Caulfield Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Gailo Chop ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet
Gailo Chop hasn’t produced a winning performance for some time now, but that was an encouraging effort at Caulfield last start.
The 10-year-old was only 2.4 lengths behind Russian Camelot and that could be a sign that his career isn’t done with yet.
He owns three wins at Caulfield and seven at this distance, so we wouldn’t be ruling him out of contention just yet.
(2) Humidor (Best Each Way – $6) Bet @ Sportsbet
Humidor turned back the clock when scoring a win big win at Moonee Valley last month. The Cox Plate placegetter followed that up with a second placing behind Russian Camelot last start.
There is nothing wrong with his form and although he has two lengths to make up on the favourite, his class will take him close.
The only downside are his statistics at Caulfield, which includes 15 starts for only one win, but he has five placings, so consider at the each-way quote.
(3) Levendi ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet
It had been a long time since Levendi has shown anything on the racetrack but he finally returned a positive performance last start.
The Peter Gelagotis-trained six-year-old ran sixth behind Al Galayel last month, which has since been franked. It was a good showing from the lightly-tried runner, which owns five wins from 15 starts.
He has battled injuries throughout his career and he has yet to finish in the first three in five attempts at Caulfield.
(4) Harbour Views (Best Roughie – $31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters are getting good odds for Harbour Views, which hasn’t lived up to expectations this spring but he hasn’t had the best luck.
The six-year-old son of Le Havre finished sixth at Caulfield last start when racing in the worst part of the track. He looked better when running third at The Valley last month, so punters should look to that form.
After opening at $23, his odds have drifted out to $31. However, there is no reason why he couldn’t figure in the finish.
(5) Arcadia Queen ($4.60) Bet @ Sportsbet
Arcadia Queen is another runner that hasn’t had much luck this season, but the ability is certainly there.
The Williams-trained mare is coming off back-to-back placings behind Pretty Brazen and Russian Camelot. She is a professional winner of six from 12 starts, so she must be respected, but the odds are slightly too short.
The rise to 2000m might not suit here and although she is a nice type, she might be better suited over 1400-1600m.
(6) Russian Camelot (Best Bet – $1.55) Bet @ Sportsbet
Russian Camelot deserves to be favourite following his win at Caulfield last start. It came over similar opposition to what he faces and the rise from 1800m to 2000m is only going to help his cause.
The well-bred son of Camelot is already a Group 1 winner after only seven starts, and there is supreme confidence with punters.
The $1.55 is likely to shorten between now and race day, so take the odds available for the most progressive horse in the race.
