2019 Caulfield Guineas Futures Tips & Best Bet - Saturday, October 13

The Caulfield Guineas is known as a 'stallion making mile' held at Caulfield race course on October 13.

Restricted to three-year-olds, colts and now stallions such as All Too Hard, Pierro, So You Think, The Autumn Sun and Lonhro have all contested or won the race.

This race carries a purse worth $2 Million and is most often the second last race of the card.

Horses such as Dalasan and Alligator Blood look set to fight out the Group One event and instantly become multi-million dollar colts.

Your tips for the Caulfield Guineas can be found here.

Caulfield Guineas Futures Best Bet - Dalasan @ $3

Dalasan is the horse on the rise and the step-up to the mile from the 1400m looks right down his alley. 

He was very good in the Guineas Prelude, storming home his last 400m. Hugh Bowman will jump aboard the colt in the Group One which gives you more confidence that he can get the absolute top out of this colt.

He has now had a run around Caulfield which will fare well for him come the big race on October 13.

I think over the mile he will have Alligator Blood covered and we wills see a horse that may head to a Cox Plate after.

Caulfield Guineas Futures Value Bet - Groundswell @ $12

This horse jumped out of the ground in the Prelude, not quite running down Alligator Blood and not quite holding off Dalsan. 

His sectionals late were very strong and showed that the would want every bit of 1600m, putting him right into contention.

Those preludes are often good lead ups when Golden Rose place getters are not coming down, which they do not look to be at this stage (maybe Exceedance).

When taking your trifectas and first fours, he is key player in the race.
