The Melbourne Cup field faces off in Flemington Race 7 at 3:00pm (AEDT) as part of the 10-race card for Cup Day, and the 24-horse field is rich with international staying talent once again.

Currently the locally trained Finche for Chris Waller, an imported son of Frankel who ran fourth in the ‘race that stops a nation’ 12 months ago, leads 2019 Melbourne Cup betting at around $8.50 through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The race fans are also keen to back the fairytale with Surprise Baby the current Melbourne Cup market mover backed in from $17 into $13 to emulate his sire Shocking who was the last Australian-bred Melbourne Cup winner back in 2009.

Can the locals hold off the raiders in the Melbourne Cup results? Will Cross Counter make history as the first back-to-back champ since Makybe Diva? Is Mer De Glace from Japan in-line for the Spring Cups double?

To help sort the pretenders from the genuine Melbourne Cup contenders below we’ve summed up the winning hopes of all 24 Melbourne Cup horses in this year’s classic.
