Strawberry Boy Out to Continue Run in 2012 Kingston Town Stakes

Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding Strawberry Boy will be out to continue a rich vein of form when he contests the Group 3 2012 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill tomorrow.

Strawberry Boy is on track for a third straight win in Saturday's Kingston Town Stakes

Waterhouse is aiming the talented four-year-old at the Caulfield Cup and a win this week is important to improve his position in the order of entry.

After being told the son of Redoute’s Choice would most likely miss a start in next week’s Naturalism Stakes, Waterhouse was forced to change plans and back him up seven days after a dominant win at Warwick Farm.

Tommy Berry will be riding the promising stayer on race day for the first time and he believes the short turnaround won’t be a problem.

“I cantered him around on Monday morning and he went around like he hadn’t had a run,” Berry said.

Berrry, who is number two rider for Waterhouse behind star jockey Nash Rawiller, is expecting Strawberry Boy to prove even stronger as he steps up to 2000 metres this weekend.

“I think the 2000 metres will suit him a treat because he looked a little bit dour last Saturday,” he said.

A winner of four of five starts, Strawberry Boy was a $300,000 purchase at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Punters and bookmakers alike both think Strawberry Boy will be tough to beat on Saturday and he currently stands as a $2.10 favourite.

Occupying the second line of betting are last-start winner Crafty Irna and the Chris Waller-trained Stout Hearted who are both being offered at $6.00.

Stout Hearted has not finished worse than fourth since joining Waller’s stable fromt he UK and is being aimed at the Group 1 Metropolitan.
