Updated Railway Stakes Odds 2013

This Saturday, November 23, the action of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival heats up with the running of the 2013 Railway Stakes, odds for which are firmly led by the Wez Hunter-trained Smokin’ Joey.

After coming up trumps with a nice barrier seven draw for the $1 million Group 1 Carlton Draught Railway Stakes (1600m) the Mornington-based gelding confirmed their spot at the top of the markets for the Ascot classic.

Encosta De Lago six-year-old Smokin’ Joey, formerly prepared by Mick Price and before that Lee and Anthony Freedman, comes via a very nice Group 1 run in Melbourne.

After a second-up victory beating Galah in the Group 3 TAB.com.au Stakes (1400m) on Derby Day they returned to Flemington and came within a long neck of the Chris Waller-trained winner Boban in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m).

They get the same distance here, and if the four Railway Stakes emergencies come out, they will start from the same barrier (6).

What they will have to handle however is a step up from just 52.5kg to 56kg.

The bookies believe they are capable of that, and of handling the heat in Perth, however and Smokin’ Joey pays $4.20 in the latest Railway Stakes betting markets.

In a bumper field of 20 final acceptors, 16 of which are guaranteed a run, there are then just three other single figure fancies.

Following the favourite in the Railway Stakes odds are then:

  • #11 Longport ($6.50) – Danny Bougoure-trained Casnio Prince mare from Brisbane, won their last start over 1400m at Flemington on Emirates Day carrying 57kg, drop to 53.5kg which will suit with a midfield draw, has form right up to 2000m at Group 1 level in Sydney (2nd in Storm Queen) so distance will be ideal third-up seeing the mile
  • #14 Plucky Belle ($8.50) – Another mare, this one prepared by Peter Moody, the daughter of Mossman also a last start Flemington winner from Melbourne Cup Day over 1400m where they defeated Arinosa, last time over the mile was in April when fourth in the Emancipation but with the right run can feature
  • #9 Fire Up Fifi ($8.50) – Second Queensland mare in the mix, Rob Heathcote’s one-time Railway favourite is in top form and comes over with Winterbottom Stakes favourite Buffering, has been in good form most recently running third to Group 1 star Red Tracer in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) from November 2, a winner over the Eagle Farm mile beating Conservatorium during the winter and has strong claims

There are then plenty of other livewire chances with claims at double figures.

Among the next best fancied at more generous odds are the likes of Mike Reed’s local stayer Kincaple ($13), the Gary Kennewell-trained Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes winner from November 9 Conservatorium ($15), Sale Cup runner-up Mutual Trust ($16) and the reigning Railway Stakes winner Mr Moet ($16) who has the extreme outside barrier to overcome this year.
