One race out from the marquee event, the 2010 Caulfield Cup, Race 7 at Caulfield Racecourse today will be the $125,000 Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) set to start at 3:20pm (AEDST).
The 2010 David Jones Cup final field features plenty of talented stayers, six less than the original acceptors following the scratching of #2 Red Ruler, #3 Dealer Principal, #11 Pacino, #14 Laristan, #16 Gotta Keep Cool and #19 Zantelagh.
The hot favourite to win the David Jones Cup today is Peter Snowden’s mare Purple, currently paying $2.80 through Ladbrokes.com.au.
Due to be ridden by Mark Zahara, who took out the Norman Robinson Stakes earlier today aboard top colt Retrieve, Purple is ideally drawn midfield and is a runner that loves the soft ground.
With a great Heavy track record and super consistent form this spring, Purple is also our favourite here at Races.com.au in the David Jones Cup field.

The other eye-catcher in Race 7 at Caulfield today is Rainbow Styling.
The Hawkes-trained Zabeel gelding is a bred stayer suited to the conditions at the track.
Coming off good form including a win in the Naturalism Stakes at this track and distance last month and also finishing a gallant second to Precedence in the JRA Cup last start, Rainbow Styling could cause an upset at a juicy price through Ladbrokes.com.au.
