About the Show

Back on 10 for the first time since 2001, this year’s live broadcast of the Melbourne Cup Carnival covers four huge days of racing – AAMI Victoria Derby Day, Kennedy Oaks Day, Seppelt Wines Stakes Day and of course the race that stops the nation, the Lexus Melbourne Cup Day.

With a multi-studio set-up across Flemington Racecourse, viewers will get unprecedented access to jockey’s, trainers, owners, celebrities and of course all the fashions on the field over the Carnivals’ four days.

International racing expert, Francesca Cumani, will be leading the field when she joins 10 Sport as co-host for this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival coverage.

Since 2009, Francesca has been helping to bring all the insight and colour of the Cup to Australian television audiences, sharing her informed commentary and pre and post-race analysis.

Outside of Australia, Francesca has cemented herself as a racing media icon, co-hosting ITV’s racing coverage in the UK and previously hosting Winning Post and Espanol’s Al Galope on CNN International.
