The Scurry Stakes (Saturday 3.20) is a 5-furlong Listed Race run at Sandown Park. It was first run in 2005, and is open to 3-year-olds only.

2014 winner Wind Fire recording the fastest time of 1:00:03 – just 4 hundredths of a second from breaking the magical minute barrier. Meanwhile, of the trainers with runners, only William Haggas has won the race before, whilst Ryan Moore (twice) is the only jockey riding to have won the race before.

Scurry Stakes

Nine runners are set to go to post for the 2016 Scurry Stakes.

Dhahmaan

Won a 6-furlong Listed Race as a 2-year-old, but well beaten in another Listed race and a Group 3 so far this season. Not convinced that the drop to 5-furlongs is the answer though Frankie Dettori, who has ridden her to victory before, is back in the saddle.

Ornate

Previous winners Haggas and Moore team-up this time, and she may improve for having Ryan Moore in the saddle for the first time. She will need to though, as she was beaten by Shadow Hunter as a 2-year-old, and has been beaten three-times since.

Shaden

Having her first run of the season and her first run for new trainer George Scott, but interesting on her Ayr Group-3 win at the end of last season. She beat useful yardstick Only Mine there but, whilst she showed plenty of her early speed, that race was over 6-furlongs.

Soapy Aitken

Highly touted after an early 2-year-old win, but has come up short since several times. Was also beaten by Shadow Hunter last season.

Willytheconqueror

Soft was in the going description when recording all three wins, but this one is the only course and distance winner in the field. That form doesn’t look strong enough though, and also 8lb worse off with the runner-up Lady Macapa.

Easton Angel

Looked a potential star after her first 2 runs, and lost nothing in defeat when second in the Queen Mary. That hard race seed to leave its mark though, and her form tailed-off in the second-half of the season. However, she looked fresh and well on her seasonal reappearance and is the one to beat.

Shadow Hunter

Caused a 33/1 shock when winning York Listed race last year with Ornate and Soapy Aitken behind. Not won since though, and it might just be that was a poor race for its standing. 5-lengths behind Easton Angel last time, but 5lb better off.

Lady Macapa

Ran her best race here when second to Willytheconqueror, and could well reverse that form on 8lb better terms, though even that may not be good enough.

Lil’s Joy

Won a conditions race at two, but form since leaves her with a little to find.

Scurry Stakes Summary

It was hard not to be impressed by the first three runs of Easton Angel last year and, though her form tailed off afterwards, she remains a filly of some potential after her winning seasonal debut – and she rates a decent bet at a general 5/2.
