Racing Victoria (RV) veterinarians have today inspected all horses in the final field for tomorrow’s $8 million Lexus Melbourne Cup (3200m) to determine their suitability to race.
A total of 22 horses were passed fit to race with two horses to undergo re-examination by RV veterinarians tomorrow morning prior to 7:30am (final scratching time).
Delphi (Anthony and Sam Freedman) will be re-examined after presenting with lameness in his left foreleg.
Future Score (Matt Cumani) will be re-examined after presenting with lameness in his right foreleg.
A further update will be provided tomorrow morning (2 November) once the re-inspections have been completed.
