Get To Know the Internationals: Caulfield Cup 2016: A look at the International horses
Race favourite Jameka has drawn awkwardly in barrier 13 which has opened up the race further for the internationals Exospheric (barrier 3) and Scottish (barrier 7) who have both drawn inside her.
Our Ivanhowe drew well in barrier 6 and should get a good run throughout the race whilst others who have also drawn well are Tarzino in barrier 4 who will look to bounce back from a poor preparation so far, Almoonqith in barrier 2 who will need rain to have a chance of winning whilst Sacred Master looks like she will be right in the finish after drawing barrier 8.
Both the emergencies have drawn wide, so Jameka will jump from barrier 13 if there are no scratchings from the 18 runners currently in the field.
Sir John Hawkwood looks to be the forgotten horse in the race and he won’t have to do any early work from barrier 5.
