Caulfield Stakes 2011 – Betting Tips, Field & Form

October 7th, 2011

The scratching of high profile runner Whobegotyou from the 2011 Caulfield Stakes has opened up the betting markets considerably for the $400,000 race.

The Group 1 Caulfield Stakes is due to run at Racecourse tomorrow October 8, 2011, and Murray Baker’s Lion Tamer is currently favourite for the race at Luxbet.

Paying odds of $3.10, after originally opening at $3.80 at Luxbet, Lion Tamer will be out to mirror the success of his last start in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes last weekend.

The four-year-old won the Underwood Stakes by 1.3 lengths ahead of Southern Speed and Midas Touch.

Due to his perfect record at this track, as well as his recent top horse racing form, we are tipping Lion Tamer to win the Caulfield Stakes 2011.

For second we are tipping Jake Stephens’ Alcopop, who is paying odds of $6.50 at Luxbet.

The seven-year-old gelding was originally paying odds of $10 to win the 2011 Caulfield Stakes before Whobegotyou was scratched due to leg jarring, making him one of the biggest market movers in the field.

Alcopop finished an impressive second to Rekindled Interest in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley last start and we are confident he can do the same at Caulfield tomorrow.

The gelding will jump from barrier three in the 2011 Caulfield Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Dom Tourneur.

Finally, we have tipped Gai Waterhouse’s Descarado to round out the placings in third.

Last year’s Caulfield Cup winner has proven himself over the 2,000 metre distance, placing three out of four times.

The High Chaparral five-year-old has also won his only other run at this track.

Descarado is paying long odds of $17 to win the Caulfield Stakes 2011 at Luxbet due to his disappointing ninth place in the Shannon Stakes first-up.

However, Descarado is notorious for missing the placings in his first-up starts, but has only missed the first three on one occasion when second-up as he will be for tomorrow’s race.
