Melbourne Cup 2015 Start Time What Time Does The Melbourne Cup Start

Published on

The Melbourne Cup takes place on Tuesday, November 3rd at 3pm local time (4am UK time).


This year’s edition of the $6.2 million contest, known as the race that stops a nation, will be Race 7 of a 10-race programme at Flemington with upwards of 100,000 in attendance.

Japanese galloper Fame Game looks set to start as a short-priced favourite following an unlucky sixth in the Caulfield Cup as he bids become the latest international runner to win Australia’s biggest race.

Fame Game is part of another strong international contingent bidding to make it back-to-back wins for the visitors following Protectionist’s victory 12 months ago.

Among the visiting set to join Fame Game in the line-up are second favourite Trip To Paris, three-time runner-up Red Cadeaux, Snow Sky, Hokko Brave and Quest For More.

In the 24-strong field, the best of the home team contenders look set to include last year’s placegetter Who Shot Thebarman, his stablemate with Chris Waller Preferment, Max Dynamite, Amralah, Cox Plate runner-up Criterion and Almoonqith.

Caulfield Cup winner Mongolian Khan was set to bid join an elite band of horses to complete the Cups double, but a bout of colic has ruled the New Zealand galloper out of the Flemington showpiece.

Defending champion Protectionist was also ruled out of the race due to a bone problem.
