2019 Caulfield Cup First Acceptances Leaves 74 Hopefuls

This year’s list of 2019 Caulfield Cup hopefuls has been dwindled down to 74 after Racing Victoria announced the official list of first acceptances on Tuesday.

Among the notables are last weekend’s Naturalism Stakes (2000m) winner Brimham Rocks and the David Brideoake trained Self Sense, both of whom earned first ballot exemptions.

Mr Quickie, current favourite in the Ladbrokes.com.au market, also made the cut after running third in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m), while Japanese second-elect Mer De Glace looks set to contest for the $5 million prizemoney as he arrives on Australian shores later this week.

Godolphin trainer James Cummings has some big decisions to make around last start winner Avilius, who earned his third career Group 1 victory during last weekends George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick. For now, Avilius has retained his nomination for the Caulfield Cup despite also holding a spot in the Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) and the Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Stablemate Hartnell is also among the headliners for Godolphin as the nine-year-old prepares for a Caulfield Cup debut.

Speaking of debutants, talented Japanese stayer Suzuka Devious will arrive in Melbourne this week for trainer Mitsuru Hashida, while last year’s Melbourne Cup third place-getter Prince of Arran will also return down-under.

Alongside Brimham Rocks, Chris Waller’s other hope comes in the form of Finche, who won last weekends Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes at Randwick and Verry Elleegant, who ran fourth in the George Main.

Finche currently sits on the second line of all-in 2019 Caulfield Cup betting at $14.00, followed closely by Mustajeer, who will be trained by Kris Lees ahead of his Australian debut.
