2020 Easter Cup: Tips And Race Preview
Anyone could win the 2020 Easter Cup at Caulfield on Saturday, Secret Blaze is the one tipped at $4.80.
Inverloch and Hellova Street will run them along at a decent tempo. SECRET BLAZE (7) chimed in late but couldn't reel in today's rival Inverloch in the Mornington Cup Prelude over this course and distance last start. That was his second run back from a two-month break so should be spot-on now.
STAR MISSILE (13) appreciated the step up to 2000m when 3rd to Salsamor over this course and distance last Saturday, making a stack of late ground against the bias. Needs a 10/10 ride from Williams out of the wide gate but is a winning chance.
SALSAMOR (9) raced handy and was too strong late in a Bm90 over this course and distance seven days ago. Has built a nice picket fence next to his name and it would be brave to rule him out in this tougher race. SO SI BON (3) found the line well in the Golden Mile at Bendigo recently. Classy customer who will be hard to hold out, although the wins are few and far between.

1st – 7 Secret Blaze
2nd – 13 Star Missile
3rd – 9 Salsamor
4th – 3 So Si Bon
2020 Victoria Handicap: Tips And Race Preview
Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Victoria Handicap sticks with favourite, Wild Planet holds the call at $3.10.
Runson will be fired up from the wide gate to cross and lead. WILD PLANET (5) stalked the leaders then ground out a tidy win over this distance in the Listed March Stakes at Flemington five weeks ago. Distance specialist who again enjoys the run of the race from a good gate. Very hard to hold out.
BAM'S ON FIRE (12) has been beaten a length or less in three consecutive Group races for mares, most recently leading only to be gunned down late in the G2 Sunline at Moonee Valley. Loves Caulfield so from a good gate can match it with the boys.
SPANISH WHISPER (6) battled on fairly in bog conditions to finish a respectable 6th in the G1 Coolmore over 1500m at Rosehill four weeks ago. Three-time G2 winner who can give this a mighty shake. HAUNTED (4) made up many lengths to be beaten just a length in the 1200m Hareeba at Mornington recently. Big chance stepping up in distance.
