Caulfield Cup ? Err...No Thanks

What is it with the Caulfield Cup this year ?

Does it smell ?

No - what you are smelling there is just the putrid stench of our awful tips. Scrub as hard as you like - there is no getting rid of that.

Have another sniff ?

It just seems that no-one is that interested in running in the Caulfield Cup this year.

It is a traditional part of spring racing that you aim for the Melbourne Cup coming through a Caulfield Cup preparation, just as those in their mid teens follow the traditional spring Caulfield Cup - VCE English Exam - Schoolies Week preparation.


Actually we will plead guilty there to a very cheap shot for a extremely cheap laugh.

Although the Caulfield Cup Day crowd is always on the younger side there has been a serious crack down on under age drinking in the last couple of years and the Melbourne Racing Club have implemented policies to address the issue. If you look remotely under 30, not only will you need to provide photo id, birth certificate, assorted baby photos and a DNA sample, but you will also probably get ID checked, X-rayed, scanned and strip searched 4-5 times before you actually get to the bar.

There is also no under 18 entry unless you are accompanied by an adult over 30. Which six months ago would have been a great cue to do a St Kilda school girl gag - and be celebrated for at least ten minutes for reaching the very pinnacle of sharp wit in our modern twitter-verse. Can we have a FM breakfast radio slot yet ? Pretty please ?

But seriously, back to the racing.

For weeks the Caulfield Cup betting market has been full of more asterisks, footnotes and disclaimers than a dodgy cheapskate gift voucher (which always make a great Xmas gift). Before the final field was announced, most of the Caulfield Cup favoured runners had (doubtful), (unlikely), (you would have to be joking) and (not in a million years - you creep) next to their name.

This spring, all the trainers seemed to be shuffling their feet, looking awkward and making mumbling excuses when it comes to the Caulfield Cup.

"Oh you know - we would love to run him, but I have the kids that weekend."

"Think we are away that weekend. Need some paddock time and to get back to nature. Sorry - some other time ?"

"Too old for this sort of stuff - thanks anyway."

Last year's winner DESCARADO, despite returning to form last weekend at Caulfield passed on running.
"Got a Caulfield Cup already, so been there and done that - sussing out this Cox Plate thingy this year".

Reigning Melbourne Cup winner AMERICAIN passed saying he had put on too much weight and besides he had a hot date lined up with BLACK CAVIAR. Being a Frenchie he does like his black caviar. Oh la la

Improving stayer SHEWAN who won the traditional lead up, the Hebert Power last week, also dodged the subject. "Had a biggie last weekend mate, planning to lay low this weekend".

The in form GLASS HARMONIUM politely declined.
"Off to the Cox Plate mate, hoping they are going to get Daryl Braithwaite so play his hit Horses before the race again. Totally love that song - worth going just for that. Guy is a legend".

Most of the Williams stable runners LINTON, MOURAYAN, EFFICIENT, AT FIRST SIGHT all go straight to the Melbourne Cup. Not that they have any choice in the matter, it is just their owner Lloyd Williams has this total and utter Melbourne Cup obsession and has banned them from going anywhere near those south eastern Caulfield types and their so-called cup.

It is like the nerdy kid trying to get the cool people to come to his birthday party. Everyone seems to want to go for that flashy Cox Plate next week. TABCORP even threw in a two million dollar bonus for any horse that won the Cranbourne and Caulfield Cup, but that didn't help. In a last ditch desperation move the Melbourne Racing Club has put signs out on Dandenong Rd near the racecourse - "Got a Horse and free next weekend ? Come and have a race."

Which just leaves the international horses - dozens of them slumming it in a backpackers down at Werribee that is so bad that they call it the Quarantine Centre. Any you know that they will turn up to absolutely anything..


Deposit $50 - bet with $200 offer

For this week only IASBET have been nice enough to increase their freebie offer.

Now if you deposit $50, you will automatically get credited with $150 worth of free bets.

The standard offer is only a $100 freebie. These offers are extremely popular so we can only offer them for a short amount of time else IASBET get a little bit cranky.

You can bet the same way you bet on the TAB, so you can take quinellas, trifectas and the ever desirable quadrellas and often you will get a dividend that is better than what your local TAB pays. Plus you can choose between tote odds or fixed odds and more often than not end up collecting even more when you back a winner.

Always read the Terms and Conditions on these offers - to make sure you make the most of them.

Last Week's Results

Springus Stinky-us

Again it was struggle town for the Turf Deli selections on Thousand Guineas Day, with just the one short priced, dead obvious winner on top, and 3 winners in the selections from 7 races. Just like the Queen had her Annus Horribilis, there is no denying that we have had an utterly awful Springus Stinky-us so far.

Even worse the Lay of the Day, got up - yet again. We were hoping to lose count of exactly how many that is, but suspect it is an unprecedented 6 winners from 11 meetings for the horse that we DON'T think can win. Though, to be honest we wouldn't take $2.60 about COSMO-CAT even after it had won.

The Betting Portfolio has its first wipe out of the season, which means we are now almost back to even and going to have to pull out something special to get momentum going again. If you believe in Turf Deli, clap you hands, or better still write and sign some blank cheques and drop them off at our place. Cheers.

If you are heading out to Caulfield this week check out our Caulfield Track Guide .

Handy hints with associated nonsense about where to meet, where to hang out and how to avoid the queues on course.

Note the following :

- the on course food was pretty ordinary on Caulfield Guineas Day, but all the best food outlets are hidden out the back of the course. Walk out the back, past the TABARET and up the straight away from the winning post and to the other side of the bizarre Big Top / nightclub thing. Here there are some lovely, healthy and tasty food vendors who seriously got shafted on space allocation. No lines, and much better quality food.

- the once a year attendees queue for the portables, or crowd into the ground floor facilities of the main grandstand. Those with some inside knowledge walk out the back of the course and towards the stables, opposite the betting ring where the old, red brick large toilet block is clean, sturdy, and has no frustrating lines - even for the girls.

Come Spring time these cute little cuddly fellas are always so popular.

Everyone wants one or wants to look like one at the fancy dress Melbourne Cup BBQ.

Remember a jockey is not just for Spring Carnival.

At the end of every Cup Week unloved jockeys are often just left abandoned on the steps of the local TAB.

So think about adopting a jockey. They are available in a wide range of silks / colour schemes so they can make a great garden feature.

Betfair First Bet Free

BETFAIR's current offer is a refund up to $100 on your first bet if it loses.

Great if you are a small bettor and always dreamed of having a ping at one at odds over the spring.

You can sign up, have a ping, and if it wins - collect big, if not, back to the drawing board and just bet as normal. After the first bet, you can place your normal TAB bets through BETFAIR as well as they link in with the Tasmanian TAB.

Always read the Terms and Conditions on these offers - to make sure you make the most of them. Note that the offer is not valid for VIC and SA residents. The bet has to be a single bet of up to $100, so you can't split it across a horse at different odds. Our recommendation would be to use the BETFAIR Starting Price option.

Every week over spring we are going to pick out a horse at better than $10 to have a $100 no risk ping on.
