Caulfield Cup 2016

Saturday 15th October

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 2016 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.

This year the Caulfield Cup will be run on Saturday 15th October.

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 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.

Caulfield Cup Betting & Odds

Futures Caulfield Cup betting is open right from the autumn before with generous all-in prices on offer for a host of stayers that could possibly feature in the final field. The Caulfield Cup odds firm as race day approaches and often the best time to place a bet is on the day when it is confirmed who is in and who is out of the classic. Double figure hopes have the best record in the race with just one horse, Southern Speed ($9 in 2011), saluting at a starting price of under $10 since 2008. The last Caulfield Cup favourite to win was Master O’Reilly (2007) while All The Good won at 40/1 odds the following year.

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 has produced four Caulfield Cup winners since 2009 including Fawkner (2013).

The Caulfield Cup form guide features all the information you need to place a winning wager on the handicap showdown including the basics such as the saddlecloth and barrier numbers of the horses in the field. You can also find information like the lead-up starts of the hopefuls and their allocated weights. Heavily weighted horses aren’t statistically at any disadvantage either with Admire Rakti (2014) and Dunaden (2012) both carrying 58kg to victory in recent years.
