Melbourne Cup Field 2018

The final field has been decided following VRC Derby Day and the barrier draw done following VRC Derby Day.

The final field for the 158th running of the $7 million Group I Melbourne Cup (3200m) has been declared for Flemington racecourse on Tuesday 6th November 2018.

International raiders are again dominant in the field and in the Melbourne Cup Betting Odds. Of the 24 horses who will face the starter, 11 are overseas thoroughbreds, while Australasia can loosely lay claim to 13 of the contenders.

Prince Of Arran forced his way in to the final field by winning the Lexus Stakes on Derby Day, after an unplaced effort behind Yucatan in he Herbert Power Stakes.

The dominant favourite Yucatan will exit barrier 23 which has seen his popularity slide only slightly. while Caulfield Cup winner Best Selection is topweight for the 2018 Melbourne Cup and has drawn barrier 6.
