Every year the Melbourne Cup order of entry becomes a major talking point between racing fans as horses vie for a start in the race worth more than $6 million dollars.
24 horses can run in the Melbourne Cup Field. Below are the runners who are nominated for the race and where they sit in the order of entry into the field.
Runners marked in GREEN are ballot exempt and have a guaranteed spot in the field.
Runners marked in RED are ruled out of the race due to injuries or bypassing race.
Runners marked in BLUE are unlikely to run in the race.
Runners marked with NP have not passed the ballot clause.
There is no current Order Of Entry for the 2017 Melbourne Cup.
