Godolphin trainer James Cummings says It's Somewhat is approaching his peak heading into Saturday's Group I Kingston Town Classic, which has been the sole aim since the import started his campaign in October.

It's Somewhat, 7.00 to win the Kingston Town Classic, began his spring preparation with an unplaced run in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) on 1st October, before two more Melbourne runs in which he finished third in the Group 2 Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley and the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

It's Somewhat then headed west and showed he has settled in well to his Perth surroundings with a trial win at Belmont on 27th November.

"He's really been targeted at this race for the entire campaign and we feel that he's building up to his peak for this preparation," Cummings said.

"He achieved a good result with his third in the Emirates Stakes at Flemington and the space between runs coming into this suits him, as he's proved in the past.

"He gets his opportunity here coming back to nine furlongs which is a distance he won over at weight-for-age in the Hollindale Stakes last winter.

"The team in Perth are really happy with the way he's settled in."

Champion jockey Brenton Avdulla will head west to ride It's Somewhat in the Kingston Town Classic.
