Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:10) Yulong Stud BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Evening Glory @ $6 – Bet @ Neds
Evening Glory has been threatening to win a race this preparation and he could get back to his best on Saturday.
The Freedman-trained son of Smart Missile comes off a third placing at Mornington behind Jump the Broom and that’s a solid form guide.
Barrier 14 isn’t ideal but having Jamie Kah in the saddle helps.
Race 2. (12:45) Blue Gum Farm Vobis Distaff (1400m)
#1 – Sirileo Miss @ $2.15 – Bet @ Neds
Sirileo Miss owns six wins from 12 starts, including a victory at Bendigo last time out.
The daughter of Pride of Dubai scored a dead-heat win last start and it was a good effort with only one run under her belt prior this campaign.
Having Damien Oliver riding is a bonus and punters get fair odds considering her ability.
Race 3. (13:20) The Vobis Sires Guineas (1600m)
#3 – Tobaysure @ $2.80 – Bet @ Neds
Tobaysure won easily last time out as the $1.55 favourite and punters get better odds this time around.
The Phillip Stokes-trained three-year-old had won by six lengths prior before losing by a nose at Sandown in a good form race.
We expect the $2.80 to shorten and he could start around $2.20 on race day.
Race 4. (14:00) Surewise Vobis Gold Heath (2000m)
#2 – Grandslam @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
Grandslam has class on his side, and despite being only a two-win runner, he has been facing tough fields.
The four-year-old comes off a third placing at Flemington behind Pondus, which is excellent form for this level of racing.
He should cross to the front from barrier 12 and be right around the mark.
Race 5. (14:40) Avenel Equine Hospital Dash (1100m)
#4 – Scissor Step @ $3.70 – Bet @ Neds
The Matthew Ellerton-trained gelding owns three wins and four placings from nine starts, so he doesn’t know how to run a bad race.
He comes off a win at Caulfield in fine style and he’s now a three-time winner at the distance, so he enjoys short-course racing.
Getting the inside draw is fine and he should sit close to the pace and kick strongly.
Race 6. (15:20) The Showdown (1200m)
#1 – Bello Beau @ $2.50 – Bet @ Neds
Bello Beau won his first three starts in Tasmania before getting no luck at Moonee Valley last time out.
The two-year-old son of Brazen Beau couldn’t get out, which is often the case at The Valley, but he should find room at Caulfield.
There has been solid betting support and we expect a bounce back effort.
Race 7. (15:55) Spendthrift Vobis Gold Sprint (1200m)
#2 – Shelby Sixtysix @ $6.50 – Bet @ Neds
Shelby Sixtysix continues to run at a high level and there is no reason why he couldn’t come to Melbourne and win.
The five-year-old son of Tornado couldn’t fire behind Nature Strip in the TJ Smith, but this is a big step blow that class.
Punters get value odds and they could firm on race day.
Race 8. (16:35) IRT Vobis Gold Mile (1600m)
#3 – Junipal @ $3.90 – BET NOW
Junipal is a class act on his day and we expect the six-year-old to return to form at Caulfield.
The son of Reset owns six wins and 10 placings from 27 starts and he has run well on this track, which bodes well.
It’s about time he showed his best form and this race is there for the taking.
Race 9. (17:10) Widden Stud Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m)
#9 – Extreme Warrior @ $2.10 – Bet @ Neds
Extreme Warrior didn’t fire at Flemington in the Coolmore, but the three-year-old colt look good prior when winning at Echuca and Caulfield.
The son of Extreme Choice is a speedy type on his day and that hasn’t been missed in betting markets.
He has been well-backed and we’re prepared to take anything around $2.
