2000m for the 3yos on Caulfield Cup day, and what a huge day of racing we have. Prospect of rain, rail in the true, big fields throughout. Think it might be a day for mid field horses with races on a softer track under their belt. Very tough job, but you wouldn’t think the Course would let it get to a Good 3 again, and hopefully some irrigation if the forecast changes. This race looks to have little speed, and many of these runners running well from back in the field, and many stepping out for the first time at this distance at Caulfield. Could create a bit of a log jam early to the first bend and for a 3yo that can cause havoc. Really like the look of Albarado in this race, and Zahra just feels trustworthy in a race like this. He looks to mid field, wind up early and really get rolling a while out. Celestial Sol the odds runner from the ratings, not long ago there were very high expectations of him. That’s what Waller does. The other strong chances are Cetchwayo if the run on horses are favoured, and an even track will see Let’s Karaka Deel have an advantage up front. I’m sticking with Albarado to give chase to Let’s Karaka Deel, with Waller’s Celestial Sol the value. The first few races will show us where you need to be to win. Hope you can get your day off to a good start, hit the board while you can!
