After a couple of big weeks for the BetU followers, including getting the cash last night in "Honky"with Transcendent, our focus zeros in one of the best weekends of racing for the year in Australia, that being "Caulfield Guineas" day..

Jig has identified a big price outsider as his G1 Caulfield Guineas on top selection as well as some nice value on the support card that we can back now at the big overs on offer on fixed betting markets.

🏆 CAULFIELD, Race 8, G1 Caulfield Guineas,

1600m, $2,000,000

Terrific race as you'd expect with $2M on offer for the 3YO's. (Hell of a lot more at stake for the colts in the race/future stallion prospects/value 😳)

#1 ANOMOE is a serious colt and the best horse in the race for mine for the ever powerful Goldolphin stable.. The big negative for this boy is drawing barrier 15 (The Sheik of Dubai likely fell off his thrown when the 15 marble rolled out) 

He will have to go back to near last from this gate and hope for a genuine tempo up front, where I'm sure 'Ollie' will have one eye on checked on fellow back marker #2 ARTORIUS. 

ARTORIUS is a real talent, with a withering turn of foot at his disposal, but boy oh boy, he's a heart in the mouth job if you back him 😳🙈...  He just does so much wrong and while he draws a good gate, he will need a great steer from D Lane to ensure he doesn't have any speed humps to jump over late on!

He is a star ARTORIUS and will be hammering home late at them, but I'm happy to risk him in this at the short quote ($3.8)..

The one I'm keen on is #17 HITOTSU at a BIG BIG price here ($26).... He opened at around $45 in markets, so there has been early support for him and he could start much shorter come race day...

He draws ideally in gate 3 and will likely drift back worse than midfield early, but I can envisage him doing no work here and being ridden for luck between runners in the home straight..

HITOTSU may lack the class of both Artorius & Anomoe, but he will revel over the 1600m and he ran some astonishing races as a 2YO behind these horses, when his closing sectionals were very comparable to the two heavy weights in this... 

He has also had the key stable change this preparation going to the powerful Ciaron Maher stable and don't be surprised if this boy causes a big boilover come Saturday if the breaks go his way and the two favs run into traffic issues in the run 😉


🏆- #17 HITOTSU ew ($26)

🥈- #ANOMOE ($2.6)

🥉- #2 ARTORIUS ($4)

4️th - #4 ALPINE EDGE ($17)

🏆 CAULFIELD R9, G1 Toorak HCP,

1600m, $1,000,000

Another big G1 mile worth $1M to follow the Caulfield Guineas and I really like the talented #11 I'M THUNDERSTUCK in this down in the weights.

He should of bolted in last start when he was cleaned up on turning, but still managed to pick himself up, get back into stride and really launch late to go down narrowly in a race no harder than this. 

From barrier 4, with only 52kgs on his back, Jye McNeil will get all the favors here and with a genuine tempo ensured, this big flashy chestnut will be humming at them late on here and take a power of holding out! 

He's one of the best bets all day!!


🏆- #11 I'M THUNDERSTUCK win ($2.8)

🥈- #6 DICE ROLL ($11)

🥉 #2 SUPERSTORM ($13)

4️th - #14 EMBOLISM ($46)


Caulfield R1 no9 BRERETON ew ($3.8)

Caulfield R5 no4 SEPTEMBER RUN win ($3.4)

Caulfield R7 no1 BROOKLYN HUSTLE ew ($6.5)

Caulfield R9 no11 I'M THUNDERSTUCK win ($2.8)
