A look at a few races- Caulfield

With the big races in Melbourne I thought maybe a few followers would want a steer into the races down south.

I am far more comfortable in Brisbane but here are my views on a few races down there. (There is still a BRISBANE preview to check out on the home page)

Race 4:

Nice horses on the way up. JADES BOY looks as though the 1800m will suit and he does stick on nice. BRING SOMETHING had a wrap on him last prep and ran some nice races behind good horses, he could produce a big finish here.

Can’t knock ALPHA BEAT coming off a good win over JADE’S BOY and he actually meets that horse 0.5kg better off.

I am in the corner of DELIBERATE. Snowden camp seem to have a good opinion of him and the 1800m looks ideal. Is stepping up from a maiden win but he should measure up.



Race 7: Group 1 BLUE DIAMOND

Obviously we have two massive boom horses in RUBICK and EARTHQUAKE. They do look genuine stars and both must be thrown in everything. People love tri’s and first 4’s in these races so let’s look for a few to throw in.

STRATUM STAR $51 was as good if not better than CHIVALRY and NOSTRADAMUS in the prelude and they are $7 and $11. They all have to be considered along with NAYELI that may well be the sleeper and strong through the line.

Best roughie:  11- STRATUM STAR    $51

Trifecta numbers Boxed:  2,4,11,12,13



Race 8:   Group 1- OAKLEIGH PLATE

You can go as wide as you like but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t a race in two.

LANKAN RUPEE has been a different horse since gelding and he is going from strength to strength. Doesn’t have to lead and should be able to get some cover from gate 8. He should more than measure up.

KNOYDART is another jumping out of the ground since becoming a gelding. His win at Mornington is something you had to see to believe. Simply breathtaking and if he reproduces that than we may see something special. Look for him to sprout wings late!

On Top:  3- LANKAN RUPEE    +   9- KNOYDART
