The feature race is the $2,500,000 Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) that is set to be run with its compete 18 horse field; with emergencies Forgotten Voice, Sneak A Peek, Ibicenco and Oasis Bloom the only withdrawals.

Connections of Forgotten Voice brought the veteran stayer out to Australia to contest the Caulfield Cup and Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) but were denied a position in the 2013 Caulfield Cup field after the Melbourne Racing Club awarded the final spot to The Metropolitan runner-up Julienas ($21).

The only major scratching on the 2013 Caulfield Cup Day card is imported stayer Gris Caro who was set to start favourite in the Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m).

Gris Caro made his Australian debut with an impressive victory in the Balaklava Cup but was found with swelling in his fetlock yesterday morning and will have x-rays taken this afternoon; with a possible tilt at the Melbourne Cup through the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) on Victoria Derby Day now in doubt.

Thankfully none of the stayers in the Caulfield Cup field have had the same problem and all eighteen runners will take their place in the field – with Double The Odds available on every single runner with Ladbrokes.com.au.

This means that the favourite Hawkspur is available at the incredible Caulfield Cup odds of $10, while the other fancies Royal Descent and Silent Achiever are being offered at $14 and $15 respectively.
