Yesterday the 2010 Caulfield Cup Field of Acceptors was released, the 18-horse final field featuring the likes of Melbourne Cup winner Shocking, Japanese stayer Tokai Trick, Hong Kong’s Mr Medici and last minute inclusions Alcopop and Herculian Prince.
The chances of the quality field of stayers on Saturday relies heavily on the barriers drawn, with the Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au to be released after the draw.
For the first time in Caulfield Cup history, the connections of the hopeful horses got to select their own barriers for their runners.
