The Group 1 Might And Power has been renamed in honour of the star of the turf, and another champion is set to take out the price at Caulfield on Saturday.

Orginially the Caulfield Stakes in honour of our late champion of the turf, the Might And Power has often been a great WFA 2000m lead up to the Cox Plate held a fortnight later as well as the Caulfield Cup for horses wanting a one-week back-up.

The Underwood Stakes form generally heads to this race due to the Group One Turnbull Stakes held at Flemington one week later. This year, Cox Plate favourite Zaaki heads the betting coming through an Underwood Stakes win and is the one they all have to beat.

2021 Might And Power Tips

Best Bet - Zaaki

He should just win this and do it with his head on his chest out to 2000m, especially with what I am expecting to be a rolling tempo with No Effort in the event.

He was very green at Sandown in the Underwood Stakes, but his class was well above Probabeel who he meets again, and it is fair to say that this horse is more suited than the mare over this trip.

He won the Group One Doomben Cup over this trip last prep producing a Winx like rating, so if anywhere near that level he wins by panels.

He was the winner of the Foundation Cup last start which looked his to win after placing fourth at WFA Group Two level at the start prior.

Winning that event booked his spot in next week's Caulfield Cup, so naturally anotehr run at 2000m will do him the world of good for next week's assignment.

I can't see him beating Zaaki, but at 2000m, hard fit, he is the one I give the least convictions to and is place value.
