Caulfield Cup Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:15) Magic Millions Grand BM80 (1700m)
#7 – Mimi’s Award – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare needed the fresh up run at Sandown, so we’re expecting a much better effort this time in.
She finished ninth behind Sirileo Miss, but her form last season included three wins and three placings from six starts.
She is a talented type who is worth following.
Race 2. (12:50) Tile Importer Trophy (1400m)
#4 – Lady Adelaide – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to score back-to-back wins is Lady Adelaide, who exited maiden grades with a 1.5-length win at Sale.
The daughter of Adelaide looks to have a bright future, and her form should improve as she gets over longer distances.
Punters could get each-way odds, so don’t leave her off your ticket.
Race 3. (13:25) Polytrack Gothic Stakes (1400m)
#4 – Sandy Prince – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sandy Prince looked good when winning consecutive starts earlier this preparation before running two solid efforts.
The Hayes-trained three-year-old ran second behind Derby hopeful Forgot You at Moonee Valley before running fourth behind Forgot You again last start.
It’s good form for this race, so expect a nice effort.
Race 4. (14:00) Schweppes Ethereal Stakes (2000m)
#10 – Kapalua Sunset @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Danny O’Brien lines up the three-year-old filly who scored impressively by seven lengths at Kyneton last start.
The daughter of Tavistock meets a much harder field, but we were impressed with the ease of the win. She will need to improve on that run, but she looks to have natural improvement in store.
$2.25 is a good price and she could firm to an odds-on quote.
Race 5. (14:35) Neds Classic (2000m)
#6 – Gunstock @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gunstock looked the goods at Cranbourne two back before running third behind El Patroness at Flemington.
The colt by Tavistock was finishing hard on that occasion and only narrowly missed, so we expect that race to be a good form guide.
Rising in distance doesn’t do his chances any harm.
Race 6. (15:10) Neds Moonga Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Zoutori @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zoutori has the class edge on this field after winning almost $2 million in stakes from his eight career wins.
The six-year-old returned to form when running a nose behind Kementari last start, and Kementari is on the ballot for The Everest.
60kg isn’t easy to carry, but he is easily the best-performed runner in this field.
Race 7. (15:45) Lexus Tristarc Stakes (1400m)
#4 – Chaillot @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Archie Alexander-trained mare owns five wins from nine starts, including an impressive win at Sandown last time out.
She got there on the line to beat a quality field, and although she was unbeaten in four unbeaten starts, she is capable with a run under her belt.
$5 is a value price for a runner with loads of potential.
Race 8. (16:30) Carlton Draught Alinghi Stakes (1100m)
#9 – Emanate @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Emanate looks ready to fire after a solid effort at Kembla Grange last start behind Count de Rupee.
The James Cummings-trained five-year-old mare runs her best races over the distance, and she handles all track conditions, so that’s a bonus.
Damien Oliver rides and punters get odds well worth taking.
Race 10. (17:50) McCafe Caulfield Sprint (1000m)
#11 – Enthaar @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly scored wins at her first two starts before running sixth behind Artorius at Caulfield.
She has faced excellent age-group fields throughout her career, so her form stacks up, and she gets in with only 53kg on her back.
Her odds have dropped since markets opened, which is a good sign.
