Caulfield Village Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open field engaged. Barber had his chance last start but found one better on the day. This race is no harder and he is sure to prove hard to beat. Hypothetical has plenty of speed and will be on the speed from the get go. Fasuto is big odds in this and maps for a lovely run in transit. Extremely Lucky also goes in the mix with still plenty of upside to come.

Caulfield Village Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Indian Pacific (11)

Prefer others.

2. Curran (6)

Capable of a run on his day but has been a while between drinks. Leaning to others.

3. Outlaws Revenge (5)

Can’t have.

4. Hypothetical (1)

Loaded with speed and should be able to fire out of the barriers and give them something to catch. This race is within reach and chances enhanced with any pace pattern on the day.

5. Barber (12)

Good money for it last run and had its chance. This race is no harder and while the wide draw isn’t ideal a red hot in form Jamie Kah steers. Hard to beat.

6. Extremely Lucky (4)

Gets Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle. Respect the stables placement in this.

7. Semillion (8)

Going a lot okay but due for another win. Respect any market moves on the day.

8. Zac De Boss (7)

Can’t have.

9. Prowling (3)

Monitor the market for its chances fresh. Capable at this level and goes in the mix.

10. Rattle And Bang (9)

Good effort last start. Place chance in this with luck from the draw.

11. Sghirripa (10)

Hard to line the form up but having a great prep and has built a superb record. Crowther is 2/2 aboard and she is here for the ride.

12. Fasuto (2)

Best roughie of the race. Up to this level and has had a few excuses his past few runs. Seems priced off that rather than ability and goes right in the mix here.
