The Track: Caulfield is a tight turning circuit, on pace runners are often favoured at short & middle distance races.
Caulfield Cup Track Bias, Barriers: The 2400m begins in the home straight in front of the grandstand. Although runners complete a full circuit of the course enabling most to have their chance, the rail is usually out 6m after two days of racing at Caulfield (Caulfield Guineas & Blue Sapphire) in the same week. Horses that get too far back will struggle to gain a good position, inside barriers are a distinct advantage. The majority of winners in the modern era have been weighted in the bottom half of the field but with an increasing number of imported stayers being entered into the race class has become a more significant factor than weight in determining the winner.
