Updated Kingston Town Classic 2014 Odds

Chris Waller’s Eastern State raider Moriarty leads the updated 2014 Kingston Town Classic odds for the feature race in Perth this weekend after coming up trumps with an inside alley.

The veteran Clodovil gelding is one of a capacity number of gallopers accepted for Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 TABTouch-Kingston Town Classic (1800m) that runs as Ascot Race 8 at 4:45pm (Perth time).

Allocated barrier three with Hong Kong’s Douglas Whyte replacing the suspended Nash Rawiller, the seven-year-old is likely to jump from the inside alley with barriers one and two drawn by the last two of four emergencies in the weight-for-age clash.

A fortnight ago Moriarty had his first run in WA when coming from back in the field to run third in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

Saturday he enjoys a 1.5kg turnaround in the weights on the Railway Stakes winner Elite Belle and runner-up Balmont Girl who are drawn in barriers 10 (into seven) and 16 (into 14) respectively for the rematch over more metres.

The latest Kingston Town Classic betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au are tipping Moriarty to relish the step up in distance and the equalising weights with the Sydneysider installed as the $3.90 favourite.

There are four other single figure fancies to win then with:

  • #16 Disposition ($6.50) – Grant Williams’ classy three-year-old may have a horror barrier (17) to overcome but the bookies are taking no chances on the four time winner who suffered his first loss last start when second to Rommel in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m). Three-year-olds have a great record in this race thanks to their advantageous 52kg lightweight and top Perth jockey William Pike jumped off the Railway Stakes winning stable mate for this ride.
  • #11 Elite Belle ([link text=”$7.50″]) – Railway Stakes winning mare Elite Belle has been in flying form in her two most recent preps including two Group wins from three runs this time in. She ate up the mile in the Railway and beat a similar field after a weaving run. Pike gave her a stunning ride for that Group 1 victory but he’s not on this time, Peter Hall taking over. Can he do as good a job?
  • #13 Balmont Girl ($8) – Paula Wagg-trained local four-year-old mare won the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes two back and has winning form over 2400m in the WA Oaks back in March. Was only three-quarters of a length off Elite Belle in the Railway Stakes from barrier 11 and has another wide gate to overcome here (16 into 12).
  • #15 Rommel ($9) – Neville Parnham-trained WA Guineas winner after the same Guineas – Kingston Town double Ihtsahymn achieved 12 months ago. Handed Disposition his only loss last start and is looking to beat him again. On 52kg under the WFA conditions and Steven Parnham opted to stick with him but can he do it from the outside alley?

Just outside of the single figure hopes are then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Pheidon ($11) and the fourth emergency Real Love ($11) who the bookies are taking no chances with.

Tommy Berry has the ride on Al Maher four-year-old Pheidon who comes off a second behind Zabisco in the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m) at Sandown from November 15.

Real Love meanwhile is unlikely to make the field needing four scratchings to make the cut but the Adam Durrant-trained Desert King mare has the form to be competitive if by miracle she started.

She was runner-up to Balmont Girl in the Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) and third to Respondent in the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) during the autumn and comes off a second to Black Heart Bart in the Listed Carbine Club of WA Stakes (1400m) on Railway Stakes Day.
