It is a fine day in the greater Melbourne metropolitan area today, and while the Caulfield track has experienced some rain over the last week, has been rated a Good 3 – favouring runners that enjoy performing on top of the track.

The action is set to get underway at 12:50pm AEST with the running of the Yellowglen Plate (1400m) for three-year-old fillies, and will draw to a conclusion with the Listed Alinghi Stakes (1100m) at 6:15pm, which has drawn a total of 12 runners.
