Having returned to racing in great condition this time in, classy Team Hawkes-trained runner La Amistad has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite for success in the 2014 Kingston Town Stakes, currently available at odds of $2.80 with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Securing five wins and three minor places from just 12 competitive starts so far, La Amistad steadily built to the task over five starts through the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival, overcoming two somewhat forgettable starts with three impressive victories back-to-back, including the Listed WJ McKell Cup (2400m) on May 24th.

Charging home to finish a credible third in the Listed Rowley Mile (1600m) on August 21st, the Redoute’s Choice mare will leave from the ideal barrier 4 and is more than worth consideration for a Kingston Town Stakes bet.

Confirmed to target the Cups through the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival, Greatwood is yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success this weekend, but has maintained status as outright second-favourite for the 2014 Kingston Town Stakes, currently available at $4.60 odds.

Beginning his racing tenure under the guidance of leading European trainer Luca Cumani before transferring to the care of Gai Waterhouse at the conclusion of 2013, Greatwood is a strong and consistent racehorse, having claiming two wins and six minors from just ten starts.

Running on to finish third amongst classy company in the Canterbury Hurlstone RSL Handicap (1400m) on August 16th, the Manduro gelding charged home to secure a maiden Australian win in the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) at Rosehill Gardens on August 30th, but will have to overcome the wide and awkward barrier 12 if to continue his good run of form through the 2014 Kingston Town Stakes.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently offered at odds of less-than $10 for success in the 2014 Kingston Town Stakes, He’s Your Man will also have to deal with a wide gate this weekend, but is a particularly good chance of justifying $2.20 odds to run a place.

Claiming three wins and six minor places from 16 starts so far, He’s Your Man has finished outside the places just twice since arriving in Australian from his native France at the conclusion of 2013.

Returning to the track in blistering form this time in, He’s Your Man finishing third in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) first-up on July 5th, the Cape Cross gelding charged home to win the Listed Winter Challenge (1500m) on August 2nd; running on to claim third in the Premier’s Cup last time out.

Confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Hugh Bowman, He’s Your Man is more than worth consideration for a Kingston Town Stakes bet at current odds.
