The Caulfield Cup is the world’s richest mile and a half handicap and one of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival’s most popular betting races. The classic staying showdown is held in mid-late October at Caulfield Racecourse, three weeks before the running of the famous Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday of November. The Caulfield Cup is one of the possible qualifying races for the Melbourne Cup and a popular Caulfield Cup betting option is to back a horse to completed the coveted Spring Cups double.

Caulfield Cup betting odds open at bookmakers around the country including Ladbrokes.com.au months in advance offering generous all-in prices on possible runners. While these Caulfield Cup odds are generous, if your horse doesn’t make the Caulfield Cup field you don’t get your money back so some punters prefer to wait until the official line-up is released the Tuesday of race week.

Caulfield Cup odds are determined by factors including a horse’s record at the distance (2400m), their lead-up form, barrier draw and Caulfield Cup weight allocation.

International horses are making a stronger impact each season in Australia’s Group 1 races like the Caulfield Cup so overseas raiders often feature high-up the Caulfield Cup betting markets with their prices determined by earlier form in European lead-up races.

2017 Caulfield Cup Betting Tips

The Races.com.au exclusive Caulfield Cup 2017 tips & exotic Caulfield Cup betting selections will be available below the week of the race.

The best Caulfield Cup betting tips each year use the Caulfield Cup form guide as the reference point and consider things like the lead-up runs, distance record, jockey, trainer and barrier of the contender.

Early Caulfield Cup tips include looking at graduates out of the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), which produced five Caulfield Cup winners from 2009 – 2017; back proven stayers with a good 2400m or further race record; and watch the international runners in the mix with Admire Ratki (2014) winning for Japan and Duanden (2012) for France in recent editions of the Caulfield Cup.

Another Caulfield Cup betting tip is to look outside of the favourite. Since Master O’Reilly (2007) just two Caulfield Cup favourites have saluted for the punters with New Zealand galloper Mongolian Khan (2015) and Ciaron Maher’s mare Jameka (2016).

Caulfield Cup Betting Options

There are many different ways to bet on the Caulfield Cup. While some bets – like the Caulfield Cup exotic bets – may be intimidating for a new punter, there are plenty of standard bets which are easy to understand and easy to place.

Win – In a win bet you place a stake on your selection to win the Caulfield Cup. This is a simple bet that offers a great payout when it comes through.

Place – A place bet is a great bet for a novice bettor. In a place bet you select a horse to come first, second or third in the Caulfield Cup – increasing your chances of winning as opposed to a straight win bet, but also paying out less.

Each-Way – An each way bet incorporates two bets on one horse. You will select one horse to either win or place in the Caulfield Cup. This means that if your selection wins you will receive two payouts and still have a chance to collect if your selection comes in second or third.

Caulfield Cup Exotic Bets

For experienced punters Caulfield Cup betting revolves exclusively around exotic bets. These bets involve multiple horses and are a lot more difficult to pull off than the standard Caulfield Cup bets. However, with a little help from our comprehensive guide you will be able to bet on the Caulfield Cup like a pro.

Caulfield Cup Trifecta

In a Caulfield Cup trifecta the aim is to determine the first three runners across the finish line in the exact order of arrival. A winning Caulfield Cup trifecta is considered a massive achievement within the betting community; earning you not only a massive payout but also eternal bragging rights on the track.

Caulfield Cup Quinella

To succeed in a Caulfield Cup quinella, you must pick the first two horses to cross the line – and the good news is the order in which they arrive does not matter. That means as long as your two selections are the first across the line, then you are home safe with a huge payout to look forward to.

Caulfield Cup Exacta

A Caulfield Cup Exacta works similar to a Caulfield Cup Quinella: again you choose the first two horses to finish the race; however, in a Caulfield Cup Exacta you must determine the exact order in which they run home. This makes it a slightly more difficult bet to win, but in turn it does offer a bigger payout than the Caulfield Cup quinella.

Caulfield Cup First Four

A Caulfield Cup First Four, as you may have guessed from the name, requires you to pick the first four thoroughbreds to finish the race in their exact order. While picking the four front runners and their precise order of arrival may be a challenge, a winning Caulfield Cup First Four is definitely worth the risk: it is very much the holy grail of Caulfield Cup betting.
