Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas 2017

Mid October 2017

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

The Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas is 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 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 will run the richest turf race in the world for the first time on the same day in 2017 – The Everest Randwick race worth $10 million!

This year the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas will be run on Mid October 2017.

Caulfield Guineas Field

The Caulfield Guineas field is released on the Tuesday morning before the race and features a capacity field of 16 runners plus four emergencies. The Caulfield Guineas has not had a capacity field since Anacheeva beat 15 rivals to win the 2010 edition of the race, while only eight horses contested the race in both 2011 and 2012. The Caulfield Guineas is run under set weights conditions and every runner in the field carries 56.5 kilograms.

Caulfield Guineas Betting & 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, only ten favourites have won the Caulfield Guineas in the past thirty years and the likes of Rich Enuff (2014), Pierro (2012) and Encosta De Lago (1996) were beaten as odds-on favourites. 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.

Caulfield Guineas Tips

The 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.

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 four of the past six winners of the race, 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 has finished worse than fourth in their final lead-up race.
