It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide Caulfield Cup 2018 publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Caulfield. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Qms Media Plate 1400m

Khulasas is going to look to be playing catch up here with Delusions likely to take a front leading position. Khulasa was impressive when running on third against stiffer competition. Khulasa has a bit more fitness and experience with big crowds, and likes to perform for them. Delusions has a big engine and will take tracking down in front, but, Khulasa and Aasira both have legitimate claims here.

Top Pick – Khulasa
Next Best – Delusions
Longshot – Aasira

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 2 – Polytrack Gothic Stakes 1400m

Yulong January is a horse we have followed since its debut, winning on a heavy Randwick was impressive, but, the two wins prior on the firmer ground measures up well here against Ranier, who was unlucky not to win last start after only being able to get through late. If Ranier can get a bit of luck a little earlier, can be right in this – Hugh Bowman’s non-Winx record in Victoria is quite bad however. Kaplumpich is a real dark horse and could be the bolt in the dark here at a current quote of $21 at the time of writing. Impressive winner last start, and, anything close to last effort will be enough here.

Top Pick – Yulong January
Next Best – Ranier
Longshot – Kaplumpich

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 3 – Mccafe Caulfield Sprint 1000m

Eduardo was super impressive last start, despite missing the win. Dropping a furlong here suits and has the speed to come home over the top of this field. Miss Leonidas can never be discredited here and is very deadly over this range, especially with Dwayne Dunn riding, who has a nice rapport with the horse. Damian Lane and Quilista could be the value here. Distance suits and will enjoy the speed of this race. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Eduardo
Next Best – Miss Leonidas
Longshot – Quilista

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 4 – Carlton Draught Alinghi Stakes 1100m

Working From Home is a dangerous horse here, perfect second up so far in it’s career, has won three from five at this range and is unbeaten at this class. Last ride can be forgiven when running into traffic and failing to get free. Expecting a better showing here, and, with a bit of luck, can get the win. From Within can’t be denied here. Will look to hit the front here on a track that favours front runners, and is hunting a fourth straight here. Will have a tall order, but, will be in the mix. Subtle Grey could be the value point here. Looking for the hat-trick here and pulled off the nice run last start went bursting through late. A run similar to that could be enough here.

Top Pick – Working From Home
Next Best – From Within
Longshot/Value – Subtle Grey

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 5 – Nz Bloodstock Ethereal Stakes 2000m

The New Zealander can’t be overlooked here with Verry Elleegant, who is coming in on the back an impressive four run resume, two wins a second and a third last run. John Allen can get the mid card win here on the horse that has the sectionals, form and a favourable barrier draw. Will be hard to beat. Greysful Glamour has claims here, impressive winner last start, and Tim Clark has made the trip down south for the ride here. The hot Sydney hoop will be looking to repeat the last run, and, the horse has every chance here. The Nicconi filly, Scenic Sight can’t be discredited, last start win was very eye catching, despite it being a lower class. The firmer ground is a plus here.

Top Pick – Verry Elleegant
Next Best – Greysful Glamour
Longshot – Scenic Sight

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 6 – Ladbrokes Classic 2000m

Extra Brut is in fantastic form right now, winner at track, distance and class last start and finds a less difficult task here today. A fourth win is on the horizon here today. Sikorsky could be the party pooper here, has shown great late speed previously, and, if this race is run at a moderate tempo, could be right in this one. Value runner here could be Star Missile despite the awkward barrier draw. Kerron McEvoy has been relishing group races this spring and it could be more of the same here. Star Missile does have a lot to do here, but, will sit in cover throughout and could come on late.

Top Pick – Extra Brut
Next Best – Sikorsky
Longshot – Star Missile

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 7 – Ladbrokes Coongy Cup 2000m

Looking to continue the mid race favourite run, Best Of Days, the British fire engine that just has a massive motor is back here again with James McDonald in the saddle again. The Godolphin runner is in great form, and, with more ground, may have won last start, expecting another big effort here again. The older runner here, Life Less Ordinary, who ran on fourth last start carrying a bit of extra weight which is gone here. A win wouldn’t shock. Tally can never be counted out, at its best, can be one of the most competitive runners in this race. Has the late speed to shock here.

