The Charlie Appleby-trained gelding stormed down the straight from the outside to haul in runner-up and last year's favorite Marmelo by a length, with A Prince of Arran third in the A$7.3 million ($5.26 million) handicap.

Cross Counter's win came 30 years after Sheikh Mohammed began his Melbourne Cup quest with Authaal who carried his maroon and white colours in 1988 and 20 years after Faithful Son became Godolphin's first runner.

But it was also noted in the coverage that the horse frequently did this before races, including when he ran without incident last start in the Caulfield Cup to finish third.

It's believed The CliffsofMoher suffered a fractured right shoulder.

He returned previous year, with success, and for the 2018 spring carnival had an early victory with Jungle Cat at Group One level.

"I'm just lucky I can ride light on these lovely stayers prepared unbelievably well by Godolphin and Charlie Appleby".

"Charlie and myself used to travel to Doncaster and Chester and all of the tracks up north in England, back when I was over there riding, and all of those miles meant this, winning the Melbourne Cup".

Speaking with an SES officer, the "police liaison" spokesperson for the group said they were there because they thought focus was misplaced on the famous race. I can't believe it - I'm over the moon.

A decision to target the Melbourne Cup fresh this year has nearly achieved the dream result for connections of English-trained stayer Marmelo at Flemington.

The $6.2 million race was won by Cross Counter, followed by Marmelo and A Prince of Arran.

"I'm just in the very fortunate position to have a great team behind me".

"I'm getting wet here but I don't give a stuff because I'm enjoying winning my third Melbourne Cup", McEvoy said.

"I'd like to say I was going to repeat it, but it's going to be a pretty tall order. Melbourne see you next year", Fellowes, who is the chairman of Newmarket Open Weekend, wrote on Twitter after the race.

Jamie Stier, Racing Victoria's manager of integrity services, confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon, The Age reported.

As for Appleby, who is already contemplating a successful defence of the Melbourne Cup in 12 months time, he was full of praise for McEvoy.

"RSPCA Australia has long voiced its concerns about the welfare of racehorses, including the use of inhumane devices such as whips and tongue ties, as well as the risk to injury and death during races".

Six times Melbourne Cup winning owner Lloyd Williams is still very confident that McDonald will be able to find the right path from the twenty-three gate and still thinks Yucatan will be very hard to beat.
