Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Tuesday’s Caulfield meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 8 races. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 6m entire circuit
MISS DIVINE EM looks ready to win. She has been placed in all three starts this time in and from ideal barrier she should get all the favours and have last crack at these.
RAINBIEL resumes. Won her maiden at Benalla first-up last time in work then back that up with Kyneton win. She looks promising and definite chance fresh.
DIAMONDS INTHE SKY just keeps winning. Broke maiden status at Geelong two back then led throughout winning here last start. She is the one to catch.
AMINATU was strong winning at The Valley last start. She sat on speed before sprinting clear final stages. Drawn little awkwardly but can win again.
Tip: MISS DIVINE EM
RIDGEWOOD DRIVE comes into this third-up from spell. Gets out to the 2000m which should suit and would be looking for vast improvement.
TAKUMI won this track/distance two starts back then looked unlucky not to be right in finish at Flemington when held-up late. He will be right in the mix.
DOROZA chased hard and proved too strong at Flemington last start. Steps up into a harder race but he can measure up to these.
HARD ‘N’ TOUGH was placed in similar race to this two starts back then was impressive ay Lakeside last start when sustained long run for tough win.
Tip: RIDGEWOOD DRIVE
EXTREME WARRIOR was sent out favourite here on debut but left run little too late finishing second behind Fake Love. Had break since and expect he will go close fresh.
GULF OF SUEZ has been dominant in both his wins in Adelaide. Finds a much tougher assignment but hard not to respect his winning form.
GENERAL BEAU won with something in hand at Flemington on debut then just found one better when odds on in the Maribyrnong Trial. Had break since and drawn to get ideal run.
ABSEILER finished too well to beat Telluride (has won since) at Flemington on debut. Better from the race experience and he can make it two from two.
Tip: EXTREME WARRIOR
FROST FLOWERS created a big impression when she cruised in at Flemington on debut. Will only be better from the race experience and she can win again.
DOSH showed abundance of speed at Flemington to win on debut but did do plenty wrong late when ducked out sharply. Drawn to lead and if she does everything right will take beating.
SAASMIT showed an impressive turn-of-hoof to win at Murray Bridge on debut. Steps up sharply in class but has untapped ability.
Of the unraced would keep an eye on the nicely bred VIVIANE. Chased home Enthaar in her only trial. Big watch.
Tip: FROST FLOWERS
LA MEXICANA resumes from spell. She showed she was above average last time in work and from inside gate Jamie Kah should get perfect run and have last crack at these.
MISS ALBANIA is a speed machine. Moving through her classed with authority. She should come across and lead these and can measure up to this class.
ABSOLUTE FLIRT was well supported into favourite at Flemington last start and did not let her supporters down with soft win. She can go on with it.
MODEAR chased home strongly when placed at Flemington last start. Should get nice run behind the speed and can figure again.
Tip: LA MEXICANA
VIRAL was sent out favourite at Flemington last start and she chased hard last 200m for good tough win. Should get perfect sit behind the speed and will have last crack at these.
MORVADA resumes from spell. Only the one pacing fresh but he has plenty of ability and if forward enough can measure up to this.
POLANCO overraced a touch at Flemington last start and just did not finish off well enough but still not beaten far. If he can settle a touch better he can surprise these.
BLAZEJOWSKI was not beaten all that far here two starts back then went to Flemington and just bit one paced. Has the talent to figure in multiples.
ALL BANTER is moving through her classes with two strong wins this prep. Steps up to Listed company but has the experience of Craig Williams and she can measure up to this.
RIDING THE WAVE led throughout to win at Flemington two starts back then just did not settle last start and that cost him. Gets his chance to bounce back in this.
SHAMINO was dominant in Listed company two starts back then he just got too far back last start and never featured. If he finds best he can figure.
BONS AWAY was making steady ground first-up at Flemington and with that run under his girth he can improve enough to be a factor.
Tip: ALL BANTER
REGARDSMAREE fought the race out strongly to win at Bendigo two starts back then looked home here last start before being overran late. Awkward gate but will look winner at some stage in straight.
DIRTY DEEDS just did not finish the race off well enough here first-up. Sure to be better from that outing and he will be an improver.
HEART OF PUISSANCE resumes. Took on a hot All Star Mile before going for a break. Resumes in easier company here.
CIELO D’ORO started this prep in super form winning his first couple then he had excuses when pulled up lame here last start. Awkward barrier but cannot leave out.
