Doveton Stakes 2012 Form Guide & Betting Tips

The sole black-type feature running in Australia this weekend is the 2012 Doveton Stakes as racing kicks off at Caulfield for another year, and to help our readers pick a stakes winner on Saturday below the Races.com.au team have our insider form guide analysis and tips on the summer sprint showdown.

Set to run as Caulfield Race 5 at 3:30pm (VIC time) on Saturday, the $100,000 Listed Robert Taranto Doveton Stakes (1200m) features a small eight-horse field, meaning punters have eight horses to do the form on before placing their bets at Luxbet.

With a defending champ (First Command), a last-start city winner (Cat’s Pyjamas) and a Group 3 winner (Stirling Grove) among the main chances in the Doveton Stakes 2012 field and odds, it is certainly shaping up as a top event.

To save you time scrolling through the Caulfield race form, we have done the hard work for our readers.
