With the 2011 $2.5m Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) fields finalized the betting markets suggests it is a one horse race – December Draw according to the markets should win the Caulfield Cup on Saturday.
They say money talks but not everyone is convinced the betting is correct particularly when the Mark Kavanagh trained galloper is yet to run 2400m.
His lead form is undeniably good having won five of six starts since arriving from England.
He joined the major Melbourne Racing Spring Carnival players when winning the 2011 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington – his first start at Group 1 level.
The Caulfield Cup of 2011 isn’t being considered a classic year, in fact one of the weaker races and it may just give Kavanagh, whose history in the Caulfield Cup has been a tale of woe – something to smile about.
Luxbet are playing it safe and have posted December Draw as $2.30 ahead of the German galloper Lucas Cranach.
Now with the Lee Freedman yard that five-year old is making his Australian debut in the 2011 Caulfield Cup (2400m).
Luxbet have him safe at $7.50, good eachway odds and possibly value prior to today’s barrier draw.
The rest of the Caulfield Cup field are double figure odds.
The first of Michael Kent’s three gallopers in the 2011 Caulfield Cup betting is Absolutely at $10 with Luxbet with his other two Unusual Suspect $101 and Domesky $81. It would make it a big trifecta result to the Cranbourne yard.
It is the sort of result that would suit the Luxbet 5% added on all exotic bets offer with the dividend derived from the best of the three Australian totes. There is no limit to what can be won.
Those who don’t like December Draw can get lots of value.
