It was a relief for McEvoy, who was blocked when Aidan O'Brien-trained Cliffsofmoher pulled up lame early in the race.

The condition of The CliffsofMoher, which was being ridden by star English jockey Ryan Moore, is not yet known.

British stayer Cross Counter won the 158th running of the Melbourne Cup, handing the powerful Godolphin stable a first win in Australia's most famous horse race after 20 years of frustration. The horse was euthanised after the race at Flemington.

The Cliffsofmoher suffered a fractured right shoulder when injured in the Melbourne Cup, unfortunately could not be saved.

The Melbourne Cup was again been marred by the death of a horse on Tuesday, this time the Irish-trained The Cliffsofmoher.

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

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

The victor stormed down from the outside in the final several hundred meters for a length victory.

But the death of The Cliffsofmoher overshadowed the occasion. "What a field to do it in".

The horse was the sixth to die as a result of the Melbourne Cup since 2013.

Hugh Bowman was found guilty of three transgressions: careless riding for allowing his horse to cause interference to Japanese runner Chestnut Coat; using the whip 12 times before the final 100 metres of the race when the limit is five; and being a kilo over his assigned weight limit.

"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.

"I'd like to say I was going to repeat it, but it's going to be a pretty tall order".

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

Sportsbet on Tuesday said Perth punters were favouring favourites Magic Circle ($7), Yucatan ($7) and Marmelo ($13) but also had a soft spot for the outsiders.
