Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:20) Neds Handicap (2400m)
#3 – Tooradin @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained five-year-old ran well when second at Flemington last time out. He finished second behind Hosier, which is a good form guide for the spring.
He was only a nose behind the winner, which gave him three consecutive second placings. He is a four-time winner, so the class is there.
$2.50 could shorten to around $1.80 on race day.
Race 2. (12:55) Volvo Cars Brighton BM78 (1100m)
#7 – Zorro’s Dream – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zorro’s Dream capped off consistent form with a win at Flemington last start, so he’s capable of kicking on with it.
The five-year-old son of Toronado has figured in the finish in 16 of his 18 starts, so he’s one of the more consistent runners going around.
Barrier four is ideal and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 3. (13:30) Evergreen Turf BM90 (1400m)
#7 – Turaath @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking for three consecutive wins is Turaath, who scored by 3.8 lengths against a tidy field at Flemington last start.
The five-year-old mare by Oasis Dream has shown plenty of ability since arriving in Australia, and it could continue Saturday.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and his odds have firmed steadily since markets opened.
Race 4. (14:10) McNeil Stakes (1200m)
#2 – General Beau @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
General Beau has had the benefit of a race day start this preparation, which helps against this level of opposition.
The three-year-old son of Brazen Beau is a two-time winner from four starts at Caulfield, and his second placing behind Ingratiating was solid.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 5. (14:50) McCafe The Heath (1100m)
#1 – Masked Crusader @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Masked Crusader isn’t the easiest horse to trust, but he’s a dynamic sprinter on his day.
The Hawkes-trained five-year-old is a five-time winner from 12 starts, and a winner at his only start at Caulfield.
Punters will have to take short odds, but he has the significant class edge over this field.
Race 6. (15:30) W.W. Cockram Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Probabeel @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Probabeel is a noted fresh up performer and the champion five-year-old is unbeaten in two starts at Caulfield.
The Kiwi-bred daughter of Savabeel is a 10-time winner overall and three-time winner at the distance. The statistics read well, and we’re not surprised at the odds.
Barrier 10 will require some luck, but she is another class runner.
Race 7. (16:10) Tile Importer Heatherlie Stakes (1700m)
#12 – Bartholomeu Dias @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old gelding got back to his back form at Flemington and he’s capable of kicking on with it.
He is a son of Mount Nelson that handles all track conditions, and although slightly better on synthetic surfaces, he showed he can win anywhere last start.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and barrier two is ideal.
Race 9. (17:20) Neds Filter Form Handicap (1400m)
#11 – Aryton @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aryton is a quality type in the making after winning four of his five starts. His only defeat came two back at Eagle Farm, but he bounced back with a 2.8-length romp.
The future is bright for Aryton, and he has already had two wins at Caulfield, so he handles the tricky track and he likes the distance.
He’s a slick customer and the $2 is a fair enough price for a hype runner.
