Our expert tipster provides his 2021 Caulfield Cup tips and selections following the barrier draw.
There are plenty of betting options on the Caulfield Cup which generally attracts a capacity field of 18. The big event will be run at the back end of the Caulfield card and is a spectacle to be seen.
Betting options include:
Exactly as it sounds, a Win bet is betting on a single horse to win the race.
Betting for the place generally pays around one quarter of the win odds and covers three placings with your horse having to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd to be successful.
Half your stake on the Win and half your stake on the Place is an each-way bet. For example: $20 each-way gives you $10 on the win and $10 on the Place.
Quinella & Exacta
Picking the first two horses past the post will give you the Quinella or Exacta. The difference between the two is with a Quinella, your horses can finish in any order, and in an Exacta, your two runners must finish in the exact order you selected – unless you box them.
The first three horses past the post. You can select three horses in order or you can box three horses meaning they can finish in any order. Flexi Trifectas also give you the option to add more than three horses in any combination for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The cost of a flexi Trifecta is calculated by the amount of runners you have in each placing.
The first four horses past the past. Same rules apply as Trifectas with straight out First 4 in order, Boxed First 4 or Flexi First 4.
Same Race Multi
Some bookmakers give the option for a same race multi where you can select certain runners to finish 1st, Top 2, Top 3 and Top 4. Odds are displayed next to each horse for each betting option, and odds are combined in a multi bet. The best bookmakers to bet on Caulfield Cup for Same Race Multis include: Sportsbet, Ladbrokes & Neds.
The ‘Quaddie’ is one of the hardest bet types to land but can be very rewarding with massive returns. All Quaddie wagers go into a pool, and the money is shared out among winners. The bigger the odds of each winning leg, the more likely the Quaddie will pay more as more people are knocked out of the pool. To land the Quaddie, you need to select four winning horses in four selected races. You can have one runner per leg or multiple runners, but the more runners you have, the more it costs to place the Quaddie bet. Flexi options allow punters to place large Quaddies but take a smaller percentage for a smaller outlay.
Three rounds of declarations will take place ahead of the 2021 Caulfield Cup (2400m), with the first to take place on September 7. Second declarations will be made on September 21 before the final declarations are made on October 5.

The Caulfield Cup is one of Australia’s richest horse races held at Caulfield Racecourse each October over a distance of 2400m and has been won by some stars of the turf. First run in 1879, the Caulfield Cup has produced numerous moments that have shaped the course of Australian racing history.
See who made out list of Top 5 Caulfield Cup Winners
Held during the three-day Caulfield racing carnival, the Caulfield Cup is one of the most prestigious Group 1 events on the calendar each year. It is held in mid-October each year and is a premier open handicap which uses a ballot system to determine the final field.
First run in 1879, the Caulfield Cup was won by Newminster and has since grown in stature to become one of the richest 2400m handicaps in the world.
Read more about the History of the Caulfield Cup
Founded in 1859, Caulfield Racecourse hosts around 20 race days every year, headlined by the Caulfield Cup.
The track is commonly known at ‘The Heath’ following the early days in which jockeys would ride through rough bush, heath and sand hills during races.
The name is now renowned across Australia and New Zealand for representing Caulfield’s superb racing and entertainment venue.
The first Caulfield Cup was run in the autumn of 1879, and was transferred to the spring in 1881.
The track was closed during the war and was used as an army camp, with the Caulfield Cup being run at Flemington.
Following the 1995 Caulfield Cup, the course underwent a significant reconstruction and reopened in 1996. The track’s circumference was widened to 30m and lengthened inside the home straight by around 43m.
Caulfield Racecourse Track Description
Racing is contested in a left-handed direction at Caulfield and features long, sweeping turns. As a result, there can be a slight draw bias for those drawn low over distances further than seven-furlongs.
The course has a total circumference of 2080m including a home straight of just over 360m.
In terms of the Caulfield Cup, records throughout the 21st century have showcased a slight advantage for single digit stalls due to the course’s swift anti-clockwise bends.
Favourable positioning at Caulfield can be crucial to a contenders’ winning claims, as the setting has a short home straight of less than 400m. It means hold-up performers routinely encounter trouble in-running, resulting in many hard-luck stories.
Over shorter distances, the emphasis is placed on speed as horses seek a prominent position before turning for home. A below-par start in Caulfield’s sprint races usually results in a poor finishing position for horses, showcasing the need for sharp early pace.
