Roughies Tips October 16
- 3 big priced runners to back
Looking for roughies tips to back at big prices on Saturday? We pick out the best four roughies to back each week.
Group 1 racing is at both Caulfield on Saturday October 16, while Randwick has their Everest meeting
We have looked through fields and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way.
Caulfield Race 5 - 2:35PM Neds Classic (2000 METRES)
In a heartbeat it is RESET THE JAZZ ($26 with bet365) that has been backed from $51 to $18 in some markets in a matter of hours on Wednesday after markets opened. He steps out in the Neds Classic. There are plenty of unknowns with the three-year-olds as they stretch out over the 2000m for the first time but I really liked the way this guy savaged the line at Bendigo in Maiden company on October 3. That came over the 1600m on the Heavy and he overcame trouble in the run before getting up late. Slight question marks on the form with the Kiwi galloper, Daario, battling at Kyneton last Tuesday but he might be a bit untapped, while the son of Reset should enjoy the step up to the 2000m.
Caulfield Race 7 - 3:45PM Lexus Tristarc Stakes (1400 METRES)
After we just missed out on PRIDE OF JENNI ($11 with bet365) at massive odds last time, we are back for another crack. The Symon Wilde-trained galloper went around at $67 at Flemington on Turnbull Stakes day, leaving some big names in her wake in the Rose Of Kingston Stakes (1410m) before being run down in the shadows by Still A Star. The daughter of Pride Of Dubai bumps into the likes of Colette this time around but did it at both ends at Flemington, going 12.4 lengths faster than standard. Only Colette has produced something better when going 12.9 lengths faster than standard, claiming the Adrian Knox Quality (2000m) as a three-year-old last year. Pride Of Jenni gets into this with the 55kg and loves the wet. Stick with her.
Caulfield Race 8 - 4:30PM Carlton Draught Alinghi Stakes (1100 METRES)
Race 8 at Caulfield sees the mares in action and PAUL’S REGRET ($31 with Sportsbet) can go close at nice odds. The five-year-old tends to mix her form but has produced some excellent performances here in the past. She battled behind Probabeel on August 28 but comes in third up and off a seven week freshen up. That blueprint worked well in the autumn when runner-up to Probabeel in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield. The winner out of that then went on to claim the Futurity Stakes (1400m) at her next run. In her other run at Caulfield this year, Paul’s Regret was runner-up behind Laverod off a seven-week break in the VOBIS Gold Sprint. She has performed well on wet tracks in the past and should find cover early on in the big field from barrier 8.
