Runner Comments

1. Chief AltonyWinner at Sandown Lakeside and placed twice this prep. Only just missed in driving finish last start at Sandown Hillside on a heavy track. Thomas Stockdale a bonus. At least a place chance here.
2. Herman HesseFirst-up after 25 week break and generally strong first-up placing at Ballarat Synthetic last attempt. Returns to shorter trip. Prefer to watch go around.
3. Blue CupResumes from a long 44 week spell and coming to a new trainer. Down in distance. This looks too strong.
4. FallsFinished fourth last start at Sandown Hillside. Won't be far away in the run and will have a soft run from inside gate. Needs the breaks.
5. Somerset MaughamSht hd, 3/4 len 3rd of 9 (5) $5.00 57.0 Playoffs, Unique Artist 2000m Caulfield 3yo+ (Bm84) Good(3) Jan 26. Slowly away 5-3/4 len 6th of 15 (7) $26.00 57.0 Sir Davy 1600m Caulfield (Bm84) Soft(5) May 28.
6. The Big BuzzBack from let-up and racing in the city for the first time. Should run fitter for two previous outings. Appears tested.
7. BeltoroWon once this prep at Bendigo six runs back and has placed four times at Caulfield before. Drawn ideally. Serious player.
8. Fifth Position4-1/4 len 7th of 16 (16) $8.50 56.5 Five Kingdom 1800m Flemington 3yo+ (Bm84) Good(3) Dec 11. Tactics queried len, lg hd 3rd of 11 (5) $11.00 61.0 Vitruvius, Marcolt 1600m Sandown-Lakeside (Bm70) Heavy(9) June 1.

11. KeatsFinished 14 lengths back last start at Sandown Hillside and this campaign's form has left a lot to be desired. Concern is the wide barrier. Seems unlikely.
12. Lyrical LadRan four lengths back from the winner last start at Flemington on a soft track and down in distance. Has placed in two runs from four this campaign. Among the main chances.
13. First LightBack from 33 week spell and first run for a new trainer. Generally strong first-up but look to others.
14. Good And ProperFinished six lengths off the winner last start at Sandown Hillside on a heavy track and no wins in seven past runs at Caulfield. Should run fitter for two previous outings. Place.
15. Swelter MagicResumes from a 20 week spell and returns to shorter trip. Has shown early speed in races to date but still prefer others.
16. LaffalongFinished five lengths back last start at Flemington on a soft track and up in journey. Likely to settle back in the field. Not keen.
17. Coolth1-1/2 len 4th of 15 (8) $6.50 57.5 Hezashocka 1600m Flemington (Bm78) Soft(5) May 14. 2 len 2nd of 13 (4) $3.50F 54.5 Welsh Legend 1800m Flemington (Bm84) Good(3) May 21.
18. Eagles CragDisappointed when only placing as favourite last start at Swan Hill and gets the blinkers on for the first time. Amongst the placegetters first two attempts this prep. Leading contender.
19. PetruchioHampered near 800m 6-3/4 len 12th of 15 (11) $41.00 57.5 Hezashocka 1600m Flemington (Bm78) Soft(5) May 14. 14-1/4 len 11th of 13 (6) $61.00 58.5 Visinari 1600m Sandown-Hillside (Bm78) Heavy(9) June 11.
20. SaltpeterFinished at the rear last start at Sandown Hillside when first up but has multiple wins at Caulfield. Has won three of seven with the sting out of the ground but looking elsewhere.
