Caulfield Guineas Market Starts To Take Shape
Following Tuesday’s confirmation of nominations for the 2018 Gr1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m), market assessors have been hard at work to post early prices. While The Autumn Sun remains a popular favourite, the market is as wide open as the mouth of the Amazon River, with all runners quoted at double figure odds. Unsurprisingly, among the early fancies for October’s event is maiden Ooohood, triple Gr1-placed as a 2YO in the Blue Diamond, Golden Slipper and Sires Produce. Second favourite is Brutal, stunning winner of his only start by 5-lengths at Caulfield over 1200m. The only other entrants quoted at less than $26 are Good ‘n’ Fast, Miss Fabulass, Native Soldier, Outrageous, Perfomer, Smart Melody and Tony Nicconi. As is always the case there is a ton of water to flow downstream between now and post time.
