The Caulfield Cup is one of the most important international horse racing events. The grade one thoroughbred race is run in mid-October at Caulfield Racecourse in Australia. It’s one of the qualifying methods for the Melbourne Cup, which takes place at Flemington two weeks later.
Furthermore, horses from around the world come to compete in this event. There’s a talented blend of Australian, British, Irish, American, and French runners, among others. What’s more, several prestigious horses have won this race in the past including Dunaden, Master O’Reilly, Mongolian Khan, and Admire Rakti.
More than a dozen accomplished runners have already been confirmed for this year’s event. For that reason, we’ll provide you with the latest racing tips and news. If you’re unsure about who to back, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Here’s our 2019 Caulfield Cup betting tips.
Homesman - This American horse is one of the current favourites, and it’s easy to see why. The 5-year-old won his last race at Moonee Valley in style. What’s more, punters got an extremely generous price of 5.00. He’s raced at Caulfield several times, so he knows the track well. Homesman finished 7th in 2018, but he’ll be confident that he can improve this time around.
Django Freeman - Django Freeman is making the trip across from Germany. The 3-year-old has plenty of potential and has picked up one career win so far. He looked excellent when Lukas Delozier rode him to victory in May. However, he was beaten by the smallest of margins during his last two races. This horse will need time to adjust to the conditions, but if his yard makes the right decisions, he’ll perform well. If you want to play it safe, we’d recommend each-way bets.
Constantinople - If you’re looking for a value for money wager, we’d recommend Constantinople. This 3-year-old Irish runner has notched up two wins since August 2018. However, he also has four second-place finishes under his belt this year. He’s proven time and time again that he can compete with the best, but he needs to claim a significant win sooner rather than later. This might be his chance.
Mustajeer - Experience is Mustajeer’s biggest quality. He’s appeared in five races so far this year and picked up an excellent win at York in August. This will be the 6-year-old’s biggest test to date, but we’re confident that he’ll give a good account of himself. He can go all the way and win the entire race. However, we’re playing it safe and placing each-way bets.
Kings Will Dream - This horse has an outside chance of winning, so we’d consider placing each-way wagers once again. He ran in a grade one race at Randwick earlier in the year but was well beaten in the end. However, he’s run at Caulfield and Flemington on several occasions, so he has plenty of experience in the big races. He’ll need a bit of luck and clear run to win this one, but it would be foolish to rule him out.
