Caulfield Cup 2023

Ladbrokes Tip: Caulfield Cup winners often back-up in the Melbourne Cup over the two miles at Flemington

One of the two major Cups held in Melbourne each Spring Carnival, the Caulfield Cup takes place annually at Caulfield Racecourse in mid – late October and is Australia’s leading mile and a half handicap. Run over 2400m it attracts the season’s top stayers, many of which will progress onto a shot at the ‘race that stops a nation’ in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

The Caulfield Cup – Melbourne Cup double has been achieved by 11 horses in the same year, most recently the gun mare Ethereal (2001).

The Caulfield Cup is currently a handicap event, although there is discussions to turn the classic into a weight-for-age event. The current Caulfield Cup prize money is set at a lucrative $5 million making it one of the richest races on the Australian racing calendar.

Internationally-trained stayers (outside of Australia and New Zealand) have been competing in the Caulfield Cup race since 1998 with six successful to date: Taufan’s Melody (1998), All The Good (2008), Dunaden (2012), the ill-fated Japanese raider Admire Rakti (2014), Best Solution (2018), and most recently Mer De Glace (2019) who became the second for Japan.

The Caulfield Cup training record is held by the late, great Bart Cummings who prepared seven Caulfield Cup winners including the dual champion Ming Dynasty who won on non-successive years (1977 and 1980).

There are currently three races that offer the winner a Caulfield Cup ballot exemption with punters keeping a keen eye on the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) and Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) both run at Caulfield the week prior, and the Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) held in March.

Caulfield Cup Day in Melbourne was recently challenged for the punters’ attention by Sydney’s richest race day – The Everest Day – which was held on the same date at Royal Randwick and featuring the world’s richest turf race – the $20 million The Everest – as well as the $2 million The Kosciuszko for NSW country-trained horses.

In 2023 the Caulfield Cup ran a week later and no longer clashes with The Everest Day.

The Caulfield Cup is also one of the ‘Big 3’ races of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival followed by the Cox Plate in October and the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday of November.

The latest edition of the Caulfield Cup ran on Saturday October 21, 2023 as the first of the ‘Big 3’ Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival majors and was won in a thriller by the Anthony & Sam Freedman-trained import Without A Fight ($8.50) who defeated the better-fancied UK raider West Wind Blows ($5.50F) with Gold Trip ($6.50) third.

  • 1st: #2 Without A Fight
  • 2nd: #6 West Wind Blows
  • 3rd: #1 Gold Trip
  • 4th: #16 Bois D’argent

It was a thrilling 2023 Caulfield Cup result and one that will go down in the history books as the Anthony & Sam Freedman-trained Without A Fight ($8.50), ridden by Mark Zahra, was given a perfectly-timed ride to hold out the beaten favourite crossing a long neck ahead of his former stablemate, UK raider West Wind Blows ($5.50F). Gold Trip ($6.50) was second last year and brave for third with the top-weight in 2023, while Bois D’argent ran out of his skin for fourth at 100/1.

Caulfield Cup Tips2023 Caulfield Cup Tips

Caulfield Cup tips can be found everywhere during the week leading up to the race but it is a notoriously tough event to pick the winner of as usually there’s a host of livewire chances competing for top spot in the markets and predictions.

The best Caulfield Cup tip historically is to look at horses coming out of the Turnbull Stakes as it produced seven Caulfield Cup winners from 2009 – 2023 including Jameka (2nd in 2016), fellow mare Verry Elleegant (1st in 2020) who did the double and Incentivise (1st of 2021) who also won both races.

Other Caulfield Cup betting tips include looking for in-form four-year-old horses as this age group saluted four times from 2010 – 2023, while Caulfield Cup barriers seven and nine have produced the most winners since 1983.

Barrier 7 most recently produced Caulfield Cup winner Without A Fight in 2023.

2023 Caulfield Cup Tips

Our Ladbrokes exclusive Caulfield Cup 2023 betting tips will be detailed below the week of the race with the spring stayers to back and sack in the mile and a half classic so stay tuned.

