The Ciaron Maher trained Jameka has tightened her hold on Caulfield Cup betting after the final field was announced today.
Jameka has firmed from $3.40 into $3.30 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
She is favourite and is a great chance to end the success of the invaders.
Kiwi Mongolian Khan won the race last year and the ill-fated Japanese stayer Admire Rakti, the previous year.
The headline act for the overseas contingent is German stayer Articus, who has been heavily backed and overnight firmed from $11 into $9.00.
Darren Weir’s former West Australian mare Real Love is the $8.00 second favourite.
“Jameka has done everything right this campaign and was far from disgraced when she finished second to Hartnell last start. It’s doubtful whether anything will press her for favouritism, but the money continues to roll in for Articus and he could be a lot closer to her in betting by race time,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
