The Queen's daughter-in-law - who has two children Lady Louise Windsor, 15, and James, Viscount Severn, 11, with husband Prince Edward, 56 - completed her outfit with a pair of black gloves. The Countess of Wessex, who was joined by an aide, opted for minimal makeup and wore her brown hair scraped back in a loose ponytail.

However, the celebrations were muted as news began to circulate the race's top-rating horse, Anthony Van Dyck, had broken down after failing to finish the race.

Racing Victoria's executive general manager Jamie Stier later confirmed on Tuesday afternoon the horse had been euthanised after sustaining a fractured fetlock.

'The horse received immediate veterinary care, however he was unable to be saved due to the nature of the injury sustained,' he said.

'Our sympathies are extended to the owners of Anthony Van Dyck, trainer Aidan O'Brien and all his staff who cared for the horse and are greatly saddened by their loss.'

Jockey Hugh Bowman dismounted and a horse ambulance met Anthony Van Dyck on the track.

Horrified spectators took to social media after spotting the horse's injury, with one saying she saw its leg 'hanging off the fetlock (joint near base of the leg).'

Melburnians can have two adults plus dependents from one household visit their house, with Cup organisers selling home-delivered gourmet food and alcohol packs curated by the likes of Neil Perry.

Alternatively, race-goers can opt to flock to parks and public gardens in groups of up to 10 to make the most of the fine weather.

Pubs and bars are also hoping to cash in on Tuesday's traditionally bumper trading day after finally reopening to customers last week.

Dozens of businesses are hosting Cup day-themed events across the city, with outdoor and indoor dining limits of 50 and 20 respectively.

Fashion is always a feature of the entire four-day carnival and this year's Cup competition will go ahead with a twist.

The rebranded Fashion on The Front Lawn will allow trendsetters and dress-up types to don their finest fascinators, frocks and suits from the comfort of home.

Despite the absence of on-track betting, serious and occasional punters across the nation are expected to have a flutter to the tune of millions on the main race.

TAB expects to process over 100,000 wagers a minute at peak times on Tuesday, its biggest trading day of the year.

'We take as many as 20 million bets on the day,' Tabcorp's wagering managing director Adam Rytenskild told AAP.

Earlier, the Melbourne Cup field was reduced to 23 runners, after the late scratching of one of the runners on Tuesday morning.
