Caulfield horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:15) Keno Classic BM80 (1000m)
#9 – Extreme Pride – Bet Now
Extreme Pride has hit top gear this campaign with three consecutive victories.
The four-year-old mare scored her first of three wins at Pakenham by five lengths before recording victories at Seymour and Sale.
This is a rise in class but she won by two lengths last start and seeing Craig Williams stick with her is a very good sign.
Each-way odds should be on offer.
Race 2. (12:50) QMS Media Plate (1400m)
#1 – Ready Set Sail – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly has good form lines, despite her run for 11th at Moonee Valley when fresh up.
She owns a win at Flemington which came over Flit, who has subsequently won the Thousand Guineas at Caulfield.
That’s form that stands alone in this race and if she can return to her best, she’ll put lengths on this field.
Good chance to redeem herself.
Race 3. (13:25) Gothic Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Heirborn – Bet Now
We have backed Heirborn his first two starts and there’s no reason to jump off his back now.
The three-year-old scored by 3.8 lengths on debut at Bendigo before beating a tough field at Flemington on a heavy track last start.
He needed to call upon his class to win that race and he came through it with flying colours.
He missed a run due to track conditions but has since placed in a trial at Cranbourne and he should strip fitter for this run.
Race 4. (14:00) Ladbrokes Classic (2000m)
#3 – Warning – Bet Now
This is a tough field to line up but Warning improved nicely when rising in distance last time out.
He rises to 2000m for this run and considering he scored by two lengths over 1800m at Flemington last start, the rise in distance holds no fears.
Anthony Freedman lines up the progressive stayer and he should be able to live up to expectations against this level of opposition.
Race 5. (14:35) Alinghi Stakes (1100m)
#2 – Humma Humma – Bet Now
Humma Humma is a four-time winner from 16 starts and she could notch her first win on this track.
The four-year-old mare has placed in all three starts at Caulfield and those have all come in top-graded races.
She hit top gear when flashing home to win at Moonee Valley last start and that came over the unsuitable distance of 955m.
Stretching out to 1100m here only strengthens her winning chances.
Race 6. (15:10) Ethereal Stakes (2000m)
#7 – Vegas Jewel – Bet Now
She has had only two starts but Vegas Jewel has looked impressive winning both.
The Mark Kavanagh-trained three-year-old won at Echuca on debut before doubling down by winning at Moonee Valley.
It was her Valley win which created a buzz and the 2.5-length win should hold up nicely in this grade.
Tough field to beat but punters should be getting each-way odds for the rising stayer.
Race 7. (15:45) Caulfield Sprint (1000m)
#10 – McLaren @ $7 – Bet Now
Punters will be taking a risk with McLaren but he’s a speedy colt which could have matured in the offseason.
The Snowden-trained three-year-old showed ability last campaign when winning at Rosehill on debut before taking on some slick types.
He finished just behind the likes of Time to Reign and Pin Sec, so that form could stack up nicely in this grade.
Carries 53kg and that brings him into contention.
Race 8. (16:30) Moonga Stakes (1400m)
#2 – Royal Meeting – Bet Now
We don’t rate European sprinters very highly but Royal Meeting is a miler in the making which could win over 1400m here.
He’s a European runner for Saeed Bin Suroor which is clearly targeting the bigger races later in the spring carnival.
This isn’t the strongest field you’ll ever see and the son of Invincible Spirit could take advantage of that.
He’s certainly an interesting runner so watch the market.
Race 10. (17:50) Tristarc Stakes (1400m)
#7 – Pohutukawa @ $4.60 – Bet Now
That was a very nice run from Pohutukawa at Flemington last time out and she’s only going to improve.
This will be her first start around Caulfield but she’s a four-time winner from 14 starts which could have easily won more.
Luck will be needed from barrier 11 but she will get back in the run and look to slingshot them late down the outside.
