2016 Caulfield Cup Odds Update: Sir Isaac Newton Firms

Aidan O’Brien’s Irish raider Sir Isaac Newton is the early Caulfield Cup 2016 betting market mover following the release of Caulfield Cup barriers on Tuesday for the weekend’s staying classic.

Barriers for all 20 acceptors, 18 of which are guaranteed a start in the $3 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m), were drawn yesterday and Sir Issac Newton was one of the big winners.

Prepared by Cox Plate winning horseman O’Brien, the five-year-old Galileo stallion came up with barrier nine, which has produced more Caulfield Cup winners than any other gate since 1983.

The last Caulfield Cup champion to jump from barrier nine was Railings (2005) and money is coming for Sir Isaac Newton to be the next and continue the good recent record of overseas-trained horses in the mile and a half showdown.

Three of the past four Caulfield Cup winners were trained outside of Australia with: Mongolian Khan (NZ, 2015), Admire Rakti (JPN, 2014) and Dunaden (FR, 2012).

Last seen running a disappointing 10th in the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes (2012m) carrying 60.5kg on September 10, Sir Isaac Newton is tipped to improve sharply in his Australian debut.

He gets out over 2400m for the first time since his fourth to Highland Reel in the Group 1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot in July and also drops notably in weight down to 55kg.

Irish hoop Colm O’Donoghue travels over for the Caulfield Cup ride and the good gate has seen Sir Isaac Newton firm in from $13 to $11 in the latest Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Firm favourite in those Caulfield Cup betting markets at $3.40 is the Ciaron Maher-trained Jameka who jumps from barrier 13.

Maher chases his first Caulfield Cup win and his other two chances in the field this season also drew poorly with Set Square to jump from the outside barrier and Pemberley also wide in 17.

“This race is one of the big three that we all dream of as a trainer to win,” Maher said post-Caulfield Cup barrier draw on Tuesday.

“Hopefully one of my three can do the job.”

Also firming after the Caulfield Cup barriers in from $8 to $7.50 is another of the international raiders, Scottish who drew ideally in gate seven.

Prepared by British horseman Charlie Appleby for the powerhouse Godolphin stable, the Teofilo five-year-old has had two starts over the Caulfield Cup distance for two seconds.

Scottish has Kerrin McEvoy aboard for his first run down under on Saturday, McEvoy chasing his second Caulfield Cup win after the success aboard the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained raider All The Good back in 2008.

Occupying the third line of the updated Caulfield Cup odds are German raider Articus and the Darren Weir-trained mare Real Love at $8 each.

Areion stallion Articus is prepared by 2014 Melbourne Cup winning trainer Andreas Wohler and is out over 2400m for the first time from barrier 11 with Zac Purton aboard.

Purton is after his second win in three years after guiding the Japanese raider Admire Ratki to victory in 2014 and Articus looks well-weighted getting in on just 53kg this year.

That is the lightest weight the galloper, a winner of four of his nine career starts, has ever carted and a big drop back from 60kg last time out when fifth in Group 1 company over 2000m in Germany on July 31.

Real Love meanwhile carries just 52.5kg with Craig Williams riding the last start JRA Cup winner from gate 11.
