Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:40) John Moule BM70 (1400m)
#4 – Minouche @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The James Cummings-trained filly has made a good start to her career with a win and two minor placings.
She is a daughter of Written Tycoon who scored at Newcastle before finishing second at Caulfield last start, so having experience on the track is ideal.
Damien Oliver rides and punters get fair odds.
Race 2. (13:15) Robert Hunter BM70 (1800m)
#11 – Worthily @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Worthily is a former European who finished eighth on debut at Flemington and improvement is expected.
The five-year-old was only three lengths behind the winner and anything close to that form should see him winning.
His opening odds of $2.80 have been taken, so he should be tough to hold out.
Race 3. (13:50) Neds Bet Live BM78 (2400m)
#2 – Dirty Deeds @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dirty Deeds is a smart type on his day, as he showed when winning at Caulfield two starts back.
The five-year-old son of Dundeel scored easily by 2.3 lengths, and although beaten last start, he wasn’t facing an easy field.
This looks like an ideal target and punters get $5.50, which is well worth snapping up.
Race 4. (14:25) Lamaro’s Hotel Chairman’s Stakes (1000m)
#4 – Renosu @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old colt finished third on debut at Caulfield before improving to run second at Flemington by a nose behind Brereton.
He is a son of Exceed and Excel who won a recent jumpout and his turn-of-foot could be enough to see him winning on Saturday.
Oliver rides and that’s a good sign.
Race 5. (15:05) Ive Print Manfred Stakes (1200m)
#6 – Unflinching @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Unflinching faces his toughest test by some margin, but we have been impressed with the son of I Am Invincible.
The three-year-old colt won by 2.8 lengths at Moonee Valley last start, making him unbeaten after three career starts.
Facing Paulele and Generation isn’t easy, but he’s up and running, so the fitness edge is on his side.
Race 6. (15:45) Herald Sun BM78 (1400m)
#4 – Takissacod @ $26 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Takissacod, who finished third at Flemington behind Stay Gold last time out.
There is nothing wrong with that form and the daughter of Chat Up Line is a six-time winner from 27 starts, so she has the experience edge.
Most of her form has come at lower levels, but we can’t turn down the $26 available.
Race 7. (16:25) Mal Seccull BM100 (1800m)
#1 – Dark Dream @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dark Dream scored a long overdue win at Flemington last start and we like his chances of kicking on with it.
The seven-year-old son of All American has finished in the money in 19 of his 35 starts, so he’s consistent enough to give them something to worry about.
The odds are worth taking.
Race 8. (17:05) Quayclean BM78 (1100m)
#11 – The Garden @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding returns after a successful first campaign, which included three wins and two placings from six starts.
He scored at Sandown two back before finishing fourth behind Sirileo Miss at Sandown, so the form checks out.
Barrier 14 isn’t ideal over the distance, but keep him safe.
Race 9. (17:40) Premier Signs BM78 (1600m)
#2 – Tuvalu @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tuvalu owns four wins and two second placings from six starts, including an easy 3.5-length win at Warrnambool fresh up.
It was a good hit-out to prepare for the harder races and punters get better odds than the $1.28 offered on that occasion.
$2 is a fair price for a smart gelding.
