Caulfield Race 10: Mypunter Anniversary Vase 1400m

17/04/2015: I rarely select get back types, and especially if they are favourites, but there is something about Under The Louvre which suggests he will win Group races and if so he can win this. He rounded up the field at Mornington as if they were nailed to the fence. Just the same don’t fall for silly odds (I will be looking for $4 as a minimum). Marianne nearly made it as my A selection as she loves this track and has been beaten by Noble Protector twice recently and that mare ran a wide all the way blinder in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf at Randwick last Saturday. That’s a strong reference for this race. Sistine Demon tried so hard last start (my money weighed her down in the last few metres) and if he had drawn closer to the fence he would have been my A selection. It will be difficult to win from barrier eighteen at the tight 1400m at Caulfield. Bel Sprinter is finally out of Group 1 and Group 2 class and if this race was 1200m I would be rating him close to an A selection. However, at his first 1400m run it’s a bit of a puzzle as to what his chances really are. Certainly, weight and class wise, he is overs at $18. Mirage’s first up run was strong but it’s hard to know the full extent of his ability these days taking into account the two massive breaks he has had. We will know tomorrow but that’s too late! Pyrrolic has changed stables and his first up run was tip top so keep him safe. Place chances to Amorino, Gracious Prospect, Pin Your Hopes, Bippo No Bungus, Trade Commissioner, Precious Gem, Stratcombe and Refer.

PACE COMMENTS With Sistine Demon sure to cross over from out wide and the likelihood Mirage and Lord Durante will kick through the pace early should be solid. Adding the chance that a couple of the on pacers may push forward as well we find a race with genuine pace.
