Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Vale Graham Salisbury Handicap (1100m)
#12 – Clean Machine @ $5 – Bet Now
Clean Machine ran fifth on debut at Caulfield and she looks good enough to rebound from that effort.
Bookmakers have kept the daughter of Brazen Beau safe in betting, which is an interesting sign ahead of her fresh-up effort.
Expect a good run at each-way odds in the first.
Race 2. (12:25) Le Pine Funerals BM78 (1600m)
#1 – Thought of That – Bet Now
Thought of That is the quality animal of this field and he drops significantly in class. The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding won at Group 3 level on this track in October and that form is ideal.
He has since run behind the likes of Warning and Write Your Name, so the class is there and kicking off at the mile is ideal.
Race 3. (13:00) Take It To The Neds Level Handicap (1440m)
#7 – Mystery Shot – Bet Now
Unbeaten after two starts is Mystery Shot, which could bring provincial form into the city. He scored on debut at Warrnambool by three lengths before winning at Ballarat by a length.
The son of Shooting to Win faces his toughest test to date but we have been impressed with what he has shown so far.
Michael Rodd takes the ride and each-way odds should be available.
Race 4. (13:35) Father Brendon Dillon BM84 (1200m)
#9 – Sakura – Bet Now
We are sticking with Sakura despite poor form this preparation. The James Cummings-trained mare is a four-time winner from 13 starts that could bounce back.
A change in scenery could help and she has never been to Caulfield. Getting the inside draw is ideal and having Damien Oliver riding is another positive.
There are many things in her favour so expect a better result.
Race 5. (14:10) Hyland Sportswear Eofy Sale (1200m)
#10 – Paris – Bet Now
Paris is getting closer to a win after posting a third placing at Sale last start. Trained by Peter Moody, the three-year-old filly hasn’t had the most luck this season, but she has ability.
She is a daughter of Snitzel that made up good ground from the back of the field last time out and a repeat of that effort would take her close.
Drawing barrier 13 is the only negative but stick with her.
Race 6. (14:50) Neds Same Race Multi Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Ms Catherine – Bet Now
Ms Catherine peaked on her run at Moonee Valley last start but she will be better for the experience.
The Henry Dwyer-trained filly won her first three races in fine style and she was entitled to need the run fresh up.
Heading to Caulfield for the first time shouldn’t dent her winning chances and we are sticking with the talented type.
Race 7. (15:30) Neds BM84 (1100m)
#9 – Alfa Oro – Bet Now
Alfa Oro is an exciting type for trainer Matt Laurie, which has won four of his first six starts. The son of Bachelor Duke scored a win at Flemington last start and he has many more wins in store.
The trainer has a high opinion of the four-year-old and he could make it four consecutive wins this season.
It is not an easy field but expect money to come for him throughout the week.
Race 8. (16:05) Neds Money Back Odds Handicap (2000m)
#4 – Harbour Views @ $2.10 – Bet Now
Harbour Views got back to winning form with a 2.3-length win at Moonee Valley. It was a solid effort from the six-time winner, which has plenty of class on his side.
He is an internationally-bred gelding that has yet to miss a placing from nine starts and that consistency has rewarded punters.
The short odds have been taken and he could start odds-on come Saturday.
Race 9. (16:38) Neds Toolbox BM84 (1440m)
#13 – Victoria Star – Bet Now
Greg Eurell lines up the six-year-old gelding that owns five wins from nine starts. The lightly-tried type finished third behind Heptagon last start and that form has stacked up brilliantly.
The son of Tavistock needed the run at Caulfield and he should be ready to show his best now. He is third-up this campaign and ready to fire.
