Kincaple Capable of Kingston Town Classic 2011 Upset

Local Ascot horseman Mark Reed has declared his 2011 Kingston Town Classic hopeful Kincaple as being in top form and ready to take on a quality field of rivals in Saturday’s half-a-million-dollar feature at Ascot.

Last seen running seventh when beaten six and a half lengths by Luckygray, favourite for the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Luxbet, in the Railway Stakes, Pentire six-year-old Kincaple is being tipped as the improver in the 14-horse field.


While Luckygray leads the Kingston Town Classic odds at a firm quote of $2.60, Kincaple is one of six other runners under $20 in the markets paying $12 to score an upset.

One of the best performing stayers in the WA country racing circuit, leading up to the Railway Kincaple won four of their six starts since July and ran second in the other two.

Their recent victories include the Coolgardie Cup (1600m) and Listed Boulder Cup (1760m), both at Kalgoorlie.

General consensus is that Kincaple could have finished much closer in their Group 1 debut last-start if they had drawn better than their barrier 13 of 16 gate.

In a bid to get Kincaple up to scratch for the Kingston Town, Reed will add blinkers to the gelding’s gear for the first time on Saturday.

“He’ll have blinkers on to get him to jump better,” Reed confirmed.

The gear change will hopefully see Kincaple, formerly prepared in Victoria by Jim Conlan, get away from the gates with more speed and settle a little closer to the front than they did in the Railway.

“If we draw a barrier we’ll have him ridden a bit closer,” Reed said.

“He doesn’t have to get that far back.

“He’s just been ridden like that because of bad barriers.

“One of his most impressive wins was before the Kal Cup when he led all the way over 2000 metres at Belmont (to win the Westpeed Stayers’ Bonus on August 13 by two lengths).”

Although Reed admitted Luckygray was the definite horse to beat, he was hopeful that his horse’s honesty and determination would ensure a good fight.

“He’s not as brilliant as Luckygray and those sort of horses but one thing he can do is make it a genuinely run race and maybe take a bit of sting out of them,” he said.

“He won’t lie down this horse, he’ll just keep going.”
