The richest and most prestigious race on the WA racing calendar, the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) is set to run as Race 8 on Saturday at 4:50pm (local).

Of the capacity field the favourite is Encosta De Lago six-year-old Smokin’ Joey coming off a close second to Boban in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes, also run over the mile, at Flemington on November 9.

When betting on the Railway Stakes final field opened earlier in the week Smokin’ Joey sat top of the odds paying $4.20.

They have since drifted out to $5 however but are still the favourite to win at this stage.

Hot on their heels then is Brisbane-based mare Longport who has been backed in from $6 to $6.50.

The daughter of Casino Prince, prepared by Danny Bougoure, comes off an Emirates Stakes Day win in Melbourne and will relish the drop back from 57kg there to her 53.5kg Railway weight.

There’s also been money come in for the Peter Moody-trained Plucky Belle ($8.50 to $8) who, despite their double digit draw, is well liked to go back-to-back following a last start Flemington Melbourne Cup Day victory over the 1400m.

Another market drifter along with the favourite meanwhile has been the Robert Heathcote-trained Fire Up Fifi out form $8.50 to $9, the Bradbury’s Luck grey coming off a Group 1 third to Red Tracer in the Myer Classic from November 2.

The big Railway Stakes market mover meanwhile has been Mutual Trust backed in from $16 to $12.

Originating from France the Sam Pritchard-Gordon-trained Cacique gelding won their first four starts on the trot, including the Group 1 Prix Jeean Prat during their three-year-old season.

They have now had six runs in Australia for their new trainer but are still a maiden down under.

Their last effort was promising however when backing up from a sixth in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) to finish second to Mouro in the Sale Cup on October 27.

Other market moves include the Mike Reed-trained Kincaple (out from $13 to $15) and the reigning Railway Stakes winner Mr Moet ($16 out to $19).
