Melbourne Cup Live 2013
Race Date: 05 November 2013
Race Day: Tuesday 05 November 2013

The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s major thoroughbred horse race. Marketed as “the race that stops a nation”, it is a 3,200 metre race for three-year-olds and over. It is the richest “two-mile” handicap in the world, and one of the richest turf races. Conducted by the Victoria Racing Club on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria, the event starts at 3pm (daylight saving time) on the first Tuesday in November.

The race was first held in 1861 (see list of Melbourne Cup winners) over two miles (about 3,218 metres), but was shortened to 3,200 metres (2.0 mi) in 1972 when Australia adopted the metric system. This reduced the distance by 18.688 metres (61.31 ft), and Rain Lover’s 1968 race record of 3min.19.1sec was accordingly adjusted to 3min.17.9sec. The present record holder is the 1990 winner Kingston Rule with a time of 3min 16.3sec.

Location: Flemington Racecourse

Flemington Racecourse is a major horse racing venue located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is most notable for hosting the Melbourne Cup, which is Australia’s richest horse race. The racecourse is situated on low alluvial flats, next to the Maribyrnong River. The area was first used for horse racing in March 1840.

Qualifying and race conditions:
The race is a quality handicap for horses 3 years old and over, run over a distance of 3,200 metres, on the first Tuesday in November at Flemington Racecourse. The minimum handicap weight is 49 kg. There is no maximum weight, but the top allocated weight must not be less than 57 kg. The weight allocated to each horse is declared by the VRC Handicapper in early September.

The Melbourne Cup race is a handicap contest in which the weight of the jockey and riding gear is adjusted with ballast to a nominated figure. Older horses carry more weight than younger ones, and weights are adjusted further according to the horse’s previous results.

Weights were theoretically calculated to give each horse an equal winning chance in the past, but in recent years the rules were adjusted to a “quality handicap” formula where superior horses are given less severe weight penalties than under pure handicap rules.

Melbourne Cup Jockeys 2013

1. Glen Boss

Affectionately known as “Bossy” in racing circles, Boss is best known for steering Makybe Diva to three consecutive Melbourne Cup wins. He also has a knack of saving his best for the big stage.

Never short on confidence, Boss declared that Puissance De Lune will give him his fourth Melbourne Cup after he trounced his rivals last spring in the G3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

2. Ryan Moore

Great Britain’s Champion Jockey in 2006, 2007 and 2009, Moore has won feature races all around the world including France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, UAE and the US.

What he hasn’t won however, is the Melbourne Cup. Last year Moore rode the fifth-placed Mount Athos.

Moore will return this year to ride Dandino, who he recently rode to victory in the USA St Leger at Arlington.

3. Nash Rawiller

Legendary jockey Mick Dittman was known as “The Enforcer” and Rawiller has taken over the mantle.

Renowned for his strength and ability to get a horse home in a tight finish, Rawiller is yet to win a Melbourne Cup but has his best chance ever this year with Fiorente.

The stable jockey of Gai Waterhouse.

4. Brett Prebble

A former champion apprentice in Melbourne, Prebble moved to Hong Kong in 2002, often battling out the jockey premiership with Douglas Whyte.

He was courted by Lloyd Williams last year to ride Green Moon, which proved a masterstroke. Prebble gave Green Moon a perfect trail before pulling him out at the top of the straight to win by a length.

Prebble is still contracted in Hong Kong but will base himself in Melbourne for this year’s spring carnival.

5. Jim Cassidy

Cassidy turned 50 earlier this year but has shown no signs of slowing down. In fact, he gets better with age and has arguably never ridden better.

“The Pumper”, as Cassidy is known as, first tasted Melbourne Cup victory with Kiwi in 1983 before winning his second Cup in 1997 aboard Might And Power.

Cassidy will be hoping his catch-cry of “ring-a-ding-ding, The Pumper is king” will be heard again come the first Tuesday in November. His key ride at the moment looks to be Hawkspur.

6. Damien Oliver

Oliver is one of Australia’s most celebrated jockeys and is part of the elite club to have won the grand slam of Australian racing (Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Golden Slipper).

His two Melbourne Cup wins were aboard Media Puzzle (2002) and Doriemus (1995) while he has more recently ran second with Purple Moon (2007) and Pop Rock (2006).

He was also the regular rider of racing greats Schillaci and Alinghi.

There’s something in the air on Melbourne Cup day. For the life of me I can’t understand why the rest of Australia doesn’t follow Melbourne’s lead and call a public holiday. No one gets anything done, do they? The hard-core punters are studying the form guide for last minute tips, the casuals are trying to talk up the chances of this horse or that one, and the once-a-year gamblers are picking the horse with the best name.

Fiorente’s strong finish to the Cox Plate has seen the Gai Waterhouse trained charger cement it’s place as favourite, edging in front of the Marco Botti trained Dandino, who placed second in last weeks Caulfield Cup. Top English jockey Ryan Moore will ride the well travelled six year old, and he’s big chance of winning this one. Waterhouse would fancy her chances of breaking her Melbourne Cup drought, and Fiorente will most likely be shorter come race time.

Mount Athos is another who will be there or thereabouts when they storm past the clock tower. Trainer Luca Cumani has had 7 previous attempts to win the Cup, and following an unlucky 5th last year Cumani believes that this is his best chance yet to win his maiden Melbourne Cup. Craig Williams, one of the best jockeys in the game, will ride Mount Athos and I like the six-year-old gelding to be the first one home at around five past three on Tuesday arvo.

Brown Panther might be worth a look as a bolter. The English five-year-old has the speed and stamina to really get going on the flat track at Flemington, and might just have enough to sneak home.

For all the casual punters out there, stay away from the Bart Cummings trained Precedence. Old Bart might have 12 Cups to his name, but sentimentality and fairy tales don’t win races (well, not very often at least). Former winners Dunaden and Green Moon are also ones to avoid, as is the Darren Weir trained Puissance De Lune, who looked awful in a disappointing run in the Cox Plate.

For those who consider punting an annual event, why not have a flutter on the Clarry Conners trained Dear Demi? A couple of massive bets from owner John Singleton have seen the horse firm from $41 to $26, and if she can get up, Singo is looking at a $10 million payday. The Chris Munce ridden charge might not be the bookies favourite, but anything can happen on the first Tuesday in November.
