Caulfield Guineas Betting

Caulfield Guineas betting is hugely popular each October when the Group 1 mile race for three-year-olds runs during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Pre-field Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas odds are released around nomination stage listing generous all-in prices on the possible runners in the $2 million classic. Many punters prefer to wait for the Caulfield Guineas field and barrier draw before placing their bets to better guarantee their selections will line-up in the feature race of Caulfield Guineas Day.

All of the usual racing markets are open on the Caulfield Guineas each spring like Win, Place and Each-Way odds (described below) as well as exotic Caulfield Guineas betting combinations that are riskier but that pay more if successful.

Important tips to note when it comes to Caulfield Guineas betting include the excellent strike rate of the favourites in the past decade, the strong record trainer Peter Snowden has in the Caulfield Guineas results in recent years, and that history shows gradates out of the Caulfield Guineas Prelude or Stan Fox Stakes have the best record when it comes to winning the Caulfield Guineas.

2019 Caulfield Guineas Betting

The season’s best Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas betting odds will be made available below each spring complete with market links to Ladbrokes.com.au.

Standard Caulfield Guineas Bets

Most Caulfield Guineas betting is on win, place or each-way bets. These are the easiest bet types to understand, which is why they are so popular with beginners.

Win – This is a bet on a horse to win the Caulfield Guineas.

Place – This is a bet on a horse to come first, second or third in the Caulfield Guineas.

Each-Way – This is actually two bets of equal size on the same horse: one for the horse to win the Caulfield Guineas, and one on the horse to come first, second or third.

While you can be forgiven for thinking your Caulfield Guineas betting is safer with win bets than exotic bets, you would be wrong. Often exotic bets such as box trifectas and quinellas can be better value.

Caulfield Guineas Quinella

A Caulfield Guineas quinella is a bet on which two horses will finish in first and second place, in any order. In the 2019 Caulfield Guineas Quinella, it wouldn’t matter which order you had Super Seth and Alligator Blood in for the Quinella as both finished in the money.

If there are two runners at comparably low odds in the Caulfield Guineas betting odds, then it is worthwhile considering a quinella, especially if the two runners have wins over one another in previous races at a similar distance.

Caulfield Guineas Exacta

A Caulfield Guineas exacta is a bet on the two horses that will finish in first and second, in exact order. If you had an exacta on the 2019 race with Alligator Blood in first and Super Seth in second, then you would have lost. If you had the exacta in the reverse order, then you would have won.

If you aren’t confident in picking the exacta correctly, then it is better to consider a quinella or a box exacta bet that will cover multiple combinations.

Caulfield Guineas Trifecta

First, a reminder of what a trifecta is for those who are unfamiliar with the bet.

A trifecta is a bet on which horses will place first, second and third – in exact order. For example, a winning Caulfield Guineas trifecta in the 2019 race would have:

1st – Super Seth
2nd – Alligator Blood
3rd – Groundswell

The horses are chosen in exact order of their finishing. If Alligator Blood had come third and Groundswell had come second, this bet would not have won.

Picking a Caulfield Guineas trifecta can be tricky, but there are a few indicator races worth watching for Caulfield Guineas tips. The most obvious is the Caulfield Guineas Prelude, which is only slightly shorter. The HDF McNeil Stakes also marks out potential Caulfield Guineas performers, so keep an eye on the first 5 finishers for Caulfield Guineas trifecta hints.

Most experienced bettors reduce the difficulty of exactly picking the trifecta by placing a box trifecta instead. Learning how to place a box trifecta will improve your Caulfield Guineas betting dramatically.

With a box trifecta, you can choose as many of the runners as you like to come in the first three places. Your bet will be on every trifecta combination of the runners you chose. The only downside to this bet is cost – you are essentially placing individual bets on every trifecta combination you think will happen.

Caulfield Guineas First Four

Like the trifecta and exacta, a Caulfield Guineas First Four bet requires you pick the horses in exact order. You must correctly choose the runners to come in first, second, third and fourth place.

Obviously this isn’t the easiest bet to make, but it can be incredibly lucrative. As with the trifecta, it is easier to place a box Caulfield Guineas First Four bet where you may choose a larger number of horses to finish in the first four places.

Betting with Ladbrokes.com.au will allow you to do this at less expense, giving you more flexibility in planning your Caulfield Guineas betting selections. An example strategy is to place a First Four box bet that includes all the top 5 finishers of the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and the HDF McNeil Stakes that are running in the Caulfield Guineas.
