Melbourne Cup: UK galloper The CliffsofMoher put down after serious injury

The Laytown Races

But winning Australia's most famous race in the colours of Godolphin and Sheikh Mohammed is extremely satisfying for McEvoy, considering he spent many years as a retained rider for the global racing powerhouse.

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

The 8-1 chance Cross Counter, who broke the track record when winning the Gordon Stakes at Glorious Goodwood in the summer, won by a length from the Hughie Morrison-trained Marmelo, with A Prince Of Arran third for Charlie Fellowes. It was only Cross Counter's eighth start, but he had missed a top-two finish only once.

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

Cross Counter was the final victor of the Melbourne Cup after a nail-biting final, taking the lead in the very last seconds of the home stretch.

While Avilius' 22nd-placing may look like a flop on paper, the Godolphin galloper was severely interfered with when The Cliffsofmoher went amiss early in the race. Cross Counter was third-last on the first turn.

Arsenal now closer to Premier League's best - Emery
With Xhaka I am happy, because first he's a very good player, and he has a very good commitment for us. "I'm not interested, no". Coming away from Arsenal and being disappointed with a draw is a positive, and also the amount of chances we created".


The Cliffsofmoher is the latest horse to have died on Melbourne Cup day in recent years, joining Verema (euthanased on track in 2013), Admire Rakti (suffered a heart attack in his stall in 2014), Araldo (euthanased after breaking his leg post-race in 2014), Red Cadeaux (euthanased two weeks after falling in 2015) and Regal Monarch (euthanased after a fall in Race Four of 2017). "What a field to do it in".

Ladbrokes told punters, via its social media channels, that it was doing all it could to bring services back online as soon as possible, but it was unable guarantee they would be available in time for the main race at 3pm.

Appleby said the Melbourne Cup had been on his "bucket list for a long time".

"The third Melbourne Cup is a huge moment in my career, to win three is incredible".

It was the 158th running of the 3,200-meter race and had a purse of 7.3 million Australian dollars ($5.3m).

The horse's trainer, Aidan O'Brien, said he was relieved jokey Moore was unharmed.
