Only eight runners have been included in the final field for Saturday’s Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Silverball has found exceptional form upon resuming this time and has maintained status as clear favourite in 2015 Kingston Town Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au; currently available at a quote of $1.85 for success.
Posting six wins and seven minors through 23 career starts so far, Silverball was a typically consistent performer for trainer Chris Waller through the recent Autumn Carnival; claiming three wins in from five appearances including the Listed Lord Mayors Cup (2000m) on May 9th.
Running sixth in the Canterbury Hurlstone RSL Handicap (1400m) first-up this time, the Kahyasi gelding boxed on for a close second in the Listed Premiers’ Cup (1800m) a fortnight ago and will relish a step-up to 2000m this weekend.
Godolphin entrant Havana Cooler is yet to experience much attention in 2015 Kingston Town Stakes betting markets but remains sole occupant of the second line at a current quote of $6.50.
Beginning his career under the guidance of renowned Britain-based trainer Luca Cumani, the Hurricane Run gelding has claimed to two wins and five minors through only eleven competitive appearances so far.
Running sixth in his first start for John O’Shea on August 15th, Havana Cooler was unable to match the late pace in the Listed Wyong Cup (2080m) last week and finished at the tail of the field.
The Rosehill conditions should play into the strengths of Havana Cooler, who will be partnered by Hong Kong hoop Joao Moreira in the Kingston Town Stakes.
Maurus has not finished worse than second in six competitive starts this year and arguably offers punters the best value for money in 2015 Kingston Town Stakes betting markets at current $7.50 odds.
Running second in a pair of Sydney minors over 1800m and 2200m respectively in June, Maurus was returned for a brief spell after winning the Schweppes BM84 (1900m) at Rosehill on June 27th and returned to competition on September 2nd for success in the Cellarbrations BM75 (1900m).
Allocated the ideal barrier 2 and charged with carrying a very manageable 54.5kgs, Maurus will be partnered by in-form hoop Ryan Collett in the Kingston Town Stakes.
Market mover King Kinshasa ($8) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 Kingston Town Stakes betting markets.
