2010 Caulfield Cup Day Gets Go Ahead

Following earlier concerns that tomorrow’s Caulfield Cup Day would be abandoned following the heavy rain fall in Melbourne, Racing Victoria and the Melbourne Racing Club have confirmed that the meeting will indeed go ahead with the 2010 Caulfield Cup taking centre stage.

A bumper 10-race card highlighted by the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) was facing cancellation with the rain affected track receiving a Heavy 9 rating earlier this afternoon.

However, punters can now get on with the business of picking the 2010 Caulfield Cup winner from the 18-horse field with Racing Victoria Chief Executive Rob Hines rejecting claims that the race day wouldn’t go ahead.

“At this point in time there is no way that the BMW Caulfield Cup meeting will be transferred or abandoned,” Hines said.

“The track is currently a Heavy 9, but it is safe and in good condition and the forecast is for the inclement weather to ease overnight.

“As per standard procedures, Racing Victoria stewards will inspect the track with Melbourne Racing Club officials in the morning at which time the official rating will be given for tomorrow’s meeting.

“With the weather easing overnight, the wonderful facilities at the Melbourne Racing Club and an outstanding 10 race program headlined by the world’s richest 2400-metre handicap we are looking forward to another magnificent Caulfield Cup meeting.”

The 2010 Caulfield Cup odds have also been affected by the rain fall, with the known wet-trackers and horses with solid form on slow to heavy tracks moving up the betting markets.

A top pick for the Caulfield Cup with the track in its current condition is one-time favourite Alcopop now paying a generous $8.50 at Ladbrokes.com.au, his once ‘horror’ barrier 22 draw now seen as favourable as the six-year-old will be able to avoid the muddy inside running.
