Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas 2019

Saturday October 12, 2019

Ladbrokes Tip: The Prelude is the best guide to Caulfield Guineas betting each October

The $2 million Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas is one of Australia’s premier racing event for three-year-old colts and geldings and is rated one of the country’s most important stallion-making events. The Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas is held over 1600 metres at the Caulfield Racecourse a week before the Caulfield Cup and is one of the most highly anticipated races during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. The Group 1 event always draws the cream of the crop and has been won by the likes of Ajax, Hydrogen, Tulloch, Storm Queen, Vain, Surround, Luskin Star, Manikato, Red Anchor, Mahogany, Redoute’s Choice, Lonhro, Weekend Hussler and All Too Hard.

In a bid to draw some of the attention away from the punting purists’ Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day action, in Sydney Racing NSW ran the richest turf race in the world for the first time on the same day in 2017 – The Everest Randwick race now worth a record $14 million for the 2019 edition. The Everest Day now takes place a week later on Caulfield Cup Day with Sydney hosting the $1 million Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) on Melbourne’s Guineas Day instead.

This year the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas ran on Saturday October 12, 2019 and saw Super Seth flash home late for the win.

Caulfield Guineas Odds

The Caulfield Guineas is always an interesting betting race, but most years there is a standout colt or gelding that starts the race as a fairly short-priced favourite. However, from 1983 – 2019 only 12 favourites have won the Caulfield Guineas and the likes of Rich Enuff (2014), Pierro (2012) and Encosta De Lago (1996) were beaten as odds-on favourites.

The last favourite in Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas betting to salute for the punters was another odds-on favourite, The Autumn Sun ($1.75 in 2017).

There have not been a great deal of upsets in the history of the Caulfield Guineas but Econsul (2004), In Top Swing (2003), Centro (1990), Procol Harum (1989), Marwong (1987) and Abaridy (1986) all won the race at lengthy quotes. That was until the 2017 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas results, when $101 roughie Mighty Boss saluted at triple figures.

Gallopers may come into the Caulfield Guineas field via a number of different spring lead-ups, but the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) run a fortnight earlier is the traditional lead-up run. Recent winners of the Prelude – Caulfield Guineas double include Anacheeva (2010) and Helmet (2011).

The 2018 Caulfield Guineas field attracted a quality line up, led by Chris Waller’s Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes winner The Autumn Sun and Darren Weir’s Caulfield Guineas Prelude winner Native Soldier. It was The Autumn Sun who dominated in the end, saluting as the odds-on favourite by 4.5 lengths!

Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Tips

The Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas is the feature race on the opening day of the Caulfield Carnival and because of this the majority of racing experts have a set of Caulfield Guineas tips every year. The majority of horses that contest the Caulfield Guineas come through a similar form line, but this does not necessarily make it easy to pick the winner.

Good Caulfield Guineas betting tips include looking for the colts and geldings that ran well in key lead-up races including the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and the Stan Fox Stakes. From 2014-19 three of the Caulfield Guineas winners had their final lead-up in the Stan Fox Stakes including Shooting To Win (2014) and Press Statement (2015) who both completed the double. In 2018 The Autumn Sun ran third in the Stan Fox Stakes ahead of Caulfield Guineas win, but also won Rosehill’s Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes in between.

2019 Caulfield Guineas Tips

Our insider Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas 2019 betting tips and Group 1 racing selections will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the gallopers to back and sack in the $2 million classic.

Caulfield Guineas Form Guide

The Caulfield Guineas form guide is a hot commodity in the lead-up to the Group 1 event and is essential reading in order to pick the winner of the race. The Caulfield Guineas Prelude is the major lead-up race for the Caulfield Guineas and it has produced plenty of winners over the past decade, but the Stutt Stakes as well as the Stan Fox Stakes and George Main Stakes in Sydney have also been key form references in recent years. No winner of the Caulfield Guineas since 2004 had finished worse than fourth in their final lead-up race until Super Seth (2019) improved on a lead-up fifth in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude results to win the Group 1.

  • No horse since Econsul (Stan Fox Stakes 6th in 2004) had finished worse than fourth before winning the Caulfield Guineas until Super Seth (Prelude 5th in 2019)
