Golden Archer Chases Helmet in Caulfield Guineas Prelude 2011 Odds

After opening the clear favourite in the 2011 Caulfield Guineas Prelude betting for this Saturday, dual Group 1 winning colt Helmet looks to have some stiff competition for the top spot with punters crunching rival Golden Archer in the fixed-odds markets.

Golden Archer

Golden Archer has been heavily backed to defeat Helmet in the 2011 Caulfield Guineas Prelude on Saturday

An elite level winner over the distance, the Peter Snowden-trained Helmet was initially quoted at a short-price of $2.50 through Luxbet to back up from their last-start third to Manawanui in the Golden Rose and win the $175,000 Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) this weekend.

Helmet, however, has since drifted right out to $3 to secure their fifth career success and win the traditional Caulfield Guineas lead-up with Peter Moody’s uncapped runner Golden Archer all the rage with the public.

Progressive Rock Of Gibraltar colt Golden Archer opened in Caulfield Guineas Prelude betting at a generous price of $5 but has been well-supported with their odds now having firmed into $3.60.

Golden Archer has the ideal barrier four draw for Saturday’s clash and comes off an eye-catching win over fellow Guineas Prelude hope Cross Of Gold in the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 27.

Although they haven’t seen the 1400 metres before there is no questioning Golden Archer’s class or experience as they boast a commanding record of six wins and two minor placings, one of which was a second to glamour colt Sepoy in the Vain Stakes two starts back, from nine career runs.

A triple stakes winner and two-time Caulfield conqueror, Golden Archer has plenty of claims here with the distance the only query.

The two other single-priced Prelude contenders are both drifters in the betting with That’s The One out from $8.50 to $9 and Chase The Rainbow now at $6.50 after originally opening at $5.50.

Punters looking for more value in their Caulfield Guineas Prelude bets, however, will be taking note of the fact that five of Caulfield Guineas Prelude winners since 2000 started at $21 or over in the odds.

There are four horses at a blowout price that could add to this trend with Running Tall ($31) drawn in gate one, stakes winning Mossman colt Absalon ($21), classy Cranbourne-based colt Grand Britannia ($26) and $151 roughie of the field Isopach.
