The Caulfield Cup is a Group One horse race which is a 2400m race. $1.75 million goes to the winner of the race, while the prize pool is $3 million.
The two main lead up races for the Caulfield Cup were the Underwood Stakes at Caulfield and the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington.
Jameka is the early favourite at $3.50 to win the 2016 Caulfield Cup. The runner has drawn a tough barrier at number 13. However, he has shown good recent form. Jameka ran in the Turnbull Stakes recently and finished second to Hartnell who will race in the upcoming Cox Plate against Winx. Jameka has won a race over 2400m once in his career. Nicholas Hall will be jockey.
Scottish ($8.00) is the current second favourite and is one of the many International horses in this field. The runner won its last race over in England at York race course in a 1799m Group 3. He’s nominated for the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup so he’s one to watch over the next few weeks. Kerrin Mcevoy gets to ride Scottish at the 2016 Caulfield Cup.
Real Love ($8.50) is trained by Darren Weir and won its last start. At Moonee Valley last month, Real Love started as favourite and overcome a bad start to win by 3 lengths in a 2040m race. With a good start in this race, she’s a big chance to win the Cup. Craig Williams will ride Real Love in this race.
