Kingston Town Classic 2016 Tips & Odds Update

The 2016 Kingston Town Classic brings Group 1 racing to a close in Australia for the year at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse on Saturday and below are our insider betting tips and selections on the weight-for-age feature.

Running as Ascot Race 8 at 5:00pm (WA time), the $1 million Group 1 Peters Investments Kingston Town Classic (1800m) field still features all 16 of its original final acceptors.

Heading the Kingston Town Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au – who are offering Odds Boost Extra on the race – is last year’s winner Perfect Reflection ($4) who is out to be the seventh favourite in 11 years to get the job done for the punters.

No four-year-old mare has won the race however since St. Clemens Belle (1999) giving the last start Railway Stakes third placegetter a hoodoo to overcome on the weekend.

All but one of the past 10 Kingston Town Classic winners started at single-figures and along with the Grant & Alana Williams-trained Perfect Reflection there are three other hopes under $10 for the win this Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

Her biggest dangers according to the bookies are Lindsey Smith’s Railway Stakes winner Scales Of Justice ($4.80) after his fourth win on the trot, the Kiwi galloper Kawi ($5) who will appreciate weight-for-age and the 1800m this weekend and Dwayne Dunn’s mount Tradesman ($9.50).

So will the best in betting get the final Group 1 trophy or will we see an upset Kingston Town Classic result for the first time in a few years from the likes of last year’s Railway Stakes winner Good Project ($14) for Chris Waller or the rails-drawn fellow interstate raider Stratum Star ($12) for Darren Weir?

Earlier we published our exclusive 2016 Kingston Town Classic Form Guide & Preview and based on the facts and stats uncovered there we have the best tips on the year’s final Group 1.

1st

#10 Scales Of Justice ($4.80)

We’re following the Railway Stakes form into the Kingston Town Classic this year, that race serving as the best lead-up in recent history. The double was last achieved by Sniper’s Bullet (2009) and nothing suggests that this progressive four-year-old can’t be the next. He ran away by nearly three lengths in his first Group 1 test last time out over the mile. He’s yet to be tested over further than 1600m, but his emphatic winning margin there suggests he’ll eat up the 1800m with two weeks between runs. He is rock hard fit and chasing four straight wins at his pet track (6-4-2-0). Weight-for-age is a test as he goes up from 53kg to 58.5kg, but so many of them are in the same boat. Douglas Whyte retains the ride and the Hong Kong hoop saluted aboard Moriarty (2014) in this race two years ago. He has never run worse than third and is worth tipping at the current price.

2nd

#1 Good Project ($14)

Waller chases his second Kingston Town Classic win in three years and this horse looks overs in betting. He won the Railway last year and crossed second in the same race this season. Tipping the same quinella on Saturday with Good Project again a danger at a track he obviously enjoys racing at. Hugh Bowman stays on and think he could be peaking here. Has raced against the best and is never disgraced. Danger.

3rd

#16 Perfect Reflection ($4)

She rounded out the Railway Stakes trifecta and we’re saying it’ll be the same result on the weekend. History is against her somewhat to defend her Kingston Town title, but she is a must include in all exotics based on the gun gate (2), William Pike being aboard, her killer record at Ascot (6-4-0-2) and the fact she’s proven at these metres.

Whether you’re backing or sacking our 2016 Kingston Town Classic tips make sure you lock in the guaranteed best odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au this weekend!
