Hawk Island Can Win 2011 Caulfield Cup Despite No Rain

He’s a horse with undoubted toughness and the ability to mix it with just about any stayer in the country and Hawk Island is a genuine chance at winning the 2011 Caulfield Cup tomorrow afternoon at Caulfield Racecourse.

He’s a horse that’s been overlooked by plenty of people and trainer Chris Waller has been able to fly pretty much under the radar leading up to the $2.5 million dollar event.

We’ve spotted him though and his lead up runs shows he’s just about ready to fire this weekend.

His last two races have been solid finishing second in both the Bacardi Hill Stakes behind Trusting and The Metropolitan behind The Verminator.

Most importantly for the seven year old is that they’ve come on good and dead tracks respectively, a vital point for a horse often pegged as only a mud runner.

He will have Glyn Schofield in the saddle and from gate 10 after emergencies come out he could jag a spot mid field.

If any rain falls over Caulfield it will no doubt be an advantage but on recent form he gives an indication that maybe it’s not compulsory.

If he gets across the ground Hawk Island is a real value chance for the 2011 Caulfield Cup with Luxbet.

Current fixed price odds have him listed at an appealing $26 fixed price.
