The Melbourne Cup is one of the most prestigious races in the horse racing calendar, with a huge purse of around A$8,000,000 up for grabs.
The race takes place on November 5 at 3pm Melbourne time, meaning a start time of approximately 4am in the UK.
Paddy Power are pricing Mer de Glacé as the favourite at 11/2 with the Japanese horse drawing barrier two to take his price up. It’ll be a huge win should he be first past the post, becoming the first horse to do the Caulfield Cup-Melbourne Cup since Ethereal in 2001.
Constantinople will be pushing Mer De Glacé close, with João Moreira riding, although the jury is out as to whether it could be just a year too soon.
Finche is a 10/1 outsider alongside Vow and Declare, while last year’s winner Cross Counter is at 12/1.
