The 2014 Melbourne Cup final field has been confirmed, and will see a classy and capacity group of 24 stayers battle it out for Australia’s major thoroughbred racing crown at Flemington Racecourse on Tuesday, November 4th.
Arguably leading the local contingent confirmed in the 2014 Melbourne Cup final field, Fawkner has returned to racing in scintillating form this time in; finishing an agonizingly-close second to Dissident in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) first-up before securing a second Group 1 title in the Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on October 11th.
Running on for a close second to Adelaide in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) last time out, the Reset gelding will have to find an extra gear if to overcome the likes of international raiders Admire Rakti, Cavalryman and Red Cadeaux; all confirmed in the 2014 Melbourne Cup final field.
The barrier draw for the 2014 Melbourne Cup is due to be completed at 7pm AEST on Saturday.
