No Late 2012 Kingston Town Classic Entry for Bippo No Bungus

After an eye-catching effort to come within a short half-head of victory in the WA Guineas over the weekend, Bippo No Bungus will not be a late entry for the Kingston Town Classic 2012 Saturday week with connections to concentrate on an easier assignment for the surprise filly.

A $70,000 purchase from the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sales, the now three-year-old daughter of Dubawi has enjoyed two magic runs this month.

After a close second to Fuddle Dee Duddle in the Group 3 Champion Stakes (1600m), her first start over the mile, on November 17 Bippo No Bungus backed up last Saturday in the Group 2 WA Guineas over the same track and distance but this time against the boys.

Rated only a $40 chance for the Guineas she silenced the critics when she ate up the ground late to challenge the winner and run a devastatingly close second.

Part-owner Eddie Rigg briefly considered paying the $11,000 late entry to get her into the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on December 8 after her gallant Guineas run.

However the decision to bypass the Kingston Town has since been confirmed with Bippo No Bungus to contest her original target at Saturday week’s meeting, the $80,000 Listed Aquanita Stakes (1800m).

“Under the set weight and penalty clauses, she comes into the race well,” he said.

“The thing I like about her is she keeps improving with each run.”

Rigg also co-owns Railway Stakes fourth placed Fuddle Dee Duddle who will back up in the Kingstown Town Classic, and he rates both her and Bippo No Bungles as genuine chances for a 2013 Oaks campaign in either Adelaide or Brisbane.

“I think you may see both fillies run in the Oaks in Adelaide or Brisbane next year,” he said.

Kingstown Town Classic pre-field betting markets meanwhile are led by Saturday’s beaten Railway Stakes favourite Luckygray who might have failed to go back-to-back in the Group 1, but who was far from disgraced coming from last on the turn to run second to surprise winner Mr Moet.

“He seems well but it always takes a few days for it to take effect,” trainer Gino Poletti said of Luckygray.

The Adam Durrant-trained Mr Moet meanwhile is also Kingston Town Classic-bound, the five-year-old the first horse in 61 years to win the Railway first-up off a spell.

Mr Moet was originally being aimed at the 2013 Perth Cup on New Year’s Day but will likely be weighted out of contention after winning the Railway, the Kingston Town followed the $225,000 Group 2 C.B. Cox Stakes (2100m) on December 22 now their main aims. is the site to stick on for all the Perth Summer Racing Carnival news and betting updates.
