Unibet – Race Comments and Selections:

Race 8:
ARCADIA QUEEN (15) Ran away with a win last run at this track but up against stronger competition here. Jockey William Pike and trainer Grant And Alana Williams deserve serious attention. Should go well. GALAXY STAR (12) Winner last run here and should get going late. Jockey Chris Parnham and trainer Grant And Alana Williams have shared plenty of success together. Suitably placed in this race. PERFECT JEWEL (14) Horse who will take all the beating today. Maybe like to see slightly better odds however is the one to beat. MATERIAL MAN (2) Races well second up winning 3 from 4 runs. Fought on gamely when winning two runs back at Belmont and will try to take advantage of the gate. Can win.
Selections: 15 Arcadia Queen, 12 Galaxy Star, 14 Perfect Jewel, 2 Material Man

Sportsbet – Race Comments and Selections:

Race 8:
ARCADIA QUEEN takes on the big league as she tries to become only the second 3YO filly to win this race. Expect she will sit just off a solid pace and with 50kg on her back and an explosive sprint it’s hard to see them holding her out. MATERIAL MAN was left in front a long way out in the Railway but fought tenaciously. Runner-up in this race last year, he gets his chance to go one better. PERFECT JEWEL was the eye-catcher powering late in the Railway and will be steaming home while GALAXY STAR is aiming to become first mare to win the Railway/Kingston Town double and she can do it.
Selections: 15. Arcadia Queen, 2. Material Man, 14. Perfect Jewel, 12. Galaxy Star

Betfair – Race Analysis & Selections:

Race 8:
The G1 Kingston Town Classic is the feature race and is a cracking edition. ARCADIA QUEEN was superb in the Guineas. She bounced onto the speed and ran away. Given Pike is riding at the weight tells you a lot. GALAXY STAR did a fantastic job to win the Railway Stakes from back in the field. She never runs badly. Just the barrier is a concern at this start. TRAP FOR FOOLS won a G1 a month ago. That was a surprise but all he needs is a quiet few sectionals. MATERIAL MAN was very brave in the Railway first up. Can only improve off that up in trip.
1. Arcadia Queen (5 stars)
2. Galaxy Star (4 stars)
3. Trap For Fools (3 stars)

Ladbrokes – Race Comments:

Race 8:
ARCADIA QUEEN Made it four wins from five starts winning the WA Guineas last start. This is her toughest test to date but looks right up to the task with just 50kg on her back. GALAXY STAR Maintained her superb record charging home late to win the Railway Stakes last start. Rise 4kg under the WFA scale but still the one to beat. MATERIAL MAN Finished runner-up in this race last year and looks right on target for another big run after finishing third in the Railway Stakes. Meets the winner better at the weights and is right in play fitter second-up. GATTING Won the Lee Steere resuming two back before chasing home Galaxy Star in the Railway Stakes. Meets that galloper worse at the weights but still a place chance peaking third-up.
