It’s become a real hot race in the past couple of years now it’s been changed to the last day of Melbourne Cup Week, and as you’d expect, some hot names are in the all in market for the Emirates Stakes (2000m).
Heading the market is the Cox Plate runner up Humidor, who will likely head this way post the Cox Plate again the stable have indicated that 2000m is his trip. He’s at $5.00, holding the call over Johannes Vermeer at $7.00, but that runner is likely to head down the Cups path again.
In terms of likely runners, Hartnell is probably next best and is rated at $13 alongside Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time. Tom Melbourne and Ambitious are at $17.
