A good barrier draw will assist Champagne...
Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller is hoping for a change of luck for All Our Roads at today’s barrier draw for the Group 1 $1m Magic Millions-Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot in Perth on Saturday.
All Our Roads did it tough last start from barrier fourteen when ninth, only two and a half lengths behind the winner, Great Shot in the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot on November 25.
“If he can get a better draw I’m sure he will go well,” Waller told AAP.
Michael Walker takes over from Craig Williams on All Our Roads who has had four starts for the Waller stable after having done his early racing in New Zealand.
All Our Roads’ other run at Group 1 level for Waller saw the six year old set the pace from the inside barrier before finishing fourth to stablemate Shillelagh in Group 1 $1m Kennedy Mile (1600m) at Flemington on November 4, the first day of the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Waller will also saddle up the consistent Tom Melbourne and English import Life Less Ordinary in the fifteen horse Kingston Town Classic field.
Tom Melbourne has been placed six times from seven starts for Waller and will be ridden again by Damian Oliver who was aboard last start for a third to Great Shot in the Railway Stakes.
Hong Kong based Douglas Whyte is booked to ride Life Less Ordinary who is coming off a last start second to Odeon in the Listed $150,000 James Boag’s Premium Stakes (1800m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.
Tom Melbourne is on the fourth line of betting at $8.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au for the Kingston Town Classic behind the Darren Weir trained Black Heart Bart who heads the market order at $3.50 while Life Less Ordinary is marked at $11 and All Our Roads is listed as a $17 chance.
