Caulfield Guineas Introduction

The Caulfield Guineas is a Group One race over 1,600m and is held at Caulfield Racecourse. The race is exclusively for three-year-old horses and is run under set weights with a total prizemoney pool of $3,000,000. The 2022 Caulfield Guineas will be held on Saturday, October 8th and was won by Anamoe in 2021.

The Caulfield Guineas is the headline act on a massive day of racing at Caulfield Racecourse, with four Group Ones held there on Saturday, October 9th, and kicks of the Caulfield Spring Carnival Week, which includes Thousand Guineas Day on the Wednesday and the Caulfield Cup the following Saturday. Being run exclusively for three-year-olds colts & geldings, the Caulfield Guineas is one of the premier races testing how well the two-year-old crop from the previous season has come on.

The Caulfield Guineas, run over 1,600m, can be a bit of a cross-roads event, with some horses doing well and being sent to stud while other horses perform at a high level but then chase further glory in events like the Cox Plate and more.

A massive $2,000,000 is on offer in the race and has trainers preparing their horses for what can be a grand final event in their preparation, given what is at stake. As such, we have seen some incredible horses come out on top since the first running in 1881, including Artilleryman (who won the Melbourne Cup in the same year), Ajax, High Caste, Tulloch, Vain, Manikato, Redoute’s Choice, Lonhro and Starspangledbanner.

Anamoe won as short priced favourite in 2021. He did this after a narrow second in the Golden Rose and looks set to be sent to the Cox Plate, hoping to become just the fourth three-year-old to win the race since the turn of the century.

Caulfield Guineas Tips From Experts

Our tips are not out for the Caulfield Guineas in 2022 as it is too far out from the event. But the good news is that when the final field for the Caulfield Guineas is announced, we will provide guidance on each and every runner in the 2022 Caulfield Guineas.

Caulfield Guineas Betting 2022

With so many great runners and often large fields, the Caulfield Guineas is often an incredible race, however it has been relatively kind to punters over the years. Three of the last six winners have had starting prices inside $3, while four have been inside $10. The only outlier over that time was Mighty Boss, who had a mammoth starting price of $101 in 2017.

Given the $2M at stake, the Caulfield Guineas field is often large and full of exceptional talent. That allows us to see some incredible racing and allows punters to have some great success when placing their Caulfield Guineas bets. We have broken down some of the most important factors when looking for a Caulfield Guineas winner below:

Is Two-Year-Old Form Vital for Caulfield Guineas Success?

While you always want the horse you are backing to have had previous success, two-year-old form isn’t vital to Caulfield Guineas success. Anamoe was the best two-year-old of his season, winning the G1 1400m Sires Produce after finishing second in the Golden Slipper two weeks earlier. However, the two winners before that, Super Seth (2019) and Ole Kirk (2020), only won at listed or handicap level as two-year-olds.

Ole Kirk won just one of his four races, coming no better than 3rd in his other three, which included the G1 Sires Produce (4th) and G1 Champagne Stakes (3rd). Super Seth on the other hand won two of his three runs as a two-year-old, but didn’t contest a group race until his Spring three-year-old season.

The Autumn Sun, the winner in 2018, had an even better two-year-old season than Anamoe, proving that two-year-old form can indicate success. He raced nine times for eight wins, which included the G1 JJ Atkins as a two-year-old. This highlights that, unless you have an incredible talent, two-year-old form isn’t an absolute requirement when looking for the right horse to back, but instead looking at how they return as a three-year-old and their form leading into the race, which we will dissect below.

Formlines Heading into the Caulfield Guineas

The Autumn Sun actually suffered his only career loss in his first run as a three-year-old, in the G2 Stan Fox Stakes, however won the G1 Golden Rose two weeks later before a three week break in the leadup to the Caulfield Guineas, entering it third up.

Super Seth took a very different path to success, running in the Guineas fourth up and not contesting the Golden Rose. He won his first up run in the G3 McNeil Stakes but then came 6th in the G2 Danehill Stakes and 5th in the G3 Guineas Prelude.

Ole Kirk contested and won the G1 Golden Rose, much like The Autumn Sun, but had yet another different lead up to his win. Anamoe also contested the Golden Rose but finished second to In The Congo. However, Anamoe won the Run To The Rose prior to that and had been favourite for this race since his two-year-old season.

Should I Bet On The Favourite in the Caulfield Guineas?

The favourite is definitely a great place to start when looking for Caulfield Guineas betting tips. Over the last 11 years, the favourite has won on six occasions, with one of those being an equal-favourite.

If you don’t like the favourite, or there is a horse at ridiculously short odds and want to bet around him, the second favourite has won three times over that stretch with the third favourite winning another. Just two horses over the last 10 years have won at double digit odds, highlighting that the market knows who the class horses are in the race.

In 2021, Anamoe got crunched into $2.10 when he jumped, justifying that quote by winning easily. Ole Kirk won at $4.20 in 2020, which had him priced as equal favourite for the race. Super Seth was equal-second favourite when he won in 2019, but had very nice odds of $7.50 The Autumn Sun has had the shortest odds of any winner of the Caulfield Guineas over the last 10 years, winning in 2018 with a price of $1.70.

This is prime time to bet on your favourite horse, as you might be able to bet on strong contenders for the 2022 Caulfield Guineas at double-digit odds.

Caulfield Guineas Results 2022

With the race yet to be run, we still don’t know what the Caulfield Guineas results for 2022 will be! However, check back in after the race and we will have all of the information on how the big race went and what the results are.

Looking back at the 2021 race, Anamoe was able to find cover, peeled off heading into the bend and was too good down the straight. He finished half a length ahead of Captivant while Artorius was a fast-finishing third, crossing the line 1.25L back from the winner.

There was plenty of talk of the wide draw for Anamoe entering the race but he was able to sit three-wide with cover, which is exactly what Olly would have wanted. He was then able to trail Captivant around the bend and find clear air at the top of the straight, where he simply was too good. While he didn’t take the lead from Captivant until under the last 100m, he looked like the winner from a long way out.

Artorius did himself no favours by jumping poorly from barrier two, but he typically gets back anyway. He then had to go from on the fence to nearly widest on the track in order to get clear air but it was too little too late, finishing third.
