2021 Caulfield Cup Tips

As the 2021 Caulfield Cup approaches, tips will be uploaded here. Early on the Caulfield Cup tips are dominated by stayers that ran in the winning Caulfield Cup trifecta from the previous season and those running well in traditional lead-up races to the Group 1 over 2400m in both Australia and overseas.

Our insider Caulfield Cup betting tips for 2021 will be detailed below before the race is run and won on Saturday October 16, 2021.

2021 Caulfield Cup Tips

  • The Favourite: #2 Incentivise ($2.60 at time of publish) 

How do you tip against the Peter Moody-trained Queensland expat? Twelve length Group 3 Tatt’s Cup win in the winter in Brisbane put him at the top of all-in betting and he has only firmed since winning the Group 1 Makybe Diva – Turnbull Stakes double in Melbourne this time in. Wide gate is the only concern jumping from the outside, but he’ll be working to settle inside the first four or five and the wet track suggests you don’t want to be near the inside! Wins by how many lengths?

  • The Danger: #4 The Chosen One ($13 at time of publish) 

Super-consistent Kiwi galloper has his third shot at the Caulfield Cup trophy and looks his best chance yet (Incentivise aside). Third last year to Verry Elleegant and gets a better run here from a very good barrier (9 into 8 without emergencies). In great form as always with a Herbert Power second last time out doing his best work late. Eye-catching run there, wouldn’t surprise to see him finish in the same position.

  • The Value: #12 Montefilia ($16 at time of publish) 

Multiple Group 1 winning mare ticked the mile and a half box in the Group 1 The Metropolitan in Sydney last time out. She can frank that form here on a wet track (that she’s proven on) with less weight from a good barrier. Hard to knock!

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.

Caulfield Cup Lead Up Races

To make sure you are not placing your Caulfield Cup bets on a no-hope horse, take a moment to check out your Caulfield Cup betting pick’s past performances in the lead up races. Your Caulfield Cup tips checklist for past performance can include the distance of the race, the jockey and even the weather conditions, which will give you an idea about how your runner might do in the Caulfield Cup.

Good lead-up races to consider the results of when doing the Caulfield Cup tips includes the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) run two weeks before at Flemington Racecourse that has produced 22 Caulfield Cup winners (since 1983) including Jameka (2nd in 2016), Verry Elleegant (1st in 2020) who did the double and Incentivise (1st in 2021) who also won both races.

International form is stacking up more and more in the Caulfield Cup as overseas raiders make a stronger presence down under for a Spring Cups bid. A number of Caulfield Cup winners had a lead-up run outside of Australia / New Zealand – most recently the Godolphin-raced winner Best Solution (2018) who came off a Group 1 victory in Germany – and Japan’s Mer De Glace (2019) first-up in Australia – so make sure you also look at international runners when doing your Caulfield Cup tips.

Caulfield Cup Favourite

While there is a risk involved in going against the grain in terms of picking against a Caulfield Cup favourite, there is also the promise of a solid reward if your gamble pays off. Betting on an outsider in the Caulfield Cup awards longer odds, meaning a higher payout for the courageous punter. Of course, you can still bet on a strong Caulfield Cup favourite and get good odds by going with exotic bets.

Caulfield Cup favourites only have a fair recent record in the race, so tipping an upset Caulfield Cup result from an in-form double-figure chances in the Caulfield Cup odds can prove profitable.

Mongolian Khan (2015), Jameka (2016), Verry Elleegant (2020) and Incentivise (2021) all saluted as favourites in Caulfield Cup betting, but were the first to do so since Master O’Reilly (2007).
