11.50AM Ladbrokes.com.au Handicap 1200m
Predicted speed: Not clear
1. HUMMA HUMMA
She comes against the males here but her two runs to date have both been good. She ran a solid second in Listed company on debut back in March then won well first up this prep in good time. Jamie Mott stays on, he’s in good form.
3. KAIPAKI (NZ)
He debuted well making ground late and out further with experience suits. He was big odds then and finished only 0.6L off the winner after sitting last.
7. RONAN’S ROCK
He debuts for Lindsay Park with Craig Williams to ride. He has jumped out well.
6. BRUTAL (NZ)
He looked good in a recent jumpout and if he runs up to that he should be up on the speed. With the rail out it could be to his advantage.
12.25PM Ladbrokes Back Yourself Handicap 1200m
Predicted speed: Fast
11. SOUL STAR
She got a long way back first up and was pretty much untested to the line, she found a wall of horses the whole way. Craig Williams stays on and there looks to be enough speed to suit her. Out to 1200m suits, she ran a solid 2nd behind Summer Sham over this trip last prep.
4. JOSEPHIINE SEA
She has a consistent overall record and is going well this prep. She made good ground late here last start only just missing when stepping back in trip.
3. MISS NORWAY
She resumed with a win then ran fairly behind a smart one second up. She made ground late after sitting at the tail of the field here last start. She stays down in the weights with Lachlan King going on and is untried over 1200m but off last starts effort it looks like it will suit
7. MAGNESIUM ROSE
She’s third up here and ran well over this trip last start. She gets a bit of weight relief in this. She won here third up last prep.
1.00PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Handicap 1700m
Predicted speed: Slow
14. MANTASTIC (IRE)
He looks a very strong chance having finished 2nd in his two runs back this prep. He was only 0.5L off Barthelona first up then ran on very strongly last start when stepping up to 1600m only missing by 0.1L. That was here so the track gets a tick. He gets some weight relief, Dean Yendall stays on and the wide draw is no issue as he’s likely to get back.
13. PORTION CONTROL
He’s at very nice each way odds and off his first up effort last start there’s no reason why he can’t go one better. He has won second up, is under the limit with Lachlan King’s claim and should get a nice midfield sit. He likes Caulfield and all of his wins have been on the dry.
11. RIB EYE
He looks close to a win having placed in three of his four runs back this prep. The other run was a close 4th here last start. Chris Parnham stays on and he gets a bit of weight relief. The step out in trip should suit.
5. ANOTHER COLDIE
H’s improving nicely with each run back ad should go close here. He wasn’t far off the Silentz last start. Damian Lane goes on and he has drawn well.
1.35PM Ladbrokes Multiverse Handicap 1400m
Predicted speed: Even
He was scratched through the week in favour for this. He’s third up off two close placings and can go one better here. He carried 61.5kg last start to finish only 1.5L off the winner. He should go very close here, Damian Lane goes on.
10. DANE THUNDER
He ran a strong third here over this trip a fortnight ago and comes back slightly in class in this. He will get back but if they can run on, he’s a solid each way chance.
3. MR GUSTAVO
He made ground late here last start when resuming finishing 3rd at big odds. If they are running on he is an each way chance again here stepping out to 1400m.
14. BALLET MASTER (NZ)
Forgiving his second up run when he got too far back, he’s going well this prep. He has been solid in his last two outings when stepping out to the 1400m and can go close with Zac Spain going on here. He has drawn well and should get the perfect trail just off the leaders.
2.10PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Exotics Handicap 1200m
Predicted speed: Even
She looks one of the better chances of the day off her stunning run here a fortnight ago. She sat near the tail of the field to win comfortably by 2L. Four out of her total 5 wins have been over 1200m and she meets a similar class in this. She looks hard to beat.
She ran well behind Rillito last start who she meets better at the weights in this after Zac Spain’s claim. She comes in a few barriers after scratchings and will be in front of Rillito through the run.
