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, Russian Camelot dominates the betting as he progresses to the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup.

2020 Caulfield Stakes Tips

Caulfield Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Russian Camelot

He is the best horse in Australia, winning the Underwood last start in great fashion and doing it on the speed where they were not walking.

Although Humidor came home in faster sectionals, he was out the back doing no work while Russian Camelot was punching the breeze.

Barrier four looks the perfect gate, where Oliver will have time to either snag him back or come out running with Gailo Chop.

He is no bet at the price, but watch a future champion run around and certify his Cox Plate favouritism.

Caulfield Stakes 2020 Next Best Bet - Arcadia Queen

If Pike comes out wide instead of ducking back to the rail in the Underwood, arguable she runs second and does beat home Humidor.

It is hard to see her turning the tables on Russian Camelot, but expect her to possibly pressure him if he is up near the pace as every jockey will know they will not beat the favourite unless they try something to upset him in the running.

She gets around Caulfield and the step up to 2000m will suit perfectly, so she just needs the favouirte to have an unfavourable run in transit.

Caulfield Stakes Roughie - Levendi

A Group One winner back in April of 2018, Levendi bounced back to a bit of form last start at Moonee Valley, running third in the JRA Cup.

He is likely to jump and settle forward, so he could be the horse to keep Russian Camelot out wide and give him that torrid run.

He is an unlikely winner of the race, but it was good to see him find some form last start as he heads to a race such as the Moonee Valley Cup on Cox Plate day.
