Caulfield Guineas Form Guide

It takes a good horse to win the Caulfield Guineas and there have been many favourites win in recent years.

The Autumn Sun was a popular elect when winning in 2018 and the likes of All Too Hard, Helmut and Weekend Hussler attracted big bets in the market.

It’s not subject to many upset results but Mighty Boss bucked that trend in 2017 when winning at triple-figure odds. It didn’t do much following that run, so it was a flash-in-the-pan performance from the three-year-old.

Punters will need to look at autumn form out of Melbourne and Sydney as the best form guides.

Caulfield Guineas History

The first Caulfield Guineas was run in 1881, which makes it one of the oldest age-group races in Australia.

Originally run at Flemington during the War-time period, the Caulfield Guineas has since made its home at Caulfield and it has been the starting point for many top echelon thoroughbreds.

Known as a stallion-making race, the Guineas has been won by many of Australia’s best stallions, including the likes of All Too Hard, Lonhro and Redoute’s Choice.

That’s not mentioning the likes of The Autumn Sun, Tulloch, Vain, Manikato and Surround, which are all past and present champions of the track.

It has always raced over 1600m since 1881 and it was given Group 1 status in 1979, when many of Australia’s top races became Group 1 level. That year, it was taken out by Runaway Kid after Manikato had won the year prior.

It’s a good race for future betting guides, including the Victoria Derby. Caulfield Guineas winners have gone on to win the Derby on 16 occasions, but the most recent came in 2002 with Helenus.
