First acceptances for a host of upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival features closed on Tuesday including those for the Group 1 $3 million Neds Caulfield Guineas (1600m) which is set to run on October 14 in Melbourne on the same day Sydney hosts the $20 million The Everest.

The latest Caulfield Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au on the first acceptors have Waller’s now three-time Group 1 champion Militarize as the firm $2.80 favourite to travel south and continue his winning ways.

The Dundeel colt was huge in the autumn winning the Group 1 Inglis Sires – Champagne Stakes double, and he added to his trophy collection at Rosehill last Saturday with a magic ride from the ‘Magic Man’ Joao Moreira to flash home from nowhere and narrowly steal the show in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

Militarize will be third-up and fit in the Caulfield Guineas field and back up to a mile having won the Champagne over the 1600m distance as a two-year-old.

Master horseman Waller has prepared two previous Caulfield Guineas winners with Press Statement (2015) and The Autumn Sun (2018).

He has paid first acceptances for a total of five horses this season.

Steparty meanwhile is the other all-in favourite at $3.80 Caulfield Guineas odds to retain his flawless record.

The Paul Preusker-trained Artie Schiller colt took his career record up to a perfect five-from-five start when saluting in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) on September 23.

Helmet (2011) was the last horse to complete the Caulfield Guineas Prelude – Caulfield Guineas double, but the bookies are taking no chances with Steparty who keeps stepping up.

King Colorado for Ciaron Maher & David Eustace is also still under double-figures rated a $9 hope for the Guineas after the winter’s Group 1 J.J. Atkins winner ran seventh in the Golden Rose.

Incredibly no filly has beaten home the boys in the Caulfield Guineas since Surround right  back in 1976.

Of the 43 Caulfield Guineas first acceptances this year three are fillies with the Peter Moody & Katherine Coleman-trained trio Mollynickers, well-bred Autumn Angel who is a daughter of the 2018 champion The Autumn Sun, and Justify filly Legacies who are all 50/1 outsiders.

Other notable Caulfield Guineas 2023 first acceptances include Golden Rose runner-up Encap, the Godolphin-raced Tom Kitten, and Trapeze Artist colt Griff who won the Exford Plate for Maher & Eustace.

The 2023 Neds Caulfield Guineas final acceptances close at 9:00am (AEDT) on Tuesday the 10th of October, 2023.
