The Melbourne Cup race takes place as Flemington Race 7 with a 24-horse field full of international raiders facing off for the $4.4 million prize money on offer to the Melbourne Cup winner.

With no early scratchings from the Melbourne Cup 2019 field the latest odds at Ladbrokes.com.au are led by the Chris Waller-trained Finche ($8.50) out to hand his master trainer with his first ‘Loving Trophy’.

Following Finche in the 2019 Melbourne Cup betting markets at $9 is the powerhouse Japanese-trained Caulfield Cup champ Mer De Glace ($9) looking to extend his brilliance out over the 3200m.
