2019 Caulfield Guineas Best Bet – Alligator Blood @ 4.80

Alligator Blood is an unbeaten runner from Queensland which could take Melbourne by storm this Saturday.

The David Vandyke-trained three-year-old has done nothing wrong in five starts to date, winning them all including the Guineas Prelude last time out.

He's a gelding which could mature into a potential top-liner and winning the Guineas would certainly frank that opinion.

Punters are getting great odds here and they're worth taking.

2019 Caulfield Guineas Best Each Way – Subedar @ 15.00

We are surprised at the odds on offer for Subedar, which ran a nice race for second last time out.

The James Cummings-trained runner has been around the mark throughout his career, which includes two wins and two second placings.

The Caulfield Guineas can often throw in an odd result, which plays right into the hands of Subedar punters.

He's worth including in selections and we're comfortable in backing him in.

2019 Caulfield Cup Best Roughie – Super Seth @ 11.00

Super Seth is a little bit of a risky bet but he’s at value odds with bookmakers.

The Cummings-trained colt won his first two races in fine style. He scored by six lengths on debut before winning at Caulfield by a length.

However, he wasn’t able to remain unbeaten last start at Flemington but he did have excuses and he shouldn’t have lost too many admirers with that run.

It’s good to see some money coming for the son of Dundeel and that breeding should result in him getting the 1600m distance.

There are some concerns about his class at the Group 1 level but he’s worth the risk at the odds.
