Railway Stakes 2021 – Race Tips with Punters Predictor

We used the Punters Predictor to prepare the form of the Railway Stakes (1600m), the first of three G1s to be held in Perth over the next three weeks.

Available on the Punters website and app, in all Australian race each day, the Predictor uses a number of form factors as part of an algorithm to determine the most likely winner of each race.

With 18 form factors to choose from, bettors can pick the ones that are most important to them and weight them accordingly.

Predictor of railway issues G1


Weight 65%

Since the railroad is a handicap with up to 5kg between the top and bottom weights, it’s clearly worth considering this metric.

Barrier 65%

Week after week I talk about the importance of luck in running, especially in big races. Considering that there is a field of 16 in the railroad this week, a good barrier could play a huge role in whether a horse gets the right run or not.

Career success rate 50%, career place rate 50%

It is a large field filled with quality West Australians, all of whom can participate in a race on their day. But these factors can help find which one is the most consistent – who has “their day” most often?

Career Silver Prize 50%, Average Silver Prize 50%

I like price metrics as a quick way to sort suitors from suitors. I opted for 50% for the career and 50% for the average because I want to recognize the work of the old warhorses at the top of the weights, but at the same time I don’t want to punish the less run horses for not having you might as well go around the block.

Jockey 70%

This is one thing – the William Pike factor. He’s the best jockey in WA and consistently gets the best rides. There is a saying that you don’t need to fill out the form in Perth because “Pikey” does it for you!

This distance 60%

We’ve used the prize money metrics to determine which horses are in the best shape, but it’s a question of which horses are specialists at a mile.

Good trail 75%

Ascot was rated 4 vouchers on Wednesday morning and there is virtually no rain forecast for the remainder of the week. Combined with Perth’s warm weather at this time of year, this is almost certain to be a good trail.


Western Empire (16) is the first choice 100%. Iffraaj’s son won four consecutive black type races to complete his 3-year campaign, from 1600m to 2400m of the Derby G2 WATC. He came back in the spring with a dominant victory in the G3 Asian Beau over 1400m and should do a better mile. He drew perfectly in Barrier 3, wears the minimum weight of 53kg and gets the combination of owner (Peters Investments), trainer (Grant and Alana Williams) and jockey (William Pike) who has won this race for the past three years. .

Kissonallforcheeks (10) is next at 75%. The Written Tycoon mare won 2 out of 4 this preparation, including last week in the G3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) where she overcame a difficult race in transit. Her only bad run this campaign was when she finished 6.27L behind Western Empire in the Asian Beau, and she meets him here on the same weight scale (both carrying 1kg lighter on Saturday). However, she started the $ 2.05F on this occasion and, instead of leading like she did that day, will be able to get a smooth run behind the leaders from the inside barrier.

Dance music (4) completes the first three at just 66%. Since finishing 13th in this race last year, the War Chant mare has been in formidable shape, not missing a spot in her next nine starts – all in black type races. This form race included victory at Listed level over 1600m, and twice at G3 level – over 1400m and 1800m. She will have her work cut out for her from a horror print (15), but we know what they say about fit mares …
