Scheduled to run as Caulfield Race 8 at 4:05pm (EDT), the Caulfield Cup field 2011 is a controversial one with many of the original contenders high up the order of entry not accepted.
Caulfield Cup betting markets at Luxbet are clearly lead by the Mark Kavanagh-trained December Draw, who after coming up with barrier 11 – moving into nine without the emergencies – has maintained their $2.30 favouritisim.
Adding interest to the Caulfield Cup field this year are the four internationally-trained contenders, the largest number of overseas raiders in the race’s history.
The shortest-priced of these is the John Moore-trained Hong Kong hopeful Mighty High who will carry the No. 1 saddlecloth as the 57kg Caulfield Cup top-weight.
Mighty High is paying $13 in the Caulfield Cup odds at Luxbet after drawing the rails.
Many are predicting the overseas form to stack up in this year’s Caulfield Cup, bringing into contention the Luca Cumani-trained duo of Drunken Sailor and Manighar who are both at a quote of $21 through Luxbet, as well as Brian Ellison’s British raider Saptapadi who has firmed in from $51 to $26 after coming up trumps with gate six in the Caulfield Cup barrier draw yesterday.
Can December Draw continue their dominance in Australia and silence the critics that question their ability over the 2400 meters?