Top Pick – Best Of Days
Next Best – Life Less Ordinary
Longshot – Tally

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 8 – Stella Artois Caulfield Cup 2400m

Kings Will Dream has looked like it will eat up the two extra furlongs here on last effort when coming up short. A stayer that is going to enjoy this type of stage to race one, has drawn well, and, is running light. Hard to beat. Youngstar has drawn awkwardly but looked flashy last start when digging deep to grab a place. Run suggested the extra distance will suit here. One to watch. Ace High is the best of the rest here. Not in unfamiliar territory at a group one race, has won this level previously. Has shown a superior turn of foot in this type of condition and is going to be highly competitive here a good value. Will find beating the favourite a tall order, but, capable of doing so.

Top Pick – Kings Will Dream
Next Best – Youngstar
Longshot – Ace High

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 9 – Schweppes Tristarc Stakes 1400m

Really interesting race this one, with, one clear standout on recent runs in Invincibella, who just ran dominantly in her last race at Flemington, has the winning hoop return here in Hugh Bowman, and, finds a field that really lacks top end speed over the closing furlong. If Invincibella can stalk the lead runners and find a seam, will be hard to beat. Miss Sisska at such long odds is wrong. Impressive winner against speedier horses two starts back, defeating the highlighted runner in Naantali. Has a tall task here, but, is definitely not without claims here. Ellicazoom is the best of the rest here in a rather uninspiring field. Expecting a big effort here today with Bayliss back in the saddle. Win won’t shock.

Top Pick – Invincibella
Next Best – Miss Sisska
Longshot – Ellicazoom

TOP PICK
Caulfield Punters Guide

Race 10 – Ladbrokes Moonga Stakes 1400m

Mr.Sneaky has run well all races this prep, and, despite a sixth last start, did a lot of work to come in to that position impressively. Drawn a little wide, but, has the ability to run hard late in this one, and, time ratings over the final two furlongs are better than most in this race. A bit of luck and will be hard to keep out. Can’t deny Peaceful State credit here, an impressive run two starts back in the Chandler McLeod Stakes, and, on that effort, can run on late. Will be swooping late with Mr.Sneaky in a dash for cash. Edge goes to Mr.Sneaky there. Dreamforce will look to push for the lead early, and, on a track that favours that, can lead from start to finish. If Dreamforce can put enough of a gap between the front of the pack and the rear – Mr.Sneaky and Peaceful State will need massive efforts to get there.

Top Pick – Mr.Sneaky
Next Best – Peaceful State
Longshot/Value – Dreamforce

Devonport

Race 4

With there being a bevvy of races on today – and one meet not having a good amount of standouts, we are going to do something a little different today as opposed to the Punters Guide, and list a few races with runners that tickle our fancy here, and the first cab off the rank is Devonport, where we are going to go with the impressive Blackberry Rose. Main concern here for Blackberry Rose and Craig Newitt is to not let Emsgem get too far ahead as Froggy did last time against this horse when riding Emceeoh. Blackberry Rose does its best when running on from the back of the pack and today’s race, shouldn’t be any different. Blackberry Rose will need to run closer today to get the win as Emsgem will look to bolt to the lead and not give it up. Another danger is Pontypaul who drops in class, but, Emsgem and Blackberry Rose are the top two chances in this one.

SELECTION

Race 7

Anthony Darmanian is great in Tasmania when it comes to the races after number five. This one is race seven, and he has the best of the day at Devonport in Husson Park, a runner with strong lineage from Husson. Came up against a horse that was in its own element last start in Red Pearl who destroyed the field, today’s field is a bit better of a match up for Husson Park today. Coming in on the back of a first and a second over last two respectively and yet to be lower than second at this track. Maps well for this race and has the best early speed for the short trip – will just need show a bit more fight down the straight here today.

