Heavy rain has fallen at Flemington with jockeys in the first race on Melbourne Cup day saying visibility is a problem.

The second race has had to be delayed while officials wait for the weather to clear slightly.

Tuesday’s Cup will be run at 3pm and with the track in the heavy range it is expected to be the worst possible rating y race time.

Yucatan is an easing favourite and is now out to $6.50 while noted wet tracker Magic Circle has firmed to $7.50.

Chief steward Robert Cram says the rain is expected to ease by between 12.30pm and 1pm with the Cup scheduled for 3pm.

“We’re trying to avoid the most intense storms and it will also gives us time to reassess future times heading towards the Melbourne Cup,” Cram said.

“The Bureau of Meteorology say the front should pass and by delaying now it will give us an opportunity to access when the clearance happens.

“There’s no lightning on the radar.

“Clearly visibility is not great but we’re all working together and hopefully we can head towards the end of the program.

“It is still our intention to do our upmost to get the Cup run at 3pm.”

Long-time favourite Yucatan has eased and is now equal with noted wet tracker Magic Circle at $7.
