Caulfield's showpiece event takes place on Saturday and there is plenty of racing to enjoy. The 2021 Caulfield Cup is sure to be a day enjoyed by all racing fans. This is Zero Tipper's guide on how you can catch all the action.
The first event on the race card gets underway at 12:15 pm (AEDT) from Caulfield Racecourse in Victoria.
The feature race itself is set to jump at 5:15 pm AEDT as the second last event on the program.
What is the Caulfield Cup?
The Caulfield Cup is a 2400-metre classic that tests some of the countries best stayers against each other. Usually, a race run at a moderate tempo, the Caulfield Cup can be a slow burn.
Often used as a precursor to the Melbourne Cup by some, this feature event in the Caulfield Carnival is a highlight of the Victorian Spring Carnival.
Who are the favourites to win the race?
It's very hard to go past favourite Incentivise who has won the Makybe Diva and Turnbull Stakes in his last two starts. He draws barrier 20 but that may be no issue so late in the day.
If you're looking for value, Young Werther is a good price and wasn't too far behind the favourite last start. Delphi looks a real chance and was mighty impressive in winning last weekend as well.
The Chosen One always runs well but weather may be an issue for him, a decent each-way bet perhaps.
