Fast ‘N’ Rocking’s Winterbottom Stakes Odd Drift

Fast ‘N’ Rocking has drifted out to 2015 Winterbottom Stakes odds of $5.50, but jockey Damian Lane remains confident that the talented sprinter can win his maiden Group 1 event at Ascot on Saturday as long as he receives luck in running.

It takes place as part of the Perth summer racing carnival and is run over a trip of 1500m. The race is a quality handicap and worth $150,000 to the winners. It is run alongside the WA Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m).

The RJ Peters Stakes is a solid race in its own right but also acts as crucial lead up to the Group 1 Railway Stakes held at Ascot a week later over a mile.

Much like the Railway is the logical follow on from here, before this event the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes is the best lead in.

For those capable of getting up in distance even further the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic could be a target over 1800m in December.

This race tends to be dominated by West Australian talent although occasionally an east coast raider may use it to get accustomed to Ascot before the Group 1.

Some top quality horses have won here including Vows in 1992, Jacks Or Better in 1997 and Northerly in 2000.

More recent RJ Peters Stakes winners include Modem in 2003, Elliotto in 2009, God Has Spoken in 2010 and Westriver Kevydonn in 2011.
