2011 Caulfield Guineas Betting Post-Field Odds

October 6th, 2011

Following the release of the Caulfield Guineas 2011 field, bookmakers around Australia have re-opened betting on this Saturday’s feature with early favourite Helmet retaining their favouritism in the markets despite coming up with the ‘visitor’s draw’.

The best markets and betting offers for the $1 million Group 1 The Age Caulfield Guineas (1600m), scheduled to run as Caulfield Race 7 at 3:20pm (EDT) on Saturday, can be found at Luxbet with the Peter Snowden-trained Helmet the easing top elect.

Coming off an authoritative last-start win in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude, Helmet has drifted out from $2.50 to $2.70 to become a triple Group 1 winner and add the 2011 Caulfield Guineas title to their increasingly imposing record.

In one of the most open and highly-anticipated Caulfield Guineas showdowns in recent year’s three other contenders are at single-figure odds to win through Luxbet.

Following Helmet in the 2011 Caulfield Guineas Odds are:

  • #3 Smart Missile ($3.30 Luxbet) – Anthony Cummings’ talented but luckless colt drawn to perfection in gate two
  • #1 Manawanui ($5 Luxbet) – Golden Rose winner seeking their sixth consecutive victory, sees Melbourne and the mile for the first time but should get gun run from barrier three
  • #4 Chase The Rainbow ($7 out to $8 Luxbet) – Genuine grey galloper showed their class when winning the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley last Friday night

Further down the Caulfield Guineas betting markets for 2011 are:

#7 Huegill ($19 into $18 Luxbet) – Peter Moody’s chance to score successive Caulfield Guineas following Anacheeva’s win 12 months ago, untapped colt comes off a midweek Sandown win

  • #5 Specter ($18 out to $21 Luxbet) – Prelude third placegetter has defeated higher-rated Chase The Rainbow but mile may be out of their reach
  • #6 Secret Hills ($21 out to $31 Luxbet) – Second to Helmet in the Prelude so Mick Price’s son of Starcraft has form, but may not be improved enough to place in this field
  • #8 General Offer ($201 Luxbet) – Field filler, hasn’t seen greater than 1300m and only win from eight starts was a 1200m at Echuca as a juvenile
