Caulfield Cup - Beaten Jockeys

17:37 21 Oct


We have to wait until the end of the 10-race program for what looks to be the best bet of the day. NIETA is a deadset weighted certainty in my humble opinion here. She was wide all the way last start in the Group Two Premier Stakes and battled on well until weakening the last 75m, gets back from 1200m to 1100m here which is a positive. She was still only beaten 3.7 lengths and was behind four Everest runners and In Her Time which has since come out and won again. Prior to that run she was on the heels of The Everest winner Redzel on two consecutive occasions. Her main danger according to the market is Fuhryk. She has had legitimate excuses her last two runs (An 8th and 7th) but still has to give Nieta 2kg. Draws well and gets H. Bowman on board. All things being equal, she wins.

WHAT AN UPSET!! BOOM TIME wins the 2017 Caulfield Cup. He beats SINGLE GAZE who was amazing in second. What a Melbourne Cup Trial from Marmelo.

Joao 'Magic Man' Moreria hasn't shown up in Australia for a while now.. His ride on Danish Twist was a horror watch for Punters.

15:49 21 Oct


SNITTY KITTY Improves again and takes out the Group Two Caulfield Sprint very Impressively. 

15:38 21 Oct


We're with PROPERTY in the Caulfield Sprint. It looks to be a tough race so I wouldn't be advertising a big investment in this race. Super Too should go fast with Snitty Kitty and I'm seeing Property getting a similar run to Ulmann in the previous race. Just get in him some room Craig and we'll see what happens.
15:04 21 Oct


I’m with the Darren Weir camp here, just hoping we can pick the right runner. I think ULMANN is over the odds in the Group Three Moonga Stakes. I thought he was very good first up in the Group Two Gilgai Stakes. It was an on-paced dominated race and he went to the line as good as Silent Sedition and Spieth. The extra 200m is a big plus and his only victory at Caulfield was second-up over 1400m, defeating Duke Of Brunswick. He has had three starts over the 1400m at Caulfield for one win and a second. He maps perfectly from Gate four, sitting midfield with cover. Stablemate Burning Front should ensure a good tempo from the front. I think Danish Twist is a big chance, however with the price differential, I’m with Ulmann.

What Track Bias? Is it a leaders track because all the fastest horses in the first four races were racing on speed? KIWIA showing that the track is playing fine. #Rantover
14:41 21 Oct


KIWIA scores the COONGY CUP in a Messy race in what was a small field. Samovare runs second but the hard luck tale of the race was MAURUS who had no luck, ditto Spectroscope.

200/1 MULTI

THE 200/1 CAULFIELD MULTI  is Halfway there!! Only TWO more winners for an unbelievable collect. 
13:55 21 Oct


A small field of just eight runners line-up in the Ladbrokes Classic but It’s an extremely competitive race. Main Stage and Tavistock Abbey crossed the line together in the Victoria Derby Trial at Flemington three weeks ago, Main Stage then went onto the UCI Stakes and produced a devastating turn of foot to nap Cliff’s Edge in the shadows. The Sydney Visitor Tangled was very nearly a Group One winner after just missing against Ace High in the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick. I have my reservations with Tangled, Fourth up staying at 2000m first time the Melbourne way of going around a tight turning Caulfield track. I’ve settled with CLIFF’S EDGE. He showed great tactical speed at Flemington to get moving around the bend and kicked well clear of his rivals in the straight. It took all of the 450 meter straight for Main Stage to wear him down. Cliff’s Edge looks to be the only speed in the race and with the small field, Johnny Allen should be able to slide over from the wide gate and dictate from the front. They’re going to have a very hard time catching him.

Foxplay Tactics Change

13:38 21 Oct


WHAT A WIN! Pinot works hard but is far too good for her rivals. Onwards and upwards to the Oaks now. A great start to the day for Blog readers. $$$. 

13:18 21 Oct


I was on course at Flemington for Oaks & Derby Trial Day three weeks ago and the turn of foot that Pinot showed was really unbelievable. The wide gate is an obvious negative and she may have to work early. Regardless I think she's the best Filly in the race.

Caulfield Race 1

Only five Minutes away from the first race on Caulfield Cup Day. We kick off the day with OUR CROWN MISTRESS. 

OUR CROWN MISTRESS really picks herself in the opening race on Caulfield Cup Day. This Three-Year-Old Star Witness Filly is a typical Jump and run Gai Waterhouse horse and is all class. She missed by a nose on debut before scoring in what was an above average Maiden at Sale second-up. She then carried 59KG at Geelong but went to a new level her first time on a Good surface, leading and bolting in by four and a half lengths. She will be right on speed again and looks to be a very handy Filly. She ran her last 600m 0.01 of a second quicker than Counterplay last start. Keep in mind Our Crown Mistress was running over 1340m while Counterplay was running over 1200m. She looked to relish the step from 1200m up to 1340m and the extra 60m should be no issue. Happy to be with her in the opener.
