2013 Kingston Town Stakes Nominations Feature Caulfield Cup Hopes

A number of outside chances for the 2013 Caulfield Cup this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival will try their luck first in Sydney having been nominated for the $125,000 Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) this Saturday.

One of four black type features of Golden Rose Day at Rosehill Gardens, the Kingston Town Stakes 2013 currently features 17 early nominations.

A number of those are also in the mix for the $2.5 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 19, including the David Vandyke-trained Prince Cheri.

The shortest priced of the Kingston Town Stakes hopes in futures Caulfield Cup betting at a quote of $31, Prince Cheri is third-up this prep following two nice efforts.

Their first was a third to Pretty Pins, another Kingston nominee, at Randwick over the mile before their one and three quarter length Rosehill success on August 31.

Previously prepared in France by Mikel Delzangles of 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain fame, the Lando stallion has been with Vandkye in Sydney since the start of the year and Saturday will be just their fourth run down under.

Originally Vandkye, who also has Less Is More nominated for the Kingston Town, was going to save Prince Cheri for the $150,000 Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield Saturday week.

However he has opted to give them a Sydney run here instead as their chance of making what is shaping up as a bumper Naturalism Stakes field is unlikely.

“I spoke with (Racing Victoria chief handicapper) Greg Carpenter and he said we probably won’t get a run in the Naturalism,” Vandyke told The Daily Telegraph this week.

“The only other race on that day is the Underwood Stakes where Prince Cheri would be meeting the likes of Puissance De Lune and Green Moon at level weights which is not ideal.

“So I felt it is best to leave Prince Cheri at home this weekend and if he can win then it helps our chances going forward into the spring.”

Other notable Caulfield Cup entries nominated for Saturday’s race then include the Gai Waterhouse-trained Julienas who was second in the Hawkesbury Gold Cup before their close last start fourth in last weekend’s Wyong Gold Cup over 2100m, and Chris Waller’s French import Lunayir.

Waller has also nominated for fellow French expat Lucripetous and his British import I’m Imposing.

Also worth noting for the Kingston Town Stakes at nominations stage are the Peter Snowden-trained duo of Angelus and Chasse; Bede Murray’s Hakwsbury Gold Cup third placed Darci Be Good; the Peter Snowden-trained Lonhro mare Euryale; and the Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes trained Fiumicino who hasn’t raced since their disappointing Grafton Cup effort back in July.

See below for the current Kingston Town Stakes 2013 nominations with final acceptances taken on Wednesday.
