Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:00) Neds BM78 (1600m)
#4 – Tavidance – Bet Now
Tavidance scored a comfortable two-length win at Caulfield last start and he’s capable of producing the goods again.
He is a son of Tavistock that owns three wins from only six starts, so he has made a positive start to his career.
Drawing barrier 11 is the only negative but he should find a solid spot in running.
Race 2. (12:35) Brendan Dart Vobis Gold Ingot (1400m)
#2 – Flinders River – Bet Now
The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding worked home solidly at Sandown last start and he should be better for the run.
He showed his ability when winning on debut at Morphettville and although beaten since, he has taken on tough opposition.
It doesn’t get easier here but Craig Williams rides off the inside draw so consider.
Race 3. (13:10) Neds Same Race Multi BM90 (1100m)
#6 – Propelle – Bet Now
Propelle needed two runs back from a spell and she looks ready to strike now. The four-year-old mare made good ground on this track last start and Caulfield is a track she runs well at.
The only downside is that she is yet to win over this distance from eight attempts. However, she hasn’t had much luck in those races and her luck is due to turn around.
It is another good ride for Williams and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 4. (13:45) Mark Needham Handicap (2394m)
#1 – Persan – Bet Now
Persan has rattled off three consecutive wins and it’s tough to overlook that form. He is still a growing three-year-old colt, so to string wins together is outstanding.
The son of Pierro could be heading for bigger grades after his 2.5-length win at Flemington. This is his first try around Caulfield but he is the class runner of this field.
Race 5. (14:25) Elizabeth Mooney Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Paris – Bet Now
The Peter Moody-trained filly is getting close to posting a win after running well behind some smart types.
She has finished behind the likes of Felicia, Mystery Shot, and Flostar in recent times. That form stacks up nicely for this race and she likes Caulfield.
She has placed in both starts on this track and she could turn that into a win.
Race 6. (15:05) Neds Price Boost Handicap (1400m)
#10 – Coming Around – Bet Now
Coming Around is a five-time winner in Perth and that form has been holding up nicely in Melbourne this season.
Now with Brent Stanley, the four-year-old could make a winning debut in Melbourne and he is already a three-time winner over this distance.
Damien Oliver is a key booking and watch for late betting moves.
Race 7. (15:45) Big Screen Company Bletchingly Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Jungle Edge @ $6 – Bet Now
Jungle Edge loves the sting out of the ground and he should get conditions to suit. Connections want a spot in The Everest, so there is plenty of confidence with the nine-year-old.
He is coming off a win at Caulfield where he led throughout. Finding the front will be harder from barrier nine but he owns good gate speed.
$6 for this classy customer is good shopping.
Race 8. (16:20) L Owens Vobis Gold Stayers (2394m)
#3 – Sasko – Bet Now
The Matt Cumani-trained gelding won back-to-back races earlier this preparation and he could get back to winning form.
Dropping back slightly in distance will help and he owns six starts for two wins and three placings over the 2400m.
He is an eight-time winner overall and we wouldn’t be ruling out his chances of winning.
Race 9. (16:53) Neds Bet Back Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Mystery Shot – Bet Now
Mystery Shot is flying with four consecutive wins to start his career. The three-year-old won by 2.5 lengths at Caulfield last start and that was his second consecutive win on this track.
It would take a brave punter to bet against Mystery Shot this Saturday and his odds should reflect the bookmakers’ confidence.
