Caulfield – Saturday July 29 – Previews, Best Bets and Tips

Fri, Jul 28, 11:36am by Senior Writer

The horse once rated the world’s best sprinter, Lankan Rupee, is the headline act for Saturday’s meeting at Caulfield.

The five-time Group 1 winner fronts up in the Bletchingly Stakes as we edge out way toward the spring.

But we fancy an upset in the main race, and are happy to look for value outside the two favourites.

But more of that later. After landing our Best Bet last week, we are looking to go back-to-back

Or Best this week is Race 7 No.3 Revolving Door. This guy has had a great campaign, winning one and running second in his two other runs. Last time out he was a massive run, sitting very deep on the course, giving a kick and only being gunned down late.

He gets an inside barrier this time around, so you’d think he’d get a much better run. He is also better off at the weights than the horse who beat him last time, Nikitas, who is drawn wide in this race.

It all shapes as a very winnable race for Revolving Door, who is around the $2.35 mark and he’s the clear best on what is a good day of racing.

As mentioned earlier, my best value comes up in that race, but it’s not the former champ. Instead, it’s Race 8 No.2 Keen Array.

I just keep looking at this guy’s form and keep wondering how he is $12 for this race. He has a brilliant record at the Caulfield 1200m, having won three races from as many starts, including two impressive wins last Spring.

There are a couple of talented sprinters here in Supido and Lankan Rupee, but Keen Array’s form in the past 12 months is as least as strong as theirs.

The two queries are that he is first-up over 1200m and that he didn’t come up in the autumn where they abandoned his campaign before he had a run. My answer to those queries is that he was very good first-up last time at 1200m, running second to a G1 competitive horse at Moonee Valley.

And I trust David Hayes to have this guy right for the spring. He jumped him out at Flemington a couple of weeks ago, and he looked comfortable, sitting back and working home comfortably for third.

I go back to that price, $12. And the $3.80 a place is also appealing.

This will be my last racing column for It’s been a pleasure doing this column over the past 12 months and I hope I’ve found you a few winners along the way.
