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.

Third-place finisher, Prince of Arran, had won the Lexus Stakes on Derby Day to secure its place in the Melbourne Cup, leaving trainer Charlie Fellowes agonisingly close to a Melbourne Cup Carnival double inside four days.

In Australia, we aren't accustomed to wet weather racing so who will be favoured by a wet track or rain during the race?

"It is with sadness that we confirm that The Cliffsofmoher had to be humanely euthanised after sustaining a fractured right shoulder during the running of the Melbourne Cup at Flemington", Executive General Manager Jamie Stier said.

"This is huge for everybody". Godolphin has won hundreds of Group I races around the world but before today had never won the big one in Australia, despite more than 20 attempts.

The Cliffsofmoher is one of more than 100 horses killed on Australian racetracks each year. "And (wife) Cathy and myself have been looking around for a bigger house. and I said to one of the reporters yesterday that if I won I would buy Cathy a new house, so look out", said McEvoy.

One of sport's greatest hoodoos is no more and the billion-dollar Sheikh, whose earliest memory was galloping through the desert on a white stallion with his father, can finally say he is a Melbourne Cup victor.

That's because of increasing attention being given to The Everest in mid-October.
