Caulfield Cup Form Guide & Tips
1. Anthony Van Dyck (Best Bet – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet
The favourite enters this race having beaten one of the world’s best stayers. His win over Stradivarius was top notch and despite drawing barrier 21, he has time to find cover.
Class is with the Aidan O’Brien-trained runner and punters are getting fair odds.
2. Avilius ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
That was a nice effort last start but he is struggling to find his best form. Drawing barrier 17 doesn’t help and punters would have to take him on trust.
3. Vow And Declare ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
The 2019 Melbourne Cup winner the demands respect, but since rising in weight, he hasn’t been able to recapture the same form.
The odds reflect his chances but he could get a clever ride from Damien Oliver.
4. Buckhurst ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet
International form reads well and he won’t need to improve to win this race. Specked in the betting and that is a good sign ahead of Saturday’s race.
It has first-four claims at each-way odds.
5. Mirage Dancer ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off an impressive win at Randwick where it ravished the line. That is a good sign going forward and he has shown ability at the top level.
Drawn well with only 55kg on his back, so we wouldn’t be leaving him out.
6. Musterjeer ($126) Bet @ Sportsbet
His form has seen better days and he’s not the same horse he was this time last season. We are prepared to overlook his chances in the Caulfield Cup.
7. Verry Elleegant (Best Each Way – $5) Bet @ Sportsbet
She is coming off a gutsy win at Flemington and she won her only start at Caulfield, which is always a positive.
The Kiwi mare is as tough as they come, and you need to be tough to win this race. Her winning chances are excellent and punters get value odds.
8. Dashing Willoughby ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Back-to-back wins before running fourth at York. It has a win over Cross Counter on its record, so it has no problem beating former Melbourne Cup winners.
Watch for late betting movement.
9. Finche (Best Roughie – $14) Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller has Finche running well this season and we liked the way he hit the line when third last start.
Finche has always promising to score a big win in Australia and he doesn’t get a better chance to impress.
10. Prince of Arran ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet
Prince of Arran will have plenty of support at odds, but he doesn’t like to win all that often. His efforts in the Melbourne Cup have been fantastic, so perhaps wait a couple of weeks.
11. Master of Wine ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
His last two starts have been solid and the Sydney-based runner has been met with good support with bookmakers.
We wouldn’t have priced him at single-figure odds, but he shouldn’t be too far away.
12. The Chosen One ($91) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Kiwi scored an upset win fresh up but he hasn’t shown much since then. The 2400m distance is ideal and although tough to follow, we wouldn’t be surprised if went well at big odds.
13. Warning ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
It has enjoyed running over these distances in the past and despite not coming on this campaign, he should be hitting the line with purpose.
The $23 is a good value and he enters first-four calculations.
14. Dalasan ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet
Capable on its day and he gets the services of in-form jockey William Pike. He has mixed form this season but he is rarely too far away.
15. True Self ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
International runner that missed the jump last start and that is never a good sign. Drawn well and 52kg helps, but we can’t have him in selections.
16. Aktau ($91) Bet @ Sportsbet
Dropped out of contention last start and he was beaten a long way from home. We can’t have him on that performance.
17. Toffee Tongue ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Australasian Oaks winner that was only narrowly beaten by Verry Elleegant in the Turnbull Stakes last start.
Plenty to like about that form and the $15 is a good price for a promising stayer.
18. Chapada ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Cruised home to score last Saturday but he is facing stronger opposition. We can’t deny his chances here but he would need a career-best showing.
19. Raheem House ($251) Bet @ Sportsbet
Not running well this time in and that was a disappointing effort last start.
20. San Huberto ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet
He shouldn’t be quick enough over this distance. He wants 3000m, so wait for later this season.
21. Oceanex ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
Capable on her day but she is unlikely to get a start.
22. Le Von De Vie ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win but he would need scratchings to get a start.
