Jameka has recorded just one win since she took out the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) in November last year, but there is no doubt that the talented filly has gone to another level this preparation.

The daughter of Myboycharlie started her 2016 Spring Racing Carnival campaign with a promising fourth in the Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on August 13 and she did not have a great deal of luck in running in the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 3.

Jameka went to the to the top of Caulfield Cup betting markets when she recorded a dominant victory in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield on September 17 and she chased home Hartnell in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on October 2.

Scottish is one of a number of European stayers that are set to contest the Caulfield Cup and he is on the second line of betting with Ladbrokes at a quote of $8.

The Godolphin-owned stayer heads into the Caulfield Cup on the back of a comfortable victory in the Group 3 Strensall Stakes (1799m) at York on August 20 and before that he was second behind Royal Artillery in the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes (2098m) at Haydock Park on August 6.

The only other horse that is available at single-figure 2016 Caulfield Cup odds is Real Love, who is priced at $9 to record the biggest win of his racing career to date.

Real Love started her campaign with credible performances in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and the Naturalism Stakes before she returned to winning form with a dominant victory in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) at Moonee Valley on September 30.

Imports in the form of Articus ($10), Exospheric ($10) and Sir Isaac Newton ($11) fill the next part of betting, while there has been a move for Tally ($11) following his third place finish in the Turnbull Stakes.

Caulfield Cup betting markets can already be found with Ladbrokes.com.au, who will also be offering an number of special offers in the lead-up to the race.
