Longport The Market Mover In 2013 Railway Stakes Betting Markets

Classy mare Longport has been the best backed runner in 2013 Railway Stakesbetting markets and is now into odds of $5.50 to win her maiden Group 1 event at Ascot on Saturday.

Longport was considered an extreme outsider at odds of $81 when Railway Stakes betting markets were first released but has been well-backed since she won the Emirates Airline Handicap (1400m) in impressive fashion on Emirates Stakes Day.

The daughter of Casino Prince drew barrier twelve at the Railway Stakes barrier draw on Tuesday, inside Mr Moet and Fire Up Fifi, and there has been a constant stream of support for the Danny Bougoure-trained mare, especially in the past 24 hours.

Leading Melbourne jockey Craig Newitt will partner Longport in the Railway Stakes this afternoon and he is confident that the four-year-old can upset betting favourite Smokin’ Joey to record her first victory at the highest level of racing.

“I think she is the one to beat,” Newitt said.

“She has been set for the race.

“She ran the fastest closing sectionals in the sprint (Yellowglen Stakes) then won really well on the last day of the carnival and drops 3.5kg here.”

“She is a top class mare who will roll forward, take up a spot, makes her own luck and give a good kick at the finish.

“Obviously, if Smokin Joey runs up to his Emirates run he probably wins, but all the time I’ve known him and ridden him he’s never put two runs together.

“He put two together at Flemington now he’s got to do it for the third time and this race is not normally run for back markers.”

Smokin’ Joey has remained steady at his 2013 Railway Stakes odds of $4.60, while there has been a sprinkling of support for horses at longer odds like importer galloper Mutual Trust ($12) and Ranger ($18).

Mutual Trust has form around Eclipse Stakes winner Mouro and was competitive in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) at Caulfield, while Ranger has not won for over two years but ran well in the Group 2 Waroa-Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) on November 9 and gets into the race well in the weights.

Defending champion Mr Moet was considered a leading chance to go back-to-back in the Railway Stakes but his chances took a major hit when he drew the outsider barrier of the sixteen horse field.

The Caulfield Cup sixth placegetter will start at Railway Stakes odds of $19, similar to when he won the race last year, but even trainer Adam Durrant has admitted that the Mosayter gelding will need plenty of luck to score his Group 1 win.
