Timeform Australian SmartPlays: Caulfield, Saturday September 22

Caulfield Racecourse.

Timeform put forward their three best bets on Saturday's card at Caulfield...

"The New Zealand mare Zurella looks a step ahead of the handicapper today coming off a terrific return win..."

Speedy mare Kulgrinda flies fresh and appeals as being very well placed when she kicks off her spring campaign in the fourth at Caulfield today over 1100m. It took the talented Bel Sprinter to gun her down resuming last preparation but there is nothing of his class engaged here and she should prove too slick.

The Naturalism Stakes is always a hotly contested handicap as it provides a ticket to the Caulfield Cup. The New Zealand mare Zurella looks a step ahead of the handicapper today coming off a terrific return win and can stamp herself as a genuine Caulfield Cup hope by winning today.

Eighteen mares line up in the last and the big field should generate a strong tempo throughout. That suits the talented Soft Sand who is drawn to get an ideal run in behind the speed and, if produced at the right time, her big turn of foot can see her come out on top.
