CAULFIELD – SATURDAY DECEMBER 16

By Shane Templeton

Rail Position: Out 12m

Track Conditions: Good 4

Track Comments: Monitor any on speed patterns with the rail out 12m

Race 4, No 6 VINLAND

Is an emerging star who should win again. He toyed with his Sandown rivals and is ready to take on older gallopers.

Race 9, No 8 ESSENCE

Is over the odds. She’s been finishing off well in 955 metre races at the Valley and is suited against fillies and mares over 1100 metres.

The Ellerton-Zahra team have a decent strike rate here at Caulfield in the past 12 months this season and have 8 runners in today.

Punters pounced on Race 1 No. 11 Ennis Hill and were happy to quickly take the lucrative odds about Race 3 No. 6 Montaser who was impressive on debut.

Race 6 (Leg 1): 5,6,9,10

Race 7 (Leg 2): 3,7,8,10

Race 8 (Leg 3): 1,8

Race 9 (Leg 4): 3,8,9,10,12,13
