The final 24-horse Melbourne Cup 2012 field (3200m) has been announced, with the prestigious Group 1 staying race to take place at Flemington on Tuesday.

This year’s Melbourne Cup field is considered to be one of the strongest in recent times and contains no surprises.

Heading the field are French former Melbourne Cup winners Americain and Dunaden who are the favourites at bookmaker.com.au for the $6 million staying test.

One of the biggest talking points of this year’s Melbourne Cup field is the inclusion of Chris Waller-trained gelding Kelinni who earned his spot in the field by winning the Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington today.

The British import will be ridden by Glen Boss and received no penalty for his Lexus win meaning he will carry just 51kg.

In past years there have been major attrition rates leading into the announcement of the Melbourne Cup field but just 2011 Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed was withdrawn from the top 24 horses today.

It is a star-studded field dominated by international horses including 2011 runner-up Red Cadeaux, Luca Cumani-trained pair Mount Athos and My Quest For Peace, American St Leger winner Jakkalberry and the Godolphin-owned Cavalryman.

Prominent locally-trained horses in the field include Cox Plate fourth placegetter Ethiopia, Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven, 2010 runner-up Maluckyday and Lloyd Williams-owned pair Mourayan and Green Moon.

High profile Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse is still striving to achieve her first Melbourne Cup victory and has accepted with both Caulfield Cup failure Glencadam Gold and her recently acquired import Fiorente.

Legendary Australian trainer Bart Cummings narrowly missed out on getting Dare To Dream into the field when he finished second to Kelinni in the Lexus Stakes but will still have two runners with Precedence and American import Sanagas.

Cummings is a Melbourne Cup legend having won 12 titles with the most recent Viewed in 2008.

Others in the field include Irish stayer Galileo’s Choice, Team Hawkes’ Niwot, Leon Corstens-trained four-year-old Zabeelionaire, imports Winchester and Voila Ici and Michael Kent-trained pair Unusual Suspect and Tac De Boistron.

French pair Brigantin and Shahwardi were considered big chances if they were to make the field but connections paid dearly for not running in today’s ballot exempt races as did Godolphin who saw Lost In The Moment miss out.

Ciaron Maher-trained gelding Moudre moved into the final 24 when Southern Speed was withdrawn this morning but was the unlucky runner to make way for Kelinni.

Trainer Peter Moodyis looking forward to the task of putting her English opposition to shame and demonstrating once and for all that she is the best race horse in the world.

“It is strange that we have to travel three-quarters of the way around the world to race inferior opposition for inferior prize money so she can stamp her greatness,” Moody said.

However, it appears domination on a world scale is what it will take to prove her status amongst the world’s top horses, including Frankel.

Frankel won the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot earlier this week by an unbelievable 11 lengths.

Moody does not want to risk extending Black Caviar to that degree.

“I’d love nothing more than to see her come out and win by 10 or 11 lengths,” he said.

“But we won’t be doing anything that might be to her detriment.

“The Poms have been using the Aussies as cannon fodder for 150 years, so we’re not going to put on a show just for them.

“If we’re going to let her rip, we’ll do it at home. If she wins by a quarter-of-an-inch, it’ll do us.”

The five-year-old mare has won all of her 21 race starts in Australia and will be out to extend that winning run to 22 this weekend.

It will be the fifth Group 1 in a row for Black Caviar, who has won an astounding 11 in total.

After her Diamond Jubilee run, Black Caviar will be considered for a start in the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket Racecourse on July 14.

However, it is looking more and more likely she will be placed straight into quarantine on Saturday night following the Diamond Jubilee to allow her time to prepare for her Melbourne spring carnival campaign.

Black Caviar's next race will be the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot

The Peter Moody-trained Bel Esprit five-year-old has captured the hearts and minds of race fans and punters not only around Australia but across the globe, Black Caviar undefeated in her stunning 21 career start to date.

An 11 time elite level winner the superlative sprinter has amassed over $5.7 million in prize money during her reign, connections testing her on the international arena this Saturday in the £500,000 Grade 1 Golden Jubilee Stakes (1200m).

Last seen winning the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville on May 12 Black Caviar will again be ridden by her regular hoop Luke Nolen on Saturday, Nolen with previous winning form at Ascot.

Having had over a week to settle into her English surroundings Black Caviar has reportedly been thriving at her Newmarket base and is ready to take on her rivals at the undulating Royal Ascot track.

Unsurprisingly the Aussie bookies are taking no chances on the queen and our No. 1 recommended sportsbook bookmaker.com.au have Black Caviar as the odds-on $1.22 favourite in their Diamond Jubilee Stakes odds.

Her two closest rivals are both currently at a quote of $9 with Bated Breath and Moonlight Cloud.

The Roger Charlton-trained local Bated Breath comes off a first-up win at Haydock Park and is also accepted for Wednesday morning’s Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes (1000m) at Royal Ascot, for which another Aussie Ortensia is the favourite runner.

Moonlight Cloud meanwhile is a classy filly from France and also comes off a resuming win having won a Group 3 feature over 1400m at Longchamp on June 2.

The next shortest priced rival is then James Fanshawe’s Rock Of Gibraltar stallion Society Rock at $14.
