2010 Carlton Draught Railway Stakes Final Field

November 16th, 2010

The top four placegetters from last year’s Railway Stakes headline the final field for the $1 million feature after the list of acceptors were released for this year’s showdown yesterday, the 2010 Railway Stakes taking place at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday November 20.

The 2010 Carlton Draught Railway Stakes (1600m) final field features the horses that ran the First 4 in the Perth Summer Racing Carnival feature 12 months ago including winner Sniper’s Bullet.

Colour Correct has opened as the Railway Stakes favourite – Check odds at Luxbet now!

Sniper’s Bullet will attempt back-to-back Railway Stakes wins with jockey Nash Rawiller in the mount once again.

Tarzi, Colour Correct and Grand Nirvana all return to the track as well after finishing second, third and fourth respectively behind Sniper’s Buller last year.

The Ross Price-trained Colour Correct has opened as the early favourite in the online betting markets for the Railway Stakes following a sensational spring that has included wins in the Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) and Ascot Gold Cup (1800m).

Other early favourites include John Thompson’s improving Sydney galloper Trusting and upset winner of the Lee Steere Stakes Famous Roman who stands a good chance dropping back to 54kg for the Railway after carrying a hefty 59kg to victory last start.

Meanwhile other notable runners in the Railway Stakes field this year include veteran seven-year-old Black Piranha, the Neville Parnham-trained God Has Spoken who snuck into the race after winning the R.J. Peters Stakes last weekend and quality four-year-old mare Impressive Jeuney, all at generous early odds online.
