2019 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Going for the light weights in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. Begood Toya Mother is suited in a handicap and is the $3.60 fav.
Cliff's Edge rolls forward but Begood Toya Mother and Age Of Chivalry could hold him out from their low draws. Expect a true tempo.
BEGOOD TOYA MOTHER (14) worked hard in the run in the Memsie last time. That was a high pressure Group 1 and he stood up well. Back to a handicap now and he tumbles to the minimum. Set for the race and it looks like they have got it right. Top pick.
AMPHITRITE (12) ran really well first up. Closed strongly and if the leaders do crumble here she looks the best placed to sweep through and pick up the pieces.
SO SI BON (5) has been fantastic in two runs this prep and rates highly on his Memsie effort. WIDGEE TURF (8) and DESPATCH (3) are good 1400m horses that need to be given hopes.

1st – 14 Begood Toya Mother
2nd – 12 Amphitrite
3rd – 5 So Si Bon
4th – 8 Widgee Turf
2019 Naturalism Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Lindsay Park holds the key to the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Naturalism Stakes, Super Titus looks to win its way into the Caulfield Cup and is $4.80 to do that.
Wolfe will press on and there should be pressure around him for handy spots. SUPER TITUS (11) won the lead up and did it in good style. Looks to have plenty more to come based on that win and 2000m is going to be ideal in what is no doubt an early spring target for him. Can stamp his ticket to the Caulfield Cup.
Stablemate SIKANDARABAD (5) fits a similar mould. Third up and ready to peak out to 2000m off a pair of very solid efforts. Liked the latest and the betting edge may well sit with him. WOLFE (14) was a fail on the heavy last time but if the rain stays away here he can quickly bounce back. Caulfield should suit him on speed.
Terrific return from SUPERNOVA (15) and he can come here and run well on the back of that. STEEL PRINCE (4) also arrives off a strong return. Warmed right up late there and 2000m is going to suit ideally now.
2019 NATURALISM STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 11 Super Titus
2nd – 5 Sikandarabad
3rd – 14 Wolfe
4th – 15 Supernova
2019 How Now Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
A flying mare is the focus of the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 How Now Stakes, Pippie can't do any wrong at present and she is at$2.30.
Pippie gets running early and should get control. PIPPIE (4) has the pace to get control of this from the front and she is quick enough to keep them from snapping at her heels and worrying her. Finds a rhythm, she clearly works well with Melham, and she runs the sort of time that makes her really hard to catch in this class.
TOFANE (11) could be a sharp improver. Wrong race fresh but strong home to win last time and that can be the run that brings her to her top now.
VICTORY KINGDOM (12) bombed the start in the same race. Good deal better than the bare result there. DAWN DAWN (10) is off a win and has a strong chance while EMBRACE ME (3) did enough behind Pippie last time to be considered.
2019 HOW NOW STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 4 Pippie
2nd – 11 Tofane
3rd – 12 Victory Kingdom
4th – 10 Dawn Dawn
