Caulfield Cup 2012 – Final Field Betting

October 18th, 2012

The 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market received a significant shakeup after the barrier draw was conducted yesterday.

Favourites Glencadam Gold and Dunaden drew the outside barriers and will start from gates seventeen and eighteen respectively.

Glencadam Gold remains on top of the 2012 Caulfield Cup betting market at bookmaker.com.au and is currently priced at $5.

He is followed in the market by Dunaden and December Draw who are both available at odds of $7.50.

December Draw has been well backed despite lingering doubts over the Mark Kavanagh-trained imports ability to run a strong 2400m.

Peter Moody-trained Lights of Heaven was well backed after the barrier draw and has been the market mover at bookmaker.com.au.

The Zabeel mare won the Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) and Brisbane Cup (2400m) during the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival but is yet to find her best form this spring.

The five-year-old is joined in the field by stablemates Sneak A Peek ($16) and Voila Ici ($21).

Luca Cumani-trained My Quest For Peace ($11) drew an inside barrier and has received strong support from punters.

However, Sara Cumani, wife of the ace trainer, wasn’t particularly happy with the draw and doubts her galloper has the early speed necessary to take advantage of the inside draw.

The other runners in the 2012 Caulfield Cup with odds less than $20 are Southern Speed, Alcopop, Americain and Jakkalberry.

Southern Speed is aiming to become the first mare in history to win the Caulfield Cup on multiple occasions.

The Southern Image mare will have to improve significantly from her Turnbull Stakes (2000m) performance where she finished second last.

Alcopop bounced back to form with a fast-finishing second in the Caulfield Stakes (2000m).

The eight-year-old will appreciate the extra distance in the Caulfield Cup and has drawn barrier nine.

2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain has drawn a wide barrier and will not start in the race if the track is too firm.

Marco Botti-trained Jakkalberry is making his Australian debut in the race and is coming off a last start win in the American St Leger (2700m).
