Which horse is Teo Nugent riding in the 2021 Melbourne Cup?

Floating Artist has enjoyed a fruitful spring campaign, claiming three wins and finishing in the top three in his last two races leading up to the Melbourne Cup. The six-year-old gelding stepped up to 2500m last time out was only a nostril away from winning the Moonee Valley Gold Cup, so the form is encouraging. Can he upset Incentivise?
