While his glamorous wife Rebecca was busy working as Myer Racing Ambassador, Chris Judd used his time at Derby Day at Flemington in Melbourne at the weekend to catch up with former West Coast Eagles mate Dean Cox.

Cox is just one of a number of high-profile Perth identities who have made the annual pilgrimage to the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Among those who have headed over for tomorrow's Melbourne Cup are Nigel and Denise Satterley, Lesley Hart, Rhonda Wyllie, Karen and Ray Wardrop and Julie Bishop.

With Nicole Kidman stealing the spotlight at Derby Day, a raft of international celebs and identities are expected to be at the Cup, including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, former The O.C. star Mischa Barton, who will be dressed by Perth designer Aurelio Costarella, Revenge star Ashley Madekwe, actress Rose Byrne, soccer star Alessandro Del Piero and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong.
