Back to a proper metropolitan track in Caulfield this Saturday for the Victorian racing circuit. Read on for our best bets on the card in the latest Saturday soapbox below!
Rail Position: Out 12m Entire Circuit
Track Type: Turf
Track Condition: Good 3
Given the track has had a decent break (not as long as usual) post-Caulfield Cup carnival the track should be in pretty good condition.
Normal fast-track racing at Caulfield favors those on pace and this week should be no different.
Caulfield Best Bets
Race 4 #6 Vinland @ $2.20
We’ve been saying it all prep and last start Vinland really stamped himself as a serious horse of the future with a dominant win defying a drifting betting pattern. Should be winning again although has been smashed in betting already. Might get better on the day?
Race 8 #2 Thermal Current @ $7.50
The old warrior! Really keen here, can’t see how he doesn’t run top three. Paraded like he needed the blow-out last start and possesses a lethal second-up record. Maps well and is overs! Crystal Dreamer short enough, Oberland is the other danger we want to keep safe.
Race 9 #13 Creativity @ $5.00
Trialled well leading into the sound fresh run when she loomed to win. Has the scope to be progressing beyond this grade and we get a price today. Should be able to settle handy and figure in the finish.
Bonus: Doomben Bets
Rail Position: +4 metres Entire Course.
Dual Track Meeting: N
Track Type: Turf
Track Condition: Good 4
Race 5 #1 Rudy @ $8.00
The old warrior! Two runs in this time around have been better than they look on the form guide. The smaller field this time around should ensure he can settle closer and gets the Top Cat Timmy Clark on board. Marked him $5 and happy to be betting each-way at the current price.
Race 8 #3 Most Important @ $6.50
The feature race of the day is a beauty and we think this bloke is the one who will get the sweet run. Good jockey on board, soft draw and rates very highly. Big watch also on Ruettiger having his first start in QLD for Ben Currie (ex Victorian horse).
