Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Neds Price Boost Multi Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Efflorescence @ $4.60 – Bet Now
The Anthony Freedman-trained colt was classy at Ballarat last start when scoring by 2.5 lengths.
He showed good ability at his first two races without getting much luck. That all changed when he made his own luck last time out and this race is there for the taking.
Having Billy Egan in the saddle won’t do his chances any harm.
Race 2. (12:25) Take It To The Neds Level BM90 (1100m)
#3 – Our Campana @ $3.60 – Bet Now
Our Campana finds form quickly and she could win upon resuming. The Peter Moody-trained mare is a five-time winner from 12 starts and that is a classy record.
She hasn’t raced since January when running fourth at Caulfield but she likes this track and getting the inside draw should see her go close.
Race 3. (13:00) Neds Bet Back BM78 (1400m)
#12 – Falls @ $14 – Bet Now
Falls is much better than he looked at Sandown last start and punters should expect a much better result.
The four-year-old gelding had support but found the track a touch too wet. Conditions should be up his alley this Saturday and drawing barrier two is ideal.
Look for a market push on race day.
Race 4. (13:35) Neds Same Race Multi Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Kings Brook @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Winning a race hasn’t been easy for Kings Brook of late but she went close at Flemington last month.
The Moody-trained daughter of Hinchinbrook is a six-time winner from 21 starts and there is plenty to like about that record.
She is yet to win at Caulfield but that could change.
Race 5. (14:15) Neds Price Boost Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Mystery Shot @ $3.80 – Bet Now
The Les Smith-trained gelding is attempting to stay unbeaten after four starts and he should run well once again.
He is coming off a tough victory at Caulfield where he sat on the speed and showed a good turn-of-foot late in the race.
The draw won’t make it easy but put him on top.
Race 6. (14:55) Neds Handicap (2000m)
#1 – Thought of That @ $6.50 – Bet Now
There was plenty to like about the run of Thought of That last time out. The former Derby runner finished second behind Heavenly Emperor and he fought on strongly.
That came over the mile, so stretching out to 2000m looks ideal and the wide draw won’t worry him too much.
He is worth sticking with and should pay each-way odds.
Race 7. (15:35) Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m)
#2 – Viridine @ $2.60 – Bet Now
Viridine got back to winning form at Randwick and he hit the line with some authority. The 1.3-length win holds him in good stead for this race and he could kick on with it.
Two of his seven career wins have come second-up and drawing barrier two is ideal over this short-course distance.
Damien Oliver rides and that is another positive.
Race 8. (16:10) Neds Money Back Odds Handicap (1100m)
#2 – Flostar @ $7 – Bet Now
Flostar was beaten at Morphettville last start but she was a touch unlucky not to get the job done. She won both starts prior to that and she could be entering this race riding a winning streak.
The Clinton McDonald-trained filly has four wins from 11 starts and that record should be respected against this lineup.
It is a tough field but her winning claims are strong.
Race 9. (16:43) Neds Toolbox BM84 (1700m)
#6 – Heavenly Emperor @ $5.50 – Bet Now
He dug deep to score at Caulfield last start and having that winning experience on this track is ideal.
The Brown-trained four-year-old made it five wins from 16 starts and he will look to build on that record throughout the winter months.
Look out for each-way odds on race day.
