2010 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw Finalised on Derby Day

The 2010 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw will be taken live at Flemington Racecourse an hour after the final race on the Victoria Derby Day card jumps this afternoon, and Races.com.au will be the first to report the highly anticipated event.

The finalised Melbourne Cup field of acceptors following final declarations at 5pm (AEDST) today will also be published here first listing the 24 horses confirmed to contest the $6 million Melbourne Cup next Tuesday, November 2.

The 150th Emirates Melbourne Cup field will be lead by today’s Mackinnon Stakes winner So You Think, while notable defectors already reported here at Races.com.au include Dariana, Faint Perfume, C’est La Guerre and Jessicabeel.

This brings the likes of Bauer and Herculian Prince into the mix, on the verge of making the final field of acceptors for the world’s richest handicap.
