The Melbourne Cup “the race that stops the nation” will start at 4pm today.

As with last year, when stringent new veterinary checks combined with the pandemic - kept a lot of internationals away, it’s a field dominated by locally-trained horses, with only four from abroad.

This is a make-up that will warm the hearts of some traditionalists, though laced with a good amount of European intrigue as well.

Crowds were banned from the 2020 edition of the race, while the 2021 Melbourne Cup had a capped capacity of 10,000 people.
