Caulfield Saturday April 14 – Preview, Odds and Best Bet

Fri, Apr 13, 8:03am by Staff Writer

Racing is at Caulfield on Saturday with the rail out nine-metres and the track in the good range.

Race five – the Listed Galilee Series Final (2400m) for three-year-olds – is the only black-type race of the day, with a capacity field of 16 plus one emergency accepted to race. Melbourne’s big stables have come to the fore with the Hayes/Dabernig team to saddle up four runners, the Darren Weir stable with three although Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott have the favourite in Han Xin ($2.80). Four of his six career starts have been in Victoria and he’s won two of those, his most recent by four and three-quarter lengths here at Caulfield over 2000m. Alpha ($11) was runner-up on that occasion at only his third career start, having narrowly won his maiden at his debut run.

Creedence ($12) was third to Han Xin and Alpha, and he tops the market for the Hayes/Daberning quartet. Goegan’s Hero ($11) is in fair form of late with a win and two minors coming from her last four starts while Rezealient ($34) and Won Won Two ($81) are given little chance according to betting.

Petite ($11) is a Godolphin filly with one win and three minors to her name and she comes off a last start failure when fifth of nine at Gosford after being sent out an odds-on favourite while All Hard Wood ($9) was well fancied when third to So You Leica at Moe last start.

Wolfendale ($15) – for Weir – carries equal top weight of 57kg alongside the race favourite and he comes into this after finishing last to Han Xin last start but he was a Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) winner three starts back, with three wins and two minors from seven career starts. High Energy ($51) has the one win from his five starts, Maheera ($13) also has the one win – which was at her last start, her fourteenth start overall.

Race six in an open handicap over 2000m with Godolphin’s Spectroscope ($3.60) carrying top weight of 60kg although he does get a two-kilo claim. He burst onto the scene (in Australia) during the early autumn last year with two wins from his first two starts before being sent out as a 7-1 chance in the G1 Doncaster (1600m) when finishing midfield. He hasn’t really fired a shot since but if he does capture that form, he’ll give a good account of himself.

Berisha ($4.80) has run in some good races during his career but his Yarra Valley Cup (1950m) win was his first in over two years. Grey Lion ($9) is resuming here after a solid spring and although he didn’t crack it for a win, he has won three from seven when fresh. Golden Mane ($5) is racing well with a win and three minors from his last five starts whilst Velox ($5.50) is a last start winner but also accepted to run in race one at Adelaide.

Suggested Bet: Palazzo Vecchio ($2.50, race 3, number 1) is down in grade after being more than competitive in her three black-type runs this campaign. She gets a two-kilo claim to offset her top weight and with that, she’s relatively well in above the limit. Drawn well, she looks hard to beat.
