It is a sunny day in Melbourne today and with zero chance of rain the current Good (3) track rating on the Caulfield course proper is set to stay, boosting the chances of the noted firm track performers getting around.

The boys are next up in the 2016 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (Race 8) where the Sydney Stan Fox Stakes form is tipped as the one to follow win the winner Impending and runner-up Divine Prophet doing battle again.

The last of the Group 1s is the 2016 Toorak Handicap (Race 9) where the likes of He’s Our Rokkii and Royal Rapture do battle on the back of some star lead-up form.

Caulfield Scratchings – 08/10/2016

Total Scratchings: 12

Race 1 (12:20pm) – $120,000 Listed Inglis Debutant Stakes (1000m)

  • #1 Double Jeopardy (7)
  • #6 Jukebox (6)

The only two-year-old with previous race experience is out and nine are left to run in this SUPER VOBIS bonus race where trial form and barriers suggest Wait For No One ($3.70) can step up and Miss Wahoo ($4.40) one wider in barrier two are the ones to beat.

Race 2 (12:55pm) – $400,000 Group 2 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes (2400m)

  • #7 Master Zephyr (5)

A Caulfield Cup ballot exemption for next weekend’s major is up for grabs here and just six remain in contention and all are $10 or under for the win making for a tough betting race. Assign ($2.70) is favourite but market mover Howard Be Thy Name ($3.50) looks the value along with the Melbourne Cup winner Prince Of Penzance ($9.50).

Race 3 (1:30pm) – $150,000 Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m)

  • #2 Merriest (16)
  • #7 Soviet Secret (6)
  • #12 Cocoexcel (11)

The three-year-old sprinting fillies face off here with 13 facing off post-scratchings, markets in favour of the returning In The Vanguard ($3.80) who hasn’t run since February and debuts in Melbourne from barrier one. Recent trials are strong but plenty have the fitness edge including last start Group 3 MVRC Champagne Stakes winner Selenia ($12) at double figures.

Race 4 (2:05pm) – $120,000 Listed Catalina Sounds Weekend Hussler Stakes (1400m)

  • #6 Mabeel (5)

Eleven middle-distance sprinters still to run in this handicap showdown where Chetwood ($1.90) is now odds-on having been heavily supported to step up in grade again and post a fourth win from as many starts this time in. Badawiya ($5.50) on the rails is a Group 2 winning mare with plenty of claims third runs in on 54kg.

Race 5 (2:40pm) – $150,000 Group 3 Cape Grim Beef Steaks (1200m)

  • #6 Forgeress (2)

Thirteen older mares left to do battle at set weights plus penalties and the money is rolling in for Sheidel ($3.40) who should be peaking three runs in after a narrow loss to a good type last start. Plenty of others with claims however including the Mick Price-trained How Now winner at the track / distance and class last time out Secret Agenda ($4.50).

Check out our full 2016 Cape Grim Beef Steaks Preview & Tips.

Race 6 (3:15pm) – $600,000 Group 1 Ladbrokes Stakes (2000m)

  • No current scratchings.

It’s all about Winx ($1.20) to win her 12th on the trot on way to a Cox Plate title defence. Some money on Darren Weir’s consistent Underwood Stakes winner Black Heart Bart ($4.60) up over the metres for the first time. He won’t beat here.

Race 7 (3:50pm) – $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m)

  • #14 Peeking Duck (10)

Just one filly out of the Thousand Guineas field leaving 14 hopefuls with last Saturday’s Flight Stakes winner Global Glamour ($5 into $3.80) and the Chris Waller-trained fellow Sydney raider Foxplay ($2.60 out to $3.80) now equal favourites. Plenty of other dangers including the Kiwi La Luna Rossa ($11).

See our full 2016 Thousand Guineas Tips & Preview.

Race 8 (4:30pm) – $1,000,000 Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m)

  • No current scratchings

All 14 original acceptors still racing in the day’s marquee race including the Stan Fox winner Impending ($6 into $3.70) for the Godolphin stable and the New Zealand-trained Prelude winner Sacred Elixir ($6) out to frank the local Melbourne form.

Race 9 (5:10pm) – $500,000 Group 1 IG Markets Toorak Handicap (1600m)

  • #2 Tosen Stardom (12)

Twelve left to do battle in this mile handicap including the firming favourite He’s Our Rokkii ($2.90) drawn the rails and coming off easier back-to-back wins at the track. Lots of value across the line-up including Thames Court ($9.50) and the Sir Rupert Clarke winner Bon Aurum ($7).

Check out the full 2016 Toorak Handicap Preview & Tips.

Race 10 (5:45pm) – $400,000 Group 2 Mitsubishi Electric Schillaci Stakes (1100m)

  • #3 Japonisme (12)
  • #10 O’Malley (6)

Ten short-distance specialists left in the card closer where the genuine market mover and top fancy is three-year-old Star Turn ($2.40) with Craig Williams aboard. Faces some tough older competition however including the rails-drawn Hucklebuck ($9) and first-up flyer Malaguerra ($9).
