THE all important box draw for Friday night’s Group 1 TAB Melbourne Cup (515m) at Sandown Park has been decided.

Pre-post favourite Aston Rupee has drawn box four in the $500,000-to-the-winner decider where he’ll exit directly outside Koblenz which has drawn box three.

Jason Thompson’s bid for a fifth Melbourne Cup enhanced at the box draw after Aussie Secret drew the coveted rails alley.

Thompson also has first reserve Typhoon Sammy which was denied a start in the final field after Koblenz and Jepara slugged out a dead-heat in the opening heat last Friday night.

Fastest qualifier Lala Kiwi, the only bitch in the final, has drawn box five for the finale after negotiating box one in her sizzling 29.24 heat romp.

1. Aussie Secret
2. Jepara
3. Koblenz
4. Aston Rupee
5. Lala Kiwi
6. Lakeview Walter
7. Tiberia Bale
8. Kinson Bale
9. Typhoon Sammy
