Caulfield Race 2 – A Closer Look at Weir’s Hopefuls

New Zealand four-year old Lucky For All resumes second-up at Caulfield on Saturday, and trainer Darren Weir feels the son of multiple Group 1 winner Tavistock might be his best chance of the day.

“He’s a fit, well horse, didn’t work that well during the week but he’s the best of mine their today” Weir told RSN’s Racing Pulse on Friday.

Lucky For All, above, is the firm favourite ahead of Race 2 at Caulfield on Saturday.

After winning at Caulfield over 2000m earlier in May, Lucky For All is the $2.45 favourite in Race 2 on Saturday. His unusual running pattern hasn’t been kind to punters though, and it appears even Weir finds it difficult to get a gauge on the three-time winner.

“To get a guide on him at home, he’s not the right horse, he’s not much of a track worker.

You sort of rely that he looks well and that he’s good in the action, but that’s about the only things you can go on, if you went on his track work you wouldn’t be confident at all.”

Jockey John Allen gets the ride this weekend, and will be tasked with keeping the gelding running head-on down the straight.

The two had a chance to run second last start at Moonee Valley after finding a handy lane down the middle of the straight, but Lucky For All ran sideways toward’s the line.

On a more encouraging note, he did manage to run the third fastest final furlong of the race, and with two other Weir runners in the field on Saturday, it’s likely the stable will cash-in one way or another.

Fellow four-year old Snitzepeg is third-up after running second in the same race against Lucky For All at The Valley. He ran the fastest average speed of that race, although Weir has given the multiple winner only “some rough chance” this weekend.

At $11.00 odds with Ladbrokes.com.au, Snitzepeg is an interesting roughie bet, although he tackles the 1800m trip for the first time with 61.5kg on board.

Weir’s other runner, Pleasuring, has drawn gate 7, and hopes to make up for a disappointing finish at The Valley two week’s ago.
