Hugh Bowman will need to be at his brilliant best to win his first Caulfield Cup on Saturday after his mount, topweight and pre-draw favourite Anthony Van Dyck drew barrier 21 in the $5 million race.

Fellow Werribee resident Prince of Arran also drew wide in barrier 19, while Buckhurst (9) and Dashing Willoughby (2) fared better.

Five-time Group 1 winner Verry Elleegant will jump from barrier 11, with stablemates Finche (12) and Toffee Tongue (5) part of a three-pronged attack for trainer Chris Waller.
