At Caulfield this afternoon, there’s a race which could really give punters a leg up for a big pay day on Sunday.
Well, it’s the Gr 2 Herbert Power and the toppie, the popular PRINCE OF ARRAN who ran an eye-catching 3rd in the same race last year, returns to battle again.
And here’s where the wonderful international world of horse racing collides.
Back in July, Prince Of Arran ventured to Glorious Goodwood and ran in the Gr 3 Glorious Stakes over 2412m.
He was up on the speed most of the way but failed to kick late and ran 5th, behind another international star in DESERT ENCOUNTER.
Now, if Prince Of Arran performs well at Caulfield today, and you have money for Sunday, may I strongly suggest you put that money on Desert Encounter.
He is engaged in the Gr 1 Pattison Canadian International over 2400m at Woodbine. The race is available for wagering on at the TABs and the corporates.
Desert Encounter won this race last year and looks even better coming into it this year.
His get back, run home hard late style is very suited to the long, lush straight of Woodbine.
He beat Prince Of Arran very easily when they met in August.
If the Prince bobs up today, get on Desert Encounter with everything you have.
He is currently considered a $3.50 chance.
