Caulfield Cup 2019 Form Guide & Tips
Hartnell ($19) Bet Now
It would be foolish to rule out Hartnell as he’s such a grand type. Good third placing last start and getting the 2400m distance shouldn’t worry him.
Nice odds on offer and he should never be ruled out.
Mirage Dancer ($15) Bet Now
Hasn’t done anything wrong this campaign, which includes a win and three placings.
Imported runner which has good international form and this stable is starting to fire up this season.
Nice chance and the odds appeal.
Mer De Glace (Best Bet – $7.50) Bet Now
Japanese runners are always tough to handle and Mer De Glace looks a nice type in the making.
Punters shouldn’t be worried about the wide draw as it rarely matters over 2400m.
He comes into this with five consecutive wins and every chance of making that six. He’s our best bet and punters are getting value odds.
Mustajeer ($10) Bet Now
Another imported runner which is coming off a good win. There is plenty of confidence in the Kris Lees camp and that’s shown in the betting.
He’s holding steady in the market and he could even start as favourite.
Likely to go close.
Rostropovich ($21) Bet Now
Has been in Australia for some time now and he has yet to impress to date.
Best form has come internationally but he hasn’t been able to show that in Australia.
He’s worth another chance but this is not an easy race to win.
Finche ($6) Bet Now
Impressive winner two back and he went awfully close last time out.
Opened at $5 and has drifted out to $6, but he’s going to be a well-supported runner and should run accordingly.
Winning the Caulfield Cup wouldn’t be out of his reach and he’s a much better chance here than in the Melbourne Cup.
Gold Mount ($21) Bet Now
Fresh up here after showing good form overseas. Might need this run for the Melbourne Cup, but a win wouldn’t surprise.
There is plenty of unknown about Gold Mount but he has been supported in the market.
Red Verdon ($34) Bet Now
Two wins from five starts this season and although he’s an inconsistent runner, he could be worth backing at nice odds.
He will stay all day and jockey Patrick Cosgrave has experience winning in Australia.
Angel of Truth ($71) Bet Now
Showed good form last season but hasn’t quite come back this time in. Would need to improve on recent form and he doesn’t appear to be running his best.
Big odds on offer but rightfully so.
Big Duke ($51) Bet Now
Hasn’t won in a long time and it’s unlikely he’ll be winning this.
Former top liner which is past his best and a top five finish would be surprising.
Constantinople (Best Each Way – $8.50) Bet Now
Knocking on the door of a win after three consecutive second placings.
Gets into the race light with only 53kg and the European three-year-olds have been winning frequently in these big staying races.
Fits the bill and he should go very close to winning.
Mr Quickie ($9) Bet Now
Disappointing run last start but we’re prepared to forgive that effort. He was much better prior to that and the Australian as upside.
A touch short in the betting but the 53kg on his back is ideal. Chance here.
Crown Prosecutor ($34) Bet Now
New Zealand Derby winner which ran on nicely for third behind Melody Belle in New Zealand last start.
Can be a touch one-paced but the Kiwis breed stayers and he could cause an upset in the Caulfield Cup.
Vow And Declare ($9) Bet Now
Looks a nice type in the making and that’s evident in the betting. He’s a touch shorter than expected but there have been some confident bets placed.
Handy fourth when fresh up and he’s going to have no problem seeing out the distance.
Brimham Rocks ($26) Bet Now
Got back to winning form two back but reverted back to his old form last time out.
Tough to line up that form but we would want bigger odds for the risk.
The Chosen One (Best Roughie – $17) Bet Now
Kiwi runner which showed them how to stay last Saturday. That was a nice effort and the Kiwi has been heavily backed to win.
His odds have firmed in from $26 to $14 (back out to $17) and that’s a serious move.
He’ll see out the distance and he owns a nice turn-of-foot.
Qafila ($34) Bet Now
Not running up to his best form and although this distance could suit, it would take a career-best performance to see him winning.
51.5kg on the back helps but that’s where the positives end.
Wolfe ($23) Bet Now
Won the Coongy on Wednesday to quality for this race. That was a gutsy effort after looking beaten on the turn.
Winning two races in a week isn’t easy but he could provide punters with a good sight at the top of the straight.
Sound ($101) Bet Now
Not running well and it looks a beaten horse.
Neufbosc ($101) Bet Now
Hasn’t found his best form this time in and it’s hard to see him winning this.
Drawn well but it would be a sizable upset to see him winning.
True Self ($51) Bet Now
Knows how to win races but he could struggle to find that form against this level of opposition.
Gets in with a good weight and he could attract some interest. However, could pay to wait until he runs in the Melbourne Cup.
Prince of Arran ($16) Bet Now
Gutsy performance to run second last start and he’s always a chance in these staying races.
Has been nicely backed to win and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him fighting out the finish.
