2016 Caulfield Guineas Preview & Tips:
Track: Good Weather: Fine
There is a field of 14 with 11 colts and 3 geldings for the $1,000,000 Caulfield Guineas. The early market is fairly open with Stan Fox Stakes winner Impending marginally ahead of Divine Prophet who was 2nd in that race. Third in the market is New Zealander Sacred Elixir who finished last campaign with a 3.5 length win in the Group 1 JJ Atkins Plate, and resumed with a solid win in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude.
Evacuation won his first 2 starts before 7th in the Prelude after a tough run. Good Standing kept chasing for 3rd in the Stan Fox Stakes. Hey Doc has won all 3 starts since resuming, improving with each run with his latest a 1.5 length win in the G2 Stutt Stakes. Saracino won two Group 2 races before 5th in the Prelude after being held up, and should be highly competitive. All other runners are currently 16 to 1 or longer.
