Betting for the 2018 Group 1 $700,000 Altus...
The final race to finish up the action of the Caulfield Cup Day meeting is Race 10 – the $70,000 Carlton Draught Plate (1100m) set to jump at 5:30pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Carlton Draught Plate for fillies and mares originally attracted a capacity field of runners, but the Heavy track conditions at Caulfield saw a number of scratchings this morning with: #1 Solchow, #4 Sunday Rose, #5 Avionics, #6 Miss Octopussy, #8 Logan’s Choice, #9 Fabulist, #10 Little Gem, #15 Cat’s Pyjamas, #17 Ratatat Lass and #19 Masai Miss all ruled out.
There are now just 10 starters left for the closing Caulfield race today, with the betting markets and punters heavily favouring Varenna Miss backed into $2.70 at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Originally the last emergency, Tony Noonan’s well-bred Redoute’s Choice filly Varenna Miss is now the odds-on favourite after an eye-catching first up win last start.
But the Races.com.au have selected another longer-priced runner to cause an upset in the Carlton Draught Plate today with #3 Netra a prime pick at generous odds.

Drawn on the inside won’t be a problem for this Warrnambool-based galloper, the Testa Rossa mare having no real issues in the wet.
Netra is coming off a last start second at Moonee Valley and looks a prime pick with Nick Hall in the mount.
