The Offer Will Run in 2014 Caulfield Cup

Following a mass exodus of runners from the Group 1 Crown Golden Ale Caulfield Cup (2400m) field, we can report that Gai Waterhouse’s The Offer will line up.

Dandino and Gris Caro were scratched on Thursday due to injury, Japanese superstar Bande was deemed unfit by stewards on Friday morning, and Dear Demi was withdrawn in the afternoon following a throat infection.

This means that all four emergencies have gained entry to the race.

It was reported that The Offer was undergoing veterinarian checks at the same time as Bande but he has been ruled free to run in the $3 million feature race after being declared fit by Racing Victoria vet Dr Brian Stewart.

“He is good to go, it was an unexplained lameness, that will happen from time to time, it could be a bit of arthritis flaring up or something else, you can see it from time to time,” Dr Stewart told TVN.

“He is back to normal this morning, we did a thorough examintation and can’t find any sign of any issues, we have ticked him off and he is okay.

“Gai called Terry Bailey yesterday to say he was not 100 per cent in her estimation, they had their farrier and their vet look at him, this morning he is pretty much back to normal, that will happen time to time.”

The Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) winner hasn’t had a strong spring campaign following three midfield finishes including coming sixth in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) to Lucia Valentina last time out.

The gelding drew wide in barrier 19 for the Caulfield Cup but will actually start from gate 16 following scratchings, the second-widest barrier.

His price in the Caulfield Cup fixed-price odds at has fluctuated between $26 and $21, but he is currently available for $26.

The market has seen quite a shake-up following the scratching of second-favourite Bande. Brambles ($9) and Lidari ($9.50) have shortened to single figure hopefuls while Lucia Valentina continues to lead at $3.80.

Win $3,000,000 this weekend for just $3 at! All you have to do is correctly pick the winners of each 8 feature races on Caulfield Cup Day and you’ll win the $3 million grand prize.
