The Queen has had one previous Cup runner, Arabian Story, who ran sixth in 1997.

Japanese stayer Admire Rakti, with an international rating of 117, is the highest-rated of the 148 nominations (13 more than last year) and is likely top weight when handicaps are declared by Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter on September 16.

Carpenter said he was pleased with the numbers, depth and quality of the nominations for the world’s staying championship.

Admire Rakti, to be ridden by Australian Zac Purton, and Bande, equal $16 second-favourites, are confirmed Japanese runners.

Since Delta Blues and Pop Rock quinellaed the Cup in 2006 there has been just one Japanese runner, Tokai Trick in 2010, because of strict quarantine regulation following an outbreak of equine influenza. Jordon, who predicted between six and eight internationally trained Melbourne Cup runners this year, said there would be several key races in Europe this month that would decide the final number of raiders.

Saturday’s group 3 September Stakes (2400m) at Kempton promises to be one such defining race featuring Cup entries Red Cadeaux, Dandino, Mutual Regard and Aussie Reigns. It will be a crucial test for a possible fourth Cup start for English stayer Red Cadeaux who has run second, eighth and second again last year in three previous visits.

Dual Cup-winning Irish trainer Dermot Weld has nominated last-start winner Pale Mimosa.

But Jordon said the mare was “ground dependent” and Weld is concerned Flemington may be too firm for her.

Germany may have its first runner since Caitano in 2001 in Protectionist, a high-class galloper who has has won four of his eight starts and has never been unplaced.

OTI racing principal Terry Henderson, who raced the 1995 winner Doriemus, said he has 11 nominated runners including international visitors Gatewood, Van Percy, Renew and Au Revoir.

Last year’s Cup-winning trainer Gai Waterhouse has three nominations, early $10 favourite The Offer, who resumes at Moonee Valley on Saturday, Greatwood and Bonfire.

Cups king Bart Cummings has only one entry, veteran stayer Precedence, in his bid for a 13th Cup win.

Meanwhile, Racing Victoria launched the logo of its new digital platform racing.com at a luncheon before the announcement of Cup nominations.

The logo depicts jockey Luke Nolen’s victory salute on champion mare Black Caviar in her BTC Cup win at Doomben.

 Carpenter declared Victoria the home of the staying horse as he announced stakes rises for the VRC St Leger (2800m) from $150,000 to $200,000, the Galilee Series final (2400m) which rises from $120,000 to $150,000 and the Andrew Ramsden Stakes (3200m) which increases from $150,000 to $200,000.
