Timeform Australian SmartPlays: Caulfield, February 23

Caulfield plays host to some excellent racing on Saturday.

Timeform's Australian team suggest three bets on Caulfield's fantastic Saturday card...

"German import Mawingo surprised somewhat with his bold effort first up over 1400m in the Orr Stakes behind All Too Hard, running close to the peak of his form, and he's sure to prove better placed out to 1800m today..."

The MRC Members will be out in force cheering for their filly Members Joy when she steps out in the Angus Armanasco Stakes (02:20) and the daughter of Hussonet looks set to give them plenty to cheer about. Narrow defeat in the Kevin Hayes last time came in strong figures and she should build on that form out to 1400m now. It's a skinny renewal of the race and getting 2/1 or better appeals as a worthy gamble.  

The Derby winner Fiveandahalfstar has had the beating of Super Cool in each of two meetings to this point but on each of those occasions he has had the run of things and fancy the tables can be turned in the Autumn Classic (03:00) this afternoon. The tactics of the maiden winners, Sea Of Choice and Luck's A Fortune, are to prove all-important with that pair the most likely to keep Fiveandahalfstar honest up on the speed. Super Cool's Vase win in the spring is seen as the best piece of form on offer here and if settling within striking distance of Fiveandahalfstar he gets his chance to turn the tables. 

German import Mawingo surprised somewhat with his bold effort first up over 1400m in the Orr Stakes behind All Too Hard, running close to the peak of his form, and he's sure to prove better placed out to 1800m today in the Peter Young Stakes (03:40). Wasn't a great deal between him and Mr Moet there but Mawingo is the one with greater upside coming off that run and if returning to his peak form here should land the prize. Happy to play him currently trading at 2.68/5
