Caulfield Blue Sapphire Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:30) Nick Johnston Real Estate BM84 (2407m)
#2 – Shared Ambition – Bet Now
Form from Shared Ambition has been impressive this season, winning his last three starts.
The Chris Waller-trained runner scored by 1.3 lengths on this track last start when making his Australian debut.
That form is going to stack up nicely and the son of Born To Sea could remain unbeaten down under.
The field of only eight runners will help his chances.
Race 2. (14:00) Alfa Romeo BM68 Plate (2000m)
#5 – Bass – Bet Now
Bass hasn’t had the best of luck this time in with two unlucky second placings.
His first placing was because of a poor ride from Ben Melham and he was simply too far back in the run at Geelong last start.
Dropping back in distance isn’t ideal for the six-year-old but he has upside and shouldn’t take long to win a race this season.
Stick with him as his luck could change.
Race 3. (14:35) Ladbrokes Coongy Cup (2000m)
#6 – Wolfe – Bet Now
Wolfe ran a good race to finish third behind Surprise Baby last start and that form is going to hold up nicely here.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding has been in good form throughout his campaign, which included three consecutive wins.
Dropping to 54kg is going to help his cause a lot and the only negative is a drop in distance. However, that shouldn’t worry him too much.
Race 4. (15:10) Drinkwise Plate BM70 (1600m)
#2 – Hilo – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old colt which is dropping back in grade for this run.
His most recent effort came behind Alligator Blood in the Guineas Prelude and he has since placed in the Caulfield Guineas.
The son of Lonhro scored back-to-back wins prior to that and he could get back to his winning best here.
Punters should be getting decent odds in a competitive race.
Race 5. (15:45) Beck Probuild BM84 (1400m)
#2 – Amadeus – Bet Now
Amadeus hasn’t done much right this season but he always needs a couple of runs to get warm.
The Mick Kent-trained seven-year-old ran sixth at Moonee Valley last start and although fair on paper, he was only a length from the winner.
This isn’t an overly strong field and with Craig Williams in the saddle, he looks good enough to notch his fifth career win.
Race 6. (16:25) Village Stakes (1200m)
#4 – Zoustyle @ $2.75 – Bet Now
There is plenty to like about Zoustyle and there was plenty of merit in his second placing at Caulfield.
The Queensland-trained four-year-old finished second behind Renewal and he’s only going to get better with more racing in Melbourne.
In Queensland he was a six-time winner from six starts and although yet to win in Melbourne, it’s only a matter of time.
Drawn well in barrier two and he looms as a major chance in the co-feature of the day.
Race 7. (17:05) Blue Sapphire (1200m)
#10 – Exhilarates @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Class is with Exhilarates, which has won four of her 10 starts and over $1.5 million in the bank.
The Magic Millions winner was beaten by Loving Gaby last start but she certainly wasn’t disgraced at Moonee Valley.
Her form prior to that included a 1.5-length win at Caulfield and having winning experience on this track is ideal.
We thought she would be paying around $2.40 to win, so punters are getting value worth taking.
Race 8. (17:45) FDC Ladies’ Day Vase (1600m)
#1 – Consensus – Bet Now
There was plenty of merit in the performance from Consensus last time out at Moonee Valley.
The Kiwi-trained runner battled on nicely for fifth behind Princess Jenni after doing plenty of work in the run.
She is a proven Group 1 winner across the Tasman and with 11 wins in the bank, she could add another to the tally here.