To Win: #8 Soulcombe ($6 at time of publish) – BET NOW

2023 Caulfield Cup Horses - Soulcombe

Happy to stick with the one-time favourite Soulcombe who drew last year’s winning barrier (6) and is from last year’s winning stable (Chris Waller). Waller has prepared two of the past three Caulfield Cup champions and this import is building momentum at exactly the right time. He picked up a cheeky win fresh in a Black-Type here and has been trialling well for the Cups’ since with two solid efforts. He was fourth in the Underwood 1.4 lengths off Alligator Blood (form franked by the winner who took out the Might And Power) then third to Gold Trip in the Turnbull. Has winning form over 2700m so the 2400m now fourth-up and fit is ideal. Meets Gold Trip better again in the weights down to 53.5kg, one of the best with Craig Williams in the saddle. This looks his right distance, Waller has had him set for this so you know he’ll present perfectly. Big hope.

The Danger: #1 Gold Trip ($6 at time of publish) – BET NOW

2022 Melbourne Cup Winner Gold Trip

You cannot bet on the Caulfield Cup this year and leave Gold Trip out, you just can’t. He won the Melbourne Cup for Maher & Eustace last spring after having run second in the Caulfield Cup and ninth in the Cox Plate. Has the 58.5kg topweight but deserves it. Already a champion, he can go a long way to securing super stardom over the coming weeks starting on Saturday. Returned to his best form last start with a demolition job in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m). Improving each start this prep, the 2400m trip looks spot-on now and Ben Melham has plenty of big race experience. Watch him late, he’ll be flashing home in a high-pressure thriller. Confident he can be right in the finish again and handle the hefty kilos without a worry.

Each Way: #4 Montefilia ($10 at time of publish) – BET NOW

2023 Hill Stakes winner Montefilia

Some queries about the quality she beat home in the Group 2 $2 million Hill Stakes (2000m) last time out, but zero queries about this mare’s class. She is now with the Waller camp and is the only other proven Group 1 winner in the mix along with Gold Trip with four elite level wins on the record. She presents rock-hard fit here fifth-up and ready to fire again. She will eat-up the 2400m and her fourth in the race last year was excellent. Montefilia gets the run of the race from barrier nine and is well-weighted with 54.5kg. Blake Shinn in the saddle and he is going great guns. Needs to add her name to a pretty incredible list of female gallopers to win the Caulfield Cup, but she has beaten the boys before and can come close again.

The Roughie: #17 Spirit Ridge ($35 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Spirit Ridge

The price on this Annabel Neasham-trained veteran is very attractive for a bit of a flutter. A 41-start gelding who at nine years old continues to show an incredible zest for racing. Coming out of the Sydney lead-ups with nice runs narrowly beaten in the Wyong Cup (34d), Newcastle Gold Cup (2nd) and the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2nd) at this distance a nostril flare off Just Fine on September 30. Kept fresh since, fourth-up now and fit as he’s ever been. Always overs in the markets and thereabouts. Will be airborne with only 50.5kg, on pace leading (or thereabouts) giving them something to run down. This is tougher, Just Fine didn’t frank the form with a dead last finish last week at Caulfield, but at the price happy to have something on him in for a top four run.

Caulfield Cup Field

The Caulfield Cup race field is released on the Tuesday before the race runs on a Saturday in mid-October each year and has a capacity of 18 starters plus four emergencies. Aside from the Melbourne Cup and partially the Cox Plate, the Caulfield Cup Field earns some of the most attention during the whole calendar year of racing.

Run under handicap conditions the Caulfield Cup race is open to horses aged three years and older and now attracts a truly international line-up with many imports and international raiders in the mix each season. The first hint of the final field happens when Caulfield Cup nominations are taken at the start of August, early entries often exceeding 200 horses.

Spring stayers may come into the Caulfield Cup field via a number of various lead-up races including the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) run a fortnight prior at Flemington, the Group 3 Coongy Cup (2000m) run the Wednesday prior and the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m). Incentivise (2021) was the latest horse to complete the Turnbull Stakes – Caulfield Cup double following on from Verry Elleegant (2020) who also won both races the year before.

The Herbert Power Stakes runs over the same track / distance as the Caulfield Cup the weekend before and Boom Time (4th in 2017) was the last Caulfield Cup winner to come out of that lead-up.

The Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) run at the track in late September is also a key lead-up into the Caulfield Cup field offering the winner a ballot exemption into the mile and a half classic, and Jameka (2016) was the last to do the double. More recently in 2021 the Naturalism Stakes winner Nonconformist went on to run a brave second in that year’s Caulfield Cup quinella.

One of the very early lead-up races into the Caulfield Cup field is the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) run at Moonee Valley under the lights on Moir Stakes Night.

In 2023 the Caulfield Cup winner Without A Fight won the race second-up off a lead-up sixth the month before in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at the track.
