Can Jet Away Give Oliver A 5th Caulfield Cup?

Imported stayer Jet Away has had an interrupted preparation to the Group 1 2013 Caulfield Cup(2400m) but with Damien Oliver on board remains one of the fancied runners in the $2.5 million event at Caulfield on Saturday.

Jet Away will be having just the second start of his 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaign in the Caulfield Cup on Saturday.

Jet Away has had just one run this preparation; finishing seventh in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) after missing out on runs in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m).

Trainer David Hayes and owner Douglas Taylor both believe Jet Away will be suited by this European style preparation but will the Cape Cross entire be good enough to give Oliver a record-tying fifth Caulfield Cup victory?

 Why Jet Away Can Win The 2013 Caulfield Cup

  • Tough stayer who will relish his first opportunity over 2400 metres in Australia.
  • Has recorded two wins from three starts in Australia, including a win at Caulfield in the Group 3 Easter Cup (2000m).
  • Damien Oliver has won the Caulfield Cup on four previous occasions with Mannerism (1992), Paris Lane (1994), Doriemus (1995) and Sky Heights (1999).
  • Will improve from his stellar first-up run in the Turnbull Stakes.
  • David Hayes has previously won the Caulfield Cup with imported stayer Tawqeet in 2006 and Fraar in 1993.

Why Jet Away Won’t Win The 2013 Caulfield Cup

  • Missed a key lead-up run due to injury and will be going into the Caulfield Cup second-up.
  • Is unproven at Group 1 level.
  • Will need a bit of luck from barrier 13.
  • Has never previously raced in such a large field – did most his racing in the United Kingdom against small fields.
