2013 Kingston Town Classic Betting Tips

The Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) is the biggest race taking place in Australia this weekend and eleven of the best horses in Western Australia are set to do battle in the $500,000 race at Ascot on Saturday.

Luckygray and Mr Moet were the stars of last year’s Perth Summer Racing Carnival, along with Barakey, and will continue their rivalry in the Kingston Town Classic this weekend.

Luckygray defeated Mr Moet to win the Kingston Town Classic last year and is the clear favourite to go back to back, at odds of $2.60, after lumping the top-weight to victory in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot just over a fortnight ago.

Mr Moet ($5.50) had no luck during the Railway Stakes, with the Mosayter gelding trapped wide in the early stages of the race after drawing the outside gate, and will face a tough task from barrier 11 on Saturday.

The best backed runner in 2013 Kingston Town Classic betting markets is three-year-old Ihtsahymn who stamped himself as a contender for the Group 1 weight-for-age event with a fast-finishing victory in the Group 2 Western Australian Guineas (1600m) on Super Saturday at Ascot.

Ihtsahymn is now into Kingston Town Classic odds of $4.60 and trainer Fred Kersley, who prepared equine superstar Northerly, is hopeful that the classy galloper is good enough to continue the excellent record that three-year-olds have in the race.

Can Luckygray win the Kingston Town Classic for the second year in a row or will Mr Moet, Ihtsahymn or an outsider end his winning run?

2013 Kingston Town Classic Tips


#11 Ihtsahymn ($4.60)

Ihtsahymn’s victory in the Western Australian Guineas was most impressive and the colt gives every impression that he will run a strong 1800 metres. Three-year-olds have an excellent record in this race and he meets the rest of the leading chances seven kilos in the weights.


#3 Mr Moet ($5.50)

Mr Moet never had a chance from the wide draw in the Railway Stakes and should relish the step-up to 1800 metres. The six-year-old was far from disgraced during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne and trainer Adam Durrant said that his condition has improved significantly since returning to his home stable.


#5 Ranger ($21)

Ranger is unproven over 1800 metres but is a consistent galloper who very rarely runs a good race. He is currently available at very generous odds to finish in the placings and is well worth a small each-way bet.
