David Jones Cup Final Field & Barriers 2011

October 12th, 2011

The 2011 David Jones Cup final field has been released with 14 horses set to take to Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday over 2000m.

It’s a good assembly of runners which includes two horses which are also on standby as emergencies for the Group 1 Caulfield Cup.

This is a vital race at this stage of the carnival and will determine the fate of many of these horses.

Success here and it’s onwards to more black type in the final weeks of the spring, a poor run and it could be back to the handicaps or even to the paddock.

Trainers are desperate to have a big a team as possible still in action during the Melbourne Cup period so there’s no doubting all these runners will be primed to go come Saturday.

Looking through the final field for the David Jones Cup and there’s a few horses of note that really jump out at you.

Foreteller is one, he’s a horse that’s run at Group 1 level and dropping back here he looks well in it.

Another is Extra Zero, he won well tow starts back and after a tough time of it against good horses in his last run he’ll appreciate the return to Group 3 company.

The two potential Caulfield Cup runners in the field are Lucky Eighty Eight and Midnight Martini, the first is second emergency while the other needs four to come out.

Platinum Passion is another interesting horse, he just can’t draw a barrier though as he once again gets the outside draw.

Last start he also drew poorly but still managed to overcome it for an all the way win.

Other horses to watch out for at this stage include Base for Robert Hickmott and Testas Double for Ken Keys.
