Daily Racing Tips – Caulfield Guineas Day Special
Caulfield - Race 4 2:00pm AEDT
No. 1 Xilong
Xilong can make a winning return to the races in the Northwood Plume Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
The Deep Field mare is capable of a very high-rating performance on her day and her first-up record is nothing short of outstanding.
Barrier six is perfect and she will make her own luck with Luke Currie in the saddle.
Caulfield - Race 5 2:35pm AEDT
No. 1 Hey Doc
Hey Doc is the class horse in the Schillaci Stakes field and he is well and truly over the odds at his current price.
His first-up run in the Moir Stakes was only fair, but he will take good improvement from that run and the step-up to 1100 metres suits.
A number of the sprinters in this field are unproven at this level and he is the known commodity.
Royal Randwick - Race 6 4:10pm AEDT
No. 1 Alligator Blood
Alligator Blood can return to winning form in The Silver Eagle and he is deserving of his status as a dominant favourite.
His first-up run in Brisbane with a big weight was excellent and that gives him the perfect platform to improve second-up.
On his best form, he has a clear class edge over the rest of this field and he will go into The Golden Eagle as a deserving favourite.
Royal Randwick - Race 9 6:05pm AEDT
No. 11 Plaquette
Plaquette has been kept fresh since her impressive win at Randwick in August and she beat a host of classy gallopers to win a barrier trial at Hawkesbury at the end of September.
The Exceed And Excel mare still has a huge amount of upside and she will likely end up in stronger races than this one. She is outstanding value at her current price.
