Money for German galloper Articus in 2016 Caulfield Cup

articus racingGerman-trained galloper Articus has been sensationally backed to win Saturday’s Caulfield Cup in Melbourne.

From the moment Articus arrived on Australian shores online bookmaker Sportsbet has been swamped with support for the five-year-old.

The bookie had Articus at $51 in early Caulfield Cup betting, he is now into $11 equal fifth favourite.

Articus is trained by Andreas Wohler in Germany, the same trainer who guided 2014 Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist to victory.

The son of Areion ran fifth in the Group 1 Grosser Dallmay (2000m) in Munich in his most recent outing.

He took out the Group 3 Maxios Trophy (2000m) at Hannover at his previous start and has four wins from just nine starts to date.

The Ciaron Maher-trained Jameka heads 2016 Caulfield Cup betting at $3.40, with both Real Love and Scottish next on $8.00. Exospheric is next in the market at $9.00.

“Jameka has received the most backing, but the Caulfield Cup was always her mission,” said Sportsbet’s Will Byrne.

“Since Articus touched down and was confirmed as a starter there has been a groundswell of support and he’s now the second best supported runner.”
