RACE 1 - 12:20PM SUREWISE VOBIS GOLD HEATH (2000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 2 MAHAMADEIS $2.30 Bet Now!
Looking for an early winner on the Caulfield programme and it is MAHAMADEIS that ticks plenty of boxes in the opener. The Nick Ryan-trained galloper is set to start at short odds but comes off a 3rd behind Hang Man and Persan at the track and trip on April 3 at Group 3 level in the Easter Cup (2000m). That form is red-hot for this. That was the fourth run of his current preparation and he went 14.5 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is 13 lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner. At the same stage last year he improved three lengths on figures when defeating Pacodali and Hang Man at the track and trip so he should be right at his peak with Luke Currie in the saddle.
Race 4 - 2:05PM IRT VOBIS GOLD MILE (1600 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 1 MR QUICKIE $2.30 Bet Now!
MR QUICKIE can chalk up another win when he lines up in Race 4 of the day at Caulfield. The multiple Group 1 winner has had three runs this preparation and was doing his best work late when 3rd behind the likes of Probabeel and Arcadia Queen in the Futurity Stakes (1400m) when resuming at Caulfield. Like a number at Moonee Valley, he struggled in the Soft going in the All-Star Mile before arriving in time to take out the Victoria Handicap (1400m) ahead of Still A Star on April 3 with that race again coming at Caulfield. He settled back in the big field that day after drawing the carpark before coming out very wide on the turn and exerting authority late in the piece. The son of Shamus Award went 10.3 lengths faster than standard benchmark and has consistently produced similar or better figures in the majority of his recent runs. He has an excellent record at Caulfield and took out the Toorak Handicap (1600m) with a big weight last year so the 61kg shouldn’t be a concern, while the small field should also suit. A winner of 11 of 28, he is a clear top pick in this race.
RACE 7 - 4:05PM WIDDEN VICTORIA BEL ESPRIT STAKES (1100 METRES)
Best Value💰No. 5 SWORD OF MERCY $5.50 Bet Now!
SWORD OF MERCY shapes as a major player in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes. The consistent mare from the Ellerton and Zahra camp will give us a contest here and is another that doesn’t mind the Caulfield track. She held off a couple of smart ones in the form of Diamond Effort and Alfa Oro at her latest, which was over the 1000m and was excellent in the Oakleigh Plate (1100m) when 6th in a blanket finish behind the dead-heaters, Celebrity Queen and Portland Sky, while she had excuses prior to that in the Rubiton Stakes (1100m). She went 11.5 lengths faster than standard in her recent run, which are the best last start figures of any runner and from barrier 4, the daughter of Sebring should enjoy the run of the race with Damian Lane on board.
