Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) Noel Rundle Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Joey’s Gift @ $41 – Bet Now
Joey’s Gift was purchased by Stephen McKee following her debut win at Ballina. It was a strange story but the filly could kick on with it after scoring by 1.5 lengths.
The daughter of Pluck scored at odds of $40 on debut and although she’s facing a much harder field, she should be paying lower odds.
Watch the market with interest.
Race 2. (12:20) Bill Collins BM78 (1400m)
#9 – Simply Optimistic @ $6.50 – Bet Now
The Kiwi gelding wasn’t given the best ride at Caulfield last start and he did well to run seventh. He should be fitter for having had two runs this time and his form last preparation was good.
He scored a win at Randwick against some nice types and that form looks strong. Drawing barrier 15 hurts but he only needs a good ride to win.
Race 3. (12:55) Rod Fenwick Handicap (1600m)
#1 – The Lifeline @ $7 – Bet Now
The Lifeline needed one in the straight at Flemington last start but he’s better than that. He scored a quality win on this track last month and that’s a much better form guide.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained runner has yet to run worse than second at Caulfield and he also runs well at this distance.
He’s a three-year-old with plenty of upside so keep him safe.
Race 4. (13:35) JRA BM84 (1600m)
#2 – Pure Scot @ $9 – Bet Now
The Lindsay Park-trained mare is coming off two tidy efforts and she won’t take long to win a race. She hasn’t been winning much over the last couple of years, but the ability is there.
Her most recent effort to run third at Caulfield was good and it came behind Clarice Cliffs. It’s a good form guide and with Craig Williams in the saddle, she should prove tough to beat.
Punters should get each-way odds.
Race 5. (14:15) Darren Gauci Handicap (1200m)
#6 – It’s Kind of Magic @ $3.30 – Bet Now
It’s Kind of Magic resumes having not raced since running ninth behind Alligator Blood at the Magic Millions in January.
The three-year-old filly scored a 1.3-length win at Moonee Valley prior to that and she has good form throughout her career.
Damien Oliver rides from the inside barrier and she could pay a nice price with bookmakers.
Race 6. (14:55) Bert Bryant Handicap (1600m)
#8 – Hang Man @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Hang Man was no match for Rupture last start but he ran well for second. The Mike Moroney-trained gelding has finished in the money in 12 of his 20 starts, which includes six wins.
The son of Windsor Knot gets every chance from barrier four and he has been respected by bookmakers in early markets.
We’re expecting his price to remain steady.
Race 7. (15:35) Neds BM84 (1800m)
#9 – Nudge Bar @ $8 – Bet Now
Value is with Nudge Bar which has scored two wins from his last three starts. The four-year-old has recorded five wins and five placings from 16 starts, so he’s consistent.
His most recent win came at Cranbourne by over a length after leading throughout and it bodes well for a good run here.
It’s an open race and he represents value.
Race 8. (16:15) Lamaro’s Hotel South Melbourne Handicap (1100m)
#3 – William Thomas @ $6 – Bet Now
It was an impressive win from William Thomas last start at Caulfield and he is good enough to kick on with it.
The former Kiwi now has seven wins from 20 starts and if he gets conditions to suit, he’s a capable type.
$6 is a good price from bookmakers and he should give punters a good showing.
Race 9. (16:45) Ian Miller Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Moi Choux @ $23 – Bet Now
Moi Choux made it three wins from four starts when winning at Sale last start. The Richard Laming-trained gelding led throughout the race and scored by 1.8 lengths.
He looks capable of handling the rise in class and it’s good to see Damien Oliver booked to ride. That should give punters confidence.
