2011 Caulfield Guineas Odds
Futures all-in betting showing top 24 horses.
Dominating the Caulfield Guineas 2011 odds at Australia’s leading online bookmaker Luxbet is the Anthony Cummings-trained Smart Missile, the undefeated colt leading the markets at $5.
Cummings also paid up for three of Smart Missile’s stablemates, most notabley Strike The Stars ($31 Luxbet) who ran a close-up third in open company behind Trusting and My Kingdom Of Fife in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Warwick Farm last Saturday.
Smart Missile is joined at the top of the 2011 Caulfield Guineas betting by Peter Snowden’s two time Group 1 winning colt Helmet.
By Exceed And Excel, Helmet is at a quote of $6.50 to take out the Caulfield Guineas this year and is one of the only first acceptors to have won over the mile thanks to their elite level victory in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick last season.
Helmet also won the Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) as a two-year-old and gets the chance to become a triple Group 1 hero and defeat Smart Missile when the duo face off in the 2011 Golden Rose Stakes in Sydney this Saturday.
Snowden, Darley’s No. 1 trainer, has four other Caulfield Guineas horses still in contention, the most notable of which is Ambidexter ($26 Luxbet) the Commands colt that won the Listed Ming Dynasty Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm last weekend.
Smart Missile and Helmet are the only Caulfield Guineas entries at currently at single figure odds to win, but following them in the markets for the prestigious classic are the likes of the Peter Moody-trained Moment Of Change ($13), David Hayes’ progressive Redoute’s Choice colt Cross Of Gold ($16) and last-start Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes winner Manawanui ($18) who is also racing in the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) this Saturday.
Meanwhile, Victorian Premiership winning trainer Peter Moody will be vying for back-to-back victories in the race following the success of his 2010 Caulfield Guineas winner Anacheeva.
Along with Moment Of Change, Moody has also paid up for Godspeed, Huegill, Highly Recommended and Golden Archer who won the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes last-start.
