Press Statement ($2.70) has remained clear favourite in 2015 Caulfield Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au this week and is a proven performer over the distance and at the grade, ahead of Ready For Victory ($8) and Kiwi raider Dal Cielo ($9.50).

Will Press Statement justify favouritism and win the 2015 Caulfield Guineas, or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?


Press Statement ($2.70)

Owing sheerly to his impressive performance at the distance previously, as well as good recent for, it is hard to see any horse beating Press Statement in the 2015 Caulfield Guineas. Capping a standout debut preparation with success over a talented field in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Doomben on June 6th, the Hinchinbrook colt returned this time for second in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m), and while unable to overcome a horror run in transit when fifth in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m), responded in the best way possible with a resounding win in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) a fortnight ago. Hugh Bowman will take the ride on the colt, who will need a little luck in running from a wide draw.


Bon Aurum ($14)

Bon Aurum has found form at the exact right moment for the 2015 Caulfield Guineas, has been confirmed to be partnered by Kerrin McEvoy and offers sensational value at current $14 odds for success or $4.20 for a first three finish. Finishing outside the first three only once in six career starts, the Bon Hoffa colt ran third in a Flemington minor over 1400m on August 8th; progressing to second in a Sandown 1200m sprint before taking out each of the Listed Pin & Win Stakes (1400m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) most recently.


Lizard Island ($26)

Lizard Island has performed well in a number of key form races, particularly the Pin & Win Stakes (2nd) leading into the 2015 Caulfield Guineas and is positioned well in barrier 2 for a big performance on Saturday with Blake Shinn in the saddle. Posting one win and four minors through six career starts so far, the Sebring colt ran third in the #willhillwolfpack Plate BM64 (1200m) on August 26th; progressing to his impressive performance in the Pin & Win Stakes (1400m) before delivering a handy field a three length defeat in the Evergreen Charity Raceday Maiden (1600m) on September 23rd.
