Caulfield Race 2 - Hi Stranger - $2.45
The way the race maps it looks as though Hi Stranger will sit off the back of No Effort and pull out at about the 150m mark and prove hard to stop.
The race doesn’t have much in the way of depth and the short price is justified given the geldings win last time out at Moonee Valley when he beat no effort on that occasion by 1.5 lengths.
Back Hi Stranger to win
Caulfield Race 5 - Elephant - $3.70
Elephant arrives in Australia with a big reputation as well as an unbeaten record across the ditch in New Zealand. He’s a little untapped but has put away fields impressively on home turf.
His front running style and the barrier 2 draw means if he’s good enough he gets all the favours. Will roll along in front with Imperial Lad and should be too good for these.
Back Elephant to win
Caulfield Race 6 - Ingratiating - $3.80
On this occasion we’re going with the Sydney form and that of Godolphin 3yo Ingratiating who had been going well without winning during his last prep.
Form reads well, finishing 3rd in the Golden Slipper when slowly away. Finished 2.25 lengths by Enthaar who dominated fields last season and looks to have a bit more than most of these.
Back Ingratiating to win
