Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:05) Superior Food Services BM80 (1600m)
#6 – Rainbow Thief @ $2.20 – Bet Now
The Mike Moroney-trained gelding is coming off an outstanding 3.5-length win at Sandown, and that form bodes well for this race.
He scored his third career win from seven starts, and he should be able to kick on with it at this level. His turn-of-foot was impressive and it comes as no surprise to see the short odds.
We’re expecting the $2.20 odds to stay steady throughout the week.
Race 2. (13:40) Lamaro’s Hotel Grand BM80 (2400m)
#3 – Grand Promenade @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Shooting for four consecutive wins, Grand Promenade could make the rise up in class. He scored narrowly at Ballarat last start and rising to 2400m is ideal.
He’s bred to handle the rise in distance and drawing awkwardly in barrier eight won’t be an issue for him.
Race 3. (14:15) Arrowfield Redoute’s Choice (1000m)
#6 – Masseuse @ $4.40 – Bet Now
The two-year-old filly had good backing on debut and although beaten, she didn’t disappoint. She flashed home late at Moonee Valley to lose by a nose.
It bodes well for a good run this time around, and having Craig Williams in the saddle is only going to help her cause.
$4.40 is a fair each-way price.
Race 4. (14:50) Browns Sawdust Gold Reef (1600m)
#1 – Thought of That @ $3.90 – Bet Now
The Maher/Eustace team lines up the quality colt, which has two wins from nine starts. He ran in the Victoria Derby last preparation, so getting up to the mile will help.
It’s good to see money coming for him throughout the week. It shows that he’s forward in his preparation and punters are getting each-way odds.
Race 5. (15:25) Neds Mornington Cup Prelude (2000m)
#4 – Secret Blaze @ $2.80 – Bet Now
Class is with Secret Blaze, which has won six of his 24 starts. The son of Sizzling has finished in the money in 13 of his 24 starts, and that form is tough to overlook.
He’s drifting in the betting but he’ll likely get out to around $3.20. That would be a good price for punters to take come race day.
Race 6. (16:05) Inglis Dash (1100m)
#1 – Sartorial Splendor @ $4.60 – Bet Now
The John Sadler-trained colt is much better than what he showed last start, so stick with him.
He is a quality son of Brazen Beau that has finished in the money in five of his eight starts, including a win at Moonee Valley last October.
Drawing the inside barrier is ideal and that’s a key barrier over this distance.
Race 8. (17:25) Neds Anniversary Vase (1600m)
#2 – Admiral’s Joker @ $1.90 – Bet Now
Admiral’s Joker is an emergency for the All-Star Mile, but it would be wise for connections to line him up here.
The seven-year-old is coming off a solid placing at Flemington where she finished in behind Fifty Stars. That’s a good form guide for this season and although he’s short in the market, it’s deserved.
Craig Williams rides and that’s another positive.
Race 9. (17:55) Nick Johnstone BM80 (1200m)
#2 – Battle Storm @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Punters should respect the form out of Perth, which has been stacking up nicely for a couple of years. This five-year-old has won five of his six starts, with the only defeat coming last start.
He might have been a touch tired towards the end of his campaign, but he’s fresh now and ready to fire.
Respect his chances and punters are getting fair odds from bookmakers.
