Caulfield Cup Form 2017: Two Words On Each Horse

As always a host of Melbourne Cup bound long distance specialists compete in the opening leg of the Spring Cups double, the Group 1 $3.15 million BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) set to run as Caulfield Race 8 at 4:30pm (AEDT).

The 17 Caulfield Cup horses come from far and wide including Ireland where the Aidan O’Brien-trained favourite Johannes Vermeer ($4.40) hails from.

His Australian debut in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Classic (2000m) at the track was outstanding for a fast-finishing second and the quick back-up is a non-issue for this well-drawn top fancy who will be ridden positive from barrier two.

Betting on the Caulfield Cup 2017 through Ladbrokes.com.au lists the dangers as the Darren Weir-trained top weight Humidor ($8), cleared-to-run Kiwi mare Bonneval ($8), the rails-drawn Harlem ($9.50) and last start The Bart Cummings winning mare Amelie’s Star ($9).

With the first of the ‘Big 3’ spring majors fast approaching we’ve sorted the genuine Caulfield Cup contenders from the pretenders summing up the chances of all the runners in just two words so you can clean-up at Ladbrokes.com.au.
