2017 Caulfield Sprint Field & Odds: Top 3 Hard To Split

It is a wide open affair in Caulfield Sprint 2017 betting this Caulfield Cup Day with a trio of short-distance spring horses battling for favouritism in the Saturday showdown.

Set to run as Caulfield Race 7 at 3:45pm (AEDT) on the final day of the Caulfield Cup Carnival, this year’s Group 2 $200,000 Harrolds Caulfield Sprint (1000m) field has attracted 10 runners.

The latest Caulfield Sprint odds at Ladbrokes.com.au list half of those under $10 for the win including the dominant trio of Snitty Kitty ($4), Property ($4.40) and Super Too ($4.50).

Drawn in barrier eight with Beau Mertens riding the four-year-old daughter of Snitzel, Henry Dwyer’s in-form mare Snitty Kitty is narrow early favourite after her first-up win at the track over 1100m on October 1.

A specialist over the 1000m having won three of her four starts at the distance, Snitty Kitty carted a massive 60kg to victory in a Mares’ Benchmark 90 at Caulfield and will be flying coming right down to just 53kg on Saturday in her Group race debut.

She has earned a shot at the tougher assignment having enjoyed a 50% winning strike rate over her 10 career starts so far including an imposing record at Caulfield (4-2-1-1) and the Listed 1050m Lightning win at Doomben in the winter.

Early market mover in Caulfield Sprint betting this spring is Property who resumes in the race with Craig Williams to ride from a mid-field barrier five draw.

Robert Smerdon’s Starcraft gelding makes his three-year-old debut on Saturday racing for the first time since taking out the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) by over three lengths at Randwick on April 1 during the autumn.

Prior to that the then juvenile enjoyed back-to-back Caulfield victories in the Blue Diamond Preview and Prelude, before a brave fifth when under three lengths beaten by Catchy in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

The other sprinter the punters are coming for is the flying Marc Conners-trained Super Too drawn a treat in barrier three with Winona Costin coming aboard for Blake Shinn.

Shinn rode the well-bred Hinchinbrook mare for back-to-back wins this time in over 1000m at Randwick and then the two length effort at The Valley over 955m on Moir Stakes Night in the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Heat.

Super Too is another 53kg lightweight that will relish coming down from 57kg last time out and sees Caulfield for the first time in Saturday’s Group 2.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies in the market are the rails-drawn Faatinah ($7) for the Lindsay Park stable who have four horses in the Caulfield Cup field later at the meeting and Badajoz ($8).

Nicconi five-year-old Faatinah has had four runs at Caulfield for two seconds and is out to break a notable drought, the last start Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) sixth placegetter chasing his first win since September of 2016.

That was down the Flemington straight in the Group 2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m), while Faatinah went on to run second behind Our Boy Malachi in last year’s Caulfield Sprint results two runs later.

He was under two lengths beaten by the Golden Slipper winning filly She Will Reign in the Moir Stakes first-up and will be fitter for the run returning to Caulfield where he also finished runner-up to Sheidel in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) back in February as a $41 roughie.

Badajoz jumps from barrier four with Kerrin McEvoy riding the Godolphin-raced son of Commands, the consistent five-year-old after a third straight win after saluting over 1100m here in easier company on October 1.
