  • 3rd: Ready For Victory

The first Caulfield Guineas took place back in 1881 when it was won by Wheatear. The race is regarded as one of the most important races for three-year-olds to win, and is renowned for being a stallion making race for colts. The Caulfield Guineas’ home track has always been Caulfield Racecourse; however the race was run at Flemington Racecourse for four years from 1940-1943. The Caulfield Guineas witnessed a dead heat in 1945 when the judge was unable to split Attley and Royal Gem.

The Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude is regarded as the best lead-up race to the Caulfield Guineas, with Anacheeva (2010) taking out the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and Caulfield Guineas double. Winners of the Caulfield Guineas do not often go on to perform well in races such as the Caulfield Cup or the Melbourne Cup, however, it is often a good guide to how the three-year-olds will perform in the upcoming Group 1 Cox Plate.

Notable winners of the Caulfield Guineas throughout the years include Heroic (1924), Ajax (1937), High Caste (1939), Tulloch (1957), Storm Queen (1966), Vain (1969), Surround (1976), Luskin Star (1977), Manikato (1978), Red Anchor (1984), Mahogany (1993), Redoute’s Choice (1999), Show A Heart (2000), Lonhro (2001), Weekend Hussler (2007), Whobegotyou (2008) and Starspangledbanner (2009), All Tooo Hard (2012) and Press Statement (2015).

2016 Caulfield Guineas Field

The Caulfield Guineas Field is only ever assembled of the very best three year olds in the country and it’s certainly not a race for horses which are unproven. It’s crucial that the runners have shown their true ability, not just promise before the Caulfield Guineas as any pretenders will be found out very quickly. The Mile is arguably the greatest test in horse racing, too long to be a sprint but too short to be a staying test, the perfect distance to uncover a true champion. Adding to this is the set weight factor, this means it’s down to class, desire and ability alone with every horse given its fair chance.

The Caulfield Guineas field is made up of 16 runners every year with four emergencies on standby. Given that nominations are received from all over the country there is always a top notch bunch of thoroughbreds lining up in the stalls in October. When they jump the prize at the end of the Caulfield trek is worth $1 million, further ensuring interest from the very best stables. Below you can see the final field for the 2016 Caulfield Guineas.

Caulfield Guineas Form Guide

The Caulfield Guineas Form Guide can often be a lot easier to read for punters then many other Group 1 events. While there are still a couple of avenues the horses can come through there is a main channel allowing people to get a good sight of the horse in similar company. The Caulfield Guineas is part of a series involving the Caulfield Guineas Preview and the Caulfield Guineas Prelude. For some horse these races are their only option to make the field while for others they could simply be good lead up tests. Either way the three-year-olds will race against many of the same horse they’ll then face in the main event.

Obviously the Caulfield Guineas Form Guide isn’t completely black and white though, some horse do use different earlier races and there are always a couple of unknowns lurking in the stalls . Having said that the 1600m around Caulfield with set weight makes it a genuine test and every horse should have their chance if good enough.

Caulfield Guineas Betting

Caulfield Guineas Betting is always extremely popular and online bookmakers say there is massive turnover on the race every year. The reason for this in part is due to the conditions of the race, punters can bet with confidence on the back of sound form lines leading into the event.  Handicap events by their very nature are made to try and even out the field so weight for age contests treat every horse in an equal nature. That means punters can look at the runners purely on their merits and make a decision based upon class, speed and preparation alone.

Having said this it’s also worth remembering just how talented the field is so Caulfield Guineas betting is certainly no sure fire winner. There are always a few genuine chances with a clear cut favourite not an overly common sight. Whichever way you look at it though the Caulfield Guineas is made for punters and there are few races that give you quite the same level of confidence.

Caulfield Guineas Odds

Given the nature of the race you can imagine that the Caulfield Guineas Odds are always going to be quite generous. With a field of horses that are representing the very top three year olds in the country there is no shortage of talent on offer. This means there are a range of genuine chances and as such a range of good betting options. Bookmakers battle to deliver the best markets on the Caulfield Guineas and this is always good news for you as a punter.

Every now and again there will be a superstar in the mix and this can still be a good thing if you’re placing a bet. For the favourite backers you can take solace in the fact the event suits horses with genuine class, if a horse truly is decidedly better than its opposition it will win the race. For those not keen to back the favourite the fact they are so short means you get even better Caulfield Guineas odd on the rest of the field.

Caulfield Guineas Tips
