Four mares to line up in Caulfield Cup

More Horse Racing News

New Zealand Oaks winner Fanatic is one of four mares who will take their places in the Caulfield Cup.

Trained by father-daughter combination Graeme Sanders and Debbie Sweeney, Fanatic arrived in Melbourne last week.

The four-year-old won the NZ Oaks on protest from Sofia Rosa who has returned home after a disappointing early Melbourne spring.

Fanatic, who missed a scheduled start in the Group One Livamol Classic because of a heavy track, is one of three Oaks winners in the Cup field.

Last year's VRC Oaks winner Jameka is the early favourite for Saturday's $3 million race with her Ciaron Maher-trained stablemate, 2014 VRC Oaks winner Set Square, also in the field.

Real Love, formerly from Perth and now trained by Darren Weir, is the fourth mare guaranteed a start with the field and barriers to be determined on Tuesday.
