Caulfield Guineas 2011 Nominations Up Two

A pair more three-year-olds have been paid up for at late entry stage for the 2011 Caulfield Guineas, bringing the total number of horses heading towards the early Melbourne Spring Carnival feature to 279.

Last week Racing Victoria took the original nominations for four of the carnival’s major showdowns, including those for the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

Today, however, the connections of two more horses coughed up the $1,100 late entry fee to give them a shot at the classic which will run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 8.

The first was from the Cranbourne stables of trainer Nikki Burke, Unpretentious.

An unraced Stratum gelding, Unpretentious showed connections they had the potential to develop into a genuine Group 1 contender after an impressive barrier trial win at Cranbourne on Tuesday.

The second late Caulfield Guineas entry is a Queensland raider prepared by Eagle Farm-based horseman Brian Smith, State Of Wealth.

Also yet to make their race debut, State Of Wealth is a well-bred colt by American sire Ad Valorem from Girona.

In the latest Caulfield Guineas betting markets Unpretentious is rated a $101 roughie while State Of Wealth is yet to be added to the odds.

Equal $8 favourites to become the 2011 Caulfield Guineas winner are Anthony Cumming’s Group 2 winner Smart Missile and the Peter Snowden-trained Helmet who won the Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes – Champagne Stakes double in the autumn.

Another horse recently earning a Caulfield Guineas campaign this year is the Danny O’Brien-trained Decircles.

Although not a late entry, O’Brien nominating the Encosta De Lago colt for the Guineas last week, Decircles only confirmed their Caulfield Guineas target last Sunday.

Lining up in a 3YO Maiden at Seymore, Decircles easily accounted for Peter Moody’s raging favourite Godspeed, winning by four and a half lengths.

After the win O’Brien confirmed they would pay-up at first declaration stage for the Caulfield Guineas on September 6 with Decircles.

“He’s a nice colt who we always knew would be better at three,” O’Brien said.

“He’s from one of the best families in the stud book.”
