Just the one Group 1 race last weekend, but a host of races that will help shape some of the big races coming up in the next few weeks. Here’s a look at some of the most talked about performances from Rosehill and Caulfield last Saturday.
SATURDAY’s racing provided a mountain of evidence that we are in for one of the best spring carnivals in recent memory, with the bar being set a very high level as horses establish their credentials for the rich Group 1 races set to be decided over the next eight weeks.
Saturday was a day where well credentialed firmers in the betting market proved very insightful. When we look at genuine chances up to $10, those that firmed in betting returned +26% POT, while those that didn’t lost 16% on turnover.
A 50% strike rate from top rated runners across both meetings and +44.8% POT was the highlight of the day, but there was no shortage of other winners at good prices relative to the assessed price.
