David Hayes’ racing team’s research suggests his exciting import, Jet Away, would have made nine of the past 10 Caulfield Cup fields. On his current rating of 106, Hayes figures he can plan his Spring campaign without being tormented about whether the horse will get a run in the race or not.

“That’s the hard part these days, getting into the field, but we’ve gone back and done the research and we figure he would have made nine of the past 10 Caulfield Cup fields,” Hayes told Racing Network.

Since arriving in Australia earlier this year, Jet Away has only raced twice for impressive wins in the Bendigo Golden Mile and the Listed Easter Cup at Caulfield.

According to Racing Victoria’s Chief Handicapper, Greg Carpenter, Jet Away is “well placed” when it comes to making this year’s Caulfield Cup field.

“You can never tell from year to year where the cut-off will be, but in terms of his rating of 106 you would say he’s well placed to get a run in the Caulfield Cup,” Carpenter told Racing Network today.

Carpenter explained the horse’s rating has gone from 96 to 106 since he arrived in Australia, courtesy of his two Listed race wins.

“He’ll resume in the Makybe Diva and if he wins or runs very well he’ll then go to the Turnbull Stakes,” Hayes said, explaining the horse’s Grand Final all Spring was definitely the Caulfield Cup.
