Pre-Barrier Draw Caulfield Cup 2013 Odds

The 2013 Caulfield Cup final field has been released and although the barrier draw will not take place until tomorrow there has already been plenty of action in Caulfield Cup betting markets.

The Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday and is set to be a very open betting race; with plenty of value on offer throughout the field.

The  barrier draw is sure to have some impact on the market but in recent times the importance of drawing an inside barrier has been overstated – champion French stayer Dunaden won the 2012 edition of the race from barrier 18 while three of the past four winners have jumped from double digit barriers.

In saying that, the prices of most of the leading chances are sure to be effected one way or the other by tomorrow’s barrier draw so if you see a price that you like you can lock it in tonight.

The four most fancied runners in 2013 Caulfield Cup betting markets before the barrier draw are:

  • Hawkspur ($4.50) – The Chris Waller-trained gelding has done nothing wrong this preparation, including an emphatic win in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m), and will have no problem running out the 2400 metres of the Caulfield Cup after winning the Group 1 Queensland Derby earlier this spring.
  • Dandino ($6) – The only European-trained runner in the final field has been extremely well backed after producing a series of impressive trackwork performances at the International Equine Centre at Werribee since arriving in Australia.
  • Royal Descent ($8.50) – The Redoute’s Choice mare won the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) by a dominant ten lengths in the spring and based on her impressive string of performances this campaign will relish the step back up to 2400 metres in the Caulfield Cup.
  • Silent Achiever ($9) – The classy Kiwi mare hasn’t won for almost a year but ran home strongly in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) and trainer Roger James is confident that the five-year-old is better suited to the handicap conditions of the Caulfield Cup.

Gai Waterhouse-trained Julienas ($21) has been the backed runner in the past twenty-four hours after he was awarded the final position in the field by the Melbourne Racing Club, while imported stayers Jet Away ($11) and Moriarty ($21) have also found plenty of support.
