Caulfield Cup Exotic Bets

If you've ever wanted to put a novelty bet on the Caulfield Cup your wishes have been answered by the betting company Ladbrokes. They have a stack of specials available to sink your teeth into so click your heels up and go ahead.

Aussies vs The World

There's been an increasing amount of interest from international runners for the Caulfield Cup in recent years with Admire Rakti the last overseas winner in 2014 and before that Dunaden in 2012.

Admire Rakti wins the Caulfield CupThis year thirteen of the twenty runners (including emergencies) are locals. The International runners on Saturday are Best Solution, The Cliffsofmoher, Chestnut Coat, Jon Snow, Duretto, Red Verdon and Sole Impact.

Ladbrokes are paying $1.40 for an Australian trained horse to win the 2018 Caulfield Cup and $2.80 that we see an international winner on Saturday.

Back the Aussies at $1.40

Been There Done That

In this market you are betting that the winning jockey have already won the Caulfield Cup before. Think Damien Oliver riding Ace High, Dwayne Dunn riding Duretto, Zac Purton riding Red Verdon, Craig Williams riding Kings Will Dream, Kerrin McEvoy riding Youngstar and Corey Parish riding Jaameh (If he gets a run).

Ladbrokes are paying $2.05 that one of these previous winning Caulfield Cup jockeys will win the 2018 Caulfield Cup and $1.75 that a new jockey will flash past the post.

Back Past Winning Jockey at $2.05

Lloyd Williams wins the Melbourne Cup

Lloyd Williams First Horse Home

Lloyd Williams won the Caulfield Cup back in 2013 with Fawkner and has three live chances this year with The Taj Mahal, Homesman and The Cliffsofmoher. The market is asking you to predict which of these three runners will be the highest placed.

The best chance comes with The Cliffsofmoher paying $1.85 followed by Homesman at $3.20 with the outsider being The Taj Mahal at $4.50.

Winning Age

This bet pays out on the winning age of the 2018 Caulfield Cup winner. At 6 years old Boom Time beat the main fancies to win the Caulfield Cup last year but Ladbrokes are tipping a five year old to win this great race at the weekend.

There are eight five year olds in the field with the best chances coming with Cliffsofmoher and Kings Will Dream. Ladbrokes are paying $1.70 for a 5 year old winner, $4.20 for a four year old winner, $6 for a 6 year old winner and $11 for a 7 year old winner.

Taufan's Melody in 1998 was the first internationally-trained winner of the Caulfield Cup aged 8. Miracles do happen!

Back a five year old to win at $1.70

Young Kings Will Star

Can't decide between Kings Will Dream and Youngstar? Well, you don't have to! Back them both against the field in this market.

Ladbrokes are paying $3.25 for any of these two leading fancies to win and $1.33 for any of the rest of the field to win.
