It’s Spring time here in Melbourne, that time in the sporting landscape between the football and cricket when we all become horse racing experts and get into the Spring Racing Carnival. The highlight of the carnival is the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November, but one of the main lead up races is the Caulfield Cup, running tomorrow (Saturday 18th October). A big percentage of the population suddenly become racing experts at this time of year, myself included, even if that expertise only comes from ten minutes with the form guide.
I’ve been listening to Sports Radio SEN and checked the form to come up with my Caulfield Cup tips. I’m going for a quinella with number 9 JUNOOB and number 13 STIPULATE.

UPDATE; 10 minutes with the form guide doesn’t really make you an expert – my tips didn’t do so well.
They ran 7th and 12th!
