This meeting is normally held at Sandown racecourse but has been transferred to Caulfield this year to allow for a $3.2 million upgrade to the Sandown track over the summer period.
Last start VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Precedence, trained by Bart & James Cummings, is the ruling $3.50 favourite for the $350,000 Group 2 Zipping Classic (2400m) at leading online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Next in betting is Sertorious $3.90 and Queenstown $4.80 while the value could be with the Sam Kavanagh trained Midsummer Sun at $10.
Other feature races on the final day of group racing for the Melbourne spring include the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) and the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m).

Racing Zone’s resident tipster Tony Edser expects recent Moonee Valley Cup winner Precedence to prove too classy for his rivals in the Zipping Classic and the Cummings’s trained stayer is his ‘Chips In’ Best Bet for the day.
Tony says: “Hard to knock him after winning the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup on Cox Plate day over 2500m before fighting out the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes last Saturday over 2600m at Flemington. Meets his main rival Sertorius 3.5kg better off at the weights from the Queen Elizabeth and class will prevail.”
