Caulfield Race 7: Hyland Colours Autumn Stakes 1400m

13/02/2015: If it’s acknowledged that Moonovermanhattan, Bondeiger and Magicool are not serious players in this race as they are being set for longer, and more suitable, races in a few weeks this race essentially becomes a BM74 class race. On that basis the race will be fought out by Hong Kong Captain and Profit Share, as happened three weeks ago at Moonee Valley based on current form, but there are other chances. Hong Kong Captain doesn’t meet Petrology well at the weights but he is an improver and can keep winning often. The Profit Share stable are backing him up within seven days which is not always a winning move but the ease of his win last Saturday decreed that run wasn’t a gut buster. The promising Sarajevo flopped his only run at this distance in the Group 1 Golden Rose, prior to a spell, so forgiveness is needed however he has drawn badly and Sydney horses racing for the first time at Caulfield aren’t always reliable betting conveyances. Chill Party (massive odds), Firehouse Rock and Bascule are definite place chances on their best form lines. Go wide in the quaddie to be safe.

PACE COMMENTS Although not always out and out front runner it looks like San Nicasio has his chance to lead this field based on his run at Flemington three runs ago. There’s a wall of contenders for the on pace positions which means the pace should be solid enough early as those runners move forward to secure a position. This is the usual 1400m scenario at Caulfield in fields of this size. Just the same they will go slightly slower mid race as the field negotiates the turns at the back of the course. Be wary about taking silly odds any of my get back types.
