The Caulfield Stakes is a Group One WFA event run over 2000m at Caulfield, as a natural lead in to the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.

We have seen plenty of Cox Plate contenders come through this race such as Happy Trails and Caulfield Cup contenders such as Mongolian Kahn.

This year, the field is totally unknown, with trainers quite hesitant in stating where their horses will be sent.

2020 Caulfield Stakes Tips

Caulfield Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Avilius

He was the favourite in last year's edition of the race, but was simply too far back to beat the likes of a fresh Cape Of Good Hope and fit Harlem and Humidor.

He went super first-up this prep in the Chelmsford when simply too far back, but clearly unlucky not to win.

He looks back to his best, with the George Main looking his likely next target at Randwick.

After winning that very race last year, he made his way to Victoria to contend the Caulfield Stakes where he was in no mans land out the back, then contending the Cox Plate where he was over the top.

He seems to peak third-up into his prep which is when we will likely see him in Victoria, so the current odds available will shorten right up on race day.

Caulfield Stakes 2020 Next Best Bet - Perfect Jewel

A shock starter in this weeks Makybe Diva Stakes, she is looking to make her impact at WFA level this spring.

Whether she heads down this path or a handicapping path will be decided this weekend, but if she were to come to Caulfield, she has clearly performed well in the Makybe Diva.

With the field so unknown for this event, there is potential for this to be a weaker WFA event.

She has a lethal turn of foot that can put most horses to the sword, but as stated, all will be told this weekend in the Makybe Diva Stakes.

Caulfield Stakes Roughie - Harlem

A close third placing in this event last year sees him as a genuine roughie once again.

He has tactical speed to give him a huge advantage over the likes of Avilius, as it did last year as well.

Harlem will take his place in the Makybe Diva this weekend which will likely be another fitness run for him before he tackles the 2000m journey second and third-up.

At $51, there are a lot worse betting options that are shorter than him in the market.
