The 2019 Caulfield Cup is one of the biggest races on the Australian racing calendar and will be held at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, October 19th. The Group 1 handicap is known as the richest handicap on turf over 2400m and carries a total prize pool of $5million.
The field is limited to 18 runners with four emergencies. The 2019 Caulfield Cup field is released early Tuesday morning (15 October) before the race on Saturday 19 October, with the barrier draw conducted after Wednesday's Caulfield meeting due to the Coongy Cup carrying exemption status for the Caulfield Cup.
The current order of entry and likely field for the 2019 Caulfield Cup is below, with odds provided by Sportsbet (correct as of 17 October 2019):
The Chris Waller-trainer Finche currently heads the market with Palmerbet for this year's Caulfield Cup after his 4th placed effort in the race last year. The six-year-old Frankel gelding won the G3 Kingston Town Stakes in Sydney two starts ago and followed that with a narrow defeat in the G1 Turnbull Stakes.
The Japanese took out the 2014 Caulfield Cup with Admire Rakti and their assault on this year's race comes in the form of Mer De Glace, with the market suggesting he is currently the biggest threat to Finche. He's won his past five starts back in Japan, with the last three coming at Group 3 level.
Mr Quickie steps back up to the 2400m for the first time since winning the G1 Queensland Oaks back in June. He is the only other runner in single figures at present, while international raiders Constantinople, Mustajeer and The Chosen One all fall between $10-$11, along with Queensland Oaks runner-up Vow And Declare.
We will have an updated betting market once the final field and barrier draw have been released.
