There are just five competitors taking on hot favourite Russian Camelot in the 2020 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on Saturday.
After his big run to come second in the Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) first up and his arrogant win in the Underwood Stakes (1800m) last start, the Cox Plate favourite seems to have scared off his rivals, with just six horses lining up in Saturday’s Group 1 feature.
Russian Camelot has drawn barrier 4, which gives Damien Oliver the option of rolling forward as we saw in the Underwood, or sitting further back in the field.
There’s your current Ladbrokes Cox Plate favourite!
