With a picture of what punters can expect this spring slowly emerging after a thrilling day at Caulfield, IASbet.com bookmaker Mark Read shares his thoughts on last weekend’s racing action.
“Stating that Mark Kavanagh is a carnival ‘specialist’ is an understatement, as once again he produced some fine efforts at Caulfield on Saturday. While Raffaello was backed in from $21.00 to $15.00 and then duly saluted, the finish of Whobegotyou had ‘be on me next start’ written all over it, as he narrowly went down first up to Predatory Pricer,” said Read.
“The $250,000 plunge on Typhoon Tracy, from $3.00 to $2.30 in the pre-post markets, went amiss. She looked the winner at the final furlong, but failed to finish the Liston Stakes off strongly. It looks as if to the journey to spring’s mega races is going to be exciting at every twist and turn.”
