Latest Nominations news (2016):

The world’s richest 2400m handicap will be held at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, October 15, and is worth $3.15 million in prizemoney.

Hartnell and Sir John Hawkwood head 30 entries for the 2016 Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) following the third acceptances stage.

Runaway Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) winner Hartnell remains entered in all three Spring Carnival features - the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup - with a decision on his likely targets set to be made by Godolphin.

If he lined up in the Caulfield Cup on October 15, he could face Sir John Hawkwood, who is fresh from winning the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) on Saturday.

The pair are among 30 horses still in the frame for the Caulfield Cup, for which a number of international gallopers also feature in the third acceptances.

Scottish, Articus, Sir Isaac Newton and Exosphere are already in quarantine at the Werribee International Horse Centre and look set to feature in the Caulfield Cup.

The home challenge, meanwhile, could include Jameka, Set Square, Pemberley, Real Love, Gallante and Antonio Giuseppe.

But the absentees from the latest acceptances stage include Tom Melbourne, Sofia Rose and Tavago with all three ruled out of contention.
