Disposition Could Bounce Back in Kingston Town Classic 2014

After the horse suffered his first career loss in the WA Guineas over the weekend owner Bob Peters said Disposition is still being considered for a shot at the 2014 Kingston Town Classic over more distance Saturday week.

The Grant Williams-trained Reset three-year-old went into the $400,000 Group 2 W.A. Guineas (1600m) at Ascot Racecourse as the even money favourite after winning his opening four career starts in the lead-up.

His latest run going into the Group 2 was a one length victory over $51 outsider Rommel in the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m) a fortnight earlier.

It was that upset Fairetha Stakes runner-up Rommel who would be the first horse to defeat Disposition.

Neville Parnham’s improving Commands colt went out at $21 odds for the Guineas but was too good for Disposition and third placed Say Geronimo finishing a half length ahead of the previously undefeated favourite.

Rommel pulled up after the run in flying condition looking to Parnham like he hadn’t even had a run, encouraging form looking ahead to the $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) back at the track on December 6.

Three-year-olds have a great record in Perth’s premier weight-for-age race with two saluting in the past three years.

The first of those in 2011 was Parnham’s WA Guineas winner Playing God who won the first of his eventual two Kingston Town Classics as a youngster on the 52kg three-year-olds’ weight.

Then 12 months ago during last year’s Perth Summer Racing Carnival the Fred Kersley-trained Ihtsahymn also completed the WA Guineas – Kingston Town Classic double.

Ihtsahymn, 10th in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) over the weekend, and Rommel are both possible Kingston Town Classic rides on December 6 for Steven Parnham who rode Playing God (2010) and last year’s winner to victory.

Disposition, ridden by Perth’s leading jockey William Pike for his WA Guineas second, meanwhile is yet to be confirmed 100% for a shot at the 1800m Group 1.

“If Disposition starts bouncing around, he may run,” Peters told The West Australian on Sunday.

“He ran a very good race on Saturday, but I’m not too sure whether the 1800m might be too far and he may be better suited dropping back to 1400m under set weights.”

The bookies are taking no chances in their futures Kingston Town Classic odds with Disposition occupying the fourth line of betting at $7.50.

Markets are led by Saturday’s Railway Stakes winner Elite Belle ($6), third placegetter Moriarty ($6.50) and runner-up Balmont Girl ($7).

The defending champ Ihtsahymn meanwhile pays $12 while Rommel is at a juicy $18, possibly underestimated once again.