SELECTION

Wyong

Race 1

Opening race here at Wyong maps as a two horse duel between Homework, who is likely to lead, and Elaborate who is likely to stalk. The edge here goes to Homework, who has looked better over the longer trip – finishing second over 1500m, against a better field, where Elaborate finished third against a weaker field, with a better jockey last start. Today, Homework has drawn well and will take up the lead again and challenge the rest to catch up – which if the run is similar to last, they won’t be able to. Jay Ford is going for his third ride on Homework today – and the two work well together, will be difficult for any other runner to win if Homework gets the lead.

SELECTION

Nowra

Race 4

Interesting little race here with a lot of attention going towards Chad Lever and Highly Desired, however, not enough is going towards Atomic Blast, who ran on gamely last start and gets an upgrade in the saddle to the red hot, Kayla Nisbet. Had every chance in the world last start to win over a shorter distance, but, the shortness of the trip was the issue, as it would have gotten there with an extra half furlong, almost gets that full extension here and will be competitive once again. Nowra has a very long straight, with a 400m line, which really helps Atomic Blast here who is over the odds.

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Taree

Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

The Punters Guide returns to form, nailing back-to-back quaddies. With some big fields, and a few competitive races – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Backing up from a big day yesterday, including a quaddie win at Newcastle.

Race 1 – HICKS BUSINESS SERVICES F&M MAIDEN 1250m

Tartufo Bianco is the pick of the opener here. Impressive last start on debut and unlucky to just miss its debut win. Has an easier field here and gets the extra metres it needed to win last start. Expect a bold run here today. Lees has a good chance at taking the first with the two best horses in the opener with Tartufo Bianco and Think Free. The So You Think filly is on debut here but, from all accounts is ready to fire. Has the pedigree and willing to take it on here. Longshot value in this one goes to Le Faberge, strong run second last start, and, anything close to that form will have him close again. One to watch.

Top Pick – Tartufo Bianco
Next Best – Think Free
Longshot – Le Faberge

TOP PICK

Race 2 – PAGE ELEVEN MARKETING CG&E MAIDEN 1250m

Eskimo Commander put in a lot of hard work last start and, is ready to fire here today. The favourite doesn’t have what you want on debut – doesn’t mean it can’t run well, but, it doesn’t rate well here where Eskimo Commander only needs to replicate last effort to win here. Big engine and can win this one second up. The Excites gelding here is the next best option. Neptune was disappointing last start on a first up effort, will be second up here today and strips fitter. Slight drop in class as well which helps, and, will go close. Chasin makes a small drop in class today, but is second up here today, and placed second up previously. Has the ability to win here and is slightly over where it should be valued.

Top Pick – Eskimo Commander
Next Best – Neptune
Longshot – Chasin

TOP PICK

Race 3 – EDDIES FRESH CHICKENS PLATE 1600m

Grand Soleil is an undeserving short priced favourite here, this doesn’t mean that it can’t win, but, it represents no value – and it hasn’t proven that it can beat this field even dropping in grade to have an edge. Unimpressive over last few starts which really opens the door to some value here. Best value here is in the impressive Eye Was, who had an eye catching win last start when beating James Richard, at this track with the same jockey, nothing says that it can be repeated. Our Espostio is another impressive runner that scored a good win last up, and, has the in form Rachel Murray in the saddle. Expect another bold run here again today. Ravitude is another here with legitimate claims, good value, has shown good late speed that could capitalise on a slowish looking race. Win wouldn’t surprise.

