The Wolf’s Best Bet gets out to 2000m at Caulfield. Here are Wednesday’s racing tips.


One time Victoria Derby favourite Alcyone has gone to a new level this prep and looks ideally placed here third up. A surprise first up winner at Sandown, he proved it was no fluke with a terrific last start second at Flemington behind Mr Brightside, who looks a star in the making. 2000m here looks ideal and he draws perfectly in barrier five.
Recommended Price: $2.60
Confidence Level: 4.5/5


Capital Legend was enormous at his first run back from a spell and should be too good here. Despite being first up for more than year and over a longer trip. With that run under his belt he should have improved enormously and looks well placed against a similar field.
Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 4/5

Gracilistya was terrific last time on the Kensington track after being caught three and four wide without cover throughout last start. She hit the front early and was entitled to tire late, but stuck on well to only get beaten just over three lengths. With even luck here she looks clearly the one to beat.
Recommended Price: $2.60
Confidence Level: 4/5

Hinged comes off a second placing in the Flight Stakes and suspect that is the right form, especially with the winner running so well in the Spring Champion last week. The time was solid too. The tempo here looks genuine which should suit Hinged, she will just need some luck from the draw.
Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 4/5

Lady Brook is having her first start for Joe Pride and given the local horseman’s ability to improve horses that come into his stable, she should be hard to beat here. The mare has placed three times in town so if Pride can extract that bit extra – and her recent good trial suggested he can – she should be a city winner before long.
Recommended Price: $6.00
Confidence Level: 3/5
