Caulfield Cup 2021

Saturday October 16, 2021

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: 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 is now also challenged for the punters’ attention by Sydney’s richest race day – The Everest Day – held on the same date at Royal Randwick and featuring the world’s richest turf race – the $15 million The Everest – as well as the $1.3 million The Kosciuszko for NSW country-trained horses.

The next edition of the Caulfield Cup runs on Saturday October 16, 2021.

Caulfield Cup Field

The Caulfield Cup 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 and the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m).

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. 

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 2020 Verry Elleegant became the latest galloper to complete the Turnbull Stakes – Caulfield Cup double

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 six Caulfield Cup winners from 2009 – 2020 including Jameka (2nd in 2016) and fellow mare Verry Elleegant (1st in 2020) who did the double. 

Other Caulfield Cup betting tips include looking for in-form four-year-old horses as this age group saluted four times from 2010 – 2020, while Caulfield Cup barriers seven and nine have produced the most winners since 1983.

2021 Caulfield Cup Tips

Our Ladbrokes exclusive Caulfield Cup 2021 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.