Top Pick – Eye Was
Next Best – Our Esposito
Longshot – Ravitude

TOP PICK

Race 4 – DAWSONS WHOLESALE SMALLGOODS 2000m

Serious Dancer has been prepped for this race well, and comes in on a good run of form, with back to back seconds and looking to go one better over the right distance here. Looked hungry for more running room over last couple of efforts and is getting that lift here today while also dropping in class. One to beat. Miss Zodiac has been just off the money on five of eight runs over this distance, and, will be the speed horse of this race. Expected to sit off the pace and use that strong turn of foot to get this one late. Expect a bold run. Value runner here today is Clune’s Rocket. The old 9-year-old still has plenty left in the tank and is a getting its first try at the ten furlongs today. One to keep an eye on here can win.

Top Pick – Serious Dancer
Next Best – Miss Zodiac
Longshot – Clune’s Rocket

TOP PICK

Race 5 – TAREE SPORTS CLUB BENCHMARK 58 1000m

Tough race here to start the quaddie in one of the most open races of the day. But, the nod here will go to Belinda Hodder and Stoddart. If Hodder can overcome the wide barrier, she will be right in this one. Stoddart enjoys riding just off the lead horses and, with a bit of luck, will be able to get across without getting caught wide. If Hodder can save some stamina for the end of the race without too much early work – Stoddart can win this, showing a great turn of foot previously. Typhoon Bonny would be the top pick here if not coming in off a spell. Has won first up previously and gets the claim with Graham in the saddle as well as dropping in class. Has every chance to win here. Best value is Outsmartem, dropping in class, but, caught a wide barrier and will need to get across early. However, Outsmartem possesses a lot of early speed and will look to push to the lead. If it can dictate the pace of the race, it has shown that it can go post-to-post previously.

Top Pick – Stoddart
Next Best – Typhoon Bonny
Longshot – Outsmartem

TOP PICK

Race 6 – R & L REFRIGERATION CLASS 1 1000m

At short odds – Foxy’s Foxinator maps too well for this field and the market is reflecting this. Belinda Hodder doesn’t squander chances like this, and, with the added kicker of running well from a wide barrier, Foxy’s Foxinator will prove hard to beat here. Impulsive Maneuver is a real threat here. Coming in fresh and placed first-up previously, gets the in form McGuren in the saddle, expect a bold run here. Allez Rev is the best of the rest here. Hull has run in a strong third with this horse last start in this class and distance – will be thereabouts again.

Top Pick – Foxy’s Foxinator
Next Best – Impulsive Maneuver
Longshot – Allez Rev

TOP PICK

Race 7 – MNCRA AWARDS HOPKINS LIVERMORE CUP 1400m

Another rather open race here, with a few that look every chance to win it. However, the one that maps the best here is the Steven Fell trained and Andrew Gibbons ridden Alot Like Home. Gibbons rode for an impressive win over six furlongs last start and, the trainer promptly moved the horse up to seven furlongs for this race. Has all the potential to repeat last start success as when winning looked like it could have kept going. Marathon can’t be ignored here. Winner of five from nine attempts at the distance, running lighter here by 7kgs compared to last start third, a win here wouldn’t surprise. Profiler is the value runner here, winner at class and distance previously, last start third was impressive when running against a better field of runners. Can go close.

Top Pick – Alot Like Home
Next Best – Marathon
Longshot – Profiler

Top Pick

Race 8 – TAREE TRUCK CENTRE CLASS 2 1400m

Another tricky race here, with two real big standouts, but, the nod goes to the one with value in Saint Denis. Ran impressively this prep to grab multiple seconds, and, maps well against this field. Only missed last race as Hermosa Reward had a great kick in the dying embers of the race. Run similar to last outing will be enough here. African Guy is the next best. Form is strong being just off a win over last three starts and will be looking to finish this one off a little better than last when just not having that little bit more. Has the ability, just needs some luck from the wider gate. Sniponet has been prepped for this race after a disappointing fifth last start, Gibbons has the ride and has drawn well near the rail. will look to roll forward and fight for leadership with Saint Denis, track favours lead horses and could do enough to win here.

Top Pick – Saint Denis
Next Best – African Guy
Longshot/Value – Sniponet
