A host of local hopes will converge at Ascot on Saturday for the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic over 1800m. Western Australia’s favourite galloper Luckygray has his chance to win back-to-back Kingston Towns after a huge win in last month’s Railway Stakes. Luckygray proved he is a different horse when he races in the west after failing to register a win over a lengthy Spring Carnival campaign. He returned to Perth in emphatic fashion swooping down the outside to pip Platinum Rocker on the line to win Perth’s richest race.

Mr Moet also returned in the Railway following a spring campaign and flew home to finish in seventh position. He is one contender that will appreciate the extra 200 metres and can improve considerably on his Railway performance. Running in his fourth Kingston Town, 2010-11 winner Playing God ran into a credible fifth placing in the Railway and is another local hope who can feature heavily on Saturday when he steps up in distance.

Mr Moet had no luck at the barrier draw getting the outside gate in his final race before transferring to Chris Waller's stable in Sydney, while Playing God is next to him in 10. Luckygray nabbed seven while impressive three-year-old Ihtsahynm will jump from gate two.
