Caulfield Guineas 2011 Odds & Post-Barrier Betting Update

Yesterday the 2011 Caulfield Guineas final field was released ahead of this Saturday’s three-year-old classic and following the acceptances and barrier draw, the updated odds and betting markets have also now been released.


Helmet remains the 2011 Caulfield Guineas betting favourite despite drawing wide

The $1 million Group 1 The Age Caulfield Guineas (1600m) attracted a field of eight quality gallopers lead by Peter Snowden’s dual elite level winning Exceed And Excel colt Helmet.

A winner of five of their eight career starts to date, including the AJC Sires Produce – Champagne Stakes double as a juvenile, Helmet shot to the top of the Caulfield Guineas futures odds after their emphatic three and a half length victory in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield on September 24.

Adding intrigue to how the Caulfield Guineas 2011 will be run and opening up the post-field betting at Luxbet is the fact Helmet drew barrier eight of eight for Saturday’s clash.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy, however, is looking on the bright side and said that with Helmet having shown poor barrier manners in the past, the less time he is in the gates before jump time on Saturday the better.

“Drawing barrier eight, he will be going in the barriers late and won’t be in there too long and we’d just love to see him jump away quickly and cleanly, that’s the main think,” McEvoy said.

“It’s going to be a good, tactical race.

“My horse will be up there somewhere in the first few, but we won’t set anything in stone and just see how it unfolds in the first furlong.”

Despite the far outside draw, Helmet remains the firm Caulfield Guineas betting favourite at Luxbet) – Drawn ideally in barrier two, will advantage from the small field and nice gate after jumping from 17 last-start in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, sees the mile for the first time but is due for some luck

  • Manawanui ($5 Luxbet) – Likely to get crunched by the punters leading up to Saturday after Ron Leemon’s Golden Rose winner drew gate three, flawless lead-up form as they seek their sixth consecutive win, the 1600m shouldn’t be too far of a stretch after they easily won the Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill last-start, but the Melbourne way of going is the only unknown
  • Chase The Rainbow ($7 Luxbet) – Untapped colt was very impressive last Friday night winning the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) from barrier seven of eight, which is exactly how they have drawn again for the Guineas, has form in Melbourne and over the mile making them the best Place bet of the field

Following in the 2011 Caulfield Guineas field and odds are the Anthony Freedman-trained stakes winner Specter ($18), the Peter Moody-trained uncapped colt Huegill ($19), Caulfield Guineas Prelude runner-up Secret Hills ($26) and $201 long-shot General Offer who could be scratched out in favour of running at Bendigo on Thursday.
