2010 Caulfield Cup Betting Odds Update Following Barrier Draw

This morning the barrier draw for the 2010 Caulfield Cup, due to light up the Caulfield track this Saturday, took place and the updated betting markets for the $2.5 million showdown have been released.

Following the controversial Caulfield Cup barrier draw that saw three of the four emergencies come out early and secure favourable draws, leading online bookie Sportsbet have installed Metal Bender as the favourite to win.

The Chris Waller-trained Metal Bender came up trumps with an ideal barrier two draw and is now at the top of the Caulfield Cup odds paying $6.

Previously Jake Stephens’ gallant Yalumba Stakes runner-up Alcopop was one of the top Caulfield Cup fancies paying $6.50, but after suffering a blow drawing the far outside barrier the six-year-old has drifted out to $10 at Sportsbet.

Mark Kavanagh’s Melbourne Cup champ Shocking has surged into second favouritism for the Caulfield Cup, drawn in barrier 12 Shocking is likely to come into barrier nine with the withdrawal of the emergencies and is paying $6.50 to win.

The other horse that improved their claims in the Caulfield showdown with a good draw was Gai Waterhouse’s recent winner of the Group 1 The Metropolitan Herculian Prince.

Five-year-old Herculian Prince drew barrier six and weighted at just 53.5kg is a real lightweight chance, slashed into $7 at Sportsbet.

Cups King Bart Cummings is vying for his seventh Caulfield Cup victory on Saturday, his second on the trot following his win with Viewed last year, and has two of his star mares lining up.

Faint Perfume and Dariana drew beside each other in gates seven and eight respectively, the solid starting positions making them great value picks currently paying $9 and $10 to win.

The other top value Caulfield Cup bet looks to be Luca Cumani’s international raider Manighar at a price of $13.

Five-year-old British stayer Manighar drew gate three and is a top performer in the wet, which looks to be the case at Caulfield on Saturday, meaning he is well poised to cause an upset.
