The Group 3 David Jones Cup (2000m) is one of the supporting stayers races on Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday, October 18. Many of the runners will be looking to increase their position in the 2014 Emirates Melbourne Cup nominations, and earn a place for the November 4 race.

Headlining the field is the Peter Gelagotis-trained Mourinho, who will back-up from Sunday’s Listed Cranbourne Cup (2025m), which he won by just a neck.

The gelding has had a successful spring racing preparation, placing in all four of his starts since August, which includes a runner-up finish in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) and a minor placing in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m), both of which he lost to The Cleaner.

The nominations are full of talented horses however, with Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) third Brambles also declaring for the David Jones Cup.

The Peter Moody in-form gelding has also had a great spring campaign, coming second in the Listed Heatherlie Handicap (1700m) as well as winning the Spring Is The Season Handicap (1700m).

The trainer also entered Kenjorwood for Saturday’s race who has won three of his five minor starts this year, and placed second in the other two.

The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Stipulate is another big name entry after failing to place in the Turnbull Stakes his last time out.

The training duo have also declared Extra Zero and Jacquinto Bay for the 2014 David Jones Cup.

Top Sydney trainer Chris Waller is dually represented by Lucky Chappy from Ireland and Vilanova from New Zealand, who came third in the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) his last time out.

Saturday’s Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) runner-up Signoff could also back-up the following weekend after being nominated by trainer Darren Weir.

The gelding has been dually nominated for the Caulfield Cup the same day, but is unlikely to make its final field released Tuesday afternoon.

Slow Pace, who missed out on a placing in the Craven Plate by less than half a length, is nominated for trainer Kris Lees who’s Lucia Valentina is favourite in the 2014 Caulfield Cup odds.

The John O’Shea-trained Contributer also received a nomination after placing in seven of his nine career starts, including four wins.
