Libran Set To Defend His Kingston Town Crown

12th September, 2018

Libran shareowners will be hoping lightning can strike twice on Saturday as their stalwart looks to defend his title in the The Agency Real Estate Kingston Town Stakes (Group 3) after winning the race impressively last year for connections. 

Libran posted an equal career high mark a fortnight ago in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes when clocking the fastest 600m and final 200m sectionals of the race, to suggest he has come back better than ever when running the highly touted Unforgotten to within a length and a half. The drop in the class and distance increase to 2000m will only enhance Libran's chances as he takes on some smart upcoming middle distances horses in Avilius and I Am Serious.  

Chris Waller and his team couln't be happier with Libran heading into the race, although the stall 18 certainly isn't helping his chances. Although the addition of Hugh Bowman into the irons will be a huge plus after steering Winx home earlier in the day!

"His work continues to be at a high level, he worked very strongly this morning when galloping over 1000m and he finished off well in preparation for his race this Saturday." Chris Waller 

Wishing Libran's shareowners and connections all the very best of luck on Saturday!
