The 2011 Perth Cup is set to run today at Ascot Racecourse in Perth. Scheduled as Race 8 on the 9 race card, the Group 2 Perth Cup will jump at 4:30pm local time (19:30 AEDST) this afternoon. Currently the weather at the Ascot Racecourse is fine and the track is rated a Good 3.

Since the barrier draw on Wednesday the Perth Cup field has changed slightly with the scratching of no. 14 Telexden from barrier 16.
