One of three Group 1 highlights on the Caulfield race card for Saturday, this year’s $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) is shaping up as a beauty.

Early favourite is the Peter Snowden-trained Long John.

While the bookies are taking no chances on the Steet Cry gelding, Snowden himself needs convincing they are a Group 1 winning three-year-old.

Long John enjoyed a win at Flemington two back in the Listed Henry Bucks Best Dressed Stakes (1400m) before their third behind Éclair Big Bang in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) last start.

Caulfield Guineas Prelude winner Éclair Big Bang will get their chance to defeat the race favourite again on Saturday having also been accepted for the Group 1 clash.

Phillip Stokes’ Adelaide raider debuted in Melbourne at career start number three on September 7 with a brave third in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) before relishing a step up in distance for the Prelude.

The son of Savabeel may be only lightly raced but they are showing all the signs of a promising stayer-in-the-making and should enjoy more distance again going up to the mile for the Guineas.

Runner-up in the Prelude El Roca also backs up on Saturday, Trent Busuttin’s New Zealand visitor having debuted in Australia with their nice Prelude second on September 29.

Prior to that they were undefeated having won both their career openers back home, the bookies rating them to continue improving down under starting on Saturday.

The other top fancy in the latest Caulfield Guineas betting markets is then the Tony Vasil-trained local Haradasun colt Prince Harada.

One time favourite for the Guineas, Prince Harada was undefeated coming into their three-year-old season which started with a second to Fast ‘N’ Rocking in the McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in August.

Their last run meanwhile was back on September 14, giving them a full month between runs going in the Guineas, when they finished a credible fifth behind the Chris Waller-trained Zoustar in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m).

Other notable hopes then include Peter Moody’s Golden Rose runner-up Dissident last seen finishing sixth to Streama in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on September 21 and smart Snitzel colt Shamus Award coming off a second in the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley last month.
