The Melbourne Cup date is the same every spring with the first Tuesday of November set aside for the world’s richest handicap, the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m).

The capacity Melbourne Cup field drew 24 stayers but is down two after Sea Moon (Robert Hickmott) and Cavalryman (Saeed Bin Suoroor) came out with respective setbacks.

Melbourne cup betting odds at Ladbrokes.com.au on the famous two mile dash are still led by the Caulfield Cup winner Admire Rakti out form $4.80 to $6 to become the first Spring Cups double winner since Ethereal (2001).

The Japanese-trained galloper is also looking to salute for his country for the first time since Delta Blues and Pop Rock ran the 2006 Melbourne Cup quinella for Japan.

The favourite is one of 10 remaining international hopes, one up from last year, who are out to steal the ‘Loving Trophy’ from the top local chances including Cox Plate runner-up Fawkner ($7.50) who ran sixth off a Caulfield Cup win 12 months ago and Kris Lees’ in-form mare Lucia Valentina ($7.50).

With such a quality field facing off then below we sort your top hopes from your no hopes in just two words per horse, saving you hours of scrolling through the 2014 Melbourne Cup form guide and history.
