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.
