Caulfield horse racing tips
Rail out 9m normally favours on-pacers, but the track should play even. The Northerly wind means you normally need cover down the side and into the straight.
Race 6 (1200m – Open HCP – Listed Race)

Arguably should have won 1st up. Then rated slightly down 2nd up at Moonee Valley. Should be able to bounce back to 1st up rating and be on track for an Everest run.
