he will be trained through the winter and we will look to get him on the track in a mile to a mile and quarter maiden somewhere between Christmas and the New Year.

BASTIDE BLANCHE

  • 2 ch f Champs Elysees – Starlit Sky
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She will have one run on the grass and one run on the AW and she is a filly that is really starting to understand what is required of her. I think she will be nice handicap prospect for next season.

BELLA FERRARI

  • 2 b f Bated Breath – Massarossa
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She s a gorgeous filly who came into us very late and I hope to give her one run on the grass before putting her away.

BRIGHT SAFFRON

  • 2 ch f Champs Elysees – Mercy Pecksniff
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She is a nice middle distance filly for next year and she is likely to be out in the Spring. Her trip is likely to be a mile and a quarter to a mile and a half.

CATHERINE TRAMELL

  • 2 b f Zoffany – Aine
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She has had a bit of a break in the Summer to let her strengthen up and mature. She will be a filly to look forward too in the Spring as she has shown plenty of ability at home.

CRASH HELMET

  • 2 b g Helmet – Hot Seat
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

Has been a little immature this year and I am going to put him away and he will be out in the Spring. He is a very fast horse and will be something to look forward to next year.

Encryption (IRE)

Form Profile:

Unplaced but only beaten four and three quarter lengths by Tansheet at Newcastle (1m) in September.

Trainer Says:

He enjoyed the experience at Newcastle first time out and should improve for that. He will run at Redcar on Friday and is a gorgeous scopey horse who will come into his own over middle distances next year. However, I think he is capable of running very well over a mile this year.

GAJA

  • 2 b f High Chaparral – Subtle Charm
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

She is a gorgeous middle distance prospect for next year, who is a little bit immature but has shown plenty. She has gone out for a break but will be back in the Spring.

Holy Tiber (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of her 6 starts and currently rated 77. Gained her last success when scoring by half a length from Secret Vixen at Nottingham (6f) in July and creditable effort next time in a nursery at Yarmouth (6f) in August when fourth, beaten a length and three quarters to Tulip Fever off a mark of 79.

Trainer Says:

She has been a great servant to the yard this year and has exceeded expectations. She has won twice and ran a good race in the Sales race at Newmarket recently. She has been put away and will probably return at seven furlongs or a mile where we should see a big improvement.

James Garfield (IRE)

Form Profile:

Winner of two of his 6 starts and currently rated 112. Very progressive colt who was beaten only a nose by Wells Farhh Go in the Group 3 Acomb  Stakes at York (7f) in August and went one better in the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury (6f) in September when holding Invincible Army by three quarters of a length.

Trainer Says:

He had danced every dance and showed improvement every run. I took him to Chelmsford for a gallop last week where Michael Hills road him and was very impressed. He is in great form and heads to the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Del Mar. He is a neat little horse who will handle the tight turns there and he will appreciate the fast ground. We just want to get him there safe and sound now.

MAGNETIC BOUNDARY

  • 2 ch c Union Rags – Enthused
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is a new addition to the yard who has been very straightforward since joining us. He is about to move into faster work and we are about to find out a lot more about him.

Mankind (FR)

Form Profile:

Better effort on debut at Ascot (6f) in July when fourth, beaten two and a half lengths, to Lethal Lunch.

Trainer Says:

He ran really well first time out at Ascot in a race which has had plenty of winners. Unfortunately he scoped dirty after his next run when disappointing at Newmarket and he has been gelded. He will have a run around Christmas time before having a proper Spring campaign on the grass.

Marilyn M (IRE)

Form Profile:

Unplaced on her debut at Nottingham (5f) in May.

Trainer Says:

She ran first time at Nottingham on ground that was much too quick for her. She has the scope to run over seven furlongs and a mile and she could be a filly to keep an eye on when running on the AW during the Winter.

MEWTOW

  • 2 b c Helmet – White Spirit
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is an easy moving Helmet colt that has taken a little bit of time to settle down since the Breeze-Ups. He has shown a level of ability that indicates he will be a nice prospect over a mile next year.

OLYMPIC ODYSSEY

  • 2 b c Camelot – Field of Hope
Form Profile:

Unraced

Trainer Says:

He is a Camelot colt who has been very backward and has returned to the Gredley’s for a break but will be back with us in the next month or so. He will be trained through the Winter and have a run on the AW early next year. He will be a better horse on the grass in the Spring.

Sigrid Nansen

Form Profile:

No wins from four starts and currently rated 68.

Trainer Says:

She has been showing slight signs of immaturity in her races but has improved and I will be looking to run her in a nursery in the next two or three weeks. She should be pretty competitive in nursery company.

Slipstream (IRE)

Form Profile:

Finished last of eight but beaten only six and three quarter lengths to Anna Nerium in a novice event at Newmarket (7f) in July.

Trainer Says:

He showed immaturity first time out and just started growing so we had to leave him alone. He will be a very nice proposition for next year and probably over a mile plus.

Starboy

Form Profile:

Winner of one of his 6 starts and currently rated 66. Off the mark in a nursery at Brighton (7f) last week when beating Jo’s Girl half a length off his current mark.

Trainer Says:

He managed to get his head in front at Brighton last week and I think it has done his confidence the world of good. He will run once or twice more before being put away.

Form Profile:

No wins from 4 starts and currently rated 66. Ran best race in a nursery at Catterick (6f) last week when runner-up, beaten three quarters of a length, to Fortunate Vision off a mark of 63.

Trainer Says:

He had two runs for David Marnane before joining us and he ran brilliantly on his handicap bow at Catterick last week where he may have been in front for too long. He will maybe run a couple of more times this year and I expect him to be in the winner’s enclosure before too long.
