Tom Melbourne heads the 27 nominations for the Scone Cup

Fan favourites Destiny’s Kiss and Tom Melbourne head the 27 nominations for the Scone Cup on the first day of the Hunter Valley showpiece meeting.

The Joe Pride-trained veteran Destiny’s Kiss and Tom Melbourne from the Chris Waller stable, are equal topweights on 59kg for Friday’s Listed Scone Cup (1600m).

Now a 10-year-old, Destiny’s Kiss will have a winter campaign with Pride saying he shows no signs he is tired of racing.

“Winter is his time when the tracks are softer,” Pride said.

“He has had a good break and come back really well. He loves his work and stable life although obviously he is getting near the end of his career.”

Tom Melbourne racked up his 12th second placing in last month’s Hawkesbury Cup won by Archedemus after running third in the Doncaster Prelude behind his stablemates Mister Sea Wolf and Abdon.

Mister Sea Wolf franked his form with his second to stablemate Life Less Ordinary in Saturday’s Group Two Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast while Abdon won last Friday’s Wagga Wagga Cup.

There were 27 entries taken on Monday for the Cup and 17 for the Inglis Challenge (1100m) for two-year-olds.

Saturday’s program features eight stakes races headed by the Group Three Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) with the Kris Lees-trained Princess Posh the highest rated on 104.

The mare won the Group Three Newcastle Newmarket on March 8 before running third in the Group One Coolmore Classic eight days later.

Princess Posh is also entered for the Listed Luskin Star Stakes (1300m) and is the equal top-rated horse along with Godolphin’s Trekking.

There are more than 400 nominations over the two days.
