Victoria’s leading trainer, Darren Weir, is aiming for consecutive wins in Saturday’s Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) with Black Heart Bart heading a field of 15.

Weir claimed his first win in the $1 million feature last year with Stratum Star, and following a fast-finishing 2nd in the Railway Stakes (1600m) a fortnight ago, Black Heart Bart aims for his sixth win at elite level. 

Railway Stakes winner Great Shot is also set to contest the final Group 1 race of the year but will meet Black Heart Bart 5.5kg worse at the weights under weight-for-age condtions.

Sydney trainer Chris Waller will saddle up three runners including Railway Stakes 3rd placegetter Tom Melbourne, All Our Roads who finished 2.5 lengths away in 9th, and Cup Day Plate (1800m) runner-up Life Less Ordinary.

Local trainers Grant and Alana Williams also have three runners in the feature, and gun hoop William Pike sticks with WA Guineas (1600m) winner Perfect Jewel who will carry just 50kg.
