Previous Caulfield Tips - July 28

The Darren Weir-trained SOCIAL SPIN led with his head on his chest last start when stepping up to 1400m for the first time, and he defeated them with ease. He and D’Grammy drop 2kg on that run and meet Immelmann better at the weights, and it’s hard to see either of that pair turning the tables on Social Spin. Ruban Bleu ran well last start and looks the main danger, but Weir’s horse has a fitness advantage and will prove hard to catch at Caulfield over this trip where he should be suited on the speed.  

MANTASTIC can atone here as he drops back to BM78 grade after finishing runner-up to Guizot in a BM90 over 1700m last start. He ran 1.9 lengths above the BM from the 800m mark to the 200m mark last start but then ran 0.3 of a length under the BM for the final 200m. He should be near peak fitness at his fourth run this time in, and the drop back to 1600m should see him strong through the line. He does go up 6kg as he drops in class, but the 1.5kg claim from Ethan Brown offsets that to some extent. 

Another one for Weir with MOUNT KILCOY stepping up to 2400m for the first time and looking hard to beat. He was a good thing beaten over a mile two starts back and then handled the rise to 2000m with ease as he cruised to a two-length win over Masculino. He has to carry 4.5kg more on Saturday but he should be at peak fitness and is ready to run this out strongly. 

Race 7 - 3:40PM The Big Screen Company Bletchingly Stakes (1200 METRES)

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. 
Result (3rd)

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. 
Result (2nd)

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. 
Result (unplaced)

June 30

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)

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.
