Caulfield Guineas Form Guide & Tips
Yourdeel ($34) Bet Now
Former New Zealand runner which looked good across the Tasman, but hasn’t fired in Australia.
Lost his rider last start and that’s not going to help his cause either. Talented, but has too many niggling problems.
Dalasan ($3.20) Bet Now
Beaten favourite last start and we’re not sure if the barrier of 18 gives him much chance of winning.
Can be a little one-paced and although he’s the favourite at $3.20, those odds are slightly too short for our liking.
Alligator Blood (Best Bet – $4.80) Bet Now
Alligator Blood is unbeaten after five starts and the Queenslander could come into Melbourne and win.
The son of All Too Hard defeated a similar field last time out, which included current favourite Dalasan.
It was a big run from the David Vandyke-trained runner and he has a very nice future ahead of him.
$4.80 is a respectable price from bookmakers.
Kubrick (Best Each Way – $7.50) Bet Now
Chris Waller has a live chance here with Kubrick. He ran fourth in the Run to the Rose last start and he should build nicely on that.
The colt scored back-to-back wins to open his career so he has ability and the distance shouldn’t be an issue.
Just needs some luck from out wide.
Super Seth ($11) Bet Now
Looked to have a big future when winning three of his first four starts, but his recent starts were only fair.
He finished fifth last time out when given every chance and we’re not sure the mile is going to be his best distance.
The Holy One ($21) Bet Now
Kicked strongly to record his third career win from five starts. That form would likely need to improve in order to win at the Group 1 level.
Look for him to run in something easier.
Subedar (Best Roughie – $15) Bet Now
There’s nothing much wrong with the form of Subedar coming into this and he’s at value odds.
It’s hard to stop the Cummings stable at present and with some handy placings coming into this, the gelding looms as a chance.
$15 is well worth taking.
Skiddaw ($31) Bet Now
Broke through for an overdue win last time out but that came in a much easier race.
Could snare a group win along the way but it’s unlikely to come at this level.
Roccabascerana ($12) Bet Now
Scored a win at his first three starts and he wasn’t disgraced when fourth behind Alligator Blood last time out.
That’s going to be the best form guide coming into this and the gelding looks in tip-top shape.
Goes into first-four calculations.
Stand to Attention ($61) Bet Now
Good win and placing coming into this but it’s a stab in the dark proposition. Looks held at this level and he should struggle.
Conqueror ($31) Bet Now
Yet to run a bad race but is he Group 1 material? We don’t think so and we’d want bigger odds than what’s on offer.
Vegas Knight ($31) Bet Now
Mixing his form this season but is talented at best. Might be looking for longer and this stable knows how to train a stayer.
Wait for something a little easier and a touch further.
Eric The Eel ($34) Bet Now
Has firmed in from $51 but we’re not sure he’s going be good enough.
Could be floundering late and it would some a big upset to see him winning.
Soul Patch ($17) Bet Now
Two wins from three starts, which also included a second placing fresh up.
Unsure if he’s a Guineas winner, but there is money coming for him and he shouldn’t be left out of calculations.
Express Pass ($19) Bet Now
Didn’t fire last start but his efforts prior to that were solid.
Drifting significantly in the betting after opening at $11 but he did earn some early respect.
Exeter ($151) Bet Now
The odds tell the story with this three-year-old. Very poor last time out and that form doesn’t appear good enough.
Groundswell ($13) Bet Now
From an in-form stable and he has some upside. Could run a nice race and there is good betting support at double-figure odds.
Worth keeping an eye on the market.
Serengeti ($51) Bet Now
Comes from a stable of stayers and it should be better with more racing and time under his belt.
