The 2012 Melbourne Cup barrier draw has taken place for Tuesday’s $6 million staying race with top fancy Americain receiving barrier 12.

The French stayer is chasing his second Melbourne Cup title after winning in 2010 as is 2011 winner Dunaden who will run from barrier 16.

The pair have shown they are ready to again feature in Australia’s biggest race with Dunaden winning the Caulfield Cup and Americain running home strongly for fourth.

British stayer Red Cadeaux was beaten in tight finish by Dunaden last year and will have to overcome a wide barrier 18 draw if he is to go one better this year.

Luca Cumani‘s highly-rated chance Mount Athos was one of the top chances at bookmaker.com.au prior to the barrier draw and has received a favourable barrier eight draw for his first run on Australian soil.

He is one of two Cumani-owned runners in the field with the Australian-owned My Quest For Peace chasing Melbourne Cup glory from the inside barrier.

After drawing wide when favourite in the Caulfield Cup, top Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse would have been relieved to see the number seven when the barrier for Glencadam Gold was revealed.

He is one of two Waterhouse runners striving to deliver the Sydney trainer her first Melbourne Cup with fellow import Fiorente to make his Australian debut from barrier two.

Bart Cummings is striving for yet another Melbourne Cup win and the barrier draw was kind to his Americain import Sanagas (4) but not so Precedence (20).

Other notable barriers include Irish stayer Galileo’s Choice (11), Godolphin’s Cavalryman (6), Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven (17), Lloyd Williams’ Green Moon (5) and Cox Plate fourth placegetter Ethiopia (14).

The official 2011 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw was taken last Saturday live from Flemington Racecourse, home to the Melbourne Cup 2011 at 3:00pm (local time) this afternoon.

Unusual Suspect

Unusual Suspect is Horse No. 7 in the Melbourne Cup field and they are now drawn in Barrier 7

Originally a capacity Melbourne Cup field of 24 horses was accepted and therefore there were 24 Melbourne Cup barriers allocated.

Defending Melbourne Cup winner and clear favourite in the Melbourne Cup odds at Australia’s leading online bookmaker Luxbet is French raider Americain paying $5 to become the sixth horse in history to win multiple editions of the ‘race that stops a nation’.

In the Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw 2011 Americain was initially set to jump from gate 15 of 24.

This barrier draw for the Melbourne Cup betting favourite was four wider than the gate they jumped from 12 months ago to win last year’s Melbourne Cup.

However this morning there was a Melbourne Cup field & barrier update with #10 Mourayan officially scratched from the race.

Mourayan was drawn in barrier 14, which means Americain will now move into this gate as they look to salute for all the punters madly backing them for the win at Luxbet.

Note that the updated 2011 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw means:

-          Barrier 23 is now the widest gate with #20 Shamrocker ($51 Luxbet) stuck with the ‘visitors draw’

-          Barrier 18 which has never produced a Melbourne Cup winner now belongs to #8 Fox Hunt ($26 Luxbet)

-          Barrier 11 which Americain jumped from to win last year’s Melbourne Cup has #9 Lucas Cranach ($11 Luxbet) lining up in

-          Horse #7 Unusual Suspect ($41 Luxbet) lines up in Barrier 7 now – a fact for the superstitious punters at Luxbet!

See below for the full list of Melbourne Cup horses and their updated 2011 Melbourne Cup barriers.
