Kermadec has returned to racing in slick form this time and while yet to contest a race over 2000m, remains clear $3 favourite in 2015 Caulfield Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Posting four wins and as many minors through eleven career starts so far, Kermadec returned this year for fourth in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) on February 7th; progressing to third in the talent-rich Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) before a luckless run for fourth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m).

Responding well when third amongst open company in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), the Teofilo entire capped his autumn preparation in the best way possible when breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Having quickly built to the task this time in finishing fifth in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) and second in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), Kermadec will carry winning form into the Caulfield Stakes after taking out the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) on September 19th.

Glen Boss returns to the saddle of the four-year-old, who will have to overcome the outside barrier to claim success.

Fawkner has returned to racing in typically slick form this time and offers exceptional value for money at 2015 Caulfield Stakes odds of $4.80 for success.

The winner of the 2013 edition of the Caulfield Cup, Fawkner returned to racing in prime condition in 2014; running second in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and winning the Caulfield Stakes before placing second in the Cox Plate.

Returning this time for success in the Makybe Diva Stakes before finishing an agonizingly-close second in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) a fortnight ago, the Reset gelding will be partnered by Craig Williams this weekend and will leave from the central barrier 4.

Pornichet has remained towards the head of Cox Plate betting since taking out the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) in early winter, and current figures at 2015 Caulfield Stakes odds of $6 after drawing the ideal barrier 3.

Requiring a few runs to find form upon resuming this year, the Vespone entire returned to the winner’s circle in the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) before finishing fifth in the Doncaster Mile.

Having savaged the line for third in the George Main Stakes last time, Pornichet will relish the return to 2000m and will be hard to beat with Blake Shinn aboard.

Three-time Group 1 champion Criterion will leave from barrier 7 and has so-far received the greatest share of attention from punters; cutting in from Caulfield Stakes odds of $12 to current rest at a quote of $7.50.
