Early 2010 Caulfield Guineas Prelude Preview

August 16th, 2010

This year the 2010 Caulfield Guineas Prelude is set to take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday September 18 as part of the celebrations of Underwood Stakes Day.

The $175,000 Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) is one of six top group status races held at the meeting.

The day’s race card is headlined by the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes and the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m), giving punters the first chance to bet on a Group 1 race during the spring season.

The 2010 Caulfield Guineas Prelude will be the best guide for punters looking to get a heads up in the Ladbrokes.com.au betting markets open on the esteemed $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 9, as it is the traditional lead-up race for the Guineas.

Earlier during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival there are a number of similar feature races that the colts and geldings on way to a Caulfield Guineas stint may contest including the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 28 and the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on September 4.

Watching for the dominant colts and geldings in these earlier three-year-old races is a great way to give you confidence before betting on your favourites for the 2010 Caulfield Guineas Prelude through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Horses likely to be amongst the 2010 Caulfield Guineas Prelude entries include Gerald Ryan’s classy colt Hinchinbrook, Blue Diamond Stakes winner Star Witness and in-form local colt Toorak Toff.
