Before He Or She accepted late it was looking like it could be a match race:
Jake Norton the Head Of Racing at the Melbourne Racing Club has said they will proceed with the race even if there are just two runners in it, saying Darren Weir is yet to submit his acceptances for the race in which he had nominated stable star Black Heart Bart.
An hour before acceptances close @Caulfield for Saturday. One horse acc’d in the Caul Stakes. Assuming its Winx she may have to race herself
