1 – Gailo Chop – $51

Was in reasonable form in Melbourne earlier in the preparation but had a shocker first up out west in the Railway Stakes where he was caught wide the trip and dropped out around the turn. Has a better gate and setup here but this looks too tough at this stage for the ten-year-old.

2 – Trap For Fools – $91 πŸ’°

Loves it out west and has had two trials to keep him ticking over in preparation for this one. Will roll forward and make it a test from a long way out, and you could do worse than having a few dollars on him each way at the enormous price.

3 – Taxagano – $126

Hasn’t looked up to it this preparation, and with 50 starts under his belt, it’s tough to see where the improvement will come from.

4 – Too Close To The Sun – $9 πŸ‘€πŸ†πŸ’°

Very brave in the Railway Stakes, just getting run down by Inspirational Girl. The extra 200m will suit and he has to be a live chance, and is easy to have on your side at near double figures.

5 – Missile Launch – $301

The odds tell the tale, would have to start running now.

6 – Neufbosc – $31 πŸ’°

Taken an age to break his maiden in Australia but looked promising when winning the Carbine Club Of Australia Stakes last outing. Can be thrown in exotics.

7 – Platoon – $35

Has been reasonable this preparation but looks to be running into a few smart ones here.

8 – Cup Night – $31

Ran well in the Railway to finish midfield but the step up in distance is unknown, hard to see him winning this.

9 – Arctic Stream – $126

Would need to grow another leg to be in this.

10 – Uni Time – $27

Ran well to place in the Railway but would need to step up again here, with 6kg added to him this time around. Price is about right.

11 – Truly Great – $21

Another one that rises 6kg here from the Railway, and probably the weakest of the G&A Williams runners. Happy to be against him.

12 – Inspirational Girl – $2.60 πŸ‘€πŸ†πŸ’°

The best horse in the race and possibly the best horse in Western Australia at the moment. Won the Railway well but will have to go right back from barrier 18. It’s a question of what price you want to take, it looks a little short here for mine with the wide draw and poor record of Railway Stakes horses performing in the Kingston Town Classic.

13 – Kay Cee – $11 πŸ’°

Last year’s winner of this race isn’t quite in the same touch as 2019, but could challenge with a return to her best.

14 – Gemma’s Son – $34 πŸ’°

Had an unlucky run in the WA Guineas and can go in exotics at the big price.

15 – Dom To Shoot – $7.50 πŸ‘€πŸ†πŸ’°

Three-year-olds have a great record in this race and this galloper looks one of the better chances, running home strongly in the WA Guineas behind Watch Me Dance in a race where leaders dominated.

16 – Watch Me Dance – $10 πŸ’°

Had the perfect run in the WA Guineas and must be respected, can go in all exotics.

17e – Snickerdoodledandy – $41

May have peaked a few back when winning at Stakes level, price looks about right.

18e – Naughty By Nature – Scratched

19e – Western Empire – $12 πŸ‘€πŸ†πŸ’°

Looks unlikely to get a run but is in this up to his eyeballs if he gains a start. Flashed home late in the WA Guineas similar to Dom To Shoot, and will probably start a similar price if he somehow got into the field.
