Caulfield Guineas fav Dalasan


The Caulfield Guineas headlines the first of the big two week Caulfield Racing of the Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Carnival. This day has now been built into a day with Four Group 1 races and our Expert Melbourne Racing Tipswith analyst Pete Brinky will strongly focus on these races.  It is a superb day of Saturday Racing Tipswith the following feature Group 1 races:
* Group 1 Caulfield Guineas
* Group 1 Toorak Handicap,
* Group 1 Ladbrokes Stakes
* Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas

The Thousand Guineas has recently been moved from the Wednesday stand alone card to the blockbuster opening day of Caulfield Racing as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The day also hosts two Group 2 races in the Herbert Power Stakes and the Schillaci Stakes along with two Group 3 races the Northwood Plume Stakes and the Group 3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes.

And of course the week after is the star attraction of the Melbourne Racing Tips Caulfield Carnival with the Group 1 Caulfield Cup next week.

Melbourne Racing Tips Caulfield Guineas

The Caulfield Guineas is a Group 1 race run over the testing 1600m at the Caulfield racecourse as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The prize money for the race is worth $2 million! This race has significance in so many ways but probably most famous for being a “stallion maker”. The winner of this race if still a colt can go on and command a $20-30 million sale to a stud as being a cream of the crop 3YO is very much desired.

This race is so interesting in that it brings together a mix of sprinter/milers and those that can run 2000 metres plus. Many of the horses competing would have come through the Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) earlier in the Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Carnival or the Bill Stutt Stakes over 1600m at the Valley. Some runners will come through the Golden Rose Stakes in Sydney.

Also you can get a progressive type of horse from the provincials come to town and have a shot at the step up in grade.  The most intriguing part of this race is can the horse run a mile. Many are having their first shot at this distance and although they may be giving every indication they will get the 1600m you never really know until they do.

Melbourne Racing Tips Toorak Handicap

This is one of Australia’s most prestigious mile races and it is almost 140 years old and iteeped in so much tradition. This race does carry a ballot exemption from the Caulfield Cup although in this day and age the race is being tended to won by a more “brilliant” type horse and unlikely to stretch out to the 2400m the following week for the Caulfield Cup.

In recent years the race was altered under its conditions to a set weights and penalties race as opposed to a strict quality handicap. This has enabled a classier field over the last few years compete for Group 1 glory. As a lead in to this race horses may have had a run in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes or the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke, the Makybe Diva run earlier in the Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Crnival may even be a path. Since the alteration in the handicapping methods favourites have won 5 of the last 8 races.

Melbourne Racing Tips Thousand Guineas

The Group 1 Thousand Guineas is a race for three year old fillies its run over 1600m at the Caulfield racecourse and is a $1 Million purse, there is only 1 other Group 1 mile race for the Girls (the Group 1 Flight Stakes in Sydney) This race used to run as the stand alone feature n the midweek Wednesday meeting however with a restructure it is now run on the first day of the famous two day Caulfield Carnival as part of the Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Carnival. Many fillies lead into this race either through the Caulfield Guineas Prelude or historically the Edward Manifold Stakes, however with this race now only beiong run the week before it would take a tough filly to back up and win! Some of the Sydneysiders will come through the Princess series, although with the restructure of the Sydney Racing Tips Carnival we would be possibly unlikely to see them however they could back up quickly from the Flight Stakes. The Fillies that really come through this well would progress down the path to the VRC Oaks

Melbourne Racing Tips Ladbrokes Stakes

Registered as the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes the renamed Ladbrokes stakes is a Group 1 run at WFA over 2000m and is seen as a great lead in to the Melbourne Racing Tips Cox Plate run a fortnight later. This race generally has some strong lead in formlines, in the last 18 years 8 winers have come through the Melbourne Racing Tisp Underwood stakes and 3 each through the George Main Stakes and the Makybe Diva Stakes, it shows that having the 1800m run under the belt can be a big advantage. In that period as well there have been 5 last start winners who have gone on to win this race it serves as a good guide to the Melbourne Racing Tips Cox Plate
