Comeback king Jim Byrne is confident he can...
It’s the 142nd running of the Caulfield Cup this weekend and ahead of what is an intriguing edition of the mile-and-a-half classic, the Races.com.au team have summed up the winning chances of all the runners with an exclusive two word 2019 Caulfield Cup form guide.
There’s a capacity field engaged in the Group 1 $5 million Stella Artois Caulfield Cup (2400m) including a number of northern hemisphere stayers that look a threat to the locally-trained hopes.
Previously European-trained, the now Chris Waller-prepared Finche is favourite in Caulfield Cup betting but will the son of Frankel arrive at the line too late over the shorter run home at the track?
The highly-rated Japanese raider Mer De Glace chases a sixth straight win, but is yet to salute over the 2400m and has a wide alley hampering chances.
Money is coming for another ex-European with Lindsay Park’s lightly-raced Constantinople a market mover despite being unseen down under ahead of the feature.
Of the locals, it is Mr Quickie and Vow And Declare topping the Caulfield Cup odds, the former looking to atone for a last start Flemington flop while the latter ran a blinder first-up fourth in the same lead-up (Turnbull Stakes).
Saturday’s major is the first of the spring’s Big 3 races and below we have two words to say on all the Caulfield Cup 2019 horses before you place your bets at Ladbrokes.com.au.
