Green Moon Still Clear 2012 Caulfield Cup Favourite

September 20th, 2012

Green Moon is still a clear favourite in 2012 Caulfield Cup betting markets.

The odds of the Lloyd Williams-owned stallion shortened after his impressive 2nd place finish in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

The son of Montjeu is now priced at $14 in the 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market at bookmaker.com.au.

On the next line of betting are 2011 Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden, 2011 Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed and 2012 Australian Cup winner Manighar, who are all priced at $16 at bookmaker.com.au.

Dunaden is confirmed to run in the 2012 Caulfield Cup (2400m) but has been allocated 58kg by Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter.

No horse has carried that much weight to win the Caulfield Cup since the great Northerly in 2002.

Southern Speed has been in excellent form this spring winning the Spring Stakes (1600m) and Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m).

History is against the Southern Image mare as no mare has won the Caulfield Cup more than once.

Peter Moody-trained Manighar is unlikely to run in the Caulfield Cup and will instead contest the 2012 Cox Plate.

American St Leger winner Jakkalberry is priced at $17 in the 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market at bookmaker.com.au.

The Australian-owned import will arrive in Australia on the 29th of September with Dunaden and fourteen other international raiders.

2012 Australian Derby runner-up Polish Knight is currently on the sixth line of 2012 Caulfield Cup betting markets.

The Encosta De Lago gelding will run in this weekend’s Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) against other Caulfield Cup hopefuls Mourayan, Midas Touch, Lamasery, Permit, The Verminator, Stout Hearted and Lights of Heaven.
