The final Group 1 race scheduled to take place at Caulfield Racecourse today is Race 8, the $125,000 Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m), due to jump at 4:40pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Thoroughbred Club Stakes final field features 14 classy three-year-old fillies, lead by star Queensland galloper Military Rose.
Magic Millions Classic winner Military Rose is currently leading the Thoroughbred Club Stakes odds at $3.60 through Sportsbet, the Gillian Heinrich-trained General Nediym filly coming off an eye-catching third to Lone Rock in the Champagne Stakes at Moonee Valley.
Due to be ridden by champion hoop Michael Rodd today, Military Rose will jump mid-field from barrier seven seeking her sixth career victory.
Despite Military Rose’s dominance in the betting markets, the Races.com.au team are tipping an upset in the race with Solar Charged our favourite to win currently paying $6.50 through Sportsbet.

John O’Shea’s Charge Forward filly Solar Charged enjoyed a strong start to the season finishing second in both the San Domenico Stakes and the Silver Shadow Stakes, but has been abandoned by the punters after a disappointing ninth in the Champagne Stakes last start.
Drawn out wider in barrier 12, Solar Charged is expected to return to form today with Nash Rawiller back in the saddle.
Military Rose is still one of our top picks to Place today, along with the Peter Moody-trained Flokkati.
Fastnet Rock filly Flokkati is coming off a victory over 1000m at Caulfield, is set to carry just 54kg today and is drawn ideally in barrier two making her a top chance to cause an upset at great odds through Sportsbet.
