Railway Stakes 2020 Form Guide

The Railway Stakes form guide is all about following the strongest milers from the west of the country.

There's plenty of strong middle distance runners that have taken this event out before going on to compete in the east of the country. Scales Of Justice took out the 2016 Railway before heading across to Victoria to claim the 2019 Makybe Diva Stakes.

This race lends itself more to what's to come rather than being the peak of a horse's career.
