The Group 3 Carlyon Cup opens the Caulfield quaddie on Saturday afternoon where a strong lineup has assembled to compete for $160,000 over 1600m. With 19 group race victories between the 11 runners the race is set to be one of the more competitive ones on the Caulfield card with plenty of these having high aspirations for this preparation. Twelve months ago Miss Siska went around as a short-priced favourite in the Carlyon Cup and is back in a bid to go back-to-back. The Carlyon Cup for 2021 is set to jump at 3:35pm AEDT.

The Grahame Begg trained Nonconformist is one of the class runners in the Carlyon Cup this year and attracted plenty of attention for his first up run last prep over the Caulfield 1400m in the spring. He has a phenomenal record at Caulfield having only missed the top three on one occasion, with two wins from six starts at the track. He has two wins from three starts over the mile and has won at Caulfield over the distance. He looks well placed first up here, and has two wins from three starts on rain affected tracks so we are expecting a big showing first up and shapes to be one of the best bets on the Caulfield card.

Miami Bound is a proper wet track specialist, three of her five career victories have come on rain affected going. With Jamie Kah hoping back on board for the first time since her victory in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup back on October 24, the pair look to be right in this up to their necks. Miami Bound has won first up in the past, and her first up run last preparation was an eye catcher when jumping out of the ground late despite missing the minor money. From barrier three we expect her to find a position in midfield, and if the track is playing fairly she will play a huge role late.

Neville Parnham sends his six-year-old gelding Neufbosc over the Nullabor to build on his impressive Perth summer campaign that sees him chasing a hat trick of wins here in the Carlyon Cup. Despite drawing barrier two he will look to settle towards the rear of the field and hope to unleash a turn of foot which will see him competitive here. Mark Zahra has had success on board previously and will be coming down the outside late on in the piece.
