Originally there were 140 stayers making up the nominations for the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, a number increased this week with the addition of four late nominees that connections paid the $5,500 late entry fee for.

Increasing the potential number of international raiders in the final 24-starter Melbourne Cup field this year is the Jean-Claude Rouget-trained Halling stallion Loresho raced by his Highness The Aga Khan.

The five-year-old French galloper should he make it all the way to Melbourne Cup Day will be looking to join Americain (2010) and Dunaden (2011) who went back-to-back for France in the world’s richest handicap.

Current all-in Melbourne Cup betting markets at are firmly led by the Japanese-trained Fame Game ($9) while Loresho is installed as a $51 outsider for the win.

The stallion was last seen racing on August 30 in the Group 2 Grand Prix De Deauville (2500m) behind Siljan’s Saga on the back of a Group 3 win at the same Deuaville track the run before.

The other three late Melbourne Cup entries and their price in the futures Melbourne Cup odds are Chance To Dance ($34), and the Archie Alexander-trained stablemates Renew ($67) and Ruscello ($67).

The Robert Hickmott-trained Chance To Dance is the right age for a Melbourne Cup win being a six-year-old son of Teofilo, six-year-olds having won four years on the trot from 2010 – 2013 before five-year-old German raider Protectionist (2014) took it out last year.

Raced by Team Williams, Chance To Dance was last seen beating home stablemate The United Stakes over the Moonee Valley mile first-up last weekend and has winning form up to 2400m.

Hickmott and owner Lloyd Williams last won the Melbourne Cup in 2012 with Green Moon and now have nine chances to take it out again this season with other notable hopes from the stable including the aforementioned The United States who has won four of his nine starts so far and British import Observational who won his race debut down under in the Listed Golden Mile (1600m) at Bendigo back in March.

Renew is another six-year-old import now in the mix, the Dansili gelding a genuine two miler having won last year’s Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) only four runs into his Australian career before a third to Tanby in the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) in March.

Cape Cross seven-year-old Ruscello hasn’t won a race since the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington in 2013 and was last seen crossing sixth behind Our Voodoo Prince in mid-August over 2000m at Caulfield.
