Kingston Town Classic 2016 Betting Update

Last year’s winner Perfect Reflection has retained her spot at the top of the 2016 Kingston Town Classic betting markets for her title defence on Saturday after a gun barrier two draw.

A final field of 16 weight-for-age runners are in the mix for this year’s $1 million Group 1 Peters Investments Kingston Town Classic (1800m) including the Grant & Alana Williams-trained mare Perfect Reflection.

She leads betting on the staying clash at $4.20 through Ladbrokes.com.au as the now four-year-old daughter of More Than Ready and jockey William Pike chase back-to-back wins in the race.

Last Perth Summer Racing Carnival she saluted for the punters from barrier 12 of 16, but should have things easier with gate two on the weekend.

The barrier last produced a winner in Ihtsahymn (2013) and that Fred Kersley-trained galloper is also back on Saturday paying $34 to win from gate 13.

Perfect Reflection won the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) two starts back before a third to Scales Of Justice in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) a fortnight ago.

The Railway Stakes winner Scales Of Justice is the early Kingston Town Classic market mover, the Lindsey Smith-trained Not A Single Doubt four-year-old backed in from $6 to $5.

He has drawn the far outside alley (16) and is looking to be just the second winner from that alley in over 30 years joining Sniper’s Bullet (2009).

Scales Of Justice may not have been the big winner in the Kingston Town Classic barrier draw, but he has won his past three on the trot and has killer form at the track (6-4-2-0) ahead of his first run over further than 1600m.

Also well-supported at $5.50 is Kawi, the Kiwi raider in barrier four with Michael Walker riding once again.

Walker road the Allan Sharrock-trained Savabeel six-year-old for his Australian debut when fourth to Perfect Reflection in the Lee Steere and then again in the Railway Stakes when sixth.

Sharrock knew the mile and handicap conditions of the Railway Stakes weren’t in his horse’s favour and at weight-for-age over 1800m the Group 1 winner can return to his best form.

The last of the single-figure fancies at $9 is Tradesman coming off a third in the Lee Steere and fifth in the Railway Stakes.

Just one Kingston Town Classic winner in the past decade has saluted in an upset with Playing God ($21 in 2011).

Of the double-figure fancies in the mix this summer the most likely dangers shape up as the Darren Weir-trained Stratum Star ($12), the Chris Waller-trained Mackintosh ($12) and his stablemate Good Project ($14) who won last year’s Railway Stakes here before a second in the same race last start.
