Victorian pro-punter Trevor Lawson brings you his Caulfield Quaddie tips for Saturday’s meeting.
Race 6 – Ladbrokes Showdown (1200m)
Selections: 2, 5, 8
Prince Of Sussex (2) had a terrific win at Bendigo when eased down to the line. Can step off that here. Groot (5) ran well on debut, then wasn’t completely suited in the Prince Of Sussex race. Can improve here. Sartorial Splendor (8) had a terrific win in fast time on debut at Terang.
Race 7 – VOBIS Gold Heath (2000m)
Selections: 1, 8
Mahamedeis (1) put in a good effort third-up over 1600m. Steps to right trip now, can improve and should be ready to run to best. Mr Quickie (8) steps to 2000m here which should be looking for. The one to beat.
Race 8 – VOBIS Gold Mile (1600m)
Selections: 1, 2
Widgee Turf (1) is pitched in at the handicap here. Slight distance query at this trip but is a consistent, honest horse that’s very well graded. Waging War (2) was good first-up, then carried plenty of ground second-up. Gets senior rider on and can bounce back. Think Bleue (9) ran well third-up. Should be able to hold rating here.
Race 9 – VOBIS Gold Sprint (1200m)
Selections: 1, 3, 10
Ashlor (1) had a good win two starts back. Slightly disappointing on paper last start but may not have been suited. Jockey has winning ways on this horse. Iconoclasm (3) is an ex-Weir runner, first-up here for new trainer. Trialled nicely, Williams booked looks a positive sign. Miss Leonidas (10) showed what she can do last start when her mind is on the job. Has to be taken on trust. One to beat if repeats rating.
