Each year hundreds of horses are nominated for the Melbourne Cup field. We give you the updated list of nominations which is now down to seventy two horses as we are four weeks from the race that stops a nation.

While Australian gallopers still take up the majority of nominations each year there has been a solid number of internationals nominating for the Melbourne Cup each year.

Once nominations close the weights will be released approximately a a week later, followed by the order of entry.

The final field for the 2017 Melbourne Cup will be released on Saturday, October 29 (Derby Day) along with the barrier draw.
