#1 Helmet ($2.50 out to $3.10 Luxbet)

  • Market Firmer
  • To be ridden by Luke Nolen who was aboard last year’s Caulfield Guineas Prelude winner Anacheeva

#Chase The Rainbow ($5.50 Luxbet)

  • Drawn ideally in barrier two
  • Comes off a close last-start second behind Specter over the distance (1400m) at Flemington on September 3

#10 That’s The One ($8.50 out to $9.50 Luxbet)

  • Only undefeated runner in the field with a 100% Win Rate (two wins from two starts)
  • Has won over the distance (at Flemington on August 6 from horror barrier 12 of 12 draw)

While these are the top fancies, Luxbet punters will discover by looking at the Caulfield Guineas Prelude 2011 form guide that a number of the double-figure chances on Saturday have genuine claims to finish in the money including:
