There’s some great stakes racing action at Caulfield this Saturday which includes the Chairman’s Stakes, W.J. Adams Stakes and the Manfred Stakes.
Some of Australia’s best thoroughbreds are in action and the fields have come up trumps.
Racing at Rosehill is just as good and it should be a great day for punters.
Caulfield free tips & form
Race 1. (12:30) Inglis Premier (1200m)
#5 – Kinky Boom @ $2.30 – BET NOW
It’s a little concerning that Kinky Boom has drifted from $2 to $2.30, but it’s hard not to like the trial performance.
The Tony McEvoy-trained filly scored by 8.5 lengths at Morphettville and this stable is firing with their juveniles this season.
If she gets out to $3 then there’s real concern, but she looms as a winning chance, especially with Craig Williams in the saddle.
Race 2. (13:05) Chairman’s Stakes (1000m)
#1 – Encryption @ $4 – BET NOW
Punters are getting a good price for an improving colt which has placed behind some nice types so far.
The James Cummings-trained two-year-old finished third behind Qafila on debut at Caulfield before improving to run second at Flemington behind Run Naan.
That form should stack up nicely at this level and he has drawn to get every possible chance in barrier four.
Bookmakers opened him at $4.60 and there has been heavy support since.
Race 4. (14:15) Robert Hunter Handicap (2400m)
#5 – Last Week @ $2.20 – BET NOW
Last Week has given us plenty of reason to continue following him this season.
The Darren Weir-trained stayer has won two of his last three starts and rising to the staying distances has clearly worked for the four-year-old.
He scored by 1.3 lengths over 2500m at Flemington last start and dropping back to 2400m won’t be an issue here.
We’ve seen better staying fields and he should take advantage with only 54kg on his back.
Race 5. (14:50) Ladbrokes BM78 (1100m)
#12 – Eurack @ $3 – BET NOW
Eurack looked like a potential superstar last campaign and a win here would solidify that.
The four-year-old won all three career starts last year and she scored by a combined margin of nine lengths.
Her turn-of-foot was extremely impressive and although she’s taking on some seasoned types, include Handsome Thief, she looks to have the most upside.
She has already been backed in from $4.40 to $3 and expect that support to continue on race day.
Race 6. (15:25) W. J. Adams Stakes (1000m)
#3 – Snitty Kitty @ $1.80 – BET NOW
Punters will need to take the short odds, but it should be a good investment.
Snitty Kitty is a group two winner at her last start in October and she has won two of her three starts fresh up.
The winner of six from 11 has blistering pace from the barriers and the 1000m is going to suit perfectly.
Crystal Dreamer is in good form, but Snitty Kitty is the clear and obvious choice here and many punters will have her in their multi bets.
Race 8. (16:45) Manfred Stakes (1200m)
#10 – Bravo Tango @ $3.10 – BET NOW
Any form behind Nature Strip is going to be handy this season and Bravo Tango was brave in defeat last time out.
The three-year-old colt finished third behind Nature Strip down the Flemington straight and seeing as that was his first run in three months, it was a solid effort.
His only other defeat came behind Snitzepeg and that’s top form for this.
Rosehill free tips & form
Race 2. (13:25) Canonbury Stakes (1100m)
#1 – Performer @ $1.60 – BET NOW
Performer is at short odds, but he’s one of the Golden Slipper favourites for a reason.
The Chris Waller-trained juvenile was a solid winner on debut at Randwick when beating a hot field and he has since won both trials to prepare for this.
The son of Exceed And Excel has plenty of scope and he won’t be running in the Slipper unless he can put this field away with ease.
Race 3. (14:00) Widden Stakes (1100m)
#1 – Secret Lady @ $6 – BET NOW
Secret Lady caused a fair amount of interference in the Magic Millions 2YO, but she returns after a short break.
The Gary Portelli-trained filly looked good when winning at Rosehill in November before running second behind Quackerjack at Randwick.
She appeared to be travelling well at Gold Coast, but the jockey gave her no chance coming around the home turn. Jason Collett takes over now and that’s a positive.
Race 5. (15:10) Highway Handicap (1500m)
#12 – Kopi Luwak @ $1.95 – BET NOW
There were excuses for Kopi Luwak last start when finishing a length behind Acquittal at Randwick.
The Danny Williams-trained talent wasn’t given the best of rides from Tye Angland, but he looks a better chance in this.
He gets the inside draw to his advantage and although he’ll have to get past Acquittal again, he’s the most talented horse in this field and that should show here.
Race 7. (16:25) Expressway Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Global Glamour @ $2.80 – BET NOW
The money around group one winner Global Glamour is too good to pass up.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained mare has been running against the very best for quite some time now and her last start sixth at Gold Coast was forgivable.
She has won over $1.3 million and she’s coming up against horses which she has the experience and class edge over.
The two three-year-old’s are the danger, but she looks primed for this.
