2016 Melbourne Cup Early Nominations & Official Order of Entry. Melbourne Cup final acceptances & weights.

2012 Caulfield Cup betting available now

Q: How is the final field of the Melbourne Cup decided, what are the ballot conditions?

A:The final field of the Melbourne Cup is determined by the board of the VRC subject to certain conditions. The VRC board, at its discretion, may eliminate a horse(s) from the final field of 24 in certain circumstances. If such discretionary elimination does occur, replacement of such a horse will be according to the balloting order with the next horse in the order of entry making its way into the final field of 24. Horses outside of the top 24 will not be promoted over other horses.


Q: Why are there no emergencies in the Melbourne Cup?

A: The Australian totalisator (TAB) does not currently have a facility to accommodate more than 24 numbers in the system, so there can be no number 25 or 26 etc. In other countries this is overcome by giving an emergency runner the saddlecloth number of a scratched horse, but this is not permitted in Australia as it is believed it would have a negative impact on turnover.


Q: When are final acceptances for the Melbourne Cup?

A: Final Declarations will be taken by 4.30pm on the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup. The final field and barrier draw are announced a short time later. Final acceptances are taken on the understanding the horse would be fit enough to race if the Melbourne Cup were held on the day of final declarations. The final field & barrier draw of this year's Melbourne Cup will be published HERE>.


Q: Are the winners of certain races guaranteed entry to the Melbourne Cup?

A: The winners of the following races in the same year are exempt from ballot and permitted an automatic entry to the Melbourne Cup should they decide to nominate:


VRC Lexus Stakes

MVRC Cox Plate

MRC Caulfield Cup


The remaining final acceptors shall be eliminated in the following order until the limit of 24 is reached:Horses (other than those above) that:

Reading the Melbourne Cup Form Guide:


Studying form is as much a process of elimination as it is about finding the horses you think have the best chance.


As well as the following formula, factors to consider are:


Track Conditions: is the track Good or rain affected? Some horses go better on firm or soft going, it might help you eliminate a horse on the fringe of your selections. Get more info about this from our Melbourne Track Report.


Fighting Fit: do a quick Google search of the news to see if any of your runners have questions over their fitness.

The MTR Melbourne Cup Formula:

Include any runner who:


!  - Ran on the Saturday before the Cup, regardless of where they finished.

!  - Ran first four in this years Caulfield Cup and/or last years Melbourne Cup.

!  - has won over 2400m or more in the last 6 months (since May) AND is carrying 4kgs or more under what they would be carrying at Weight For Age (4yo 58kgs 5yo+ 59.5kgs).

!  - Is an international visitor who has run 1st, 2nd or 3rd at Group 1, 2, or 3 (or an equivalent grade in that country) in the last 12 months & is carrying 57kgs or less.


But leave out any runner who doesn't qualify with any of the above and:


X  - Is carrying 59kgs or more (unless they're an absolute champion).

X  - Ran in a previous Melbourne Cup in any year but finished more than 4 lengths behind the winner.

X  - Has failed to ever run a place in two or more starts at 3200m or beyond.

X  - Is aged 8 years or more.


This formula does require a bit of time spent reading the form for the Melbourne Cup field so you can make your own decisions and act accordingly. However, this is only one person's opinion and we're not going to accept any liability if you get it wrong - if you get it right however, we will happily take full credit!
