There was certainly an on speed bias at Caulfield so ' worth of noting for the future

R4 Thoroughbred Club Stakes 3yo F G3 1200m

Our 1 x 3 play here was Saltaire who ran 3rd  in a slowly run affair rating 83/92 which was down on expectations confirms my suspicions that she is better kept at 1100m. The winner Brazen Style was only having start 3 coming off a soft MDN win with an SR 77 so her 93/99 was a big step up and suggests she is very much on the up.  Runner up Miraval Rose was also only having 3rd start coming off a 3 length MDN win with 93/98 also some very nice progression. We have seen over the years that at some point in a horses first 5 to 10 runs there is a big jump in ratings usually around 10 points, when that happens is the hard thing to assess. Our 1 x 3 strategy kept us safe.

R1 BM90

WATADEEL just lapped up the return to a mile, his last mile run was back in March where he was a strong winner 89/106 (+18), so no surprise to see 102/107 here. Von Hauke also relished his first run at a mile 101/104 was a career best and he had 2.5 lengths on 3rd. He is worth following. Our Gold Miner Excelleration was 5th but his 23.1 was actually fastest last 400m in the race with 91/101 (+10) a rock solid return. 

HTF - Von Hauke

R1 Carbine Club G3 1600m 3yo 

We find the Trifecta in our top 4 with the winner Kaizad rated at $6.60 a winning Gold Miner at $11. Numbers were slick with the winner going on from his 96/98 last start with 108/98. The Horse to follow was the runner up Heman who was peaking 3rd up out at the mile for the first time with 106/105 containing the best splits by far in the race. Brace Mead was also rock solid with 103/101
