Caulfield Tips - July 14

Race 3 - 1:00PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Handicap (1700 METRES)
Pretty confident ANOTHER COLDIE is the one to beat here. He was jumping from 1200m second-up to the mile last start, and despite being caught three wide without cover, he loomed as the winner and was only outgunned by stablemate Silentz late. He improves deeper into his campaigns and the step up to 1700m at his fourth run is ideal. He should have no trouble getting one off the fence from barrier 3, and if Damian Lane can work him into the clear at the right time, he can finish best to score. 

Race 5 - 2:10PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Exotics Handicap (1200 METRES)
RILLITO was a clear standout last time and I can see no reason to jump off her. She ran the quickest of the three 1200m races on the day, clocked the second quickest sectional from the 400-200m and the seventh quickest from the 200-finish. That tells me she’s open to improvement and with that solid run under her belt, she should be stronger late in the piece. 

Race 8 - 4:10PM Ladbrokes Info Hub Handicap (1400 METRES)
Gee RESERVE STREET has been impressive in his past two wins but the one main concern is the fact all three of his wins have been on the Pakenham synthetic. He ran very slick time over 1400m two starts back and then defeated Maxey Campo who has subsequently brained them at the same track - so the form looks genuine. Craig Williams has chased the ride, and with 5.5kg less, he’ll takes some running down from up on the speed at his third run this preparation.

Race 1 - 11:45AM Keno Let's Play Handicap (1200 METRES)
I was very keen on Sweet Rockette going into her debut run, but she was beaten by TRILLI and I’m happy to stick with this filly now. Trilli has been slow to begin in both starts over 1000m but has mustered speed to get into a handy position, and I think stepping out to 1200m should be an advantage as they won’t go quite as quick early. She took a stack of improvement from her first-up run, and there’s no doubt she should improve again with that win under her belt. There are four unraced youngsters here that could surprise, but of the raced brigade, I think Trilli has them covered. She maps well from the good gate and will prove hard to beat.
Result ($4th)

Race 5 - 2:05PM Keno Heads or Tails Margins BM90 Handicap (1200 METRES)
With a bit of luck from the wide gate, RILLITO looks like the best of the day. Her sectionals when first-up behind Showpero at Moonee Valley where phenomenal and she’s a proven second-up improver. The 3rd placed Belwazi has franked the form with a commanding win at Moonee Valley on Wednesday, and the step up to 1200m should give this filly every chance to flash home over the top of them.
Result (1st - $3.30)

Race 7 - 3:25PM Keno Replay Handicap (1400 METRES)
One at nice odds here with the Darren Weir-trained CAPTAIN HARRY looking nicely placed. He was a bit unlucky not to have won last start as he got shuffled back to last before the turn, was held up in the straight and had to switch course before charging home to finish 2nd behind Elite Drake. He now meets that galloper 3kg better at the weights, and with peak fitness on his side, I’m hoping he can hold a more forward position from gate 4. This is an open contest, but with a genuine early tempo, Captain Harry should get a chance to work into the race and will be very strong late. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 5 - HERITAGE FINANCE HANDICAP (1440m) 2:20pm
The Tony McEvoy-trained SILVERA goes extremely well fresh with two wins from three attempts, and his only unplaced first-up run was when working home strongly behind stablemate Hey Doc in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m). He was scratched from Flemington last Saturday in a 1600m event and now lines up over 1440m.  His recent barrier trial suggests he’s come back in great order. He was never out of second gear when defeating Calderon and Guizot in a 990m trial at Cranbourne, and Calderon was only 4.5 lengths from the winner in the Listed Anniversary Vase (1400m) first-up where nothing made ground from the rear. Silvera was a clear standout in the trial and will be charging home fresh down the long Flemington straight. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 8 - LE PINE FUNERALS HANDICAP (2000m) 4:20pm
When Darren Weir gets excited about a horse, you know it must be good, and FURRION has nothing to suggest he isn’t a future star. The three-year-old son of Camelot scored on debut in a 1300m maiden before smashing a BM64 field by 4.5 lengths and then winning as he pleased in BM70 company last start at Warrnambool as he stepped up to 1700m. Being a northern hemisphere-bred youngster, he’s technically only two years old but is blessed with a stack of ability and is comfortably beating the older horses. He takes on a bunch of three-year-olds here and should be winning this before heading to the QLD Derby.
Result (2nd)

Confidence is high with HURSLEY on Saturday. The Chris Waller-trained galloper has a great record at the track and trip with three wins and four placings from eight starts. He stepped up to 2000m at his second run this campaign and just peaked on his run late while carrying 69.5kg. He now drops 1.5kg thanks to Ethan Brown’s 2kg claim, and he should strip fitter this time around. 
Result (3rd)

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.
