Little change in betting after the barrier draw for the 2011 Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) conducted today.
It seems a good barrier draw was already factored in for 2011 Caulfield Cup favourite December Draw who remained unchanged in betting at $2.30 with Luxbet.
The Mark Kavanagh trained galloper drew in the middle of the field in barrier 11 but will jump from barrier nine if the four emergencies miss a start.
I can’t fault him, he has improved at each run and has improved leaps and bounds since winning the Turnbull Stakes,” Kavanagh said.
“He showed in the Turnbull he can respond to a in a scrap and I believe he will run 2400m.”
The main movers in the Caulfield Cup market for 2011 were Lucas Cranach and Southern Speed.
Both gallopers drew ideally in the Caulfield Cup with Lucas Cranach in three and Southern Speed along side in barrier four.
Lucas Cranach, the German import trained by Anthony and Lee Freedman, moved marginally shorter from $7.50 to $7 with Luxbet but has been treated for a foot abscess. He will be checked by Racing Victoria stewards on Friday
Southern Speed tumbled into $16 from $21.
While the Gai Waterhouse trained Tullamore drew wide in barrier 15, the five year old gelding had specking from $51 to $26 just on pure weight of money.
Waterhouse is aiming for her second Caulfield Cup winner in successive years after Descarado’s Caulfield Cup win in 2010.
While Peter Moody takes all before him, the Caulfield Cup has been a stumbling block to date in his stellar training career having not had a placegetter.
His record is unlikely to change with bolter Macedonian a drifter with luxbet from $101 to $151.
