Can Hawkspur Overcome Barrier Woes In The Caulfield Cup 2013?

The Group 1 Caulfield Cup is set to take place at Caulfield Racecourse tomorrow October 19, 2013, and Hawkspur is presently the race favourite to take out the event.

Hawkspur is paying odds of $9.60 thanks to Double The Odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Hawkspur will look to overcome his wide barrier to win the 2013 Caulfield Cup.

The four-year-old has won seven of his 22 race starts and has earned more than $796,000 in prize money.

The Purrealist gelding won the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes by an impressive three and a half lengths at Royal Randwick Racecourse earlier this preparation and will be fifth-up in the 2013 Caulfield Cup.

His most recent start resulted in a close fifth placing in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington, in which he finished just over half a length behind the winner.

Hawkspur’s biggest test will be his wide barrier draw of 16, which will most likely see him jump from gate 14 of 18 once emergencies are taken out.
