A full field of 18 starters and four emergencies are accepted to face off in the $3 million Group 1 Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup (2400m) this Saturday including four mares, three of which are guaranteed a start, taking on the boys in the staying showdown.

One of those, looking to become the first Caulfield Cup winning mare since Southern Speed (2011), is also the dominant favourite in Caulfield Cup betting with Lucia Valentina paying $4.80 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Kerrin McEvoy stays on the Kris Lees-trained Newcastle galloper having ridden the Savabeel four-year-old for all three of her runs this time in.

Lucia Valentina has won two of those including the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 4 and is now out to become the first Tunbull Stakes – Caulfield Cup double winner since Elvstroem (2004).

Despite the bumper field full of staying talent there is just one other runner at single figures to take out he Caulfield Cup bragging rights this year with Bande at $9.

The first Japanese representation in the race since 2006, French jockey Christope Lemaire has the ride on this well fancied raider who carries 56.5kg giving Lucia Valentina a three and a half kilo advantage.

One of two horses from Japan in the mix this year along with the 58kg top weight Admire Rakti ($11), Bande led all the way last time out on August 10 back home to win a Listed race over 2600m by five lengths on the back of two good third place efforts.

The next best in betting at $11 are the aforementioned Admire Rakti who defeated Bande two back when the duo ran second and third behind Gold Ship in the Hansh Daishoten and Dandino.

Prepared by Marco Botti, UK stayer Dandino is back after a close second to Fawkner in last year’s Caulfield Cup after which he ran fifth in the Melbourne Cup over the two miles at Flemington.

12 months ago Dandino carried 56.5kg in the Caulfield Cup from barrier 16 and this year he only goes up half a kilo to 57kg with barriers pending.

Three horses then come in as $13 chances with the Chris Waller-trained Who Shot Thebarman, stable mate Junoob and New Zealand mare Rising Romance.

Yamanin Vital six-year-old Who Shot Thebarman won this year’s Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) back in New Zealand for his former trainer before being transferred to Waller’s care in Sydney.

For Waller he’s had four runs for two wins including the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m) on October 4 at Flemington carrying 57.5kg, the 55kg on Saturday then including a 1.5kg penalty for that effort.

Also a Group 1 winner is Junoob who took out the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) in Sydney last time out with 58kg earning a 1.5kg penalty to bring him still only to 55.5kg for the Caulfield Cup on Saturday.

Rising Romance meanwhile also won over the Caulfield Cup distance in Sydney when taking out the ATC Oaks as a three-year-old in the autumn.

She gets in on 53kg for Saturday on the back of a second behind another of Waller’s four Caulfield Cup chances, Moriarty ($26), in the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) at Randwick a fortnight ago.

The only other runners under $20 in the latest Caulfield Cup betting markets are then Waller’s fourth hope Hawkspur ($17), the Clarry Conners-trained mare Dear Demi ($17) who ran third in the race last year and Big Memory ($17) who got in with a Herbert Power win her last Saturday.
