8/2/20 Caulfield Tips and best bets on CF Orr Stakes Day

Feature race previews and best bets

Group 1 racing returns this weekend, as C F Orr Stakes Day at Caulfield gives punters a plethora of stakes events to chew on.   

The track is currently rated a Good 4, with fine weather forecast for the remainder of the week.

With the rail in the true position, the track looks set to play fair. 


Below are Mark's 3 best bets for Saturday's Caulfield meet.

Race 4 Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) 1100M

Rulership (5) will set a cracking pace here, whilst Jabali Ridge (8), Tagaloa (7) and Valaquenta (3) will take a sit behind him.

I would've like to have seen Hanseatic draw a little wider than barrier two here, however this colt looks like something special.

He should be able to take a sit and with his enormous turn of foot, I expect him to prove too good.

Rulership was impressive when winning on debut in Sydney over 1000m. Look for him to lead them up and give them something to catch. 

If he gets an easy time in front, he can certainly win.

Rathlin was the widest runner in the Magic Millions, but only went down by 2.6 lengths to subsequent winner Away Game.

Jumping from barrier four, expect him to sit mid-field, follow Hanseactic home and be in the finish.

Horse Racing Tip  Mark's Race 4 Tips

1st Hanseatic

2nd Rulership

3rd Rathlin


Race 5 Group 2 Autumn Stakes (3YO, SW +P) 1400m

The Holy One (6) and Banquo (3) should push forward, with Microphone (2) and Lady Lupino (10) likely to sit behind them.

Microphone is the class runner, is back to racing against his own age group and will find this a far easier assignment than previous runs.

His run in the Australia Stakes where he finished off well behind winner Scales of Justice, was full of merit.

From barrier two, Damian Lane will go forward and have options to lead or take the sit. From there, I expect him to prove too classy.

Banquo ran into a hot Alabama Express first-up at Flemington, finishing third by 2.1 lengths. I like the way he went through his gears in that run and out to the 1400m here should suit.

The Holy One was good winning at the Valley last start at Group 2 level, but had a picnic out in front. He won't get it as easy out in front here, but can place.

Race 8 Group 1 C F Orr Stakes 1400m

Begood Toya Mother (6) and Hey Doc (5) will contest the lead here, whilst you can expect Scales of Justice (7) and Alabama Express (12) to settle one pair back.

I can't go past Scales of Justice. His first-up win in the Australia Stakes at the Valley was superb and the 1400m here will suit him even better.

With the solid pace up-front, he can sit handy and then use his exceptional acceleration to go straight past the leaders.

I expect a big run from Fierce Impact. He will sit mid-field and can rattle home down the outside.

With a proven record at Caulfield, he can definitely place.

Ringerdingding has drawn poorly in barrier one. His first-up run in the Australia Stakes behind Scales of Justice was incredible and if he gets the breaks along the rails, he will finish very close to the winner.

Horse Racing Tip  Mark's Race 8 Tips

1st Scales of Justice

2nd Fierce Impact

3rd Ringerdingding
