It’s Caulfield Guineas day in Melbourne tomorrow and that means the biggest month of the racing year is about to get underway, culminating in the running of the 2013 Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November.
The highlight of a massive ten race meeting at Caulfield is the $1,000,000 Group 1 Caulfield Guineas for three-year-old gallopers and is always one of the most exciting races of the Melbourne Racing Club’s three-day spring carnival.
Consistent Peter Snowden galloper Long John is the punter’s elect for the 2013 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au with Prince Harada and El Roca next in betting at $5.00 and $7.50 respectively.
Plenty of interest surrounds the return of champion mare Atlantic Jewel in the $400,000 Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) and she is a raging $1.40 favourite at the moment.
Australian Cup winner Super Cool $5.00 looks to be her main danger and he will be coming strongly in the final 200 metres.
If there are any chinks in the armour of the Mark Kavanagh trained mare, then Super Cool will be the one to find them
The final group 1 event at Caulfield is the $400,000 Toorak Handicap (1600m) and has assembled a very competitive field where value can be found everywhere.
Robert Heathcote sprinter and last year’s winner Solzhenitsyn is the $5.00 favourite for the 2013 Toorak Handicap with Linton $7.00 and Speediness $8.50 next in betting.
On what should be a fantastic day of racing with 7 group races on the card, Caulfield Guineas day sets up a tantalising month of thoroughbred feature racing action at its absolute best.

Racing Zone’s resident tipster Tony Edser is very bouyant about the chances of classy mare Atlantic Jewel returning to the winners list in the 2013 Caulfield Stakes tomorrow at Caulfield and is his ‘Chips In’ Best Bet for the day.
Tony’s best each-way bet for Caulfield tomorrow is Kesampour in Race 8 on the card.
Tony says: “After failing to run down Mr O’Ceirin in a race that was 13 lengths slower than usual, Kesampour is perfectly placed here. Third up from a spell, only needing to carry 54.5 kg from barrier 2, I think Luke Nolen and Peter Moody will be in the money.”
Best Each-Way Bet : Caulfield R8 #4 Kesampour
