The third and final Group 1 of the Perth Racing Carnival, the 2019 Kingston Town Classic sees a field of progressive middle-distance thoroughbreds looking to score some black type before the summer season hits.

Arcadia Queen was too good for them in 2018 and could return to score again.

The market suggested that Arcadia Queen was going to be tough to beat at the weights and that proved correct. The three-year-old, carrying just 50kg, hit the lead down the straight and quickly put the Group 1 field to bed.

Here's what we said about her chances.

"Arcadia Queen couldn't have been more impressive when taking out the Group 2 W.A Guineas last start at Ascot and we're predicting another top effort to come at Group 1 level in the Kingston Town Classic.

Trained by Grant and Alana Williams, the three-year-old filly will be giving away some experience to this field but she has won four of her five starts impressively and she will get a signficant weight advantage at the weight-for-age conditions.

We're expecting this to be the top ride for William Pike and we are not surprised to see her open as the short-priced favourite."

Arcadia Queen scored her fifth win from six starts with the Group 1 feature.
