Roughie Kingston Town Classic 2012 Ride for Yuill

Female apprentice hoop Kyra Yuill will shoot for her maiden Group 1 winning ride this Saturday at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse having picked up the ride on outside chance Maschino in the 2012 Kingston Town Classic.

Prepared by Yuill’s father Graham Yuill, the Encosta De Lago stallion is rated around $41 in the early markets for the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) with barriers for the final field to be released later this afternoon.

Winner of the Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) two starts back, Maschino was last seen running a disappointing ninth to Mr Moet in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) where the slow pace worked against them.

“I felt the speed wasn’t on and we got caught up in the ruck,” their trainer explained.

“He had a bit of a tussle with Ranger but I was more than happy with the way he hit the line.

“I still maintain that races over 1800 and 2000 will be better for him.”

On Saturday they will face off against a very similar field of rivals including upset Railway Stakes winner Mr Moet, current Kingston Town Classic favourite Luckygray and the improving Rosie Rocket – Maschino needing to improve considerably when they step up in distance to be competitive.

One thing that will change from their last start is the jockey.

For their five runs throughout the spring Maschino has been ridden by Jarrad Noske with Yuill sidelined with a broken ankle and bleeding on the brain she sustained after a horror fall at Belmont Park back in September.

Yuill, winner of the Perth Cup last year with Western Jewel, will get the chance to reunite with the horse she rode for 13 of their opening 15 career starts this weekend however having made a successful return to the saddle.

She resumed riding on November 21 and showed she had lost none of her flare guiding Dangerously to a narrow victory over 1410m at Bunbury, and now she will look to win again this time at Group 1 level.

“Jarrad has done nothing wrong and has ridden him very well but this was always the plan,” Graham Yuill said.

“Kyra does all the work on him (Maschino) and she’s been riding well since making her comeback.”

Noske will still have a ride in the Kingston Town Classic aboard $101 roughie Belora racing for the first time since their sixth to Maschino in the RJ Peters Stakes.

One notable omission from the 2012 Kingston Town Classic field meanwhile is last year’s third place-getter King Saul who was found to be suffering from a virus after their dead last finish in the Railway Stakes last time out.
