Caulfield Cup Form Guide

The Caulfield Cup form guide is a valuable punting resource. Using the Caulfield Cup form guide certainly improves your chances of making a successful punt.

Just about any horse in the field stands a decent chance of taking out the Caulfield Cup. However, some are far better placed than others. Punting is all about calculating chances, and increasing your knowledge of each horse allows you to more finely gauge their chances in that race.

When you’re analysing the Caulfield Cup form guide, focus on a few key areas. The number of starts a horse has had over 2400m, and their finishing position in those starts, is very relevant. If a horse regularly fails to perform in races with distances of 2400m or greater, then they may not have the finishing capability required to pass the post first.

Keep in mind that the Caulfield Cup is an extraordinarily competitive race, and each and every horse needs to perform at the absolute peak of its ability in order to win. As such, avoid wildly inconsistent horses. If it hasn’t won in twelve months, and has spent most of that time racing, then be very wary of backing it.

Track conditions also play a major role. Check out how each horse has fared in certain conditions. If they tend to place on good tracks and fail to finish in the top runners on dead tracks, then avoid them if the Caulfield track is dead.

Overall, look for a horse that has a lot of things going for it. If you need to rely too much on luck or a greater-than-average run on the day, you probably won’t be in the money.
