Which Horse Will Win The Kingston Town Classic

The best way to pick who will win the Kingston Town Classic is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Favourites – Between the years of 2000-2017, eight favourites have gone on to win the race, meaning favourites have won almost half the time in recent history.
  • The double –  Western Australia’s big double is the Railway Stakes – Kingston town Classic. If a horse wins the Railway Stakes, keep an eye on it if it’s entered into this race.
  • Racetrack advantage – All winners going back as far as 1993 have just come off a race at Ascot before winning this race. Be wary of East Coasters or Internationals with no experience at Ascot.

Kingston Town Classic Favourites

Early favourites include Tuscan Queen, Tally, Pacodali and Gailo Chop.
