2014 Caulfield Guineas Preview & Tips:
Track: Good Weather: Fine
Fourteen colts and geldings will line up for the $1,000,000 Beck Caulfield Guineas. The early favourite is Rich Enuff who has won all 3 starts this campaign and won the Group 3 C&G Guineas Prelude over 1400m last start. He has drawn wide again but will be very hard to beat. On the next line of betting are Shooting To Win, who won the G2 Stan Fox by 3 lengths last start, and Looks Like The Cat who charges home at the end of his races and will be suited by the 1600m.
Almalad is already a Group 1 winner and has won 4 of his 6 starts, so must be respected. Chivalry and Zebulon can both finish strongly and could run a place. Kumaon has ran some good placings but is not helped by his inside draw. All the other runners are currently 20 to 1 or longer.
The following are the top 4 selections from our tipster panel for this years race.
