2010 Kingston Town Classic Betting & Odds Update

November 24th, 2010

The updated odds for the 2010 Kingston Town Classic following the recent Ascot Summer Racing Carnival results have been released at bookmakers around Australia with Famous Roman firming into the favourite to win the Group 1 feature on Saturday December 4.

The $500,000 Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) is shaping up as a close and competitive showdown and Jim Taylor’s in-form six-year-old Famous Roman has shortened in from their original $10 quote to the $6 favourite at leading online bookie Luxbet.

Famous Roman ran an eye-catching second to Gathering in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot last Saturday November 20th, showing the entire had lost none of his spark after winning the Group 3 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m) earlier in the month.

Sydney raider Gathering, who scored an upset win in the Railway Stakes, is now the close $7 second favourite in the 2010 Kingston Town Classic odds along with WA Guineas winner Playing God.

The biggest mover in the market, Gathering opened as a $31 chance before his gallant Railway Stakes win.

Horses that have drifted right out in the Kingston Town Classic markets include defending champion Sniper’s Bullet ($7.50 – $9), beaten Railway Stakes favourite Colour Correct ($8.50 – $17) and Chris Waller’s Sydney galloper Triple Honour ($8.50 – $18) after all three failed to make an impression in the Railway Stakes finishing 13th, 11th and 15th respectively.

A great value early pick in the Kingston Town Classic odds is the Albie Beckett-trained Megatic paying $31 to win and $8.50 to place at Luxbet despite finishing a strong third in the Railway.
