Andrews Hoping For a Lucky Kingston Town Classic

Luckygray heads the racing betting for the Kingston Town Classic at 3.2 in the race set to be run at Ascot in Perth over 1800 metres on December 7.

The six-year old was a winner at the course last week when he landed the Group One Carlton Draught-Railway Stakes, holding off Platinum Rocker by just under a length.

Trevor Andrews' runner does enjoy running at Ascot as five of his eight career wins have come at the track.

Before his big race win at the weekend, he had not scored in 2013. His best attempt came at Moonee Valley where he finished fourth in the Group One Hacer Group William Reid Stakes behind Black Caviar. That was the penultimate outing in the Australian super mares' career.

Luckygray did score in last year's renewal of the Kingston Town Classic and will be now looking to follow in the footsteps of Playing God, Old Comrade and Summer Beau who have all won back-to-back runnings.

Mr Moet is next best in the racing live betting for the Group One at 5.5. Overall though, it has been a disappointing campaign so far in 2013 for the six-year old.

There were some signs of some old form on Saturday, as he got within just over two lengths of Luckygray at Ascot.

Fred Kersley's colt Ihtsahymn gets his first chance against the older horses. He has only seen a racecourse twice so far in his career and is 6.0 to prevail.

The three-year old made his debut at Ascot back in April where he ran green, finishing sixth at 13.0.  He did break his maiden recently at the same course though when scoring by a length in a Group Two at odds of 9.0.
