Almandin will launch his bid for back-to-back Melbourne Cup wins from a double-digit barrier.

One of six horses owner Lloyd Williams will have in Tuesday's race, Almandin will start from gate 14 after winning from barrier 17 last year.

Topweight Hartnell, third in 2018, has drawn barrier 12 while Gai Waterhouse's Cismontane has stall 17 after sneaking into the field following his Lexus Stakes win on Saturday.
