2014 Caulfield Guineas Betting Update

October 9th, 2014

A less-than capacity field of 14 three-year-olds has been confirmed for this weekend’s featured Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.

Having returned to racing in exceptional condition this season, classy colt Rich Enuff has opened as and firmed in favouritism in Caulfield Guineas betting markets, currently available at odds of $2.30 for success at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Finishing third in the Friends Of Epworth Handicap (1000m) on debut in March before immediately returning to the paddock, Rich Enuff returned to the track for a near-three length victory in the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) on August 23rd and has continued to impress via back-to-back victories in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Allocated barrier 10 and confirmed to be partnered by jockey Michael Rodd, punters may find value in adding Rich Enuff as a selection in a Caulfield Guineas trifecta or quinella bet.

While yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in Caulfield Guineas betting markets, classy Queenslander Looks Like The Cat has maintained position on the second line of betting and is currently available at generous odds of $6.50.

Yet to finish outside the places in six career starts, Looks Like The Cat jogged home to win a minor over 1200m by two lengths on debut in February before returning to the spelling paddock.

A notable performer over major two-year-old events through the 2014 Brisbane Winter Carnival, the Husson gelding finished second in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) first-up before running third in both the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) and Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m).

Having finished second in both the Danehill Stakes and Caulfield Guineas Prelude this time in, trainer Tony Gollan is confident the step-up to a mile will play directly into the strengths of Looks Like The Cat this weekend.

Arguably offering punters the best value for money at current $7.50 odds, Shooting To Win is also yet to receive much attention for success but will be partnered by newly crown Sydney Premiership jockey James McDonald and will leave from the central barrier 8.

Winning two minor events on debut in May and early June, Shooting To Win was less-than convincing when beating just one runner home in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) first-up this time in, but responded well in finishing second in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) and impressive third in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) on September 13th.

Returning to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) last time out, Shooting To Win is more than worth consideration for a Caulfield Guineas bet at current odds.
