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.
