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 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).
