Likely 2012 Melbourne Cup Field

The likely Melbourne Cup 2012 field featuring the top 24 horses in the order of entry at the end of Victoria Derby Day is detailed below.

The only notable moves in the ballot for the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m), to run as Flemington Race 7 on Tuesday November 6, today was the official withdrawal of the injured Southern Speed and the ballot exemption of Lexus Stakes winner Kellini.

Note the below 2012 Melbourne Cup field is listed in order of the ballot and these will not be the official Melbourne Cup saddlecloth numbers come Melbourne Cup Day.

The best fancied of the Melbourne Cup field in the latest markets are the past two winners of the ‘race that stops a nation’ with Americain (2010) and Dunaden (2011) paying $6 and $7 respectively – the later to carry the 59kg top-weight.

Providing there a no surprise non-acceptors and that Racing Victoria officials don’t see it fit to remove a horse inside the top 24 in favour of one further down the order of entry with better form, the below Melbourne Cup field should be the same as that which jumps on Tuesday afternoon.

Stay tuned to Races.com.au for the official Melbourne Cup Final Field & Barrier Draw to be released later this afternoon.
