Caulfield Cup Carnival
Betting Odds. Betting Odds. Betting Odds.
With the Caulfield Cup being run on Saturday, 15th. October, let's have a look at how the horses starting at $4.00 or shorter fared at Caulfield last Saturday.
Cargo Cult - $4.00 - fifth of 16.
Lilando - $3.40 - ninth of 10.
Leica Falcon - $3.30 - first of 14
Perlin - $2.80 - seventh of nine
Shania Dane - $3.70 - fifth of 13
This is generally a familiar story during the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup Carnivals.
Backing horses at short odds loses a lot of money. Take short odds on Caulfield Cup Day about a "good thing" in a big field or a wide open race and you can guarantee you will be making a very poor value bet with the odds stacked against you.
1000 metres raffle races
1000 metres sprint races are often raffles. None more so than when there is a field of unraced two year olds like at Eagle Farm last Saturday
In this field of nine Unintentional $2.10, Brambletye $3.50 and Special Offer $4.00 were the favoured trio.
But the race was won by Remmla, who started at $26.00 with the bookies and paid $49.90 on SuperTab. It shows you how punters in this race were absolutely clueless - $49.90 in a field of just nine with a tote market set to 120%.
Take the tote cut out and the horse would have been close to $60.00.
