Caulfield Cup Day: Best Bets

Here are my tips for today’s racing:

Caulfield Cup:

Every thing seems to point to the favourite, Lucia Valentina, winning this race particularly over a good win in the Turnbull.  I am going to take on the favourite here and tip Lidari (Number 14) to win.  Here’s why:

  • Strong form over the distance when still racing in France.
  • Turnbull run was just fantastic given the amount of work the horse had to do and was only half a length away from besting Lucia Valentina there.
  • Has picked up an inside gate in this race and will be able to settle towards the front half of the field.
  • Meets Lucia Valentina 1.5kgs better from the Turnbull.

At $9 fixed price Lidari is the winner for me.

Value punters should also have a look at Stipulate (Number 13) which at $21 presents great each way value given his barrier draw and with not much weight on.

Best Bet: Lidari

Value Bet: Stipulate

Other Races

Caulfield: Race 1 Number 2 Azkadella

Randwick: Race 3 Number 3 Hero I Am

Doomben: Race 8 Number 5 I’m Usian

Good luck and good punting.

As always:

  1. Please gamble responsibly.
  2. All care is taken with these tips however no responsibility vests for losses incurred.

Quote of the Day

“Leadership is not magnetic personality that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people’–that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.” Peter F. Drucker
