Ventura Storm has dominated Caulfield Cup 2017 betting over race day morning with the Lindsay Park-trained import emerging as the genuine market mover.

Of the 17 stayers facing off in the Group 1 $3.15 million BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) this afternoon at 4:30pm (AEDT), it is progressive Zoffany entire Ventura Storm that the punters are coming for.

After opening at $13 in Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au to break his maiden status down under, the five-year-old is now nearing a single-figure quote into $10.

Earlier the Races.com.au team revealed Ventura Storm as the horse to lock in at the top of Caulfield Cup Trifecta Bets and it seems there are plenty of fans getting on board.

Jockey Damien Oliver chases his fifth Caulfield Cup win and his first since success aboard Sky Heights back in 1999.

Ventura Storm was a Group 1 winner over the distance (2400m) in Italy around this time last year and has had four subsequent runs for the David Hayes-led stable since arriving in Australia.

The latest saw him finish second best behind the world’s best, Winx, in Flemington’s Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at WFA and he looks drawn and weighted to return to winning form today.

Race favourite in Caulfield Cup betting is the Aidan O’Brien-trained Johannes Vermeer, the Ladbrokes Stakes runner-up from last weekend drifting out from $4.40 to $4.80 over the past 24 hours.

The other big drift in the markets has been on the Darren Weir-trained The Bart Cummings winning mare Amelie’s Star out from $6.50 to $10.

She has some work to do from barrier 13, but is well-weighted carrying just 51kg with Craig Williams in the saddle.

Amelie’s Star though remains the shortest-priced of the Caulfield Cup horses to win the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) over the two miles on Tuesday November 7 at Flemington.

Weir’s other runner is the 56kg top weight Humidor also easing out from $6.50 to $8.50 to improve on the lead-up third in the Turnbull Stakes when Ventura Storm had his measure.

The only other single-figure fancy for this afternoon is the Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman-trained mare Bonneval at $7.

She was under a cloud of doubt for much of the week after suffering from leg lacerations and lameness after running sixth as the beaten favourite in the Ladbrokes Stakes last weekend.

Co-trainer Baker has remained confident of the Makfi mare’s fitness and soundness throughout the drama however as has hoop Kerrin McEvoy jumping on the gun four-year-old for the first time in the Caulfield Cup field.
