Caulfield Cup runner-up Scottish will not be stretched to the 3200 metres of the Melbourne Cup and will instead run in the Emirates Stakes on the final day of the Flemington carnival.

Trainer Charlie Appleby said on Godolphin's website that he was happy to drop the horse back to 2000 metres given his consistent form over the distance in Britain this season.

Sheikh Mohammed's global operation still has several runners in contention for the Cup on Tuesday including the favourite, Australian-trained Hartnell, second to Winx in the Cox Plate.
