Tuscan Queen draws well in 16-strong line-up for Kingston Town Classic

Four eastern states-trained runners are among a field of 16 for the final Group 1 race of the year, the Kingston Town Stakes (1800m) at Ascot on Saturday.

Tally and Best Of Days represent Godolphin and trainer James Cummings in Saturday's $1 million, 1800m-race in Perth, while Gailo Chop and Pacodali run for Warrnambool trainers Matthew Williams and Lindsey Smith respectively.

Best Of Days is the most favoured of the quartet in the betting having got an inside draw in barrier 2, ahead of Pacodali (barrier 13), Tally (barrier 8) and Gailo Chop (barrier 12).



But three-year-old filly Tuscan Queen was favoured by bookmakers to give connections of last year's winner Arcadia Queen back-to-back victories, and she remains a strong favourite after landing an ideal barrier in gate 3.

Tuscan Queen is owned by Perth businessman Bob Peters and trained by Grant and Alana Williams who will also be represented by Regal Power and Superstorm in Saturday's race.

Last year's winning jockey Willie Pike rides Tuscan Queen following her win in the Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m) on November 16 at her fourth race start.
