2021 Caulfield Cup Nominations Attract 170 Entries

Nominations for the Caulfield Cup 2021 closed today, Tuesday August 3, with 170 stayers making-up the early entries for the $5 million classic running on Saturday October 16, 2021.

For the 144th running of the Group 1 $5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m), held on the same day as Sydney’s $15 million The Everest race, nominations were down slightly on the 177 from 2020.

Chris Waller‘s reigning Caulfield Cup champion, eight-time Group 1 winning Zed mare Verry Elleegant, holds a nomination but is likely to be weighted out of contention.

Instead there is a greater chance she will run in the $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 23 while Verry Elleegant also featured in the 174 Melbourne Cup 2021 nominations taken today.

All-in Caulfield Cup odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by Incentivise, now prepared by Peter Moody.

The son of Shamus Award extended his winning streak for his former trainer Steve Tregea to six on the trot with an incredible 12-length victory in Brisbane’s Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2400m) that stamped him as the stayer to watch ahead of the spring majors.

There’s also plenty of early hype on the Hawkes Racing-trained Mount Popa for his Caulfield Cup bid after a nearly three-length win in the Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) back in March.

Last season’s standout three-year-old stayer was Explosive Jack, winner of the Tasmanian Derby – SA Derby – ATC Derby treble before a close third in the Queensland Derby.

The Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained son of Jakkalberry is one of bumper 19 Caulfield Cup nominations for the stable along with reigning Cox Plate champion Sir Dragonet who has been entered for both races along with the Melbourne Cup in 2021.

Of the international Caulfield Cup nominated horses one of the shortest-priced in the current markets is veteran Prince Of Arran.

Charlie Fellowes’ dual Melbourne Cup placegetter (2nd in 2019, 3rd in 2020), Prince of Arran’s only run outside the top three from eight starts down under was his fourth in last year’s Caulfield Cup results.

Waller meanwhile has a further 16 Caulfield Cup nominations along with Verry Elleegant in his shot at back-to-back wins by a trainer with his contingent led by ATC Oaks winning filly Hungry Heart.

Other standout entries include Edward Cummings‘ Queensland Oaks winner Duais, Denis Pagan’s upset VRC Derby champion Johnny Get Angry out to continue the fairytale for the former AFL Premiership coach, last year’s third placed Kiwi galloper The Chosen One and the Joseph O’Brien-trained 2020 Melbourne Cup winner Twilight Payment from Ireland.

The 2021 Caulfield Cup first acceptances close at midday on Tuesday September 7th, 2021.
