Preamble

Top of the morning to you all and welcome to our live coverage of the Melbourne Cup, the race that will somehow stop a nation already on pause. The race that, we are told by various Melbourne-centric outlets, will reign as today’s undisputed centrepiece of a big wide world in which all its inhabitants await the result with bated breath. We are aware there are some other quite big things happening today, particularly in the US and Vienna. Gai Waterhouse, apparently, is not.

The queen of the track scene has been on 2GB this morning to lambast the Victorian government’s decision to ban spectators. “It’s quite ridiculous really, the way they’ve gone on in Victoria,” she said. “The Premier there should wake up and let people go on with their business. By all means social distance … but you can’t have the country cut off at the knees.”

We simply cannot have that. Nay, we say. So come with us on this deep dive of fan-free frolicking, fashion and turf action. And please do send us photos, videos and updates of what you are up to.
