Caulfield Tips December 16

Neds Same Race Multi Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Caulfield Best Bet - Race 3 No. 5 Winsum

This talented colt was a dominant winner first-up off a break where he had previously finished three lengths from Hanseatic in a Blue Diamond Prelude.

Coming to Cranbourne, this three-year-old beat an average field very comfortably and is now taking the step up to class one level.

Craig Williams stays aboard and having that one run around Caulfield will have done him the world of good coming back here for his third start.

From barrier two, expect him to get a cosy drag into the race, just in behind the speed and off the fence, awaiting to ping at any time of the race.

Unleash your Neds Toolbox Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Caulfield Value Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Plucky Pirouette

Seeing as none of her opposition have had a start around Caulfield and most of the better chances have ran their best on flat tracks, I am going with the in-form Caroline Jennings stable here.

This galloper performed well at Pakenham when winning last start over the mile and knows how to take a forward position, so they should utilise the good gate of four.

Having the blinkers applied last start really sparked this horse, so we now know that this three-year-old is at her top.

From a stable that is striking at 50% from her last 10 runners, there's plenty in the corner of Plucky Pirouette this Wednesday at Caulfield.

Neds Price Boost Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Caulfield Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Witchful Thinking

This horse has recorded back-to-back wins, the first by eight lengths at Terang and the second at Sandown by just over a length.

Now stepping up in grade, I was not keen to be with her at first glance but she did appeal much more when strip this contest back in regards to her opposition.

With the rail out 14m, and four natural on-pace horses, she should be getting the run of the race, either controlling the speed out in front, or taking the sit in behind those who try and cross.

The 3kg claim from the in-form Will Price is a bonus, bringing that weight down to 58.5kg.

Plucky Pirouette looks a great each-way chance for the flying Caroline Jennings stable.
