Best Bets – Sat 19th August

QUEZETTE STAKES

CAULFIELD R7 (1100m) 3:25 pm

Liked the way CHARM STONE jumped out at Cranbourne on August 7. She pulled clear like a horse who had plenty in the tank and looked ready to go first up. Will need luck from the draw but hopefully Damien Lane can find cover and round them up late.

VAIN STAKES

CAULFIELD R8 (1100m) 4:05 pm

CYLINDER comes back to Caulfield after a successful campaign over the Autumn carnival in Sydney running 2nd in the Golden Slipper and then not handling the heavy in the Sires. He has come back in fine style winning two trials prior to coming south and although meets a handy field here first up, his class should be able to show through.

P.B. LAWRENCE STAKES

CAULFIELD R9 (1400m) 4:40 pm

MR BRIGHTSIDE won this race last year and he looks to be the one to beat again. Pushed right out in winning a Flemington jump-out Aug 7, he looked ready to go first up. At weight-for-age he looks pitch-forked into this race and should start his campaign off as a winner.

CLASS 3 PLATE

DOOMBEN R6 (1200m) 2:38 pm

RAINBOW CONNECTION looks well suited here. Started a well backed favorite last time at Eagle Farm and seemed to have every chance but that was first-up and the rise in journey here, second up should be to his advantage. Would expect him to get a gun trip in behind the speed and only needs some luck on straightening, to prove to be the one to beat.

COMMEMORATION HANDICAP

BELMONT PARK R4 (1200m) 1:53 pm

PONYA jumped in front last time out and gave nothing else a chance. Second up now and this five-year-old mare should be even fitter after that hit out a fortnight ago. Look for Pikey to jump out and dictate from the lead again and should prove the one they will have to catch.
