First acceptances for the 2017 Caulfield Cup (2400m) were taken on Tuesday, September 26 with 70 runners remaining in the frame.

A total of 70 horses remain in contention for the the 2017 Caulfield Cup (2400m) including seven international runners after the first acceptances stage for the October 21 feature.

Race favourite Humidor, who is exempt from the ballot following his victory in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes, headlines the 70 acceptors for the $3.15 million Caulfield Cup.

Humidor is one of 12 horses entered by trainer Darren Weir, who will also saddle Japanese import Admire Deus in the Spring Carnival feature.

Among the other overseas runners include the Charlie Appleby-trained  Godolphin pair Francis of Assisi and Kidmenever, who will be joined in by fellow boy in blue Hartnell for trainer James Cummings.

Marmelo (Hugh Morrison), Johannes Vermeer (Aidan O’Brien), Wall of Fire (Hugo Palmer) and the Willie Mullins-trained pair Wicklow Brave and Riven Light are the other internationals accepting for the Caulfield Cup.

Bonneval, who like Humidor is guaranteed a run having secured ballot exemption when winning the  Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chim Nam, is among the other leading names along with Harlem and defending Melbourne Cup champion Almandin.
