Previous Caulfield Tips:

July 15

Race 4 - LAMING RACING HANDICAP (2000m) 1:30pm

A rider switch from 1.5kg claiming apprentice Jordan Childs to 3kg claiming apprentice Brandon Stockdale sees KIWIA get in with just half a kilogram more following his impressive last start win at the track and trip. Was never in doubt last time and can only be fitter now. Royal Order didn’t fire with the blinkers on last time and could challenge here but the wide barrier is a concern. 

Race 8 - LUCRF SUPER SUPPORTS JOCKEYS - 1200m - 04:10pm

GREY STREET has been brilliant in all four runs at Caulfield this campaign - finishing 2nd to Miss Vista when first-up over 1100m, defeating that galloper over 1100m, and then finishing runner-up in both runs over 1200m. The tempo was against last start which made it hard to run down Sullivan Bay, but with a bit more early speed this time, Grey Street can finish best with just 53kg on his back. 

Race 9 - OTI RACING HANDICAP (1400m) 4:45pm

Looking for some value here. Schism was very dominant last start and if he backs up, he must have come through the run in good order. Top hoop Beau Mertens has stuck with him and is likely to get the gun run behind Airalign and Mihany from barrier 4. However, AIRALIGN was only just caught last time after trying to lead all the way at the track and trip, and he now drops 8kg on that run. The big weight drop should see him give a very big kick off the bend, and with the shorter straight, Schism may struggle to pick him up. 

July 1


The fact that ROYAL ORDER gets blinkers for the first time after a stunning win over 2000m last time suggests he’s at his peak now and can improve again. He defeated Kiwia last time and meets that galloper 1kg worse at the weights, but he has more upside and can get the prize again.


The most in-form trainer in the country is Frankie Stockdale who has scored five wins and two 2nd placings from his last seven runners. That trend looks set to continue on Saturday for the stable with three-year-old filly UNIQUE LOVELY aiming for the hat-trick. The daughter of Bel Esprit took out her maiden in style when second-up this campaign, and despite not being suited by the Moonee Valley circuit with her get back and run on style, she was too good for them. She looks better suited stepping up to 1100m at Caulfield, and with Invictum Domina likely to set a hot early pace as she burns across from the wide gate, Unique Lovely can charge over the top of them late.

Race 9 - QUAYCLEAN HANDICAP (1800m) 4:40pm

I like the South Australian visitor, BELUGA BLUE, who was never in the hunt last time at Moonee Valley. From the outset, she didn’t want to race and was a long way back throughout – maybe she didn’t appreciate the 60.5kg on her back as it was the heaviest weight she has carried in 22 starts. Jockey Stephen Baster was scrubbing her ears off just to keep in touch with the field and she was still last as they cornered. But when she finally balanced up in the straight, she really started to launch at them. She now goes up in class but drops to 54kg, and although this is tougher, she finished runner-up in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and has previously won over this trip. She’s a real threat to finish over the top of them at nice odds.

May 13


SPREADEAGLED looks primed for this and gets in with a postage stamp on his back. He led and was run down late when first-up, then following a 30-day break, he finished two lengths from Lake Como on a Heavy track. He’s better suited on a drier surface, and with those two runs under his belt, and just 51.5kg, he can try and lead from the wide gate and hold them off. Carried 55.5kg at his only other attempt at this grade and wasn’t beaten far, so he gets in really well at the weights.

Race 6 - CHANDLER MACLEOD HANDICAP (2000m) 2:55pm

Look for a massive run from NEVERLAND on Saturday. The stable tell me this mare is going extremely well and although she has to carry top weight (59.5kg), she hasn’t contested a race down in this class for a long time. She’ll be much improved for her first-up run and look for her storming home over the top of them. Each-way!

Race 7 - NOEL RUNDLE HANDICAP (2000m) 3:35pm

MONGOLIAN WOLF scored a big win in Sydney at his first run for the Weir stable, and he can go back-to-back against his own age group. He should get the run of the race from barrier 5, while he also looks better suited on a dry surface having scored two good wins in New Zealand on Good tracks.

April 29

Race 4 - 1:55PM Changing Places Real Estate Handicap (1100 METRES)

MOONLITES CHOICE comes off a 4th behind Merriest when resuming a fortnight ago and meets that galloper 2.5kg better off at the weights. On that occasion he finished just under a length away and an added bonus is that he loves wet tracks. He has had two starts for two wins on rain-affected going and should take further improvement out of his previous result as he was first up. The Darren Weir-trained galloper should find a slot just worse than midfield and will be suited by a likely solid tempo up front, as there looks to be a stack of speed in the race through the likes of Snitty Kitty and Menambra. He will run well. 

Race 6 - 3:15PM Next Payments Handicap (1200 METRES)

ARTIE DEE TWO returned to form with a big win at his last start, charging home at Moonee Valley in the Super VOBIS 3-Y-O Plate (1200) and look for him to hold his form here. He defeated Ken's Dream by more than two lengths at the Valley and has since had a freshen up. The Darren Weir-trained galloper has had one start at Caulfield for a 7th placing but that was in a hot race at Group 3 level in which the subsequent Group 1 winner, Russian Revolution, prevailed. The son of Artie Schiller carries top weight of 58kg but with the 1.5kg claim from leading apprentice, Ben Allen, he should be hard to hold out. 

Race 9 - 5:05PM Treasury Wine Estates Handicap (1600 METRES)

CURRAGH lines up in the last event of the day at Caulfield and it looks a bit of a race in three between the former Kiwi, The Chairman and Fastnet Latina. On the likely wet track, the one to go for may be Curragh. The Trent Bussutin and Natalie Young-trained galloper has won three from four on rain affected going and while Fastnet Latina is an up and comer, he is unproven in this class and in the wet. Curragh has defeated The Chairman on two occasions in recent times and meets that horse three kilograms better at the weights, despite finishing ahead of that galloper at his most recent start. He is a previous third up winner and should go very close.

What Bets To Place at Caulfield Races

There are a number of ways to bet on horse racing this weekend from a standard win or place bet to quadrellas and multibets. 

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way (see our guide for what an each-way bet is), the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race. 

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched.
