The weather in Melbourne today is partly cloudy and cool and without any rain on the forecast the current Good (4) Caulfield track rating looks set to remain across the afternoon.

Caulfield racing gets underway at 12:15pm with the Listed $175,000 Magic Millions Debutant Stakes (1000m) and the bumper 10-race card continues through until the late Caulfield Cup hopefuls do battle in the Group 2 $300,000 Neds Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) at 5:45pm.

Punters are treated to four Group 1 races across the card starting with Race 6 – the $1 million Caulfield Stakes running as the Neds Stakes and featuring a small field of six dominated by the Cox Plate favourite Russian Camelot ($1.50 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

Next-up in Race 7 the fillies do battle in the Group 1 $1 million Thousand Guineas over the mile and with the scratching of #14 Yosemite (1), Chris Waller’s Flight Stakes runner-up from last weekend Hungry Heart is into $3.30 to finally shrug her placegetter status.

The meeting’s feature follows with the Group 1 $2 million Neds Caulfield Guineas (1600m) running as Race 8 at 4:30pm and Glenfiddich (8) remains the sole scratching from the field that is led in betting by Golden Rose winner Ole Kirk ($4 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

The last of the elite levels on the program is the Group 1 $500,000 Lexus Toorak Handicap, also run over the 1600m, and all 15 original acceptors remain in play including equal favourites Junipal and Buffalo River.
