Group 1 winners Castelvecchio and Prince Fawaz head 324 entries for the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) set for October 12 at Caulfield.

Entries have risen dramatically for the $2 million feature with 324 three-year-olds nominated - a dramatic increase from the 267 entries in 2018.

The nominations include Richard Litt's Champagne Stakes winner Castelvecchio and Prince Fawaz, who took out the JJ Atkins for trainer Anthony Cummings as a two-year-old.

Two Group 1-winning fillies have been entered in the race as well as the Thousand Guineas (1600m), which is run on the same day, with Golden Slipper winner Kiamichi (James Cummings) and Blue Diamond Stakes champion Lyre (Anthony Freedman) potential runners. 

In total, 24 fillies are among the 324 entries with Loving Gaby and Lady Lupino two standout names.

Chris Waller has entered JJ Atkins placegetters Kubrick and Reloaded as well as Yes Yes Yes, while Dubious (Ciaron Maher & David Eustace), Cosmic Force (Peter & Paul Snowden) and Super Seth (Anthony Freedman) are other notable nominations.

First acceptances for the Caulfield Guineas will be taken at 12 noon (AEST) on Tuesday, 10 September 2019.

Horses contesting the Caulfield Guineas will be eligible for one of three lucrative bonuses.

The winners of both Guineas are eligible for a $1 million bonus if successful in the $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 26.

Beaten Guineas runners are also eligible for the same Cox Plate bonus if they have also contested either the Caulfield Guineas or Thousand Guineas Preludes (Caulfield, 29 September) or the Stutt Stakes (The Valley, 27 September).

Three-year-olds contesting the same pathway of races through the Preludes/Stutt and Guineas are also eligible for a $1 million bonus if successful in the $500,000 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on November 2.
