Giadresco stable sprinter Profit Street will look for his first win of the spring carnival when he runs in the $250,000 Group 3 A.J. Scahill Stakes (1400m) at Ascot on Saturday.

But standing in his way is the in-form State Solicitor who won last month’s $150,000 Colonel Reeves Stakes (1100m) and is expected to start as favourite for the race.

Jarrad Noske will take the saddle for Profit Street and the pair will jump from barrier 12, a tough draw in the 12-horse race.

Trainer Matt Giadresco said the six-year-old gelding was a great chance to claim a victory.

“He is going well and got a good run in the Winterbottom before being blocked on the straight,” he said.

“We got the outside barrier, so we will take it from wide and power home.

“Jarrad has won on him before as well.”

Giadresco said this would likely be the last race for Profit Street before he goes into the paddock for a spell.

The South West trainer confirmed Sixpence Spent will race in Bunbury on Sunday across 1200m.

“He has dropped back to his preferred distance after a brave second last start,” he said.

“He has Brad Parnham and they run well together.”

Noske will ride two South West horses on Saturday when he takes to the saddle of the Michael Lane-trained Gee Boss in the $100,000 R.S. Crawford Stakes (1000m), jumping from barrier seven.
