Caulfield Cup Odds 2018 - Kings Will Dream heads Caulfield Cup early markets

  • Weir and Waller with strong hand in early markets.
Boom Time ridden by Cory Parish wins the Caulfield Cup

Darren Weir’s talented import, Kings Will Dream, is a clear favourite for this year’s Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) which will be run on Saturday, October 20. 

The rising five-year-old son of Casamento is unbeaten in five Australian runs including a dominant five-length victory in the Mornington Cup (2400m) for which he earned ballot exemption for the Caulfield Cup. 

Kings Will Dream is already back in work ahead of the spring carnival, and Weir’s Warrnambool stable foreman, Jarrod McLean told racing.com, the Caulfield Cup favourite has come back in great order. 

"He (Kings Will Dream) is great, he's strengthened up and he's certainly taken that next step to acclimatise, his coat is already through and he looks outstanding,” McLean said.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes and CrownBet may have agreed on Kings Will Dream being the favourite, but further down the line, the markets differ significantly for the $5 million feature.

Reigning Caulfield Cup champ Boom Time is a $21 chance with both bookmakers, but 2016 winner Jameka is at $21 with Ladbrokes and nearly double that with CrownBet at $41 as she attempts to come back from injury. 

Others that are high in market order include Chris Waller’s QLD Oaks winner Youngtar and ATC Oaks winner Unforgotten, David Payne’s Victoria Derby winner and ATC Oaks runner-up Ace High, as well as ATC Derby winner Levendi and European galloper Marmelo who ran an eye-catching 6th in last year’s Caulfield Cup. 

However, trainer Hughie Morrison is likely to bypass the Caulfield Cup with Marmelo and have his stayer tackle the Melbourne Cup while fresh.

Kings Will Dream $8.50
Ace High $16
Youngstar $16
Boom Time $21
Hiyaam $21
Humidor $21
