Caulfield Cup 2012 – Betting Update After Third Acceptances

October 11th, 2012

The 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market received a significant shake up after the third acceptance fees were paid earlier this week.

Green Moon was the highest profile withdrawal with connections of the Montjeu stallion deciding that the Cox Plate (2040m) was a better option.

Peter Moody-trained Manighar, Craven Plate (2000m) winner Mourayan and George Main Stakes (1400m) winner Shoot Out are also out of Caulfield Cup contention.

The Caulfield Cup market mover has been Glencadam Gold.

The Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup odds of the Gai Waterhouse-trained import were slashed after his dominant performance in the Group 1 Metropolitan Handicap (2400m).

Glencadam Gold controlled the race for young jockey Tommy Berry and ran away from the rest of the field in the straight.

The Mark Kavanagh-trained gelding has been in consistent form this campaign finishing third in the Underwood Stakes (1800m) and Turnbull Stakes (2000m).

Seville has been well backed in Caulfield Cup betting markets after his impressive run behind stablemate Green Moon in the Turnbull Stakes.

The son of Galileo hit the line well and appears like he will be perfectly suited to the 2400m of the Caulfield Cup.

French duo Dunaden and Americain are expected to make their Caulfield Cup debuts Saturday week and are on the fourth and fifth lines of Caulfield Cup betting respectively.

The last two Melbourne Cup winners have been allocated the top weight of 58kg and if either is successful will become the first horse since the great Northerly to carry such a load to Caulfield Cup victory.

Last year’s Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed has been the big drifter in the Caulfield Cup betting market at after her disappointing effort in the Turnbull Stakes.

The Southern Image mare was the first horse beaten and finished fifteenth out of sixteen runners.

The five-year-old will become the first mare to win the Caulfield Cup on multiple occasions if she can turn her form around and win next Saturday.
