Caulfield Racing Tips – Sat Apr 27

We will be at Caulfield this Saturday.

Track: Good 4. Rail: Out 5m entire circuit.

Best Bet: Race 6 – PRINCE OF SUSSEX

===

Race 1: BM78 Handicap 1000m

PROPELLE (14) has good tactical speed and with Meech out of action, Williams gets the ride. Hopefully he is positive early from the gate, she was good when on the pace two back then hit a little flat spot second-up before hitting the line well. Hard to beat here now fully fit.

Dangers:

WILLIAM THOMAS (2) is resuming after almost a year on the sidelines, he is a winner her eat the track previously and just needs an ounce of luck from the wide draw. I doubt he can sit without cover fresh and win. SAM’S IMAGE (5) will find this easier but is also horribly drawn, he will just fire out and try to find the top but may have to sit very wide. MISS STREET (8) has won her last two in easier grade, she will go forward and probably will be best served to take a sit in this grade against the boys.

Race 2: BM84 Handicap 1400m

OCEAN DEEP (10) has been up for a long time but is racing so consistently. If the leaders are hard to run down in the first, she comes right into play, she will jump and run and make her own luck out in front.

Dangers:

CALL IT A DAY (5) is another that will be looking for the front, he has been good at all four runs this campaign and gets some good weight relief with the claim. RENEWAL (3) had every chance behind him last time but can improve with the blinkers going on. FLYIING KRUPT (4) didn’t have much luck resuming then raced flat last time, she has a terrific overall record and expect her to be 100% for this third-up.

Race 3: VOBIS Gold Distaff Fillies and Mares Set Weights and Penalties 1400m

THINK I’M DREAMING (5) is flying this prep and has shown she has versatility in where she can settle. She probably looks best when she is able to settle in behind the speed and wind-up with one run.

Dangers:

RIVER JEWEL (4) and TWITCHY FRANK (1) both come through the same race last time, the winner of that has since run a belter in Sydney in harder grade. They were the two on-pacers in the race and look to take up the same positions here. TRULY DISCREET (2) was favoured the way the race was run when winning at Caulfield last time but she maps well again. Tough race with four or five live chances.

Race 4: VOBIS 3YO Sires Set Weights 1600m

TARWIN (3) had no luck when resuming at Sandown, he was held-up for the best part of a furlong before driving hard late to narrowly miss. He then came here last time and bolted in showing a brilliant turn-of-foot out wide on the track.

Dangers:

LIGULATE (2) travels down from NSW here he has been racing well, the problem I see is that he will be back with the top pick and he doesn’t look to have the same brilliance. SACCHARO (1) will probably go forward with the blinkers off from the wide draw, he comes through the same race as the top pick and featured in the steward’s report with a throat issue, so can be forgiven. WHAM (6) like a few of these also comes through that race, had every chance and would need to improve to feature in the major prizes.

Race 5: VOBIS Gold Dash 3YO Set Weights and Penalties 1100m

THINE IS THE POWER (9) is really knocking on the door for a win, she has been savaging the line lately and will run on hard from the back. She is on the quick 7-day back-up so they are obviously happy with her, maps well and the speed should be on.

Dangers:

COLOMBUS CIRCLE (2) and HALVORSEN (1) come through the same race here two weeks ago, the former beat the latter and the weight pull is the same here so hard to see the result reversing without significant improvement. ENBIHAAR (3) is drawn out but will get back anyway and looks the beneficiary, along with the top pick, of the likely good tempo set by those that will be big odds in the betting.

Race 6: The Showdown 2YO Set Weights 1200m

PRINCE OF SUSSEX (2) could not have been any more impressive in his Bendigo win a month ago. He sat mid-field before hitting the go button at the top of the straight and putting lengths on them in what seemed a few strides. He was eased down late for the easiest of wins, he could be something special. Micky Dee sticks with him and won’t be getting off anytime soon I would imagine.

Dangers:

STAND TO ATTENTION (4) will get back but ran on hard last time, he is likely to benefit from the good speed that will be present with the big field of youngsters. John Sadler has come out and given SARTORIAL SPLENDOUR (8) a big wrap in the media during the week, his win on debut at Terang was good when leading throughout but this is a lot tougher. Very happy to take him on off the inside draw in this field. GROOT (5) was in the same race as the top pick last time, he ran on well but still has a lot to learn.

Race 7: VOBIS Gold Heath Set Weights 2000m

MR QUICKIE (8) is flying, he takes on the older horses here after winning his first two this prep then brave in defeat last time. He was wide throughout here last time but had cover, he ran up and hit the front before being collared late. He may need a little luck getting away from the inside but I see that gate as the only barrier and what is likely to see him at a backable price, and not long odds-on.

Dangers:

MAHAMEDEIS (1) looks the obvious and only danger. HE will get back and be sweeping home, the jock will have the advantage of seeing where Mr Quickie is in the run and may be able to get momentum on him early in the straight. The main question mark is carrying the weight but if he doesn’t turn it into a sit-sprint he can wind-up strongly. Throw in RUNAWAY (2) and BARRY THE BAPTIST (3) for the minors only. It looks a race in two where the better tactics/ride will win the race.

Race 8: VOBIS Gold Mile Set Weights 1600m

WIDGEE TURF (1) against this lot at set weights?? Moral right? Well I agree he should be but the inside barrier may be his only worry. We know he gets back, Rawiller should be getting him off the rails as early as possible to take luck out of it, he should be just too quick late. He was beaten a long way in the Doncaster last start but was held-up at a vital stage, this certainly no Doncaster.

Dangers:

If Rawiller rides him like the good thing he is and takes luck out of it, there are no dangers. WAGING WAR (2) will get back but will need to get in front of Widgee early, EAGLE RIDGE (6) will probably need to be up on the speed and try to control it, same can be said about THINK BLEUE (9). If Widgee gets caught on the inside mid-race, he will be in trouble, if she is off early, he wins.

Race 9: VOBIS Gold Sprint Set Weights 1200m

Even though there is plenty of speed in this and MISS LEONIDAS (10) is drawn wide, I love the way she maps here. She will be able to carve across and sit outside the speed, able to control from the breeze or with cover, she will be too strong late for the others that will go forward.

Dangers:

ASHLOR (1) is very quick and will be on the speed, he gets the blinkers back on here but the real test for him is running it out strongly if there is pressure applied. ICONOCLASM (3) is the class of the race but might find the 1100m too short for him resuming., If they do go crazy though he will certainly be the one to look for late. They look the only three winning chances, DEMONSTRATE (2) will get back and can pop up every now and then, he will need to be ridden for luck though and get the splits late.
