Caulfield horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:10) Vale John Adgemis BM70 (1100m)
#1 – Miss Divine Em @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Divine Em is a consistent filly that has finished in the money in six of seven starts. She is a three-time winner that comes off a third placing at Flemington.
There is plenty to like about that form and with the 3kg coming off her back, we are surprised by the generous odds.
Her odds should firm throughout the week, so get the value on offer.
Race 2. (13:45) Caulfield Outdoor Events BM78 (2000m)
#1 – Doroza @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Matt Cumani-trained five-year-old comes off a win at Flemington, and there is plenty to like about that form.
He is a five-time winner that has yet to fire from three attempts at Caulfield, but he should get a good run throughout from barrier seven.
2kg comes off his back and punters get each-way odds.
Race 3. (14:20) Neds Blue Diamond Preview (1000m)
#3 – Gulf of Suez @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We have been impressed with race favourite General Beau, but Gulf of Suez could be on another level.
The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding scored on debut at Morphettville by three lengths, and he was even better last time out.
He scored by 5.8 lengths in a dominant display, which bodes him in good stead for this race down the Flemington straight.
It’s a tough race to win, but it could pay to watch for race day betting moves.
Race 4. (14:55) Neds Blue Diamond Preview (1000m)
#2 – Frost Flowers @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frost Flowers ran an impressive time on debut and that’s why she goes on top in the co-feature race.
The Freedman-trained two-year-old won by 1.5 lengths on debut at Flemington, and having another run should be ideal.
Barrier three suits and she will likely get a good sit behind the speed and kick away late.
Race 5. (15:30) The Mary Bell BM84 (1100m)
#6 – La Mexicana @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
La Mexicana is a talent sprinter that went down by only a half-length at Sandown last start. Prior to that, the three-year-old filly won back-to-back races at Cranbourne and Moonee Valley.
Her win at The Valley was particularly impressive, and the daughter of I Am Invincible will derive plenty of benefit from the run.
Drawing the inside barrier with only 54.5kg on her back is ideal.
Race 6. (16:05) John Dillon Stakes (1400m)
#6 – Viral @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Viral couldn’t have been more impressive when winning at Flemington last start. He came underneath runners, so it was a very tough outing.
The five-year-old gelding is a six-time winner and past winner at Caulfield. Having winning form on this track is ideal, so punters should expect another top effort.
Damian Lane rides from barrier three, and $3.50 is well worth taking.
Race 7. (16:40) Neds W.J. Adams Stakes (1000m)
#9 – All Banter @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
All Banter could be the next star out of Adelaide following an impressive win at Moonee Valley last start.
The three-year-old filly won by two lengths, and although she takes on stiff competition, she could handle the rise in class.
Craig Williams rides and having a quality rider in the saddle will help.
Race 8. (17:15) Neds Same Race Multi BM70 (1400m)
#5 – Regardsmaree @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Regardsmaree scored a quality win fresh up at Bendigo and he wasn’t far away when racing at Caulfield last time out.
The Nick Ryan-trained gelding was only a short margin behind Rule The World and Grinzinger Allee, and that form stacks up nicely.
Barrier 14 doesn’t help his chances but punters should be confident of a good result.
