There are 14 stayers in the field for Saturday’s Caulfield Guineas Day supporting race, running as Race 5 at 3:20pm (AEDST).

Six of the runners are currently available at single figure odds, which means the 2014 Herbert Power Stakes betting market is wide open. German star Protectionist is the favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au offering a price of $4.40.

The Andreas Wohler-trained horse will enjoy an ideal start from barrier two with Craig Williams to ride. With placings from all eight of his career starts, including four wins, money has been coming in for the five-year-old.

The other five runners offering single figure odds are: Signoff ($5.50), Bonfire, Big Memory ($7), Sangster ($8), and Lord Van Percy ($9.50).

With so many good betting prospects in the mix, below are our top tips for the 2014 Herbert Power Stakes so you get a better idea of who to back this Saturday.


#1 Protectionist (4.40)

Favourite for a reason, Protectionist is in great form for the Herbert Power after placing in all eight of his career starts, including four wins. The five-year-old is a winner from his last two starts, including over the same distance as Caulfield. A win at 3000m puts him in contention for a Melbourne Cup run depending on his Herbert Power result.


#2 Sangster (8)

Will have to overcome a wide barrier draw from gate 10 but is in good form following a Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) second his last time out. Has proven successful as a stayer and should come home in the money.


#12 Albonetti (12)

Sue Jaensch’s five-year-old mare is in good form ahead of Saturday and could cause an upset as a double digit betting prospect. Was unknown to the punters her last time out in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) but just missed out on a placing by one length despite paying odds of $61. Money has been coming in for her this time as she’s shortened from $14 to $12. Needs a win here to qualify for the Caulfield Cup.
