Golden Archer

Golden Archer is the Caulfield Guineas Prelude 2011 market mover

Running as Caulfield Race 5 at 3:00pm (local time), the $175,000 Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) has 12 contenders still in contention after the early withdrawal of #11 Sabrage.

Caulfield Guineas Prelude betting at Luxbet is dominated by two gallopers with dual Group 1 winner Helmet the easing $3.10 favourite.

Peter Moody’s last-start McNeil Stakes winner at the track, Golden Archer, is hot on their heels as the firming $3.90 second elect in the Guineas Prelude odds.

Punters are also warming to the ideally-drawn Chase The Rainbow who from barrier two presents some sort of threat and is paying $5.50 for an upset win.

Value picks in the classy field include the untapped That’s The One who has drifted out from $8.50 to $9.50 in the Prelude markets and promising Mossman colt Absalon who is starting to see some love from the punters having been backed in from $26 to $21.

As you can see the race is shaping up as a relatively open betting affair for punters, so below the Races.com.au crew have provided a rundown on the Caulfield Guineas Prelude betting odds, market movers and form selections so you can get the most out of your Caulfield wagers tomorrow.
