The Kingston Town is one of only three Group 1 races in WA, and many may see this as the most important.  The race was first run as the Marlboro 50,000 in 1976 when won by that wonderful galloper, Family Of Man.  He won it again in 1978, and of course the great Kingston Town won the race in 1982.  Vo Rogue and Better Loosen Up were to win the race, and in 1995 it was to become the Fruit 'n' Veg Stakes, a name it retained until 2007 when it was renamed the Kingston Town.  It is always a good race, and this year's field is a good one, albeit largely a field of local horses.  Trap For Fools is the big eastern States name, and he is a real chance with his recent form.  I give him a chance, but think he may not quite be the right type for the race.

My main chances are Arcadia Queen and Perfect Jewel.  Both have dosage profiles that match recent winners.  So too does Galaxy Star who I expect to run a bold race at long odds.  Interestingly, Perfect Jewel and Galaxy Star are by Redoute's Choice out of full sisters in Star Encounter and Galaxy Star, both daughters of Melbourne Cup winner, Jeune.  Trap For Fools and Star Exhibit are both runners with a dosage index close to last year's winner, Pounami, and probably should not be discounted.  However, this was the only winner in this range until we get back to True Steel in 2003, so it is possible we may have to wait a while until we see another winner in this range.
