Rich Enuff Firms in 2014 Caulfield Guineas Odds

Sunday’s Caulfield Guineas Prelude winner Rich Enuff has firmed into clear favouritism to win the Caulfield Guineas 2014 Saturday week following another exciting performance from the Ken Keys-trained galloper.

Not having lost since a close third on debut at Moonee Valley back in March, the Written Tycoon colt made it three on the trot this time in in stakes’ company with a smart two and a half length win over the Tony Gollan-trained Looks Like The Cat in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) over the weekend.

That followed from a victory over the same horse, but only by a long neck the first time, in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington a fortnight earlier.

Rich Enuff now dominates the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au for the $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m), set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on October 11.

Post-Prelude win he has firmed into $3.40 as one of four single figure hopes in the all-in Caulfield Guineas betting markets.

Hot on his tail at $4.60 is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Group 1 winner Almalad.

Al Maher gelding Almalad won the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane during the winter and won his first race since at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

There on Moir Stakes Night he took control of the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m), relishing a step back up to the mile to improve on his fourth to Hallowed Crown the run before in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney.

In recent years the Caulfield Guineas Prelude has been a crack guide to the Group 1 a fortnight later with three Caulfield Guineas winners having come via the Prelude in the past 11 years including three to complete the double.

The Cranbourne-based Rich Enuff then is out to become the latest Prelude – Guineas double winner since the Peter Snowden-trained Helmet (2011) three years ago.

The history on Almalad’s lead-up win is also good however with two Caulfield Guineas winners, Whobegotyou (2008) and Helenus (2002), in the past 10 years having come off a Stutt Stakes win.

In 2008 Whobegotyou was ridden to victory by Michael Rodd, the same hoop aboard Rich Enuff in the Prelude.

Rodd is excited about his mount’s chances then in the Caulfield Guineas saying it would be a great day of racing.

“The next two weeks are going to be a bit on edge just to make sure we get him there, but it’s going to be a great day,” he told Racing Victoria on the weekend.

The two other single figure hopes in the updated Caulfield Guineas odds are then Danehill – Prelude runner-up Looks Like The Cat ($5) and Shooting To Win ($8).

Another last-start winner, Peter & Paul Snowden’s Northern Meteor colt Shooting To Win scored at Rosehill on Saturday with an all-too-easy three length victory over Paul Messara’s Golden Rose runner-up Scissor Kick in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m).

Former favourite Chivalry, sixth in the Stutt Stakes on Friday night, then has eased out from an earlier price of under $5 to $12 followed by three single figure hopes including the 2014 Victoria Derby top fancy Sweynesse.

The John O’Shea-trained Sweynesse is in flying form and could even target the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 25 after retaining his undefeated status on Saturday with a fourth win, this time in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m).
