Caulfield Cup Nominations - 10 internationals head 47 second acceptances

  • 10 internationals among 47 entries.
  • Entries up on previous year.
Best Solution

Caulfield Cup (2400m) nominations feature 10 internationals among 47 entries at the second acceptances stage.

The 10 international entries include five currently within the top 18 in the Order of Entry and therefore guaranteed a run, although the Charlie Appleby-trained Emotionless looks set to miss the $5 million feature after suffering a set back.

Saeed Bin Suroor's Best Solution (Saeed bin Suroor), who is exempt from the ballot, Cliffs of Moher (Aidan O’Brien), Chestnut Coast (Yoshito Yahagi) and Duretto (Andrew Balding) are within the top 18 and look set to run.


Other internationals A Prince Of Arran (Charlie Fellows), Prize Money (Bin Suroor), Red Verdon (Ed Dunlop), Sole Impact (Hirofumi Toda) and Yucatan (O'Brien) need others to come out to be guarantee a starting berth.

The James Cummings-trained Avilius Godolphin runner was a notable withdrawal at the second acceptances stage, with a run in the Cox Plate now on the agenda leading into the Melbourne Cup for which he is ballot exempt.

The Liam Howley-trained Homesman and Darren Weir’s pair Kings Will Dream and Nights Watch are all exempt from the Caulfield Cup ballot and are among the second acceptances.

The latter pair are a third of Weir's six acceptors, but that is eclipsed by Chris Waller who has eight of the 47 entries including Unforgotten, Egg Tart, Youngstar, Count Octave and Finche.
