Caulfield Cup Betting & Late Mail

Fri, Oct 16, 8:55pm by Kevin Pitstock

With three of the top four runners in the 2009 Caulfield Cup being foreigners, this is the widest the betting has ever been on this race. Punter don’t know much about the overseas horses, with some punters at Sports Alive getting on Kirklees at longer than the current 9/1 odds.

Last start winner and Bart Cummings trained Allez Wonder is paying $9.50 on SPorts Alive. That is significantly shorter than the 41/1 it was paying on the weekend. A couple of punter went to town on the Aussie bookmaker when they had up to $300 on the long shot.

No one seems to know what they are betting on this year. It is a wide open affair, with the bookies taking a cautious approach. They have placed the foreign horses as favourites primarily to protect themselves. With the form of the horses being so unclear because of the small fields and weak races, bookies across the board are taking the soft option by making them favourite.

My advice is to go with one of the local horses. They are proven to perform here and will have a much better chance than these outsiders. It is true that of late the overseas horses have done alright, but look at their form long term. Historically the overseas horses in the Caulfield Cup have failed to live up to all the hype. Not just in the Caulfield Cup either. That is true for the Spring Racing carnival in Australia most years.

That being said, I now have to get off the fence and pick a winner in the 2009 Caulfield Cup. With the weather conditions being as they are, it makes my job even tougher. I will be putting my money on Viewed as my late mail tip for the Caulfield Cup in 2009. With solid form of late and its proven record I think it can stand up in this race. For those that have been in a cave, the Caulfield Cup 2009 will be run on Saturday October 17 at 4pm.
