The Caulfield Cup is one of the biggest races on the Australian calendar, always managing to attract a top class field of runners. There are generally over 200 nominations for the Caulfield Cup, with 18 horses making their way to the line-up on the big day. With so much interest in this event, horses are chosen according to their prize money and recent form in specific lead up events.
The field for the 2018 Caulfield Cup will be announced in the week leading up to the big race, with final acceptances announced first before the final field of runners and emergencies is published. Once the final field and barrier selections are known, punters generally have all the information needed to try their luck.
Barrier selection can make a big difference in an event such as this, and punters are always keen for this information. While a wide barrier draw is definitely a concern on the Caulfield track, the inside is also generally not a good place to be.
The field and barrier draw for the 2018 Caulfield Cup is announced in the week leading up to the big race, which this year is being held on Saturday the 20th of October.
