It won’t be Outrageous to see an upset win in the 2018 Caulfield Guineas

Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes won’t be surprised to see his colt Outrageous score an upset win in Saturday’s Group 1 $2m Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield.

The Hawkes Team of Wayne, Michael and John have been involved with a couple of upset wins in the Caulfield Guineas in recent years with $7 winner Divine Prophet beating the $3.50 favourite Impending in 2016 as well as Outrageous’ sire All Too Hard at $12 winning in 2012 when he beat the $1.22 favourite Pierro.

The Caulfield Guineas is always willing to throw up an upset result with the Mick Price trained Mighty Boss arriving at $101 to claim victory last year.

Outrageous has been installed as one of the outsiders in the Caulfield Guineas field at $34 and will be taking on the Chris Waller trained The Autumn Sun who heads the betting at $1.90 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

“It would be fantastic to win the Caulfield Guineas with the son of a horse that we’ve won it with previously,” Wayne Hawkes told racing.com.

“I’d be more than happy to knock The Autumn Sun off and you’ll hear me from 100 yards away if he’s lucky enough to do that.

“He’s drawn well, the run at The Valley was very good and he’s trained on well since.

“It won’t be easy because The Autumn Sun in the benchmark three-year-old in the country I think and he’s got the score on the board but he’s got to race in Melbourne for the first time and Caulfield has brought many a horse undone before.

“But our bloke should be a Group 1 winner because he was desperately unlucky in the Sires’ Produce and the Champagne Stakes as a two-year-old.”

Outrageous has been unplaced from four runs this campaign but was only beaten just over a length last start when fourth to Leonardo da Hinchi in the Group 2 $200,000 Carlton Draught Stutt Stakes (1600m) The Valley on September 28.

The Autumn Sun confirmed his favouritism for the Caulfield Guineas with a last to first win in the Group 1 $1m De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on September 22.

James McDonald is the new jockey on The Autumn Sun, replacing Kerrin McEvoy who will stay in Sydney on Saturday to ride Redzel in the $13m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick, and the talented rider will give the Waller trained colt every possible chance from barrier five in the fourteen horse Caulfield Guineas field.

Dwayne Dunn takes the ride again on Outrageous who will jump from gate seven wearing the winkers for the first time.
