Forty two horses remaining in Melbourne Cup field

Four horses among the remaining 42 vying for the 24 spots in the Melbourne Cup field have been the subjects of veterinary scrutiny.
Defending Cup titleholder Cross Counter and 2018 runner-up Marmelo, along with Ispolini and Southern France have undergone tests.
Trained in England by Charlie Appleby, Cross Counter has undergone a precautionary CT scan at the University of Melbourne Equine Clinic and passed suitable to continue his preparation.
His Godolphin stablemate Ispolini has been referred to the clinic to also undergo a scan after displaying soreness when inspected by Racing Victoria vets.
The stable has ordered further tests on Monday afternoon at the Ballarat Equine Clinic.
