The Caulfield Cup is the highlight of the Caulfield Carnival and is viewed by many as the key lead-up race to the Melbourne Cup. 

The most notable winners of the Caulfield Cup include Northerly (2002), Might and Power (1997) and Doriemus (1995). 

Since 1991 only four gallopers have completed the Caulfield-Melbourne Cup double, Ethereal (2001), Might and Power (1997), Doriemus (1995) and Let's Elope (1991). 

While the Cup double has been out of reach in recent years, the Caulfield Cup provides an opportunity for local runners to press their claims and international runners to acclimatise to the conditions in preparation for the Melbourne Cup

The early favourite in all-in markets in the Chris Waller trained Finche. The son of Frankel impressed third-up, running a gallant second behind Kings Will Dream in the Group One Turnbull Stakes.

Mer De Glace leads the market for the international raiders on the second-line of betting and is looking for his sixth win on-the-trot.

His last three wins have come in Group Three company in Japan and if he can bring that form to Caulfield on Saturday, he's a genuine contender.
