This page displays various profit statistics for the selections placed on Caulfield races by Australia's leading racing personalities and expert punters.
On the tipping leader board, there are a number of different columns to look out for. The leader board is ranked by the profit win percent column, which represents profit made as a percentage of bets outlayed. Tipsters with a positive profit are in the black, and are the ones to follow. However, it is also interesting to look at the strike rate percentage for both win and place, demonstrating how often the experts' selections and best bets fill the placings.
Located 8km south-east of Melbourne's CBD, Caulfield Racecourse held its first meeting in 1876, and has since then has become one of Australia's premier tracks for watching and punting on thoroughbred horses. Now synonymous with the Caulfield Cup, the racecourse hosts the third most Group Ones in Australia, only behind Flemington and Randwick.
The popular race track is at the centre of the autumn carnival in Melbourne, with high-quality races such as the Futurity and C F Orr over 1400 metres taking place in February. However, the definite highlight of the season is the Blue Diamond, giving emerging two-year-olds the chance to strut their stuff in the first Group One of their careers. But it is in mid-October when the Melbourne Racing Club venue hosts its principal meets on back-to-back Saturdays. The first is Caulfield Guineas day, which sees the running of four Group Ones, including the Toorak Handicap and eponymous Caulfield Guineas. The following Saturday is the grand final for the track, hosting the Caulfield Cup over 2400 metres. Regarded as one of 'the big four' races and a key lead-up race to the Melbourne Cup, the world renowed race provides a key form guide for the race that stops the nation, as well as being a fantastic event in its own right.
The track is triangular in shape, with three short straights connected by three sharp curves. This tight-turning track can have a tendency to favour leaders, as well as benefit horses that have drawn an inside gate. Like all Victorian tracks, the horses run in an anti-clockwise direction. While the 367-metre finishing straight is relatively short compared with other racecourses, there is still enough distance for capable horses to get out and swoop down the outside.
