16/10/2017 Bonneval to run in Caulfield Cup

Bonneval (Makfi), who was beaten for the first time in seven starts in Saturday’s Caulfield Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m), will contest Saturday’s Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m). The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained mare ran sixth in the Caulfield Stakes but was later diagnosed to be lame in a near foreleg and
with a laceration to her off-hind pastern. Racing Victoria veterinarians yesterday cleared the four-year-old multiple Group One winner to run in the $3,000,000 Caulfield Cup, for which she is the $6 favourite. “I’m not really sure what they are talking about as she pulled up in good shape and trotted up perfectly this (yesterday) morning,” Baker said. “There’s nothing amiss with her and she will be ready to run the race
of her life.”
