Local galloper The Velvet King is the $6.00 equal favourite for Saturday’s Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot.

Trained by Darren McAuliffe, four-year-old gelding The Velvet King is the early co-favourite for the Railway Stakes. Two starts ago he won the Group 3 Northerly Stakes (1400m) before finishing third, beaten 0.52 lengths by Star Exhibit in the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m).

Tellem We’re Comin for Grant & Alana Williams is also $6.00 with the five-year-old gelding building a nice record of eight wins from 17 starts. The gelding has won his past two at Listed level by more than 2.5 lengths on each occasion. 

At $8.00 is the Chris Gangemi-trained four-year-old gelding Samizdat. A winner of five races from eight starts, Samizdat won the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) by 1.52 lengths over Regal Power who is a $9.00 chance. 


Regal Power is another Grant & Alana Williams runner with the gelding winning the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) back in April. 

Best Of Days represents Godolphin trainer James Cummings. The six-year-old gelding was fifth in the Group 1 Cantala Stakes (1600m) last start. He was also third in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m). 

It is a wide-open edition of the Railway Stakes with the outsider of the field being Platoon at $34.
