Caulfield Guineas 2022 Barriers: Favourites Draw Ideally

The favourites in Caulfield Guineas 2022 betting for Saturday’s $3 million feature have come up trumps in Tuesday barrier draw with Golden Mile and Berkeley Square drawing gates five and seven respectively.

A capacity field of three-year-olds colts and geldings faces off in this year’s Group 1 Neds Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

Godolphin’s runaway Prelude winner, Aft Cabin, is the notable omission having been forced to spend the spring on the sidelines due to a bleeding attack in trackwork last weekend.

The Royal Blue brigade are still well represented in the Caulfield Guineas field with new favourite, the James Cummings-trained Golden Mile, to jump from gate five with the flying James McDonald in the saddle.

McDonald replaces Sam Clipperton aboard the talented Aster colt, winner of the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) by over three lengths two back, who was last seen running a brave fourth to Jacquinot in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) in Sydney.

Golden Mile now sits top of the updated Caulfield Guineas odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $3.60 to hand Cummings back-to-back wins following the stable’s success with Anamoe last spring.

Barrier five recently produced back-to-back Caulfield Guineas winners with Mighty Boss (2017) and The Autumn Sun (2018), the latter ridden by McDonald, both saluting from the gate Saturday’s favourite will jump from.

Berkeley Square is the only other runner in the capacity field under $10 in Caulfield Guineas betting with the Dan O’Sullivan-trained Territories gelding from Ballarat at $5 for his third win on the trot.

Saturday is a notable rise in grade for the up-and-comer who won a Benchmark 70 at Flemington on August 6 carrying 59kg before his narrow victory in the Listed Exford Plate (1400m) at headquarters on September 10.

The Exford Plate form was franked with the third placed Tijuana going on to win the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) over the mile at Moonee Valley.

Ben & JD Hayes’ American Pharoah colt also runs in the Caulfield Guineas this weekend with Tijuana drawing wider in barrier 10, which could become eight with the two emergencies out, and paying $10 to win.

He is out to be the first horse to do the Stutt Stakes – Caulfield Guineas double since Whobegotyou back in 2008.

Anamoe won the Caulfield Guineas from barrier 13 last year, but he along with Press Statement (14 in 2015), are the only to win from double digits since 2008.

This year the widest-drawn runners are the Hawkes Racing-trained Stutt Stakes runner-up Foujita San (18), Richard Laming’s last start Sandown winner Bank Maur (17), the Lloyd Kennewell-trained Prelude runner-up Meridius (16) and Chris Waller’s Pierro colt Osipenko (15).

The other key challengers being kept somewhat safe in the markets include the rails-drawn Dundeel colt Elliptical ($12) for Anthony & Sam Freedman and Prelude third place-getter Amenable ($13) out in gate 14.
