Royal Empire is the lone entry for Godolphin in the 2013 Melbourne Cup, which will take place at Flemington Racecourse tomorrow November 5.

The four-year-old has not placed worse than second this campaign, with his most recent result seeing him finish behind Secret Number in the Group 3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes at Ascot on October 5, 2013.

Royal Empire has won five of his 13 race starts and has an exceptional place percentage of 87%.

The Teofilo entire is currently paying odds of $38 at Ladbrokes.com.au with their Double The Odds market.

Royal Empire has drawn barrier 11 for the 2013 Melbourne Cup and will be ridden by in-form jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the race.

Tomorrow will mark Royal Empire’s first attempt at both the 3,200 metre distance and the Flemington track.

Join up to Ladbrokes.com.au in order to receive a bonus worth up to $500 to spend on the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

Furthermore, you can claim Double The Odds on the race!

A Double The Odds bet on Polanski of $50 would have returned a staggering $550 cash into your betting account in last weekend’s Victoria Derby!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up to Ladbrokes.com.au and experience Double The Odds now.
