Caulfield horse racing tips

Race 1. (12:05) Thomas North Handicap (1200m)

#6 – Maximillius @ $2.50 – Bet @ Neds

Maximillius wasn’t too far behind some smart types on debut at Flemington and running around a corner could help.

The two-year-old colt has been well-backed to score after opening at $2.60, so that’s a good sign and he is bred to show early speed.

We would watch for any late betting moves.

Race 2. (12:40) Selangor Turf Club BM78 (1600m)

#4 – White Hibiscus @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds

White Hibiscus scored a win at Sandown three back and anything close to that win would be enough to see her winning.

The five-year-old daughter of Animal Kingdom comes off a tidy second placing at Ballarat and there are no superstars in this race, so she could take advantage.

Her best form comes over the distance and she has upside.

Race 3. (13:15) JRA BM78 (1100m)

#3 – Little Stevie @ $6.50 – Bet @ Neds

Little Stevie has yet to win at Caulfield from five attempts, but the speedy mare went close last time out.

The daughter of Dream Ahead ran second behind Clemenceau and we expect that form to hold up nicely this season.

Drawing barrier three with a 2kg claimer in the saddle only adds to her appeal, so take the each-way odds available.

Race 4. (13:50) Rod Fenwick BM78 (1200m)

#6 – Blaze a Trail @ $6.50 – Bet @ Neds

Blaze a Trail is an enigmatic runner but the Sydney-based runner could fire up in a fresh state.

The four-year-old son of Criterion is a two-time fresh up winner and he will appreciate the firmer track conditions after flopping in the heavy last start.

Punters get fantastic value odds of $6.50 and those are worth snapping up with two hands.

Race 5. (14:25) Ian Miller BM100 (1100m)

#11 – Starry Legend @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds

Starry Legend showed his best form when scoring at Sandown last start and we think he could win again.

The three-year-old faces a harder field this time in, but the son of Zoustar comes off a two-length win and there was class to be seen.

Dropping to 51.5kg is ideal and that should make him tough to handle.

Race 6. (15:00) Darren Gauci Handicap (1200m)

#2 – Clemenceau @ $2 – Bet @ Neds

Clemenceau owns four consecutive wins after beating a talented field at Caulfield last start and he’s a nice type in the making.

The three-year-old put 2.8 lengths on Little Stevie and he could mature into a group-level runner, so there is plenty of upside to the favourite.

Getting $2 is a fair price given his form, so put him on top.

Race 7. (15:40) Take It to Neds Level BM100 (1600m)

#8 – Uncle Bryn @ $2.10 – Bet @ Neds

Uncle Bryn is a former European who finished third at Sandown in his Australian debut before winning at Sale last start.

The four-year-old gelding scored impressively by four lengths and that suggests he’s good enough to rise through the grades with ease.

There are some smart stayers in this field but he’s up and running and dropping in distance shouldn’t hurt his chances.

Race 8. (16:20) Magic Millions National Sale (2000m)

#1 – Pretty Amazing @ $10 – Bet @ Neds

We’re prepared to take the value odds for Pretty Amazing, who didn’t fire at Newcastle last time out but she’s better than that.

The Chris Waller-trained filly won three of her first four starts, including an open-class victory at Goulburn.

There is some trepidation in betting markets but she’s a runner worth following at the odds.

Race 9. (16:53) Alex Butcher Memorial BM100 (2000m)

#9 – Flash Aah @ $4.40 – Bet @ Neds

Flash Aah had the right run to win last start but he had to settle for second. However, he could get back to winning form on Saturday.

The six-year-old won at Bendigo at $31 odds prior and he gets all favours off the inside draw with 55.5kg on his back.

Watch for any late betting movement as it’s likely to come.
