Alpine Edge will wear the number one saddle cloth and comes down with a boom after placing in the Magic Millions Classic as a two-year-old before winning first-up as a three-year and running well second-up.

Lightsaber was the VRC Sires Produce Stakes winner of last season and will appreciate every step of the 1400m journey third-up.

Military Expert brings down the Sydney form which could be the best in Australia, but a last start stakes placing reads well for a race of this quality.

Caulfield Guineas Prelude Tips

Best Bet – Military Expert

Going with the NSW form as these Sydney colts do look to be that grade better than our Victorian three-year-olds.

Military Expert went into his debut with a good spruik and was only just nosed out by King Sparta, but not long after did win his maiden at Newcastle before tackling the Ming Dynasty, running a great second to Coastwatch.

The third placed horse in that event (Subterranean) was good from the back in the Dulcify last week, finishing just under three lengths from the Group One placed Giannis which is very good form for a race of this nature.

Next Best Bet – Alpine Edge

The Queensland three-year-old and Magic Millions place getter looks to have come back in good order with a win first-up with 60kg and finishing a close second to dominant subsequent winner Startantes.

We had blackbooked Alpine Edgeafter his first-up run knowing that once he found this 1400m journey, we would begin to see the best of him, and maybe even over the mile he will improve again.

We are trying to avoid the Victoran three-year-old as these interstate colts look classy horses. bringing in some proven form lines to what realistically is a moderate race on paper.

Value Bet – River Plate

He is yet to win a race, but the son of Flying Artie savaged the line last start at Sandown when running second to Draft Day who was on debut and beating Prowling who has won dominantly since.

The 1400m is going to be right up his alley and he looks to have the scope to be the best of the Victorian three-year-olds in this event, but of course this is an acid test for him.

Expect a bold performance, but he may just lack a touch of quality on these interstate runners.
