Racing is at Caulfield on Saturday August 17 for a nine-race programme that features the Peter Lawrence Stakes (1400m). 

We have looked through the fields and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way. 

Race 1 - 12:15PM MRC Foundation Supports Legacy Handicap (1100 METRES)
We open up with a BenchMark 78 and TONY NICCONI can make his presence felt at nice odds. The Hayes & Dabernig-trained galloper has had some mixed results in his five starts since taking out the Vain Stakes (1200m) on this day last year, but does look suited in this. He showed improvement when second up at Randwick recently, punching hard to lead and holding on for 4th in what was a solidly run race and he gets back to his favoured track on Saturday. The dryer surface should also play into his hands, while the 2kg claim for Lachlan King is another bonus. The four-year-old is likely to again push forward and should be right in the thick of things at the business end. 

Race 6 - 3:20PM BECK Probuild Quezette Stakes (1100 METRES)
The fillies line up in what looks to be a quality edition of the Quezette Stakes and it is ABSOLUTE FLIRT that enjoys a fitness edge on some of the big names here. The Danny O'Brien-trained galloper showed promise in the autumn, taking on some of the second tier races for her age group in Adelaide and was a Listed winner before tiring late at Group 3 level in May. She has since resumed with a 3rd placing at Moonee Valley and in that race she was unlucky not to finish closer to the eventual winner, Taraayef. She has drawn wide here but if she can cross over without burning too much fuel early on she can surprise her rivals. 

Race 7 - 4:00PM Regal Roller Stakes (1200 METRES)
A handy field of sprinters are set to tackle the Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and the consistent ANTAH can go close to taking this out. The lightly raced seven-year-old has won or placed in each of his past eight runs and came over from Tasmania at the end of last year before working through the grades this autumn to register wins at Caulfield and Bendigo. He was rock solid before the break, scorching to a big win in a 'metropolitan' meeting at Bendigo on Saturday March 30, taking over to defeat Simply Invincible by three lengths over the 1400m. His form at the distance reads as two wins from four starts. A firmer in the early betting, he has also performed well when first up in the past.
