2019 Caulfield Stakes: Tips And Race Preview

Going for the in form local in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Caulfield Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. Avilius has done little wrong and hence he is a $2.40 shot.

Gailo Chop looks our leader from barrier one. Homesman and Gatting should be handy. AVILIUS (5) let rip last time and won really well on the line. Big margin and better suited out to this trip now. Ducks look lined up and expecting a big performance.

HOMESMAN (7) didn't have a lot of luck in the Underwood. Really good effort off a tough run and better than ever this prep. Softer run here has him going close.

DREAM CASTLE (9) runs for the yard that won this last year. He may not be as good as Benbatl but he can still measure right up with some smart form in the book. Similar story DANCETERIA (10). Must be respected. CAPE OF GOOD HOPE (11) another import with a nice profile.


1st – 5 Avilius

2nd – 7 Homesman

3rd – 9 Dream Castle

4th – 10 Danceteria

2019 Caulfield Guineas: Tips And Race Preview

Taking a little value in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Caulfield Guineas. Kubrick brings in the Sydney form and he is at $9.

Big field and pace from the likes of 2, 3, 6, 10. Expecting a strongly run mile. KUBRICK (4) has a wide draw to overcome but he brings appealing formlines. He was terrific first up and then sound in the Golden Rose last time which was a hotter race than what he tackles here. Will camp back off them and power at them late.

DALASAN (2) also has to offset a wide draw. He should press forward. Looking for the mile last time when flat footed at the turn but strong late. Even luck early makes him mighty hard to stop.

SUBEDAR (7) comes back from 1800m. Think that suits and no shock to see him run well. ALLIGATOR BLOOD (3) has to be a hope off winning the Prelude while the mile will suit SUPER SETH (5) through the same race.


1st – 4 Kubrick

2nd – 2 Dalasan

3rd – 7 Subedar

4th – 3 Alligator Blood

2019 Thousand Guineas: Tips And Race Preview

It seems like a Godolphin show in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Thousand Guineas. Lyre will be a better price at $5.50.

Stablemates Acting and I Am Eloquent may control the pace. Doesn't look like being run at a breakneck speed. LYRE (1) was playing catch up in the Prelude but hummed home there over 1400m and looks to be back on track now. Shapes as though the mile will suit and she can add another Group 1 to her mantle without surprising.

FLIT (3) had no luck at all in that Prelude and should have plenty more to offer. Mile looks no concern for her and clear running at the right time will see her rattling into the finish.

EMERALDS (10) was big odds in the Tea Rose but her effort was terrific in a really strong contest and this will prove no tougher. TENLEY (2) and MISSILE MANTRA (7) have been showing glimpses.


1st – 1 Lyre

2nd – 3 Flit

3rd – 10 Emeralds

4th – 2 Tenley
