Updated Melbourne Cup 2010 Field & Barrier Draw

The scratching of Bauer from the 2010 Melbourne Cup field this morning has adjusted the Melbourne Cup field and barrier draw for the $6 million handicap showdown scheduled as Race 7 at Flemington today.

Bauer was Melbourne Cup horse #18, so check any bets you had down to see if you Bauer was in your selections.

There are now just 23 horses set to contest the Melbourne Cup at 3:00pm (AEDST), but the numbers of the other runners will not change and they will all wear their original Melbourne Cup saddlecloth numbers.

The Melbourne Cup barrier draw has now been altered. The barrier number each horse in the Melbourne Cup will jump from this afternoon now moves in one as Bauer was drawn in barrier two.

The only horse not affected in the barrier draw is Descarado, set to jump from the inside gate one.

Below is the updated 2010 Melbourne Cup Field & Barrier Draw following the scratching of Bauer from the race.
