Third declarations for the $2.5 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m), running at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 19, have left 41 horses still in with a shot at making the final field for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival classic.

Of those, five are prepared by Sydney’s premier horseman Chris Waller including the current $4.40 favourite Hawkspur.

Winner of the Queensland Derby during the winter, the now four-year-old Purrealist gelding ran the ideal Caulfield Cup lead-up when a close fifth to Happy Trails in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) at Flemington last weekend.

Waller also prepares the only other hopeful currently under double figures in the Caulfield Cup odds with $9 shot Royal Descent, the ATC Oaks winning daughter of Redoute’s Choice last seen finishing 11th in the Turnbull.

Following Waller’s duo in Caulfield Cup betting at $10 are then Marco Botti’s USA St Leger winner Dandino yet to race down under and the Roger James-trained mare Silent Achiever.

Others under $20 in the markets are then Mark Kavanagh’s Cox Plate hope Super Cool ($13), Turnbull third place-getter Fawkner ($14), highly rated import Jet Away ($15), the Clarry Conners-trained mare Dear Demi ($17) and Peter Moody’s promising French import Kesampour ($17).

See below for the top fancies in the latest futures Caulfield Cup 2013 odds, prices sure to firm following the weekend’s race results with two Melbourne events (Caulfield Stakes and Herbert Power Stakes) offering a Caulfield Cup ballot exemption to the winner.

The 2013 Caulfield Cup field of final acceptors will be released on Tuesday October 15 so stay tuned.
