2020 Caulfield Cup Future Racing Tips - Is Colette the mare to beat?

The Caulfield Cup is the first of the three spring majors, holding a carrot worth $5 million.

Having a max capacity field of 18 horses, we see many horses fighting for those last few spots in the field, including internationals who target the race each and every year.

This year the prestigious race will be held on Saturday, October 17 where Contrail is currently your $8 outright favourite.

Internationals have questions marks for whether they come over, but expect a dominant Australian line up.

One of the great handicaps in the world looks set to again be a huge lineup with some high quality internationals increasing the quality.

Caulfield Cup Futures Best Bet - Colette @ $11

A star 3YO Filly, she took out the Oaks in Sydney over 2400m in emphatic fashion, beating Toffee Tongue who was the Adelaide Oaks winner after that race.

That is proper Group One form for the staying 3YO's and she is clearly first or second with Russain Camelot in the pecking order.

You would imagine she would kick off over 1400m, getting fitness under the belt before we see her in race like the Turnbull or Caulfield Stakes before she takes on the 2400m.

She is a star in the making and with such a push button turn of foot, there will be very few horses that will match her over a mile and a half.

Caulfield Cup Futures Value Bet - Constantinople @ $34

After being arguably unlucky not to win last years edition, he will se himself in this years race with no penalty.

He was well below his best in the Autumn, but now a gelding, all reports are that he is back to his best.

If we see the same horse we saw last year, just more mature, he will just about start favoruite assuming he launches late in his lead up runs.

He is all class as we saw in the Spring and with natural improvement in the Australian climate, we might well see the next champion Handicapper and WFA horse in Australia take out this years Caulfield Cup.
