Will Unchain My Heart Conjure a Massive 2014 Caulfield Cup Upset?

Initially confirmed as third emergency for this weekend’s feature race, the scratching of leading Japanese stayer Bande has allowed Unchain My Heart to secure a berth in the 2014 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

Securing a credible total of ten race win and a further 13 minor places over her well-trialled 57 start career so far, Unchain My Heart found good form over the late spring/summer of 2013 and autumn of this year, highlighted by notable black type results.

Steadily building to the task in finishing eighth in the Group 2 Momentum Energy Stakes (2000m) and fourth in a minor amongst classy competition over 2000m on November 30th, the Al Maher mare ran on for third following an early check in the Listed Werribee Cup (2600m) on December 15th before running fourth in the Listed Bagot Handicap (2800m) at Flemington on new year’s day.

Returning to the paddock after finishing second in the William Newton Handicap (2600m) and winning the Listed Andrew Ramsden Stakes (3200m) on May 24th, Unchain My Heart has continued to impressive in running third in the Legacy Badge Appeal Handicap (2000m), fourth in the Craig Opie Cup (2500m) and a credible third in the Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) most notably over five starts this time in.

Allocated barrier 14 and confirmed to be partnered by notable jockey Stephen Baster, the eight-year-old mare has been charged with carrying just 52kgs in the 2014 Caulfield Cup.

Figuring as one of only three mares remaining in the final field for the 2014 Caulfield Cup following Dear Demi’s scratching, is Unchain My Heart capable of taking out the featured event, or will one of her classy rivals find the line in the clear?
