Chris Waller’s fillies dominate the nominations...
Gai Waterhouse’s super colt Pierro is the only one the punters want in the 2012 Caulfield Guineas odds for this Saturday’s showdown, the brilliant and unbeaten young gun the firming odds-on favourite to secure consecutive career win number nine.
Lonhro three-year-old Pierro has been in the headlines since their winning debut as a juvenile at Randwick 12 months ago, the now $3.15 million earner yet to taste defeat.
A triple Group 1 champ having secured the Golden Slipper, Sires Produce Stakes and Champagne Stakes triple during the autumn, Pierro is heading towards the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 27 where they will look to join an elite list of special horses to win Australasia’s weight-for-age championship during their three-year-old season.
With two wins this time in, their last a blistering five length romp in the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) on September 28, Pierro is in flying form ahead of the $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m).
Despite going into the race without a look at the track the star set Flemington on fire in trackwork earlier this week and has been slammed in the Caulfield Guineas odds at bookmaker.com.au now into $1.22.
Odds on their eight rivals meanwhile continue to ease including those on Golden Rose winner Epaulette ($8 out to $9) who is out to hand trainer Peter Snowden with back-to-back wins in the classic following the success of the now retired Helmet last year.
Pierro may jump the shortest priced Caulfield Guineas betting favourite in history but he is still better than bank interest and worth a punt on.
This horse is already a star and is a champion-in-the-making and is deserving of their miserable price!
