2019 Caulfield Cup: Tips And Race Preview
Taking a leading Euro chance in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Caulfield Cup at Caulfield on Saturday, Constantinople runs for Luke Nolen and is a $8.50 chance.
Wolfe drives through and pressure from out wide comes from the likes of Angel Of Truth and Finche with Mirage Dancer and Hartnell others that could press forward from out wider.
CONSTANTINOPLE (11) draws ideally and that gives him a chance to settle midfield and relax. Has produced some very strong performances at home this year and looks like improving again with the benefit of more racing. Talented a massive upside.
He goes on top of FINCHE (6) who can roll forward from the wide draw and look to make this a good test at the trip. Stays really well. MER DE GLACE (3) needs some luck in running from his wide draw but has a top jock booked for the task and should go well.
MR QUICKIE (12) was flat last time but his return was an eye-catcher and stamped him as one of the key players in this race while THE CHOSEN ONE (16) booked his ticket last week with a strong win and looks sure to go well again.
2019 CAULFIELD CUP – SELECTIONS
1st – 11 Constantinople
2nd – 6 Finche
3rd – 3 Mer De Glace
4th – 12 Mr Quickie
2019 Caulfield Classic: Tips And Race Preview
Will a Derby runner come to the fore in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Caulfield Classic. Thought Of That could get the right set up here and he is at $4.40
Thought Of That looks the one to take up the running a field lacking obvious pace. THOUGHT OF THAT (7) is thrown into much deeper waters here but he could get complete control of things from the front and he leapt out of the ground when allowed to roll last time. Strong rating win and no shock to see him give this a mighty shake.
WARNING (3) won the key lead up. It was a strongly run race and likely to face a completely different scenario here but have to respect all the same. MIAMI BOUND (9) raced a touch flat last time but lookng for this trip now.
Similar story POWER SCHEME (1) who was very plain in the Stutt but the fresh run shows him to be much better than that. CREATOR (4) could be a knockout at big odds.
2019 CAULFIELD CLASSIC – SELECTIONS
1st – 7 Thought Of That
2nd – 3 Warning
3rd – 9 Miami Bound
4th – 1 Power Scheme
2019 Caulfield Sprint: Tips And Race Preview
Going for a nice mare in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Caulfield Sprint, Miss Leonidas just needs to run up to the last effort and she is at $3.80.
Strong tempo can be expected with I Am Immortal and Not Enough Effort flying across to challenge Miss Leonidas.
MISS LEONIDAS (4) was terrific around the Valley last time and if she can replicate what she did there today she is clearly the horse to beat. Has ripped around here in the past so no issue at all coming to Caulfield.
I AM IMMORTAL (7) has also ripped around Caulfeld and posted some strong ratings but he was just plain first up. Kept fresh and tongue tie goes on. Could be a clue to the fresh effort there. Smart stable place him agressively. Wary.
CRYSTAL DREAMER (1) was big odds but a good winner here fresh and set for this since. GOD OF THUNDER (9) will be rattling home and TACTICAL ADVANTAGE (3) is well up to the grade and much better suited than he was around the Valley last time. Can be a sharp improver.
2019 CAULFIELD SPRINT – SELECTIONS
1st – 4 Miss Leonidas
2nd – 7 I Am Immortal
3rd – 1 Crystal Dreamer
4th – 9 God Of Thunder
2019 Tristarc Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Giving Godolphin another chance in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Tristarc Stakes, Pohutukawa looks better suited here and she is at $4.60.
Pace from 3, 6, 9, 10. Should be pressure for positions early. POHUTUKAWA (7) was okay fresh before improving nicely second up in the Blazer. Couldn't reel in the leader there but the pace of the race made that task a tough one. Closed strongly and ready to perform at her top now.
BACCARAT BABY (8) beat nice horses first up in Brisbane without having to be at her very best. Leaves her with plenty more to offer coming here second up. She's a big threat. SAVATIANO (6) will be fitter second up and can run well.
SPANISH WHISPER (3) was ordinary in the Blazer but her win prior says she's good enough. Could bounce back. INVINCIBELLA (1) will be fitter and has all the right formlines to figure. Respect.
2019 TRISTARC STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 7 Pohutukawa
2nd – 8 Baccarat Baby
3rd – 3 Spanish Whisper
4th – 1 Invincibella
2019 Ethereal Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
A filly who should stay heads up the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Ethereal Stakes, Snapdancer has the right form lines for this race and she is at $6.50.
Celestial Falls goes forward and can take Ocean Miss with her. Snapdancer certainly has the pace to handy to them.
SNAPDANCER (4) has to jump quickly up in trip but she is bred to stay and she brings stronger formlines to the table. Liked her effort in the Thousand Guineas Prelude where a few of them were too slick but she held her ground and shapes as though further would suit. Gets that now.
VEGAS JEWEL (7) was strong winning at the Valley over the mile last time. She is two for two and expect her to measure right up. CELESTIAL FALLS (2) beat GAMAY (8) in the Oaks Trial at Flemington. More depth to this but think that the form can measure right up. ORIENTAL LILY (1) ran on well in the Manifold and could improve again up to 2000m. Respected.
2019 ETHEREAL STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 4 Snapdancer
2nd – 7 Vegas Jewel
3rd – 2 Celestial Falls
4th – 8 Gamay
2019 Moonga Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Moonga Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday land on a European horse. Royal Meeting is such an interesting horse and he is at $3.40.
Tom Melbourne, Terbium and Desert Lord should all hold positive spots and Streets Of Avalon hunts forward looking to lead.
ROYAL MEETING (2) is a most interesting runner. Just the two runs to his name, both last season in Europe, winning on debut and then posting a strong Group 1 win in France where he knocked off the subsequent 1000 Guineas winner in Hermosa. Massive form for a race like this but the best part of 12 months off and on the other side of the world now.
LAND OF PLENTY (1) won the Toorak at this carnival last year. Had a setback since then but clearly good enough if right. DESERT LORD (9) was sound in the Epsom and that's a good lead in to this. He may be the betting option. TOM MELBOURNE (6) and MANOLO BLAHNIQ (7) have both set themselves up to peak for this and have to be respected.
2019 MOONGA STAKES – SELECTIONS
1st – 2 Royal Meeting
2nd – 1 Land Of Plenty
3rd – 9 Desert Lord
4th – 6 Tom Melbourne
