The Melbourne Mail - April 21

Caulfield provides a meeting loaded with obvious favourites on Saturday. A pure battleground between bookmakers and punters.
Set weights conditions for several of the valuable Vobis races leave the best performed horses looking extremely well placed with Nature Strip, Cliff's Edge and Kiwia all in the red or close enough to it in early betting.
The favourite that we see the most juice in is one we benefited from a couple of weeks ago at Bendigo in Land Of Plenty.
He won well at Bendigo, letting down strongly off a steady gallop, and again his run left us walking away thinking there was plenty more to come for the new yard.
His closing splits were strong and it could be a case of Bendigo being a bonus win on the way back to his peak with ratings from the past still well clear of what he produced last time. He can win again.
Rich Charm is another well placed and an obvious market leader for bookmakers and punters to go head to head over and we are no knock on him or his early price, but one that appeals as a good each way gamble away from the top of the market is Prussian Vixen.
Prussian Vixen is a bit hit and miss, and she arrives here off a couple of misses, but her recent hits have been at Caulfield - all at big odds.
The form around those wins is solid and so are the figures that she has run on those days. One positive angle for her this weekend is that all the major players ahead of her in the market are best ridden with a sit. She'll lead them all and it will be no shock to see her make the most of things if slipped too much rope.
