Kingston Town Classic Form Guide & Tips


1. Gailo Chop ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet

Gailo Chop is well past his best and the proven weight-for-age performer shouldn’t come into calculations here.

2. Trap For Fools ($91) Bet @ Sportsbet

A Group 1 winner at its best but it hasn’t done much since. He has struggled in all three runs this preparation and winning this race doesn’t seem likely.

3. Taxagano ($126) Bet @ Sportsbet

Triple-figure odds available and with good reason. He has been found at in the top grades, so he should set his sights on something much easier.

4. Too Close The Sun (Best Bet – $9) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get excellent value for the gelding, which finished stoutly to run second in the Railway Stakes last start.

There is plenty to like about that performance and rising in distance won’t worry him. He won over 1800m two starts back, so the $9 is generous.

5. Missile Launch ($301) Bet @ Sportsbet

Big odds on offer for a runner that will be outclassed. Needs a serious amount of luck from a wide barrier as well.

6. Neufbosc ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

Returned to form with a gutsy win last start and that will give it confidence heading into this race. However, he faces a rise in class and he could struggle.

A first-four chance with the right run.

7. Platoon ($35) Bet @ Sportsbet

Second fresh-up but he has yet to fire in two subsequent runs. Tricky draw won’t help his cause, so leave him out of selections.

8. Cup Night ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

Far from the worst chance in this field and he hasn’t been too far behind the mark this season. Capable and it gets every chance off the inside draw.

9. Arctic Stream ($126) Bet @ Sportsbet

Big odds available and with every reason. Comes into this race off a third placing, but the rise in grade could be too much.

Unlikely to move much in the betting markets.

10. Uni Time ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet

Slowly getting better with every run this campaign. Talented at best and it has been respected in betting, but we can’t have him in selections.

He exceeded expectations last start but repeating that effort won’t be easy.

11. Truly Great (Best Roughie – $21) Bet @ Sportsbet

Lovely odds available for the son of Dundeel that owns six wins from 11 starts. Seventh last start in a similar race, but it didn’t get all favours.

The $21 is well worth taking.

12. Inspirational Girl ($2.45) Bet @ Sportsbet

The best horse in the race but she won’t have it easy from barrier 18. She will have to drop back and the pace of the race might not suit.

We respect her ability, but the odds are too short to enter our calculations.

13. Kay Cee ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet

She looked to be in for a successful campaign following a win two back, but she was disappointing last time out.

Punters get double-figure odds, so she enters first-four calculations. However, she needs to bounce back quickly.

14. Gemma’s Son ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet

A nice type on her day but this level of racing isn’t easy. We would want much bigger odds for the risk.

15. Dom To Shoot ($7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Another runner that is too short in the betting. The three-year-old gets in light on the weights at 52kg, but that’s our only positive.

He couldn’t get past Watch Me Dance last start, and Watch Me Dance is paying better odds.

16. Watch Me Dance (Best Each Way – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet

A value runner after beating some handy types last start, making it consecutive wins. She has a big future and carrying 50kg brings her into contention.

$10 is a good price and well worth taking.

17. Snickerdoodledandy ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet

Not much went right for her last start and it shouldn’t be completely discounted. Chance if she gets the breaks.

19. Western Empire ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to win a race from three attempts but he has been confidently backed at double-figure odds. An interesting runner that could threaten.
