2014 Caulfield Guineas Prelude Betting Update

16 of the country’s most exciting colts and geldings (plus two emergencies) have been confirmed for Sunday’s Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), offering punters a variety of great betting options and the chance to back a winner.

The best of the field will back-up on October 11 at the same track on Caulfield Guineas Day running in the $1 million Caulfield Guineas (1600m) for which Chivalry is the ante-post favourite.

Looks Like The Cat opened the 2014 Caulfield Guineas Prelude betting market as $3.50 favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of fellow single figure hopes Rich Enuff ($5), Zebulon ($7.50), and Awesome Rock ($9).

The Tony Gollan-trained Looks Like The Cat has placed in all five of his career starts, including finishing runner-up to Rich Enuff by just a head in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) last time out. The betting favourite will start from the central barrier nine under regular jockey Damien Browne in just his second Melbourne race.

There’s a tough betting battle for the Group 3 with a number of other single figure hopes on the field:

  • #2 Rich Enuff ($5) – the Ken Keys-trained Rich Enuff must overcome a tough start from the outside barrier with the help of jockey Michael Rodd. After charging home to victory in the Danehill as well as winning the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) by over two lengths, Rich Enuff is a great betting option for this price.
  • #11 Zebulon ($7.50) – New Zealand import Zebulon will start the Prelude from the ideal barrier three under jockey Stephen Baster. Running at his lowest weight 55kg is sure to help the Living Legends third.
  • #10 Awesome Rock ($9) – Leon & Troy Corstens’ Awesome Rock will also get off to great start after drawing barrier two under jockey Damien Oliver. But recent stumbles, including a second-last finish in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) make him an uncertain bet.

Outside of the four single figure bets are a couple of runners at lucrative odds with a high chance at causing an upset in the 2014 Caulfield Guineas Prelude.

Our Vespa is paying $16 despite drawing barrier 1 for a run on the rails under Mark Du Plessis. The New Zealand import has also enjoyed a victory hat-trick from his last three outings, which included the $1 million Listed Karaka Million (1200m) and Challenge Stakes (1200m) as well as the Group 1 Diamond Stakes (1200m).

Godolphin’s current leading three-year-old Ghibellines is paying odds of $19 after drawing barrier 15. Jockey James McDonald will need to work hard to overcome the tough start but don’t rule them out.
