Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:35) Thoroughbred Club Merson Cooper (1000m)
#6 – Ebhaar @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ebhaar is bred to be good and her trial form has been impressive. The daughter of I Am Invincible won a trial at Randwick before winning a jumpout at Flemington.
The Snowden-trained filly has been heavily backed from $4 to $2.90, which is a sizable move for a debutante.
We’re looking forward to seeing her race.
Race 2. (13:10) Neds Sandown Cup (3200m)
#2 – True Marvel @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
True Marvel has been cruising home over the long distances with three wins from his last four starts.
The six-year-old scored over 3800m at Moonee Valley last time out by 16 lengths, which was an incredible victory.
54kg on his back is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 3. (13:45) Tobin Bros Twilight Glow Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Decent Raine @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Decent Raine couldn’t have been more impressive when scoring at Ballarat last time out.
The Maher/Eustace-trained filly scored by 3.5 lengths over Jimmy the Bear, which is a smart type in the making.
A good track isn’t ideal, but she has the class edge over this field.
Race 4. (14:20) Premier Signs Doveton Stakes (1000m)
#13 – Yulong Command @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
With four wins and four placings from 13 starts, Yulong Command should be right around the mark.
The four-year-old son of Written Tycoon defeated a good field at The Valley last start and carrying 54kg is ideal for this race.
$4.80 is a fair price after opening at $6.
Race 5. (15:00) Beck Probuild Summoned Stakes (1600m)
#9 – Steinem @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Steinem was only three lengths behind Colette last time out and that form bodes well for this race.
The four-year-old mare is a two-time winner from seven starts, and although her best form might be better over longer distances, she enjoys the mile.
Expect her to settle back and finish off strongly.
Race 6. (15:40) Neds Sandown Guineas (1600m)
#12 – Festival Dancer @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Festival Dancer is shooting for five wins on the bounce after scoring at Newcastle last time out.
The three-year-old filly scored easily by 2.5 lengths and she’s unbeaten from four starts over the mile, which is tough to overlook.
Carrying 55kg is ideal and we’re confident.
Race 7. (16:20) Herald Sun Zipping Classic (2400m)
#1 – Spanish Mission @ $1.55 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spanish Mission ran third in the Melbourne Cup and that form bodes well for the Zipping Classic at Caulfield.
The Peter Moody-trained stayer is the class runner of the field and we can’t see him being beaten. Punters have to take short odds, but he’s well worth backing.
There are no runners in this field on his level.
Race 8. (17:00) Keno Eclipse Stakes (1800m)
#7 – Starelle @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Starelle has yet to fire at Caulfield, but the four-year-old mare comes off an impressive placing at Flemington behind Zayydani.
The daughter of More than Ready gets every chance with a light weight on her back and she has good form guides.
Craig Williams rides and punters get each-way odds.
Race 9. (17:40) Quayclean Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1400m)
#10 – Sinawann @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Freedman-trained five-year-old owns two wins and five placings from 11 starts, which is a handy record.
He had his first Australian start at Flemington when running sixth behind Age of Chivalry, and that form should stack up nicely against this company.
It’s another good ride for Williams, so include at each-way odds.
