Caulfield Race 10: Cape Grim Beef Steaks Handicap 1200m

9/10/2015: With the run of the race Wawail can make amends for her luckless first up run when she was totally boxed in for most of the straight behind Politeness. If she had won that race (a real possibility) she would be rated around Politeness so don’t worry about the handicappers ratings. She looks an enormous each way bet at $5.00. I would have thought her price would be around $3.50. I will slot Politeness into the B position purely on class (beaten 1.4 lengths at Group 1 level by Miracles Of Life: Wawail was a length behind her after pulling up lame) and the same goes for the New Zealand Group 1 Railway Stakes winner In Style though her 266 days break is a concern. Bring Me The Maid is excellent first up but she looks more of a wet tracker to me and is just in because of the classy runs she has shown when beaten in tougher races. Danestroem will get a soft lead and he loves this track and distance. She is terrific double figure odds so don’t leave her out of your exotics or as an each way saver.

PACE COMMENTS Pretty easy race map. Danestroem leads followed by Wawail and Catch That Cat with possibly In Style moving through. That's it for the lead, which in my opinion will make this race a worry for the backmarkers as it includes the favourite Politeness and well fancied first upper Bring Me The Maid. They can win because at the weights they are pitchforked into the race but the $3.0 for Politeness isn't value for a chronic back marker needing pace. Be wary.
