Caulfield Tips for July 10
Race 1 - 11.50am Neds Handicap Tips
2. ZAPATEO won on debut at Geelong where she came from near last on the bend to swoop past them late. She showed a beautiful turn of foot there and still raced green, so there will be plenty of improvement to come from the outing. With race experience, a win on the board and a lot of progression to come, she deserves to be the on-topper here.
I have a lot of time for 10. Viviane who was very good first-up behind Argentia at Flemington before proving no match for Jigsaw last time out. That may have been a flat second-up run and with what I am hoping is an improving track, she can run better here.
1. Vianello was fourth in that Jigsaw race last start when a drifter in betting. She was plain, but should take improvement from that outing.
6. First Division trialled up very well in January before tailing off in a Stawell jumpout on June 22. Henry Dwyer would not bring her here for no reason.
Race 2 - 12.25pm Neds Filter Form Handicap Tips
4. DEEP SPEED looks mighty hard to beat given that he was competitive in stakes company last spring and was tried at the Gold Coast in January. He has won a Ballarat Synthetic trial nicely and looks ready to go first-up, with the only knock being the wide gate as he may be trapped wide. Could this be Jamie Kah's 100th winner?
8. Brazen Bully is one of mine, with the weights not favouring him, but I believe he is a much better horse than his rating suggests. Slow horses don't finish a half-length from a track record which is what he did in his maiden win last start.
7. Sacred Palace recorded a nice win last start at Bendigo, which could be a kick starter for the horse's confidence.
1. Zipping Boy has to carry a big weight here but is simply a winner.
Race 3 - 1.00pm Premier Signs Handicap Tips
9. ZORRO'S DREAM form looks very good on paper, although the string of seconds ys beginning to look like the old him who could not get the job done. He beat Express Pass three races back, but that horse turned the tables on him last start down the straight. Back up to 1100m is ideal and looks to have the perfect opportunity to register a fourth career win.
2. Whipcracker Way was game in defeat last start behind Pintoff who was an all the way winner. He was well beaten two back by Zorro's Dream at Flemington, but only has a half kilo weight swing coming into this.
4. Meteorite was back to his best last start with Madison Lloyd in the saddle. He was tough to the line, although the 1100m could be a stretch for him.
10. La Vina has had a freshen-up and gone back to the trials since his two disappointing runs after a great win at Warrnambool in May. Fresh is best?
Race 4 - 1.35pm Michael Fox Handicap Tips
A wide open race, so going with some value in 8. MADAME BOLLI who was a winner on the Ballarat Synthetic on Tuesday. That was effortless work, so very happy that she is on a quick back-up into this race. Synthetic track winners to the city ofter perform well and can be underestimated by the market.
7. HAI SUN was super first-up where she was too good on the pace here. This looks a slightly stronger event, but there was a lot of merit to that win.
4. Zesty Belle is best at her first couple of runs for the prep. Disappointing that she has drawn wide here, but with a dog leg bend, she should be in with a show if she can find some cover.
10. Sugartown comes out of a strong form race last start and is much better suited back around a bend.
Race 5 - 2.15pm MRC Membership Renewal Handicap Tips
5. OVER THE SKY was caught flat-footed in a very fast run race last start where there was a heavy on-pace bias. This horse prefers a race run a little slower where he can use that short turn of foot to put a race away like he had done at his prior two starts.
6. Tooradin is a lovely horse who probably did not handle the sticky conditions at Sandown all that well last start, yet still toughed it out to run an honest second. Back to firmer ground is ideal.
15. Relucent was heavily backed last start in the Over The Sky race, just holding his position in running. Do not be shocked to see punters get around him again.
3. Zachaz was last seen running third in the Swan Hill Cup behind Adelaide Ace who ran well last week. Maybe up to the 2000m journey he will be better suited.
Race 6 - 2.55pm Behind The Barriers "Boxing Challenge" 7/8 Tips
Sticking with the synthetic winners to city, going with 8. ZA'EX who was very good over the mile first-up. He is a horse who will have taken great improvement from that effort and he gets a jockey on board who has a lot of confidence in Brett Prebble. Another who is likely to be underestimated by the market.
7. Red Santa looks the one to beat off a game third placing in a strong race last start, and he will appreciate the 2000m trip. Jamie Kah on is no negative.
1. Namakwa was a winner two back at Flemington before finishing third last start behind Unique Artist who has subsequently flopped.
5. Flossing was a good winner at Bairnsdale two back before running well in a much stronger race at Moe last start. Any rain around will help.
Race 7 - 3.35pm Catanach's Jewellers Handicap Tips
9. CHIEF ALTONY deserved the win last start at Sandown after there was a late scratching behind the gates. He was incredibly stiff two back at Flemington which most punters would not want to re-live, but now coming back to a stronger metro race, he looks well suited, especially with in-form apprentice Tom Stockdale in the saddle.
7. Thought Of That ran well at Flemington last start, finishing not too far from Mr Tipla who subsequently ran well again. He was a Norman Robinson winner here as a three-year-old.
3. Think 'N' Fly is a great miler, running well over that trip again three weeks ago after copping some interference in the straight.
2. Strategic Phil was a good winner here two races back and was not suited in the Swan Hill Cup in a race that was for those coming on from the back of the field.
Race 8 - 4.10pm Neds Sir John Monash Stakes Tips
10. MALKOVICH was way too good last start when carrying 61kg in three-year-old handicap company. He loves sting out of the ground and is just as effective on good tracks where he holds a great record. Has ticked the Caulfield box and is going to take a power of beating against horses who are first-up and lacking the race fitness.
1. Viridine has been good this time in, last start finishing third in the June Stakes, but most importantly is a two-time winner around Caulfield.
12. Villami is a weapon first-up with three wins from four starts next to her name. She has recently won a heavy track trial at Rosehill, but the issue I have is that she has not yet ticked the Caulfield box which can be difficult for some Sydney siders.
6. Red Can Man looked to have come back in good fashion with a nice Traralgon trial win, but did lack that wow factor down the Flemington straight. Happy to give him another chance, back around a bend.
Race 9 - 4.42pm Les Taggart "Bar's Closed" Tips
8. JUMBO OZAKI was a once spruiked galloper, now injury plagued quite often, but nonetheless he is still a quality galloper on his day. His first-up run was very encouraging and now gets to his preferred trip over 1400m second-up which is the right time of the prep to catch him. As long as he does not put in a flatty second-up off the long spell, he is going to be in this with a big chance.
13. Grinzinger Allee is race favourite after a fantastic prep last time in where he should have won first-up at Flemington before proving too good for Holbein in January.
11. Fundraiser has been ridden quiet at both starts this prep and he now looks ready to win. He is a winner third-up, but he just needs the track to dry a little more to give him his best chance.
7. Mr Tipla is as honest as the day is long, so do not be shocked to see him somewhere in the finish as always.
