This Saturday November 20 Ascot Racecourse will host WA’s richest race of the year, the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m), and betting markets and odds are now out for the highly anticipated showdown.
Local galloper Colour Correct, who finished third to Sniper’s Bullet in the Railway Stakes last year, is the pronounced favourite to win the feature this time round.
Six-year-old High Yield gelding Colour Correct has been in career best form this preparation winning the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) and the Listed Gold Cup (1800m) at their past two starts and after drawing well with barrier seven, is the $4.80 favourite in the 2010 Railway Stakes odds at Luxbet.
Sydney raider Trusting is the second favourite in the Railway Stakes betting, the John Thompson-trained four-year-old paying $6.50 and set to start from barrier five with James Winks aboard.
Defending champion Sniper’s Bullet is currently the only other Railway Stakes runner at single figure odds to win at Luxbet, the veteran seven-year-old a slight drifter now paying $9 after opening at $8.
Sniper’s Bullet has a poor barrier 15 draw and also faces a tough test allocated 58kg for Saturday, having to set a weight-carrying record to win.
Other horses in the Railway Stakes field at the top of the betting are God Has Spoken and Famous Roman both paying $10.
Neville Parnham’s well-bred Blackfriars four-year-old God Has Spoken is coming off a brave win in the R.J. Peters Stakes at Ascot last Saturday and will jump from barrier nine, while Famous Roman is seeking a hat trick of wins here most recently winning the Lee Steere Stakes on November 6.
