Quality packed racing set for 2023 Caulfield Cup day

Will the G1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) go to the locals with the likes of Soulcombe ($5), Gold Trip ($6) and Montefilia ($13) big hopes or will it be those coming from overseas?

West Wind Blows ($6), Breakup ($9) and Okita Soushi ($21) could be massive hopes with their international connections.

Nominations were extended for the G3 Caulfield Classic (2000m) as Derby credentials are on the line. Riff Rocket ($1.70) will naturally be heavily featured but strong stables also run with Gold Bullion ($6) and To Be Frank ($15).

It’s the same situation for the fillies in the G3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m). Tropical Squall ($2.10) brings in G1 form but Autumn Angel ($4.20) now comes out of a strong form race.

Another race where more entries are a chance is in the G2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m). Lofty Strike heads betting with bookies at $3.50 and he is the best horse in it as he resumes from a spell.

The G2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) is generally a great pointer to the Empire Rose and good mares are entered like Madame Pommery, Nunthorpe and Skew Wiff.

With the change in the programming, the G2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) is now on Caulfield Cup day and we see new blood here like Coeur Volante and Zourion coming from the Moonee Valley race.

Other features on the day include the Listed Gothic Stakes (1200m) for the 3yos and the G3 Moonga Stakes (1400m) for the older sprinters.
