Continuing the elite level action of this season’s Perth Summer Racing Carnival, the weight-for-age $1 million Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) runs this weekend with a capacity field limit of 30 runners.

There are currently 79 official entries and the futures Kingston Town Classic betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have Iffraaj stallion Magic Artist as the one to beat at $3.60.

Prepared by Andreas Wohler the five-year-old could be WA bound after back-to-back Group 1 fourths at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The first saw him cross just a length off the now 2015 Hong Kong Cup-bound French raider Gailo Chop in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) on Derby Day before his run just seven days later when 1.25 lengths off Turn Me Loose in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m).

Following closely in all-in Kingston Town betting is then Grant Williams’ top local hope, four-year-old Al Maher mare Delicacy.

She has won six of her dozen Ascot runs and is a dual Group 1 winner in Adelaide having completed the Schweppes Oaks (2000m) – SA Derby (2500m) double back in May.

First-up this campaign she ran third in the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) before a disappointing sixth to Chris Waller’s Sydney visitor Good Project last time out on November 21 in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m), a race that has produced three of the past four Kingston Town Classic winners.

Equal $5 third picks are then the fellow Williams-trained Perfect Reflection and Real Love for Adam Durrant.

Lightly-raced More Than Ready filly Perfect Reflection is looking to join Playing God (2010) and Ihtsahymn (2013) as the recent three-year-olds to win the classic and retain her undefeated record.

She is four-from-four and two-from-two at the track following her recent Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 WA Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m) wins at Ascot this preparation.

Stallions and geldings have dominated the Kingston Town Classic with no female galloper having beaten home the boys since St. Clemens Belle won for the mares as a four-year-old back in 1999.

Real Love is out to break the drought in 2015, Durrant’s Desert King five-year-old having won this year’s Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m), on the back of a disappointing Railway Stakes seventh.

The last of the current single figure Kingston Town hopes is then Vaughn Sigley’s flying Blackfriars gelding Black Heart Bart ($8) who has won three of his four runs since early October.

He beat Magnifisio (2nd) and Delicacy (3rd) home two back to win the Lee Steere Stakes before crossing two and a half lengths away fourth in a credible Railway Stakes run.

Just longer in the markets are other livewire chances including Williams’ last start Carbine Club of WA Stakes winning mare Neverland ($11), the Paula Wagg-trained Railway Stakes third placegetter Balmont Girl ($15) and Daniel Morton’s Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) winning three-year-old Man Booker ($15).

Stay tuned for the official Kingston Town Classic 2015 field and barriers out later in the week.
