Hawkspur has been the 2013 Caulfield Cup favourite since his dominant three and a half lengths victory in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick in September but the Purrealist gelding has been on the drift since the barrier draw was conducted earlier this weekend.

Veteran jockey Jim Cassidy does not believe the outside barrier will be a problem for Hawkspur, although he struggled from a wide gate on Glencadam Gold in last year’s race, and remains full of confidence that the four-year-old can give him his 100th Group 1 victory.

The fact that Hawkspur’s Caulfield Cup odds are now out to $5 means that punters at Ladbrokes.com.au can receive double figure odds on the favourite thanks to the leading online bookies Double The Odds offer!

Royal Descent was the market mover in 2013 Caulfield Cup betting markets earlier in the week and was as short at $6.50 yesterday but overnight has gotten back out to Caulfield Cup odds of $7.

The Redoute’s Choice mare is expected to get a fabulous run into the race from an inside gate and is returning to 2400 metres for the first time since her dominant ten lengths victory over Group 1 winners Dear Demi and Gondokoro in the Australian Oaks (2400m).

The biggest overnight market mover in Caulfield Cup betting markets is talented New Zealand mare Silent Achiever who is now into odds of $7.50 after being available at double figure odds earlier in the week.

The daughter of O’Reilly is yet to taste success at Group 1 level in Australia but finished a narrow second behind Fiveandahalfstar in the Group 1 The BMW (2400m) during the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival earlier this year and won the New Zealand Derby over the same distance.

Another big push has come for imported stayer Jet Away who has only had one run this preparation but has recorded two wins from three starts in Australia including a victory at Caulfield in the Group 3 Easter Cup (2000m).

The Cape Cross entire is now into Caulfield Cup odds of $9.50 but is available at Ladbrokes.com.au at the amazing quote of $19.
