2000m – This start is just past the winning post in a small chute off the course proper. When the rail is True barriers are of little importance and most runners will have their chance. When the rail is out 5m or more there is an advantage to racing on the pace although it will be possible to make ground over the concluding stages if the pace has been keen up front.


2400m – Located at the top of the home straight, runners complete a full circuit of the course which usually gives everyone a chance when the rail is True. However, when the rail is out it’s if often hard to make up ground on the leading division and there is a distinct advantage to being drawn inside barrier 10.

The Caulfield Cup – Over the 2400m and on the third day of racing at this track in a week the rail is usually out 4 – 6m or more. The maximum number of runners in the Caulfield Cup is 18 with 4 emergencies. Ideal barriers are 3 – 10. Since the 1980’s only a handful of runners have won the Caulfield Cup starting from outside barrier 9. There is usually plenty of pace from the front runners, top weights starting from an inside gate can get too far back and struggle to make ground. The Caulfield Cup is a tough handicap event and the pace is strong throughout. On pace runners can manage to fall into a place, but the winner is usually a quality stayer who can run out the trip by finding something extra in the closing stages.

See the Melbourne Track Bias Report for more information on this weeks racing at Caulfield including official track conditions, scratchings & weather.

About the track: Circumference is 2080m, length of the home straight is 367m. The grass is kept long and lush at this track, the going is usually on the softer side of Good and suitable for most runners. After heavy rain, the conditions can become very sticky and runners will usually avoid the ground near the inside fence, particularly when the rail is out 3m or more. In sprint races, regardless of whether the rail is in the normal True position or moved out, we often see an advantage those runners who are drawn in and can race on the pace. When the rail is out, the winners will be those in the leading division.


1000m & 1100m – Located in a chute off the course proper on the side of the track. There is a long straight run to the home turn. Inside barriers have a slight advantage.


1200m – Similar to the 1000m & 1100m starts at the end of the chute. Barriers of little importance.


1400m - Starting from a short branch at the back of the course, this start forces runners into a turn after just 150m, runners who have gained a forward position before the 1200m have an advantage. For this reason, an inside gate is preferred, particularly when the rail has been moved out 5m or more.


1600m – Inside barriers have an advantage here with a short run of just 200m to the first bend and a long curved run to the 850m mark.


1800m – Located in the back section of the course with a run of 400m to the first turn, barriers are usually of little importance.

History: First Caulfield Cup run was run in the autumn of 1879, and moved to the spring in 1881. During the war years the track was closed and used as an army camp, with the Caulfield Cup being run at Flemington. Modern renovations to the track and the enclosed grandstand have made it one of the premier racecourses in Australia with top class facilities for the horses, club members and the public. Each raceday in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival has an official flower, for the Caulfield Cup it is a White Rose.

Caulfield Cup Statistics: Fastest time recorded - Diatribe 2000 in 2:25.3. 11 horses have won the Caulfield Cup - Melbourne Cup double, the last being the New Zealand mare Ethereal in 2001. Favourites have a good record, winning in five of the last 8 years. Imported horses to win: Fraar (1993) Taufans Melody (1998) & All The Good (2008). Rising Fast (1954) is the only horse to win the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate & Melbourne Cup in the same year.
