Antonio Giuseppe Horseform spearheads the stable’s charge, quoted as the $3.30 favourite.

Waller has won the past three Kingston Town Stakes renewals with He’s Your Man, Silverball Horseform and McCreery Horseform.

Chocante Horseform is another notable acceptor after placing behind Winx Horseform on resuming a fortnight ago at the course in the Chelmsford Stakes (1600m).

He has drawn barrier 3 and is the $3.60 second elect.

2017 KINGSTON TOWN STAKES: TIPS AND RACE PREVIEW

Classic Uniform and Harper's Choice prominent along with perhaps Chocante.

There looks to be a real sense of timing to ANTONIO GIUSEPPE Horseform third run from a spell following two respectable efforts behind his champion stablemate Winx in the Warwick Stakes and Chelmsford Stakes.

Stable have won the past three renewals of this race with He's Your Man (2014), Silverball (2015) and McCreery (2016). Suspect Antonio Giuseppe spearheads the charge.

CHOCANTE Horseform was huge behind Winx a fortnight ago when running third behind her in the Chelmsford Stakes. Beat Antonio Giuseppe by 1.4 lengths on that occasion however now meets him 2kg worse at the weights.

CLASSIC UNIFORM Horseform is racing consistently. Has a fitness edge over everything in this field which could see him fighting out the finish, particularly if afforded a soft time of things in front through the early and middle stages.

LIFE LESS ORDINARY Horseform another winning hope for Waller.

R8 RANDWICK 16 September 2017
Kingston Town Stakes 3U , 2000m
Race Synopsis: In a dominant result for the Chris Waller stable with first, second, third and fourth in this Group Three race, the Irish-bred stayer Libran scored a surprise win, his first success since winning the AJC Chairman’s Handicap (Gr 2, 2600m) at this track in April last year. He settled nicely in eighth place on the rails, got a split nearing the 200m, took the lead at the 100m and went on to win well. Antonio Giuseppe raced in seventh place, one off the rails, tracked up rounding the home turn, challenged at the 200m and then battled on well for second. The favourite Life Less Ordinary was a handy fifth, one off the rails. He moved up (deep) nearing the home turn, challenged at the 200m and then kept fighting on for third after seeming to have every chance. Who Shot Thebarman raced in sixth place on the rails, improved (between runners) coming to the home turn and kept plugging on well for (2.1 lengths) fourth in a sound second up effort.
