Best bets at Caulfield & Warwick Farm nice and early
I’m expecting another very fair surface at Caulfield with dry weather all week, whilst at The Farm the leaders will have a small advantage due to the small track but I’m sure it’ll play pretty fair as well.
If you’d like to read my full set of Saturday selections for Warwick Farm and Caulfield, get them here.
Race 5 #14 Ballistica
Looks an absolute beauty, her two trial wins have been outstanding. Bjorn Baker has a fair wrap on this youngster and it’s easy to see why. Watch for her late. $4.60
Race 8 #4 Show a Star
Was great leading all the way for us two weeks ago. He has four wins and a second from eight starts over this trip and drops 3kgs here. A solid third-up record means he has to be respected. $2.60
Race 1 #7 Downhearted
Was very unlucky last start when he was held up at a vital time and chased hard once the gap opened. Drops 7.5kgs here and will appreciate the extra trip. Should go close. $4.50
Race 5 #1 Shoals
Is a beauty and she’s unbeaten first-up. She’s three-from-three over the distance and has never finished worse than second in seven starts with five wins. Will be hard to get past. $3.40
