It was perfect weather in Melbourne yesterday, but in typical fashion the weather has turned and it will be fairly overcast at Flemington, but the track is still in an excellent order for a surface that has hosted almost 30 races since Saturday.

A full field of 12 horses are set to contest the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m), but there has been a notable scratching in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m).

Caulfield Cup runner-up Scottish was set to start the Emirates Stakes as one of the favourites, but he was withdrawn from the race yesterday afternoon due to an injury to his near fore fetlock.
