Melbourne Cup field could be in for a significant shake-up

October 31, 2018 4:09 am

Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup field could be in for a significant shake-up this Saturday with two horses that have yet to even pass the first ballot conditions for the race, set to make bold 11th-hour bids to secure spots in the field.

In total, there are 47 horses remaining in the hunt for the $7.3 million purse and only three of those – Azuro, Sixties Groove and Thinkin’ Big – have not met the qualifying conditions for the race.

But both unqualified horses Thinkin’ Big and Sixties Groove will have plenty of support from punters as they try and make it into the race.

The Melbourne Cup will be held next Tuesday at 5pm and you can watch it live on FBC TV and on FBC Sports.
