The Final Field and Barrier Draw has been released for the Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot and Inspirational Girl is the very solid favourite.
The in form mare is so hard in the market given her recent efforts and perhaps more telling is that Willie Pike let go of Arcadia Queen in the Mackinnon in preference for quarantine to be ready in time for this ride. She is favourite at $3.60 and hasn’t budged.
The Kingston Town winner from last year, Kay Cee, is at $5.50 on the second line of betting while there are thrill seekers out there because ‘Special K’ himself, Kementari, firmed a point to $13 fro $14.
Too Close The Sun, backing up from the Ascot Cup last Saturday, is at $6 and firmed a half point.
