Is Dandino Worth A Caulfield Cup Bet?

European-trained stayer Dandino has been one of the biggest drifters in 2013 Caulfield Cup betting markets since the barrier draw was conducted yesterday morning.

Dandino was backed into 2013 Caulfield Cup odds as short as $6 but is now out to $10; with punters deserting the Marco Botti-trained entire after he drew barrier nineteen.

Outside barriers have not been a problem in recent editions of the Caulfield Cup, with three of the past four winners winning the race from a double figure barrier, and Dandino will have one of the best in the business on his back in Craig Williams – who is chasing his third straight win in the Caulfield Cup after winning with Southern Speed and Dunaden.

Can Dandino follow in the footsteps of Dunaden, All The Good and Taufan’s Melody and win the Caulfield Cup for Europe or will he be another international flop?

Why Dandino Can Win The 2013 Caulfield Cup

  • Has an excellent record at 2400 metres and has the turn-of-foot required to be competitive at Group 1 level in Australia.
  • His trackwork at the International Equine Centre at Werribee has been very impressive.
  • Recorded a tough win in his last start in the United States St Leger.

Why Dandino Won’t Win The 2013 Caulfield Cup

  • Yet to record a victory at Group 1 level after six attempts at the highest level of racing.
  • Has not won in four previous starts outside of the United Kingdom.
  • European-trained stayers have only been successful in the Caulfield Cup on three occasions.
