Sentimental favourite The Cleaner remains the punters’ pick, and has firmed from $3.80 to $3.50 with after drawing barrier 8 for the $1 million Railway Stakes on Super Saturday at Ascot this weekend.


Local trainer Grant Williams prepares WA Derby winner Respondent, which drew the inside barrier and also came in from $5.50 to $4.80. However another Williams-trained runner Elite Bell is set to start from 16 and drifted from $7 to $10.


“After brave efforts in the Cox Plate and the Emirates Stakes punters feel this could be the race the Tasmanian star The Cleaner breaks through for a Group One win”, TAB’s Gerard Middleton said.


“And they have a right to be confident in trainer Mick Burles – in its last 7 starts over the mile the gelding has won 4 and hasn’t finished out of the placings.”


The Neville Parnham-trained Bass Strait has been a significant mover since its win in the RJ Peters Stakes at Ascot last weekend over 1,500 metres. The five-year old gelding has gone from $15 into $9 after drawing barrier 3.


Of the outsiders, 2012 winner Mr Moet attracted a bet of $999 at $21 and firmed to $18 before drifting back to the $21 mark after drawing barrier 14, while Ranger will start from 5 and moved from $41 to $26.


The barrier draw for the Winterbottom Stakes takes place at 8pm tonight (AEDT). The money continues to flow for Angelic Light which is the $2.90 favourite.


In the Sky Racing WA Guineas, the unbeaten Disposition will start from barrier 2 and is a raging $2 favourite.
