The second Group 1 feature race on the 2010 Caulfield Guineas Day card is Race 6, the $350,000 Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m), due to light up the track at 3:20pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Toorak Handicap final field features 15 quality runners, with Gai Waterhouse’s in-form mare More Joyous the odds-on favourite to win currently paying $2.40 at Sportsbet.
More Joyous has been super impressive this season winning all three of her spring starts including the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) last start.
Despite her dominance in the Toorak Handicap betting markets, More Joyous is making her Victorian race debut today, is drawn wide in barrier 10 and is the top-weighted entry at 58kg.
Still, the classy daughter of More Than Ready has proven her versatility in Sydney and the ease in which she has defeated her rivals makes More Joyous our top pick to win today.
Caulfield Race 6 – Toorak Handicap
- Races.com.au Favourite: #1 More Joyous – Rated Special to Win at $2.40 Ladbrokes.com.au
- Best Place Bets: #2 Drumbeats and #11 Allez Wonder Ladbrokes.com.au
With More Joyous at short odds to win, the Races.com.au team have tipped two longer-priced entries to fill the placings today giving punters more value!
Peter Snowden’s Drumbeats is our first Place tip, the Redoute’s Choice five-year-old coming off a good win in the Bill Ritchie Handicap in Sydney.
Meanwhile, the Bart Cummings-trained Allez Wonder is a top light-weight chance to Place as they should improve from their first Caulfield start this season when finishing fifth to Drenalin here late last month.
Another classy mare that could prove an excellent value choice is Response, currently paying very generously at $11 through Sportsbet despite having won the Rupert Clarke Stakes over 1400m here last start.
