2019 Caulfield Guineas Tips & Best Bet - Saturday, October 12

The Caulfield Guineas is known as a 'stallion making mile' held at Caulfield race course on October 12.

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.

Dalsan and Alligator Blood control the market and look set to fight out the Group One event and instantly become multi-million dollar colts.

2019 Caulfield Guineas Best Bet - Dalasan @ $3

The bad gate is cause for concern, but there's no doubting Dalasan's class.

He drifted from $2.50 after the barrier draw (which is fair) and second favourite Alligator Blood came in to the $5 quote from $6.

These two fought out the prelude, with Dalsan storming home looking for the mile.

This race on Saturday has a bit more pace on and will give both horses their opportunity to come home. 

All Dalasan will need is to find himself in the three-wide line with cover and he will be too good for them over the mile.

His turn of foot is what good horses produce and the addition of Hugh Bowman in the saddle only adds to my confidence.

I have been a fan of this horse for a while as you would have read from previous posts, but he is a top quality animal and would not be out of the equation in a Cox Plate with a better gate.

Caulfield Guineas Best Bet: Dalsan - $3 via BetEasy

Caulfield Guineas Value Bet - Roccabascerana @ $17

He looks a good roughie in the race for multiples. 

He was in the finish in the Prelude and is a natural front runner. 

Drawing barrier one looks a positive as he will kick up from that gate, as well as having Linda Meech in the saddle who we know can ride a horse on the pace.

If they do not go hell for leather in front with The Holy One, this bloke will have every chance to nip away from the field on the turn with his big stride.

He may not be as classy as Dalasan and Alligator Blood, but he is a winner and a very honest performer and will try his guts out over the mile.

Verdict

We were going to play Dalasan with 19 units but we will just hold off four units because of the bad gate.

The last five will be on Roccabascerana in case he can get away from the field on the turn.

Best Bet: Dalasan @ 3.00 at bet365 - 15 Units
Value Bet: Roccabascerana @ 17.00 at Beteasy - 5 Units
