The marquee race at Melbourne’s feature Saturday meeting today is the Caulfield Guineas 2015 for the three-year-olds, just two of the capacity field under double figures for the win.
He has firmed in from $2.70, but can be had at juicer Best Tote or SP + 20% markets open on all 10 races on the card through Ladbrokes this afternoon, as one of just four in the mix proven over the mile.
He won the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane as a two-year-old and also comes off a Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) win in Sydney, which produced last year’s Caulfield Guineas winner Shooting To Win (2014).
The only other hope under $10 in the latest Caulfield Guineas betting markets is Ready For Victory who has eased out from $6.50 to $7.50, the Mick Price-trained son of More Than Ready after his first win since a victory on debut at Flemington back in early March.
He ran third in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) two back also at Flemington when narrowly beaten, and his ninth in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) last time out was better than it looks on paper after he was defeated under two lengths.
The big Caulfield Guineas market mover backed right in from $41 to $15 is Tarzino due to jump from barrier three, which last produced a winner three years back in All Too Hard (2012), who is a stablemate of Ready For Victory.
The Tavistock colt is up to black-type company for the first time here but ticks plenty of boxes as he comes off a win at the track and distance when overcoming the extreme outside barrier 16 of 16 draw on September 19.
Money has also come in for the likes of the Michael Moroney-trained Prelude runner-up Tulsa ($15 into $12), Ciaron Maher’s Prelude winner Bon Aurum ($14 into $12) who has won three of his six career starts to date, Bassett ($13 into $12), the John O’Shea-trained Stan Fox runner-up to the favourite Press Statement in Sydney last month Shards ($51 into $21) and Pat Hyland’s proven miler Lizard Island ($31 into $26).
On the drift are then the likes of the Group 1 winning Kiwi raider Dal Cielo ($9 out to $10) who is yet to run over 1600m, the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained lightly raced Sovereign Nation ($15 out to $19) coming off a solid Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) win at Moonee Valley over this distance only last weekend and High Chaparral colt Last Bullet ($18 out to $21).
