Roughies Tips - 3 roughies to back at Caulfield on Saturday September 21

Bella Martini can cause an upset at Caulfield on Saturday

Racing is at Caulfield on Saturday September 21 for the running of the Group 1 Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) and there are nine races on the programme. 

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

Race 3 - 1:45PM Living Legends Plate (1000 METRES)
Race 3 at Caulfield pits the three-year-olds up against one another and a solid contender at the double figure odds is LUCIFER'S REWARD. The Brendan McCarty-trained galloper sticks to the 1000m and resumed with a big win in easier grade at Sandown on September 9. He rises in grade but was competitive behind the likes of Super Seth at his last preparation and will get a very nice trail into the race from barrier 3. He has won two of three over the trip and there are question marks over a few of the favoured runners in this that are either resuming or slightly unproven. The $19 represents value. 

Race 5 - 2:55PM Ladbrokes How Now Stakes (1200 METRES)
Pippie is set to line up as favourite in the How Now Stakes and has been able to dictate terms at her past two. The four-year-old will be hard to beat but might find some stiff opposition in the form of BELLA MARTINI. The Hawkes galloper has some good form at the highest level and resumes after finishing 3rd behind Spright in the Sangster Stakes (1200m) in the autumn. She is yet to win in five fresh runs but it should be noted she was a tad unlucky in the past two of those when finishing 4th to Alassio in the Triscay Stakes (1200m) earlier this year and in the same position behind Osborne Bulls in the Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) last year. She gets in well at the set weights and penalties conditions of the race and should get a nice run from the favourable draw. She can be a factor. 

Race 7 - 4:15PM Ladbrokes Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400 METRES)
The feature of the day is the Rupert Clarke Stakes and BEST OF DAYS can go close to taking this one out. The Godolphin galloper carts topweight of 58kg and will be out to emulate Jungle Cat, who won with that weight for the stable last year. The six-year-old concedes to the likes of Begood Toya Mother but he does represent a bit of class and a key to his chances is that he is third up. He really begun to peak at this stage of his preparation in the spring and was solid to the line when 3rd behind Homesman in the recent Feehan Stakes (1600m). He will get back from the draw but there looks to be plenty of pace in the race for him to launch at them late.
