McEvoy on Cross Counter wins prestigious Melbourne Cup 2018

Corey Brown rode Rekindling to victory in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington in 2017

Admire Rakti and Araldo were both killed in the 2014 Melbourne Cup.

The Melbourne Cup dam burst in spectacular fashion for the Poms as Cross Counter for Appleby got home over fellow Englishmen Hughie Morrison (Marmelo) and Charlie Fellowes (A Prince Of Arran).

Finche and Rostropovich finished fourth and fifth respectively, with Youngstar 5.75L back in sixth.

The Herald Sun reported that Racing Victoria's chief steward Robert Cram criticised the senior jockey.

The David Payne-trained Ace High followed up his poor Caulfield Cup showing with another disappointing display, finishing 28.15L away in 20th.

Godolphin's owner, Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, had spent a fortune sending horses to the "race that stops a nation" over two decades and now tastes victory after linking up with Newmarket trainer Appleby.

Horse trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed that his colt The Cliffsofmoher died during the Melbourne Cup.

Speaking afterwards, O'Brien said it was "very sad".

Xhaka confident Arsenal will finish in top four
Having arrived from Sampdoria this season, the Uruguayan midfielder has adjusted quickly and is a partner to the 26-year-old. We know that to get to that chance, you have to get the three points in games like we had against Crystal Palace.

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

"Charlie Appleby has done the most unbelievable job this year, huge credit to him and his team".

With a likely win pool of over R100 million, the Melbourne Cup, run at 06h00 at Flemington Racecourse on Tuesday morning, offers SA punters a chance to win big.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy celebrated his third win in the two-mile race, drawing level with active jockeys Damien Oliver and Glen Boss.

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

"Our thoughts are with animal lovers across the country who have been affected by this loss, and confronted by the very real risks posed by racing to the horses involved", RSPCA Australia spokeswoman Jane Speechley said.

Cross Counter had never started on soft or heavy ground and Appleby didn't have any more idea than punters whether the northern hemisphere three-year-old would fire or flop.
