On a race day predominantly dominated by Group racing at Caulfield this Saturday, IASbet.com bookmaker Mark Read has produced a surprise to punters tipping Baughurst ($13.00) to win the G1 Yalumba Stakes.
“Baughurst could be this year’s Duoro Valley,” stated Read. “A lot of his opposition have the Cox Plate on their agenda, and he represents great value sitting upfront with absolutely no early pace, and the favourites back in the field.”
In regards to the Toorak Handicap, Raheeb ($5.00) is extremely hard to beat from the ideal barrier according to Read. “Both Racing To Win ($9.00) and Black Pirahna ($7.00) have too much weight, whilst Raffaelo ($6.00) could not have drawn worse opposed to the way he races.”
Although selecting Manhattan Rain ($6.50) in the Caulfield Guineas, Read declares that this event appears more open than first glance suggests. “Denman ($2.80) thoroughly deserves favouritism, however, So You Think ($10.00 into $7.00) and Trusting ($4.80 in to $4.60) have been solidly backed to beat him. This race is set to be a mighty contest.”
