CAULFIELD R8 - Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes (1400 METRES):
TRACK & WEATHER
Track: Good 4.
Weather: Mostly sunny, top of 19 degrees with the possibility of 30km/h westerly winds come late afternoon.

Fell Swoop on his bike early from 12 to sit outside the leader or potentially go on with it whilst 13. Holbein will likely to be wide throughout from 16 as he'll push on. Not sure where this leaves 9. Moss 'n' Dale in 12 but he could be flushed out by 16.
