Glencadam Gold Tops Latest Caulfield Cup 2012 Odds

Gai Waterhouse’s piping hot import Glencadam Gold has skyrocketed to the top of the 2012 Caulfield Cup odds after their breakthrough Group 1 victory in The Metropolitan in Sydney over the weekend.

Glencadam Gold

The Metropolitan winner Glencadam Gold is new favourite for the Caulfield Cup 2012

Retaining their undefeated status down under the four-year-old Refuse To Bend gelding, formerly prepared in the UK by Sir Henry Cecil, has burst into calculations for the $2.65 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 20 winning their last four on the trot.

Their last run in England before making the journey to Australia to join Waterhouse’s Tulloch Lodge operation was a disappointing 10th over 2017m at Newbury 12 months ago.

Aussie punters however have seen a very different horse with Glencadam Gold first catching the eye with a no metro win at Canterbury in mid-August.

From there they quickly rose through the ranks winning the Listed Premier’s Cup (1800m) at Rosehill and then the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) which earned them a weight penalty for the 2012 Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.

Over the weekend however Glencadam Gold enjoyed their biggest turf triumph to date with a runaway victory in the Group 1 The Metropolitan over the Caulfield Cup distance (2400m) at Randwick, the winner putting an easy four lengths on their closest rival Kelinni.

That win saw Glencadam Gold move up from 52nd on the order of entry to equal 21st putting them right on the cusp of a Caulfield Cup run.

The bookies are convinced that Glencadam Gold’s impressive The Metropolitan win proved their Caulfield Cup potential and the galloper, who was as long as $31 in the Caulfield Cup odds at bookmaker.com.au after their Newcastle victory, is now the clear $4.50 favourite.

Second favourite in the Caulfield Cup betting markets at $9 is then the Mark Kavanagh-trained December Draw, beaten favourite when breaking down during last year’s Caulfield Cup, who ran an eye-catching third in both the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) and Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at their two most recent runs.

The Lloyd Williams-owned Galileo four-year-old Seville then occupies the third line at $11 as one of the big market movers following their close fourth when beaten less than half a length by stablemate Green Moon in the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

There are four other horses under $20 in the markets with Turnbull winner Green Moon ($17), Peter Moody’s import Voila Ici ($17) who crossed fourth in the Turnbull, 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain ($18) and reigning Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed ($18) who has been confirmed to defend her title despite finishing 15th of 16th in the Turnbull in a career worst from the smart South Australian mare.

“The vet’s gone over her and can find nothing wrong,” co-trainer Leon Macdonald said.

“She ate up well last night.

“The track was firm and she may have jarred slightly but that’s not an excuse for what was by far her worst ever run.

“We’ll press on regardless. It’s onwards and upwards and we’ll see if I can turn her around.”

2012 Caulfield Cup third acceptances are due to be taken by Racing Victoria tomorrow, Tuesday October 9.
