Likely field for the $ 5m Caulfield Cup

The field for Saturday week’s $ 5m Caulfield Cup (2400m) field is taking shape.

Smokin ‘Romans was the big mover in betting after winning Saturday’s Turnbull Stakes and he drops to 51.5kg in the Cup, to be run on October 15.

He’s now at $ 4.50 favorite with TAB.

Third acceptances for the Cup close at noon on Tuesday and an updated order of entry will be released on Tuesday afternoon.

The winner of this Saturday’s Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) and Might And Power Stakes (2000m) will get automatic entry into the Caulfield Cup.
