Caulfield Racing Tips – Sat Apr 13

We will be at Caulfield this Saturday.

Track: Good 4. Rail: Out 13m entire circuit.

Best Bet: Race 3 – LA BELLA DIOSA

===

Race 1: Super VOBIS 2YO Handicap 1200m

Tough race, so many that have performed well on debut that are taking on some that are here deeper into their preps. SUPER SETH (4) could not have been more impressive at his debut run, he was mid-field before circling at Ballarat and ran on well to crush his rivals by 6. This is harder but he looks to have a stack of talent.

Dangers:

MAYAN (2) won well on debut in SA before getting crushed by a smart one last time. He worked home ok the race and looks better suited here at Caulfield. HIGHTAIL (1) was probably hoping for bigger things ie a Slipper run but after a poor Pago Pago showing on the heavy track, he has been off the scene for a month and looks well in here. Just a little worrying that this may be the afterthought and he was slow to recover in Sydney. STAND TO ATTENTION (14) looks a good place chance if he gets a run, he had no luck at Bendigo when held-up at a vital; stage before flashing late.

Race 2: BM78 Handicap 1440m

MOUNT KILCOY (8) was super in his first two runs back, he got well back and charged home to just miss the placings at both., he then went to Sandown and pulled up lame in a race where he was heavily supported, gets the great claim and can produce fresh off a six-week break.

Dangers:

The scratching’s will play a big role in this race, if SNOGGING (13) and PAREMUS BOY (14) get a start, they come right into calculations. Wait until race-day to have a bet to see ow the final field shapes. DR DRILL (7) is one of a couple of imports having his first Australian start for the Maher/Eustace stable today, watch the betting with him.

Race 3: Fillies and Mares Handicap 1440m

LA BELLA DIOSA (1) tackled much harder races than this last Spring and wasn’t disgraced, she resumed at Randwick at Group Three level and ran on hard. She then went to Bendigo for the Gold Bracelet, was an easing favourite and never got into it in a race tempo didn’t suit those from the back. She looks well in at this grade.

Dangers:

OCEAN DEEP (7) will be up on the speed, no doubt she will try to lead off the inside draw. ICE GIRL (8) comes through the same form line as her. Had every chance last time but gets in well here with no weight and the claim. TEMPLE OF BEL (5) was also in that race at Sandown, never got into it from the back and will improve with the blinkers on for the first time. Happy to risk See Me Exceed here.

Race 4: Handicap 2425m

STEEL PRINCE (3) has only had the two runs back this prep, he won fresh over 1800m then went to Mornington on their stand alone day and was heavily tried to win again. He had the perfect ride and although the margin wasn’t convincing, the form out of that race should stack up.

Dangers:

MANNING ROAD (10) has to step up a stack in grade here but it was hard not to be impressed by her win at Sandown last time, albeit in a much easier race. She is flying, hopefully they just sit back with her and come with one run. BONDEIGER (1) is dropping back from the two miles of the Adelaide Cup, he was flying prior to that and gets some good weight relief. ROCKARRAL (9) is certainly on the up, they tinker a little with the gear here but he maps well and will be storming home with no weight n his back.

Race 5: Galilee Series Final 3YO Set Weights and Penalties 2425m

SECRET BLAZE (1) had been finding too tough behind the best of his age group earlier in the prep, he went to Bendigo last time and was well supported, sat back before peeling wide and running on too well. That was the lead-up to this and many of rivals line-up again.

Dangers:

BUDD FOX (2) ran second to him that day, he did have his chance but liked the way he stuck on when headed over the last 100m. TRANSACT (3) ran third after racing on the pace, he will go forward and try to lead all the way. AMERICAN IN PARIS (8) will get back but has been running on well and is one for the exotics.

Race 6: Super VOBIS 3YO Handicap 1440m

WHAM (8) was good when resuming, admittedly everything went right for him and the winning margin wasn’t huge, but it was a professional win and showed he had come back well. He then went to the Bendigo Guineas where he was huge odds, had no luck when the runs came and flashed late and was beaten under a length.

Dangers:

UNFAIR DISMISSAL (5) has raced fairly in SA at his last couple, he will be carving over from out wide to be on the speed and the blinkers should see him improve. SACCHARO (4) also ran on well in the Bendigo Guineas races and was well in the market, he was costly the start prior when beaten at a short quote. He also gets the blinkers for the first time. OUTRAGEOUS (1) over-raced at Bendigo, he will go forward and can be there for a long way if he settles better.

Race 7: Super VOBIS 3YO Handicap 1000m

Probably the toughest race on the card and a lot will depend on which, if any, emergencies get a start here. If the field is without scratching’s, HALVORSEN (3) goes on top. He was good winning the Gold Carat two back at the Valley then ran on well at Caulfield last time. He is resuming and has won fresh, watch the betting in a very open race.

Dangers:

If LEITER (15) gets a run as the second emergency, he goes on top. He debuted at Bendigo late in the Spring, led and bolted in. He is drawn wide but that is ok here at Caulfield for on-pacers over 1000m. COLUMBUS CIRCLE (11) maps beautifully, is racing well but this is a lot harder than what he has been racing here in his first prep. FINE DANE (4) will have all the options early off the inside gate, he has the tactical speed to lead or take the sit.

Race 8: Bel Esprit Stakes Handicap 1100m

EDUARDO (3) may have bitten off more than he could chew at his last couple of runs, he showed enormous promise at his last campaign and has run into some stars this time in. Placing in the Oakleigh Plate resuming, he then went to the Newmarket and was a little plain second-up behind one of the best fields of sprinters you would ever see. He returns to a track that he has not run a bad race at, the field is nothing compared to what he has been racing and he will be sharp for this third-up. Draws beautifully as well.

Dangers:

BONS AWAY (2) is a lovely animal, he comes through the same formlines but has had the one extra run at Mornington in their sprint feature three weeks ago where he once again flashed home. He always needs everything to go right but he can produce some amazing closing sectionals. Play them two-out in the Quaddie. Throw in MILWAUKEE (8) and DESERT LASHES (6) for the exotics only.

Race 9: Handicap 1600m

I was really keen on PLEIN CIEL (7) last start, although he failed to run a place, he had a stack of excuses. He was held-up for a furlong before the 200m mark then was very tight all the way to the line. This looks no harder, he does get his third new jockey this prep but if he gets the back of the right horse as they sweep into the straight, he will be finishing best.

Dangers:

HAPPY PHARRELL (6) is an interesting runner having his first Australian run, he will probably want a little further but keep an eye on the betting fresh here for the Maher/Eustace team. FIERCE IMPACT (5) was beaten less than 3 lengths resuming by the Doncaster favourite, he ran on well in a race where that wasn’t the favourable pattern and handles all conditions. Don’t lose on him. CALL ME HANDSOME (4) rarely runs a bad race, he usually settles in behind the speed, a little concerning that he has not won in 6 runs this campaign though.
