2019 Caulfield Cup Day Tips & Best Bets

Caulfield Cup day is upon us as the first of the three major Group One races hits 

The rail is true the entire circuit so it will be interesting to see if the track favours those inside few lanes or from six to 10m where the track has not been used as much.

A huge 10 race card awaits and we are keen to get stuck into finding you some winners.

Caulfield Favourites

Race 5 No. 1 Demerara - $4.80 via BetEasy

I was keen on this girl last week before she was scratched in what was stronger company.

She was good in the Bobbie Lewis first up on September 14 where she found herself in a potential Group One form race.

She comes back to the 1100m and back to mares grade which suits her very well and has been kept fresh which is another plus.

She has never missed a placing second up and does have versatility to sit closer to the speed if she needs.

She can run on any ground, but any sting out of the ground will only enhance her chances.

Caulfield Roughies

Race 7 No. 7 I Am Immortal - $10 via BetEasy

I have a high opinion of this galloper and I am willing to forgive one run where nothing went to plan.

This horse is a bowl along out in front type, playing catch me if you can with his opposition, which did not happen last start.

He was ridden with cover, forcing him to over race and take away any sprint in his finish. He also raced without his tongue tie which may have caused him to race erratic.

One more chance to prove he has taken the leap into his three-year-old year and to prove that he is a genuine stakes class sprinter.

I am sure the plan will be to let him roll out in front with no weight on his back over the five furlongs.

Caulfield Best Bet

Race 8 No. 2 Royal Meeting

This horse is my early value tip for the Cantala Stakes in a fortnight's time, which looks the likely target being that they are running first up over 1400m.

He was a Group One winner at his second start in France, beating Hermosa, who since has won another two Group One's herself.

This is elite form for a race like this and the fact that Speed Bin Suroor has brought out a horse that has had two starts to Australia is a sign that he is very high quality.

This race does have  a habit of pulling out a roughie, but it is not often an international galloper runs in this either.

If he can bring those international form lines to this race, I do not see him being beaten.

Caulfield Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 2 Celestial Falls

That was some win second up over 1800m on September 25, taking a step up from the 1300m.

She lead all the way in the Oaks trial with plenty of improvement left in her being only second up in the campaign. 

The next obvious step is to tick the 2000m box which is what she will be looking to do in this race.

She meets every horse here better at the weights being a set weights race and, Mark Newnham knows how to train an Oaks contender which gives me more confidence in her chances here.
