Caulfield Race 7: VOBIS Gold Reef 1600m

17/04/2015: All the statistics point to Fontein Ruby being the A selection without much thought attached. However, although Jurasound isn’t well weighted according to the handicappers ratings forget that a fraction as Fontein Ruby has had seven more starts. There is nothing to suggest Jurasound won’t have a rating close to Fontein Ruby after another seven runs as this is the classic lightly raced improver who can win more races than the four on the board so far. The gap in pre-post odds ($2.05 and $3.70) is too wide in my opinion. Von Classic Hero’s basic form looks average at best but apart from his defeat before a spell he is never far away and his last run, after 67 days,when a tad wide, was strong. His pre post price of $26 is surprising. Setinum has an enormous finishing burst and although a win would be no surprise I am going to risk him a fraction as per the racemap he is going to have to be very good to come from last and win. Place chances to Second Option and Primeiro.

Caulfield Race 7. RaceTime: AEST 15:25, 18/04/2015

Front Runners (1) Penryn Pearl, (6) Fontein Ruby.
On Pacers (4) Jurasound, (7) Primeiro, (10) Von Classic Hero.
Mid Fielders (2) Ultimate Doom, (11) Uncle Keithy, (12) War Point.
Get Back (3) Sebrella, (5) Stitch Me Up, (8) Painting, (9) Second Option, (13) Setinum.
PACE COMMENTS Fontein Ruby can either lead or sit off Penryn Pearl early while Jurasound, Primeiro and Von Classic Hero find their spots behind the leading duo. I envisage the pace will disadvantage the mid fielders and backmarkers so be wary, especially with Setinum who faces a task.
