Who are the favourites? A jockey rises a racehorse to victory, with the rest of the field in the distance well behind him. Form watchers took notice when Vauban smashed the field at Royal Ascot in June — now the Willie Mullins-trained galloper is the Melbourne Cup favourite.(Getty Images: Alex Pantling) As often happens in recent times, the hot favourite for this year's Melbourne Cup is one of the internationals — Vauban, trained in Ireland by Willie Mullins.
A top horse racing over hurdles, Vauban made headlines on the flat in June when he blitzed a field at Royal Ascot (over 2,816m) by seven and a half lengths, before qualifying for the Cup field with a win in the Ballyroan Stakes at Naas in Ireland.
However, Vauban has not run in Australia.
The 2023 Melbourne Cup field has been decided Irish galloper Vauban looks set to run favourite in Tuesday's great race, but who will be the toughest to beat? Explore our interactive form guide to the horses set to line up in the 163rd Melbourne Cup.
Read more Vauban's stablemate Absurde, who qualified for the Cup by winning the Ebor Handicap (2,816m) at York in August, is also high on the list of chances.
Other leading entries include Without A Fight — trained by Anthony and Sam Freedman — who won this year's Caulfield Cup over 2,400m, the Chris Waller-trained Soulcombe and the Japanese stayer Breakup, trained by Tatsuya Yoshioka.
Last year's winner, Gold Trip — one of five runners for the training partnership of Ciaron Maher and David Eustace — is back and in fine form, coming off a third in the Caulfield Cup and a fifth place in the Cox Plate. However, he will have to carry a weight of 58.5kg — the last horse to win at that weight or higher was Think Big back in 1975.
Of the 24 horses in the Cup field, only six runners have won over the Melbourne Cup distance of 3,200m.
These are Vauban, Gold Trip, 2019 winner Vow and Declare, the Phillip Stokes-trained Daiqansweet Junior, the Irish-trained Okita Soushi and the Matthew Smith-trained, French-bred True Marvel.
What's the weather forecast? As far as Melbourne Cup weather goes, this year's forecast is an each-way bet.
Last year, it was just 13C when the race ran on a rainy afternoon that produced some unforgettable scenes during a sudden bout of squally winds.
This year, it is forecast to be more than twice as warm with an expected maximum of 29C.
However, there is a high chance of rain again this year.
The Bureau of Meteorology says the showers are most likely to start in the afternoon and evening.
Thunderstorms could put a dampener on festivities for those not lucky enough to be in a marquee or grandstand, with the storms predicted to arrive sometime in the hour before the race and remain throughout the afternoon and into the evening.
