Today the action of the 2010 Caulfield Cup Day kicks off with the first of 10 scheduled races at 11:30am (ADEDST), the $70,000 D’urban Plate (1400m).
Caulfield Race 1, the 2010 D’urban Plate, has 10 three-year-old fillies still in contention following the scratching of #5 Blink, #6 Canconi, #10 Marvellous Miss and #13 Margiela.
With the betting markets thrown wide open, three runners are at single figure odds to win with #7 Alotta Spur the current $4.20 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Peter Moody-trained filly will be ridden by Luke Nolen today and is seeking her second career win from just five starts.
But with the favourite coming off mixed form including her last start fourth to Blink, a scratching from today’s D’Urban Plate, the Races.com.au team have selected another filly we think will cause an upset.
No. 8 Belle Chantecler is paying very generously at $10 to win today and the consistent young filly is our top pick.
Caulfield – Race 1 – D’Urban Plate
- Odds-on Favourite: #7 Alotta Spur – $4.20 Ladbrokes.com.au
- Races.com.au Favourite: #8 Belle Chantecler – Rated Special to Win at $10 Ladbrokes.com.au
- Best Each Way Chance: #1 Enzed Girl Ladbrokes.com.au
Belle Chantecler is drawn wide in barrier 10 today, due to move in with the scratchings, which should suit the Heavy track conditions.
The Lee Freedman-trained Redoute’s Choice filly is yet to finish out of the money in her three career starts and with Craig Newitt in the mount she looks hard to beat.
Our favourite Each Way chance is Enzed Girl in barrier one and currently paying $5, the Kiwi-bred runner well suited to the track conditions.
