Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s Caulfield meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 11m entire circuit
STARRY LEGEND led them up and was much too good at Hillside two starts back then he was overran final stages. Back to the 1000m could be the winning move.
DEXELATION pulled up with thumps two starts back then he took on Group 3 in Adelaide last start and was not disgraced. Finds a winnable race here.
ZORRO’S DREAM just got a fraction too far back here last start but he made late ground and was beaten less than 2 lengths. If he can sit a bit closer he can get away with this.
Tip: STARRY LEGEND
Going to watch market moves on MCKEON. Trained by Peter Moody and ridden by one of best front running riders in Linda Meech and she can win this on debut.
JAMARRA only just missed here two starts back then finished too well winning on the heavy ground at Warrnambool last start. He can go on with it here.
MAGNASPIN chased home a smart one at Flemington on debut. He is sure to be better from that race experience and would not be surprised to see him right in the mix.
GENERAL FIREPOWER fought the race out tenaciously at Flemington last start and only just missed in driving finish. Expect he will lead these and he can go one better.
CHARTRES was too strong for them this track two starts back then he just got too far back in race dominated by leaders at Gosford. He can bounce back in this.
OCEANA BLUE caught the eye with a late finish at Hillside last start. Sure to be better from the outing and she will be right in the mix again.
Tip: GENERAL FIREPOWER
GENTILITY created a big impression with a dominant maiden win at Mornington on debut. Had a break since but looks smart and can win again.
THRONTARI resumes from spell. Raced consistently last time in work. Drawn touch wide but she could be one at odds for first four players.
FIRST DIVISION is another first-up from a break. She won his maiden in a canter at Bendigo when fresh last time in work and if she can overcome wide gate will be in the mix.
LA VINA is enormous odds in this. She was in the market in a similar race at Hillside first-up but just battled in the heavy ground. She will be better from the outing and want to have something each way.
DIAMONDS IN THE SKY resumes from a break. She was not beaten all that far in any of her five starts last time in work and she can run a cheeky race.
DANCE TO DUBAI was tough winning from the front at Caulfield first-up from a break. Strips fitter and she is the one they have to catch again.
Tip: LA VINA
SIG POSITANO looks ready to win. Comes into this third-up from a spell after two sound city placings. Has horror barrier but if he can find a position he can win this.
SACRED PALACE finished too well and got the prize at Terang two starts back then he pulled up lame in town last start. He can figure.
GALENUS did not miss by much when he came to the mainland last start. He finds a similar race and cannot leave him oy of multiples.
Tip: SIG POSITANO
GRANDSLAM jumped to the front and gave nothing else a chance winning here two starts back then he failed to handle the going at Warrnambool last start. He can bounce back in this.
WITCHACHAR STAR has been outstanding of late winning four of last five starts. Comes off last start Warrnambool Cup win and hard to leave him out again.
BERMADEZ was dominant at Warrnambool last start. He gets out to this distance for the first time and must be a query but Oliver aboard and cannot dismiss.
HOSIER slipped away and won with something in hand at Lakeside first-up. Looking for him to go forward again and he looks the one to beat.
VISINARI has come back in super form. Powered away and won by a big space at Pakenham then went to town and won with ease again. He looks well placed to be in mix.
THINK ‘N’ FLY was perfectly rated in front here two starts back then he went to Warrnambool and finished just out of placings. He can sneak a place in this.
AGREEABLE relished the heavy ground and finished too well to win at Hillside first-up from a break. She strips fitter and no reason she cannot win again.
GOOD AND PROPER resumes from spell. She took on Listed company here before going for a break. Has been placed fresh and must consider.
ZOIST won two straight in Adelaide then he was not beaten all that far at Morphettville last start. If he can bring that form across the border he will be in mix.
