The final race of the day at Caulfield is the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes. Run over 1100m, a field of 10 classy sprinters has been assembled, with Greyworm the favourite in a very open race. The favourite is likely to lead, with How Womantic and Sword Of Mercy likely to be handy.

Garner profiles as the right horse to win this race first-up off a 13 week freshen up. The four-year-old gelding has finished in the quinella 10 times in his fourteen start career and rarely runs a bad race which is positive for punters. He is a winner at Caulfield and has won fresh before which is a plus. From gate 2 under Craig Williams, he will be on the back of a moderate tempo and can get home over the top of them.

Greyworm is a touch under-priced at the top bookmakers, but he certainly will be in it for a long way. Drawn gate 5 under Jordan Childs, he will be up rolling along on the speed and should be able to tough it out for a fair way. He has had just the one run at Caulfield for a third, and he is a terrific fresh horse with three wins from five first-up runs. He has won two trials leading into this, and was only beaten 3L by The Everest winner Classique Legend in his only run in the Spring.

Causeway Girl could be a knockout hope here for punters who like a bit of value. The Clinton McDonald-trained mare was very close to winning last start at Listed level at this track when 0.1L off All Banter over 1000m. Glen Boss stays aboard and will be punching through along the rails from the inside gate. She will have to go to another level, but she runs well without winning at Caulfield and gets a weight advantage over most of these.
