We'll message you the best tips for today!
We have studied the form from all races across the country for Saturday, October 15, and provided our best horse racing tips.
Surely not even the weather God’s can stand in the way of what is fast becoming the most anticipated race day on the calendar. That being the Caulfield Cup and The Everest two state double.
Both cards are rich with stakes races and exposed form from high quality gallopers making wading through the guide somewhere between a punter’s delight and an absolute nightmare. But we take all the hard work out of it here for you at The Racing Sharks.
We have made five selections in total and are confident that we have found you some winners! So, read on below to find our best horse racing tips for this Saturday, October 15.
Randwick, Race 3 – 1. Cascadian ($1.70)
They were quick to grab the price here but he still looks a tasty multiplier to get everyone all off on the right foot, or add value to some of your picks later in the day.
He hasn’t always been the most genuine conveyance but he has been pretty faultless his last four starts, including his three runs this time in.
Two wins from his past four, both at this track, both on the heavy, both at WFA, one in a G1 All Aged Stakes over 1400m and the other coming last start in the Hill Stakes over 2000m. And he’s mixed a bit of form in and around I’m Thunderstruck in between just for good measure.
Drops back to 1800m here, McDonald up, drawn well. Looks a moral.
The Shark’s Tip
1. Cascadian ($1.70)
Caulfield, Race 4 – 7. Foxy Cleopatra ($4.20)
Big step up in grade again here but she looks ready for it.
Came out of a strong maiden where she was eye-catching along with a touch unlucky. Then bypassed Maiden grade and went straight to a BM64 at Moonee Valley where she simply blew them away.
She was heavily supported in the VRC Oaks off the back of that and they haven’t let up since, leaving her firmly entrenched at the pointy end of that market.
The draw is not ideal but she has a serious turn of foot to overcome that and a jockey hungry for black type success.
Comes out of a barn who have a fantastic record with their 3YO’s and whilst it is a big leap from a benchmark race at The Valley into a Group 3, these are the right sort of races you can do it in.
She is certainly bred for the trip as opposed to being bred to get through the ground, but they will all be on the same footing. You quite often see horses who aren’t necessarily wet trackers later in life, still being too good for their rivals at this early stage of their career in a race where we are essentially sorting the contenders and the pretenders out for a tilt at the Oaks.
Think she is the real deal.
The Shark’s Tip
7. Foxy Cleopatra ($4.20)
Randwick, Race 6 – 7. Remarque ($7.00/$2.50)
This race has become a real highlight of The Everest race day card since essentially becoming its consultation prize in 2017.
In that time it has unearthed some handy up and coming sprinters such as In Her Time and Pierata who would go on to contest the main race in future years.
Once again we see a perfect setup for a horse of that calibre here with most of these being fairly tried and tested cattle, clearly punctuated by the fact Kementari is favourite.
Remarque has always threatened to be a stakes grade sprinter but struggled to put it together as a colt when racing against his own age.
Now a 4YO and a gelding, he is unbeaten this preparation stringing back to back wins together in impressive style, particularly his latest effort.
Travelled beautifully in the ground, trucked up three deep well before the point of the bend and looked the winner a long way from home.
This lot are no slouches by any stretch and he would need to pull out a personal best to beat them but he is set to peak third up, ticked the heavy track box with his latest win and it is safe to say he is more untapped than just about all of these.
Looks ready to really make his mark on the sprinting scene.
The Shark’s Tip
7. Remarque ($7.00/$2.50)
Randwick, Race 7 – 11. Jacquinot ($11/$3.10)
Think it will really take something from left field to topple Nature Strip here.
A reasonably positive forecast by recent standards probably gives him the wood over Eduardo and as impressive as Lost and Running was first up and again last start, and even with the improvement we saw from Mazu, they still appear a length or more off the two veterans.
The draw leaves him a little vulnerable in such a high quality race and whilst I’m by no means suggesting you would lay him, it is worth ‘specking’ a roughie or playing some wider multiples.
The three year olds always bring great interest into this race, along with many other open weight for age contests including the Cox Plate where we saw Anamoe go so close to victory last year.
Jacquinot is the pick of the freshmen lining up here, bringing far superior form out of the Golden Rose which has subsequently produced a Caulfield Guineas winner, as opposed to Giga Kick who has beaten horses that were either not thought of as being up to the early Sydney Spring features, or those that have headed to Victoria for easier targets.
His win in the Golden Rose was phenomenal. His performances and racing pattern is very much on point with a horse like Yes Yes Yes, the race’s only 3YO victor. And with the 5.5kg weight pull, he looks like the horse with the ‘x’ factor required to perhaps pull off an upset victory if there is going to be one.
If it stays or races in the genuinely heavy range I would suggest defaulting to Mazu at similar odds. But any upgrade above an 8 and this is your guy.
Sure to be a cracking race.
The Shark’s Tip
11. Jacquinot ($11/$3.10)
Randwick, Race 8 – 8. Loch Eagle ($11/$3.50)
Always had an opinion of this horse and his win resuming was simply too good to go past here.
He has always been there abouts in this kind of company with comparable form lines through more fancied chances Mr Mozart in the Hawkesbury Guineas, having twice met Vilana last prep, and there is also a sneaky reference through Espiona amongst the field he trounced first up.
He was able to round them up there from last against a +6m rail pattern on a soft at Canterbury. The rail falls back into the true here, he’ll get soft to heavy again and tracks with long runs home suit having been stakes placed here and at Eagle Farm.
He is a winner at 1400m and a last start winner at 1250m which aligns well for the 1300m 2nd up of which he is one start, one win from his two campaigns to date.
Certainly in the thick of it on those stats as well as at weights and measures on exposed form. You are just taking a punt that he has been a slow maturing type and the penny has finally dropped at 4YO and into his 3rd prep.
And that win at Canterbury would suggest it really has. Loch Eagle in the Silver Eagle.

8. Loch Eagle ($11/$3.50)
