Incentivise to start the shortest Caulfield Cup favourite since 1975

The barrier draw may have ensured Incentivise does not start odds-on in Saturday’s $5m, Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) but he is still set to start the race’s shortest-priced favourite in almost 50 years.

The Peter Moody-trained gelding was TAB’s $1.90 favourite leading up to the draw but eased to $2.40 after coming up with the widest barrier in the field of 18.

Should he start that quote or shorter he will become the hottest favourite since Suleiman ran third at 6/4 ($2.50) in 1975. The only two horses to start odds-on in the Caulfield Cup were Tulloch, who won at 4/6 ($1.67) in 1957, and Tobin Bronze, who finished sixth at 8/11 ($1.73) nine years later.

1920: Eurythmic WON at 6/4 ($2.50)
1908: Pink ‘Un 8th at 7/4 ($2.75)

Incentivise, who was a $201 chance in TAB’s Pre-Nominations market before he started his winning spree, heads betting from Delphi, who drifted slightly from $6 to $6.50 after drawing to the immediate inside of Incentivise.
