Caulfield Cup Tips: 3 big priced runners to consider

  • Kiwis have strong staying form.
  • Jon Snow at big odds

With the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival fast approaching, it’s time to take a look at the All In markets and try and find some value.

The Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) is one of the toughest races on the Australian racing calendar, and it’s certainly no easy feat to try and find the winner months out from the event.

But with inflated odds due to uncertainty, it is worth having a flutter now to try and secure overs for your top selection/s.

Here are my top 3 for the 2017 Caulfield Cup as well as the best odds available for each:

BONNEVAL ($21 CrownBet)

Four-year-olds have won the past two Caulfield Cups and four of the past seven, and there’s no reason Bonneval can’t make it a hat-trick for that age group. Already a dual Group 1 winner as a filly, the daughter of Makfi is out of the Zabeel mare Imposingly, and she couldn’t have been more impressive winning the Australian Oaks (2400m) at her most recent start. Her co-trainer Murray Baker won the Caulfield Cup in 2015 with Mongolian Khan, so if this is the way she is heading, rest assured she’s not there to simply make up the numbers.


HARTNELL ($18 Luxbet)

There’s no way Hartnell can beat Winx in the Cox Plate so the only reason the stable would head that way is to avoid a penalty in the Melbourne Cup if that’s his main aim. He ran a brave race in the Melbourne Cup last year to finish 3rd, but he looks better suited over 2400m. He belted reigning Caulfield Cup winner Jameka in her lead-up in the Turnbull Stakes, and if Godolphin target the Caulfield Cup with Hartnell in the spring, he’ll be one of the main contenders.

JON SNOW ($34 Ladbrokes)

Spring is coming!  And so are the kiwis! Gingernuts and Jon Snow are both clearly talented stayers that can measure up during the Melbourne Spring Carnival. Gingernuts defeated Jon Snow in the NZ Derby (2400m) but then Jon Snow turned the tables in the Australian Derby (2400m). Considering Gingernuts ($17) is half the price of Jon Snow ($34) in the All In market for the Caulfield Cup, Jon Snow represents the best value.
