Caulfield Guineas 2010 Betting Preview

October 7th, 2010

The 2010 Caulfield Guineas is coming up in just a few days time, set to run at 4:00PM on Saturday October 9.

Topping the early market odds is Ilovethiscity at $3.80 to win. Ilovethiscity will be starting from barrier 11 and is the winner of the Group 3 Spring Stakes, as well as having placed third in the Group 1 Golden Rose. The Spring Stakes win was over a 1600 metre distance, which may be why Ilovethiscity is getting favoured over Toorak Toff.

Toorak Toff is close behind in the odds, priced at $4.60 at SportsBet. From 10AM to 12PM on Friday, Toorak Toff will also be available for a shocking $6.00 to win (for bets up to $100) at IASbet as part of a [tooraktoffspecial]. The winner of the Golden Rose and second place finisher in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude, Toorak Toff is set to shine in this race starting from barrier 8. The only thing that might discourage a bet on this horse is his prior tendency to falter beyond the 1500 metre mark.

Anacheeva is also looking good, though, priced at $8.00 and starting from barrier 1. The win over Toorak Toff in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude certainly stands in this colt’s favour, though Anacheeva has yet to have a win beyond 1400 metres.