8. MAMZELLE TESS
She’s running well without winning. She has placed in 5 of her 7 starts at Caulfield. She wasn’t disgraced in Group 3 company two starts back finishing only 2L off the winner under SWP conditions. She was 6 weeks between runs before last start and should run her usual honest effort in this.
5. DIVINE QUALITY
Forgive her last start when she was running head on into the wind. Her four runs prior, all 2nds, were very good. She resumed this prep finishing 2nd behind Creativity here so we know she handles the track. She comes back to mares company and can go close.
2.50PM Ladbrokes Cash In Handicap 2000m
Predicted speed: Fast
He’s in hot form and can go on after his comfortably 3L victory over this trip here a fortnight ago after he drew wide. He has drawn wide in his last two outings and again in this! He’s fit, he should get a nice run and there’s no reason why he can’t win this as well.
He made ground late last start winning by a length. He gets weight relief and Craig Williams goes on. The 2000m looks no problem off that run.
13. JEDDAH AHEADAH
She ran soundly when coming up to city class last start. She stepped out to 2000m and held her ground. She stays under the limit and has drawn well again, she will be up near the speed.
3. MOUNT KILCOY
He looks smart and the 2000m looks perfect now off two solid 2nds over 1600m. He stays down in the weights and looks a strong chance.
3.30PM Ladbrokes Sir John Monash Stakes 1100m
Predicted Speed: Even
He’s unbeaten first up and loves Caulfield. He looked good in a recent winning jumpout and the glue on shoes coming off is a positive, as is Craig Williams being on.
1. VOODOO LAD
He has a fantastic record here and comes back in grade. He was a winner over this trip and track last prep with Brad Rawiller who partners with him for the first time since that race. He is unbeaten over 1100m from four starts.
2. CRYSTAL DREAMER
He has a good record here and runs well fresh. His last win was over 1100m here with Damian Lane on last December, and he takes the ride again here.
This is a step up but he’s in fantastic form and Jamie Mott is flying. He was a very good winner here last start with 63kg. He gets a bit of weight relief coming to WFA terms. He should get the perfect sit from the good draw.
4.10PM Ladbrokes Info Hub Handicap 1400m
Predicted speed: Even
3. AL PASSEM
I’ve noted him as my best each way of the day but I think the each way odds have been taken! He led the whole way here last start over this trip, after jumping from a wide draw, when second up getting out to a winnable distance. He has a fantastic record at Caulfield and the stable is in good form. He has drawn a lot better in this with barrier 2.
1. SUMMER SHAM
She was friendless last start drifting out after being favourite to start at almost double figure odds. She ran fairly and will be better for that. She is a Group 2 winner over 1400m here, she has the class.
13. STREETS OF AVALON
He ran well here last start when stepping out to 1400m and he is an each way chance again in this. He has drawn for a better run and Dwayne Dunn goes on.
9. STREET SHEIK
He finished a close 2nd over this trip here last start but probably should have won. He has placed in all five starts this prep and does look close to a win. He stays under the limit with Nathan Punch’s claim.
4.45PM Ladbrokes Cash Out Handicap 1400m
Predicted speed: Fast
He’s in flying form having won three of his last four outings. He has won here but it was in 2016, which is also when his other run here was. He’s building a solid 1400m record and gets a big drop in the weights in this going from 58kg last start to 51kg in this after Lachlan King’s claim.
1. WIDGEE TURF
He was a very strong winner over this trip here back in March and has been in good form since. He has drawn well and runs well at Caulfield. There looks to be enough speed in this to suit him.
He debuts here for the Weir stable and we know his success rate at turning horses around. He finished a close 2nd in Listed company over this trip first up last prep. He was only 2.4L off Santa Ana Lane in the Group 1 Rupert Clark here back in the Spring. Damian Lane goes on.
He’s third up off two good runs including a close 2nd here last start. He gets a bit of weight relief coming to open company and Craig Williams goes on.
