EVENT: Race 8 – Caulfield Cup (Group 1) 2400m
COMPETITION: Caulfield Cup – 17 October 2009
With the announcement of Saturday’s Caulfield Cup barrier draw earlier this morning, bookmakers have done a major reshuffle in response to the allocations. Leading online bookmaker IASbet now has Cima De Triomphe, Predatory Pricer and Daffodil all sitting as equal favourites for the $2.5million race at $8.50. Predatory Pricer was early favourite before the barriers were decided, but drawing horribly with gate 16 has seen him drift from $6.50.
Some favorites :
Allez Wonder Win 10.00
Baughurst (1E) Win 61.00
C`est la Guerre WIN 21.00
Cima de Triomphe win 8.00
