One of the hottest races of the spring will be organized tomorrow at Caulfield. The betting stakes are high for the Group 1 $1m BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and so far Rich Enuff has emerged as the punters’ favorite for the meet. Ladbrokes has put the Ken Keys trained horse as the $2.20 favorite, while BetEasy has put it at $2.50.

Kays does seem optimistic about his horse’s abilities, but he is pretty cautious about the strong competition as well, as he has not won any Group 1 race in his 30-year career.
“I lie awake at night thinking about the race,” said Keys. “I want to dream it, but I’m just not game to,” he added.
“You don’t stop learning. You never stop. You’ll be dead when you stop. If you don’t learn every day you’ve got it all wrong.”
“You think you’re doing a good job and it you haven’t got good horses you’re not seen to be. I think everyone has been working pretty hard and this one, after 20 years, is recognizable if that makes sense.

The Peter & Paul Snowden trained Shooting to Win has emerged as the second favorite at $6 in both Ladbrokes and BetEasy. Peter opined that the race won’t be a ‘one-horse race’. “He’s going to 1600m for the first time but we are very confident he will run it right out,” said Peter.

The Tony Gollan trained Looks Like The Cat has emerged as the third favorite at $7. The horse’s part-owner Troy Schmidt opined that the horse has a fighting chance for tomorrow’s race. “We certainly haven’t seen the best of Looks Like The Cat and hopefully he is still on his merry way forward,” said Schmidt.

Meanwhile, the Gai Waterhouse trained Almalad is the fourth favorite at $7.50 and the trainer seems to be fully behind her speedster. “He will show everyone how good he is,” Waterhouse said.
