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.
