Caulfield Guineas Form Guide & Tips
1. Anamoe (Best Bet – $2.70) Bet @ Sportsbet
Anamoe might have been beaten by In the Congo last start, but there was plenty of merit in the performance.
The talented colt will need to find a spot from barrier 15, but with Damien Oliver in the saddle, that should be possible.
He’s the class act, so put him on top.
2. Artorius ($3.90) Bet @ Sportsbet
Nothing wrong with his performance in the Golden Rose. He found trouble early but hit the line with power, which bodes well.
He could get cramped for room early, but he’s a must-include in trifecta and first fours.
3. Tiger of Malay ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet
Not far away when fifth in the Golden Rose. Had his chance in the run, but he should get every chance off the inside draw.
Having Craig Williams in the saddle doesn’t hurt.
4. Alpine Edge (Best Roughie – $17) Bet @ Sportsbet
Alpine Edge had no luck at Caulfield last start, so he could be over the odds here. The $17 is well worth taking for the talented Queenslander.
Barrier five is ideal, so he should get every chance in the run.
5. Captivant ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet
He is nominated for a more suitable race in Sydney, so that’s where he’ll likely end up. The wide barrier could force connections to miss this race.
6. Lightsaber ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
He got back his best with a win at Caulfield last start. It was an overdue win, but he’s a tough type that can’t be overlooked.
Having winning experience around a track like Caulfield is a big bonus.
7. Giannis ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Dropping in distance didn’t help last start, but getting out to the mile should be right up his alley.
The colt is only a one-time winner from seven starts, but he has more wins in store as he rises in distance.
8. Forgot You (Best Each Way – $18) Bet @ Sportsbet
He has always been on the Caulfield Guineas path, and his recent wins at Moonee Valley could be a sign of things to come.
He finished strongly to beat Mr Mozart last start, and if he brings that turn-of-foot again, he could cause an upset.
9. Coastwatch ($16) Bet @ Sportsbet
Another runner that is better suited to a race in Sydney. If he runs here, he’s still a winning hope based on his Golden Rose placing.
Trainer Chris Waller has a big opinion of the gelding, so we wouldn’t overlook his chances.
10. Mr Mozart ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet
Second behind Forgot You last start, and although we respect that form, he had every chance to win that race.
Likely to sit out the back and storm home late, but he won’t be entering our selections.
11. Daily Bugle ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
Not firing on all cylinders, and although that was a better effort last time out, he doesn’t appear to be going well enough.
12. Knightstown ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
The odds tell the story. The Adelaide-based runner would need to find a few lengths to worry some of these.
13. Dark Rebel ($201) Bet @ Sportsbet
Finished last in a much easier race at Rosehill last start. Connections are having a stab, but he won’t be troubling them.
14. Zerelle ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
Another runner at triple-figure odds, who is unlikely to get close. Wait for him to contest something much easier than Group 1 racing.
15. Riverplate ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
Yet to win a race from four starts. His form looked good earlier on, but he has been disappointing in two runs since.
He won’t take long to win his first race, but it’s unlikely to come against this company.
16. Prix de Turn ($41) Bet @ Sportsbet
Second on debut at Sandown and this is a fair rise in class. Brave from connections, but there is some betting support.
17. Hitotsu ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet
Scored his maiden win at Donald last start, and he’s another with solid support at odds.
