Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Martin Collins Polytrack BM100 (1000m)
#5 – Ashford Street @ $3.70 – Bet @ Neds
Ashford Street owns five wins and six placings from 16 starts and we think he could add another here.
The four-year-old son of Moshe placed at his only start at Caulfield and he owns three placings at the distance.
Dropping to 51.5kg is ideal and we have him on top.
Race 2. (12:25) Stow Storage Solutions Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Proud Conquest @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
Proud Conquest won on debut at Donald and it was an easy 2.8-length victory, so he should rise through the grades.
The two-year-old son of I Am Invincible showed good barrier pace and he’ll need it from barrier 11, but he could find the rails.
Punters get odds worth snapping up.
Race 3. (13:00) Lamaro’s Hotel Handicap (1600m)
#9 – Naval Seal @ $4.50 – Bet @ Neds
Naval Seal scored an emphatic maiden victory at Ballarat last start when winning by 5.5 lengths in heavy conditions.
He races on a firmer track here but the Chris Waller-trained son of Snitzel is a type that could rise through the grades.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and punters get fair odds.
Race 4. (13:35) Rod Griffiths Memorial Trophy (1100m)
#13 – Gentility @ $4 – Bet @ Neds
Gentility won on debut at Mornington before being sent for a spell, which is usually a sign of their potential.
The Peter Moody-trained three-year-old won by 3.8 lengths in a one-sided display as the odds-on favourite, so it was a classy effort.
She gets in light and the daughter of Snitzel is the one to beat.
Race 5. (14:10) Catanach’s Jewellers BM78 (1100m)
#1 – Forever Free @ $11 – Bet @ Neds
Forever Free looked good winning fresh up at Mornington and she wasn’t too far away when sixth at Caulfield last time out.
The four-year-old is a five-time winner from 16 starts and one of those came at Caulfield, so she doesn’t mind the tricky circuit.
Getting 3kg off her back could make the difference.
Race 6. (14:45) Take It to the Neds Level BM78 (1200m)
#11 – Jigsaw @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Jigsaw comes off a win at Cranbourne and it suggested that he can rise through the grades in fine style.
The three-year-old gelding is now a three-time winner from 11 starts and he has the ability to win at stakes level.
Barrier 17 makes it tough over this distance but his class should take him close.
Race 7. (15:25) Neds Punters Toolbox BM100 (2000m)
#2 – Grandslam @ $3 – Bet @ Neds
The Maher/Eustace team lines up Grandslam, who won impressively two back at Caulfield and anything close to that form is good enough.
Conditions weren’t ideal at Warrnambool last start and he’s a much better runner on a good surface, so punters should expect a form turnaround.
Expect most of the money to come his way on race day.
Race 8. (16:05) Colin Little BM84 (1600m)
#3 – Hosier @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
Hosier is a professional five-time winner from eight starts and two of them have come over the mile.
The five-year-old gelding scored a win at Sandown last time out by 3.5 lengths and it was a classy display, so he could be class above them here.
2kg comes off his back and he’s likely to push forward and run well.
Race 9. (16:40) Schweppes BM84 (1400m)
#15 – Cambourne @ $10 – Bet @ Neds
Cambourne didn’t appreciate the wet conditions last time out and his chances improve on the good track.
The four-year-old owns two wins and two placings on a good surface, so he shouldn’t be overlooked at the double-figure odds.
He gets a claimer in the saddle to help with the weight.
