Tuesday’s Emirates Melbourne Cup should be another dandy, and several runners have faced the starter at Meydan. Red Cadeaux, second in the 2013 Dubai World Cup, the winner of the 2012 Hong Kong Vase, and the narrowest of losers in the 2011 Melbourne Cup, is drawn way out in 23 for the “race that stops a nation.” Royal Empire was a winner early in the 2013 Dubai World Cup Carnival and seeks to become the first winner of the race for Godolphin.
