Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:20) Surewise Vobis Gold Heath (2000m)
#2 – Mahamedeis @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Nick Ryan-trained gelding looked good when running third at Caulfield last start and he is close to an overdue victory.
He hit the line nicely behind Hang Man and Persan, which is top-level staying form. Four of his wins have come at this track and distance, so punters should be confident.
$2.10 is an indication of how confident the bookmakers are.
Race 2. (12:55) Neds Toolbox BM78 (1400m)
#13 – South Parade @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
South Parade continues to win and although it will be harder from barrier 16, he must be respected at this level.
The John Sadler-trained three-year-old has rattled off three consecutive wins and shown good barrier speed in the process.
If he can find the front with a 3kg claim, he could kick away from them again.
Race 3. (13:30) The Vobis Sires Guineas (1600m)
#3 – Beau Rossa @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beau Rossa comes off a dominant win at Sandown where he kicked away for a seven-length victory.
It was a stylish effort and although facing a harder task on Saturday, punters should be confident with the three-year-old.
Barrier three is ideal and $1.80 is a fair price given his form.
Race 4. (14:05) IRT Vobis Gold Mile (1600m)
#1 – Mr Quickie @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Quickie is the class runner of this field and he carries only 61kg, which is a good weight for a runner of his ability.
The Phillip Stokes-trained gelding defeated a high-quality field on this track last start and he is a three-time winner at Caulfield.
Punters shouldn’t be surprised by the short odds and he could firm on race day.
Race 5. (14:45) Avenel Equine Vobis Dash (1100m)
#5 – Bella Nipotina @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bella Nipotina deserves a win after placing behind some smart types. The three-year-old filly ran third behind Marboosha two back and Isotope last time out.
That is hot form for a race like this and with the addition of William Pike in the saddle, Saturday could be the day.
She is the best one-race winner in Australia and she could make it two.
Race 6. (15:25) The Showdown (1200m)
#10 – Arcaded @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Arcaded is already a three-time winner from four starts and although her only failure came at Caulfield, it was in the Blue Diamond.
The daughter of Street Boss replied to that defeat with a 1.3-length win at Rosehill and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
Jamie Kah rides and $3.70 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 7. (16:05) Widden Victoria Bel Esprit (1100m)
#10 – Alfa Oro @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alfa Oro was beaten last time out but not disgraced. The Matt Laurie-trained sprinter owns six wins from 10 starts and he gets conditions to suit.
He was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner on that occasion and carrying 54kg against this level of opposition is ideal.
Punters get lovely each-way odds and he looks like a good bet.
Race 8. (16:40) Spendthrift Vobis Gold Sprint (1200m)
#3 – How Womantic @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Speed is with How Womantic, which finished second at Mornington last start and she will use the inside draw to her advantage.
Her best races have been when finding the rail, so drawing barrier one should see her ride the speed and show a good kick in the straight.
It’s another good ride for Jamie Kah and punters get value odds.
Race 9. (17:20) Blue Gum Distaff (1400m)
#14 – Good And Proper @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Ellerton/Zahra-trained four-year-old is a three-time winner at this distance and she rarely runs a bad race.
Her form this campaign consists of two wins and two second placings, with the most recent coming behind The Stylist at Bendigo.
Barrier four is ideal and the price is generous.
