Seven Late 2015 Caulfield Guineas Nominations Received

Set to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 10 as one of four elite levels on Caulfield Guineas Day, this year’s $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) now boasts a total of 296 hopefuls – up 15 at this time last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Connections of seven more promising youngsters paid the late entry to get their horses into the mix for the set weights classic including the Peter Moody-trained Bassett.

A two time starter and one-time winner, the New Zealand-bred Savabeel gelding won on debut at Caulfield in mid-May before running a luckless fifth behind the Chris Waller-trained Press Statement in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) over the Doomben mile last time out on June 6.

JJ Atkins winner Press Statement is one of the top fancies in the pre-field Caulfield Guineas odds at bookmakers around the country paying around $9 for the Melbourne Group 1.

The futures Caulfield Guineas betting markets are led by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Vancouver who is the short-priced favourite after winning his four starts to date as a two-year-old including the Golden Slipper last time out.

Vancouver returns to racing in Sydney this Saturday running first-up with the big 60kg top weight in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens before the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) back at the track on September 12, a race the valuable stallion prospect is the current $3.20 through to win.

The other single figure fancy for the Caulfield Guineas this season is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Press Statement who took out the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes – Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes across two states in the autumn.

The other late Caulfield Guineas entries taken today were: the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Kiwi expat Ragnaar, Shane Nichols’ unraced Hard Spun gelding Chance Taken, Wendy Kelly’s recent Moe winning colt Del Piero, the Craig Ritchie-trained Denominator, Jason Warren’s son of Beneteau Puritan and Written Tycoon colt Thelburg for Brett Conlon who won a trial at Canterbury on Monday morning.

Also run on Caulfield Guineas Day is the fillies’ equivalent, the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) that drew just one late entry.

A total of 277 three-year-old fillies head towards this year’s Thousand Guineas after the late nomination of the unraced Craig Ritchie-trained daughter of Bushranger Humility.

She has had two trials this season but was disappointing in both including a ninth of 10 runners over 1030m at Rosehill on August 4 in a heat won by Flying Achilles.

No late entries were made for the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), the weight-for-age classic held at Moonee Valley on October 24, leaving the original 173 hopefuls led by current $9 favourite Arod.
