Unbeaten colt The Autumn Sun has been installed equal favourite for the $2 million Caulfield Guineas (1600m) after the release of nominations for the Group One race for three-year-olds.
Traders have The Autumn Sun and Brutal at the head of betting at $14. The Guineas, run on October 13, received 267 nominations.
The Chris Waller-trained The Autumn Sun capped his juvenile season with a Group 1 win in the J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Doomben in June to take his record to three wins from as many starts.
The Hawkes Racing-trained Brutal, an impressive five-length winner at Caulfield on debut last month.
Caulfield Guineas trip booked with the old man in the members…… hurry up October 13. One of the best days racing.
