Caulfield Cup 2012- Betting Update After First Acceptances

September 13th, 2012

The 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market received a shake-up after the first acceptance fees were paid earlier in the week.

Red Cadeaux was the highest profile absentee with trainer Ed Dunlop choosing to target the 2012 Melbourne Cup exclusively.

Connections of Sincero, Ocean Park and Mosheen withdrew their horses from Caulfield Cup calculations and the trio will all head to the 2012 Cox Plate.

2011 Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed is now equal favourite with Green Moon in the 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market at bookmaker.com.au.

The Southern Image mare has been in excellent form this spring, winning the Listed Penny Edition Stakes and Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes.

History is against the Leon Macdonald-trained galloper as no mare has ever won the Caulfield Cup on two occasions.

Green Moon has drifted in the market after owner Nick Williams announced that the son of Montjeu may run in the 2012 Cox Plate instead of the Caulfield Cup.

The Robert Hickmont-trained stayer will run in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes at Moonee Valley this Saturday.

2011 Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden has firmed in Caulfield Cup betting markets and is now priced at $16.

Dunaden is attempting to emulate the feats of Viewed (2009) and Rising Fast (1954) who won the Caulfield Cup the year after winning the Melbourne Cup.

The Caulfield Cup is back on the agenda for Peter Moody-trained Manighar.

The Linamix grey was expected to skip the Cup in favour of the Cox Plate but Moody has reconsidered after being pleased with the weight given to his horse by Racing Victoria Chief Handicapper Greg Carpenter.

Manighar is on the fourth line of Caulfield Cup betting and is currently priced at $17 at bookmaker.com.au.
