Go for a Night Trip at Scottsville

The Candice Bass- Robinson-trained Night Trip could be the right one to take out Race 6.

Although he has not won for some time the Candice Bass- Robinson-trained Night Trip could be the right one to take out Race 6, a Pinnacle Stakes over 1400m at Scotts­ville on Sunday.

The Trippi gelding will have top-weight but comes into the race well weighted 1kg in with stable compan­ion Ashton Park and better off with the balance of the field.

Night Trip was runner-up behind Highway Explorer over an inadequate 1000m on the Polytrack in November and recently was third behind the fast improving Ama­zon King.

This longer distance suits him better and it is notewor­thy that Anton Marcus will be aboard the seven-year-old.

The Gareth van Zyl yard is ticking along nicely and Bu­dapest is sure to prove a danger as the Lithuanian gelding likes this track.

Ashton Park has been disappointing recently but is clearly not out of it.

In a competive Race 5, a MR 70 Handicap over 1400m we could get a decent run from Roy’s Stormer.
