The colts and geldings do battle in the Caulfield Guineas (Race 8) over 1600m and we’re going to see some highly talented horses on show.
This is a very open race, but I’m sticking with the Sydney form and backing the Godolphin colt, Impending.
He has always shown good ability, but last start when the blinkers were applied, I thought he was awesome.
The rise in trip looks ideal and I don’t think the ice barrier will worry this colt because he’ll settle back in the field anyway. Keep an eye on this good looking colt hitting the line strongly down the outside.
Divine Prophet and Evacuation are both highly talented and it’s good to see early market support for them. Both of these colts get every chance to win from their perfect barriers.
One horse who I have a massive opinion of in this race is the Kiwi trained, Sacred Elixir. This gelding has only had seven starts but he’s putting together a very nice resume.
He went to Brisbane and won the J.J Atkins in nice style at the end of last prep and then first-up this time in, he won the prelude like a good animal.
This is a big ask second-up but he has drawn well and his class will take him a long way on Saturday.
Revolving Door ran a much improved race last start and was probably unlucky to not beat home Sacred Elixir. He’s good each way value and he’s drawn nicely which ensures a nice run throughout.
If you’re looking for a horse at bigger odds, then Land Of Plenty is the one.
He has come a long way in his first prep and if he gets some luck from the wide barrier then he should run a very cheeky race.
