Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:05) Neds Vobis Gold Stayers (2412m)
#2 – Royal Crown @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Mick Kent-trained four-year-old is a four-time winner from 16 starts and although beaten last time out, he demands attention here.
He wasn’t too far behind The Good Fight last week and being on the quick back-up shouldn’t worry him in the slightest.
He is a past winner at the track and distance, so keep him safe.
Race 2. (12:40) MRC Member Alan Yates Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Great Again – Bet @ Sportsbet
Great Again isn’t in career best form, but we’re sticking with the eight-year-old gelding for one more run.
The son of Viscount owns an imposing record of 10 wins and nine placings from 28 starts, so his record speaks for itself.
2kg comes off his back and that could be enough to see the tide turn his way.
Race 3. (13:15) Neds Vobis Gold Ingot (1400m)
#9 – Pammy Joy – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Echuca is Pammy Joy, who could make the rise in class. The Hayes-trained filly scored by two lengths in heavy conditions and the track should suit here.
She is a two-year-old daughter of Nicconi that backed up a solid effort on debut at Donald and she is progressing in the right direction.
Damien Oliver is a key booking and that should give punters confidence.
Race 4. (13:50) MRC Member Garry Franklin BM90 (1100m)
#1 – La Mexicana @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly is a slick sprinter and she is unbeaten in three starts at Caulfield. She has an outstanding course record and she is also unbeaten at the distance.
She owns six wins and two placings from eight starts, so consistency is key and we can’t believe she’s not favourite to win.
La Mexicana got the better of favourite Miss Albania last start and we expect more of the same on Saturday.
Race 5. (14:25) MRC Member Linda Leo BM78 (1400m)
#17 – Sessions Road – Bet @ Sportsbet
Winning form is with Sessions Road and he could make the rise in class to win at Caulfield.
The four-year-old son of All Too Hard is shooting for his fourth straight win after scoring at Ballarat, Pakenham and Sandown. He showed good fight to win at Sandown, so that holds him in good stead.
Punters should get value odds and he’s worth including in selections.
Race 6. (15:05) Ciaron Maher Racing Handicap (2412m)
#3 – Murrumbidgee River – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old son of Fiorente scored on debut at Ballarat before going close in a tough field at Sandown last start.
His maiden win was impressive when scoring by three lengths and he should have remained unbeaten. However, punters get another chance to get value odds for the Maher/Eustace-trained runner.
Barrier 12 won’t be an issue over this distance and having Jamie Kah in the saddle helps.
Race 7. (15:45) Neds Filter Form Handicap (1200m)
#11 – The Garden – Bet @ Sportsbet
Facing a rise in class is The Garden, but that was an impressive maiden win at Geelong last week and he is worth following.
The three-year-old powered away from the field to win by two lengths and it’s good to see Craig Williams sticking with him.
Punters will get value odds and he should enter trifecta calculations.
Race 8. (16:20) The Big Screen Company Bletchingly Stakes (1200m)
#9 – The Astrologist @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team Corstens lines up the in-form four-year-old that has won his last two starts in fine style.
The son of Zoustar won both starts at Flemington and the latest came by a half-length against a stellar field.
Racing at Caulfield holds no fears and drawing barrier four should see him right in the thick of the action.
Race 9. (16:52) MRC Membership Renewal Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Zou Dancer – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zou Dancer owns three wins from six career starts and the three-year-old filly has won fresh up in the past.
She scored by 4.8 lengths at Flemington two starts back against Personal, which is a stellar form guide and she backed it up with a fifth behind Lunar Fox at Group 1 level.
3kg comes off her back and she has each-way credentials.
