Tom Melbourne out of G1 Emirates Stakes

Friday 10 November 2017, 12:07pm

The field for the $2 million Group One Emirates Stakes at Flemington has been reduced to 13 runners after the scratching of Tom Melbourne.

The Chris Waller-trained Tom Melbourne was withdrawn from Saturday's weight-for-age race on Friday due to lameness in his right foreleg.

Tom Melbourne, who was second in last Saturday's Group One Kennedy Mile, is one of two early scratchings from the Emirates Stakes.

The Charlie Appleby-trained Folkswood is favourite for the 2000m race at $4.80 after his last-start third to Winx and Humidor in the Cox Plate.
