Caulfield Cup Form Guide

The Caulfield Cup form guide is one of the most important assets any punter can have under their arm. It includes a massive amount of detail regarding the racing history of each horse in the race.

The Caulfield Cup form guide outlines the racing history of each horse. It provides a snapshot view of the total number of starts along with how many first, second and third places the horse has received. Total prize money won is a fairly good indicator of the level each horse has raced at.

The form guide should show how many races each horse has had at 2400m, and how they fared in those. You should also see statistics regarding the horse’s preferred track conditions, and whether they prefer running on harder surfaces, those with a bit of give, or in the wet.

A good form guide will provide you with individual details on every previous race ran by the horse. This allows you to get a somewhat clearer view of the history of the horse’s success. If it quickly becomes apparent that they consistently fail to place, for example, at Group 1 level at distances over 2000m, then that might be a horse to avoid in the Caulfield Cup.

You can also see by how much they missed out on a win. If a horse consistently misses out on the money by a length or similar, then they might still be a safe punt, as they could just be unlucky. In a highly competitive race like the Caulfield Cup though, backing an unlucky horse is unlikely to pay off.
