free tips for the Caulfield Cup 2010Posted on 14/10 by T J Dilfer
Weekly Expert Betting Tips - Join our free mailing listAt any racetrack, the barrier draw plays a huge part in deciding which horse to back, but in The Caulfield Cup - it is everything.
Despite the race being run over a mammoth 2400m, horses need to be in a prime position around Caulfield's extremely tight bends. And if your horse is not in the vanguard, you can rip your ticket up before the race even begins.
Take Alcopop as an example. This horse was clear favourite with the bookies at $5.50 a couple of days ago, yet the chances are that the horse will start at twice those odds due to a nightmare barrier draw of 22. Alcopop needs to circle and outpace a class field to win this one.
So, let's concentrate on the horses with good form and a good barrier draw.....
Shocking - drawn 12, not too bad.
Metal Bender - drawn 2, bit tight on the inside, but could be worse
Manighar - drawn 3, nice position with Oliver on board to achieve a good pitch
Alcopop - drawn 22, out with the washing, i wouldn;t back this at $16.00
Herculian Prince - drawn 6, no complaints for this horse
Faint Perfume - drawn 7, pretty much the plum draw. No excuses here
Dariana - drawn 8, big money for this horse, even more after a great draw
So out of the 7 chief contenders above, you can rule out Alcopop.
Take Faint Perfume and Dariana to battle out the finish. Latest odds below:
