Caulfield Cup 2019: Online Watch Live tv channel The Final Field a 2400m Group is slated for Saturday 19th October at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne massive day of racing around the country with Sydney also hosting Caulfield Cup.
The Caulfield Cup barrier draw was unkind to the leading chances but Chris Waller’s import Finche and Japanese star Mer De Glace are still the horses to beat.
Here is how CHRIS VERNUCCIO predicts where every runner will finish from first to last.
The Japanese raider has won his past five starts, three of them at Group 3 level. Yet to race beyond 2200m but his racing style should ensure he runs out the Caulfield Cup trip. He’s got the class to overcome a tough barrier.
In superb form and has the early speed to cross over from the outside draw. If the speed is on he’ll be hard to run down.
He brings excellent form from Europe with a win and four seconds from his five runs this year. The David Hayes import could emerge as the Melbourne Cup favourite if he runs well here.
- MIRAGE DANCER
The English import split eventual Caulfield Cup winner Best Solution and fourth placegetter Duretto at Newmarket last year. The only blot on his form was when he failed im Hong Kong.
Won the Ebor over 2787m last start, so could be better suited in the Melbourne Cup. But Kris Lees’ import has Damien Oliver on board.
- VOW AND DECLARE
Great return in the Turnbull Stakes but the soft tempo could leave him vulnerable late. Might need another run.
- THE CHOSEN ONE
Showed he can run a strong 2400m in his Herbert Power win last week. But he’ll jump from the widest barrier here and need all the breaks to win.
