A busy Caulfield Guineas day for us with six runners including the unbeaten Elkington Road in the feature event.

The Caulfield Guineas is race eight over 1600 metres with Jamie Mott aboard and Elkington Road (pictured) drawn barrier two.

The inside draw is a concern for Mike Moroney.

“I couldn’t be happier with the horse, he’s fit and well and trained on nicely since the last win,” Mike said.

“Unlike all our other runners he has drawn well and to be honest, I’m not sure it will be the best place for him cluttered up on the fence but it is what it is so it will be up to Jamie to weave some magic.

“Obviously it’s a big step up in class for him but it’s a Guineas without a group One winner in the race so we’re happy to take our chance.”

Buffalo River and Bankers Choice run in the Toorak Handicap over 1600 metres with Daniel Stackhouse aboard Buffalo River and Bakers Choice to be ridden by Craig Newitt.

“Buffalo River is nice and fit, he had a gentle tick over jumpout last Friday just to take the edge off him,” Mike said.

“I’d say he will still be able to get his toe in by the time this race is run and any additional rain will not inconvenience him but it’s a high pressure race so he will need a little luck.”

“I have added the blinkers to Bankers Choice to help him and I’m pleased with the way he is training but the draw is no help at all.

“I think he is good enough to win a race like this but he’s going to need some luck from the barrier.”

Emissary and The Good Fight both run in the Herbert Power Stakes over 2400 metres with Jye McNeil riding Emissary and Patrick Moloney on The Good Fight.

“Contrasts in track conditions for this pair, ideally it would be a bit firmer for Emissary whereas the wetter the better for The Good Fight,” Mike said.

“Emissary is training very well and ideally he can win today to get into the Caulfield Cup which is the goal.

“The Good Fight needs to improve but he’s fit and well and if we did happen to get a deterioration in conditions that will boost his chances.”

Not An Option is the first to go in the second race, the Weekend Hussler Stakes over 1400 metres with Jye McNeil riding.

“I could not be happier with the horse, his work has been excellent and he looks terrific but drawing one from the outside at the 1400 start has dented my confidence somewhat.

“He’s ready to win but will need some luck from the draw.”
