Best Wet Weather Horses Melbourne Cup 2018

Magic Circle is among the favorites for the 2018 Melbourne Cup at Flemington on November 6

"I am just so delighted".

Morrison admitted it was only for a split second that he thought Marmelo might have been going to win when he made his charge closest to the inside.

"I said to Kerrin last night, because I missed out when he won on Almandin when I was pregnant, "please win it tomorrow because I feel like I'm here and I missed out that year", she 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.

"I take a day off work every year", she said.

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

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy riding Cross Counter wins the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse on November 6, 2018, in Melbourne, Australia.

"We've been competitive, but we've learnt more on each trip about what will make us more competitive", said Appleby, who was saddling his third Melbourne Cup entry after stepping up from assistant trainer in 2013 following the eight-year ban handed to then Godolphin trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni for illegally administering steroids to some of his horses.

"It's such a huge thrill to win this for Sheikh Mohammed, to repay the faith that he showed in me", McEvoy said.


Favorite Yucatan, prepared by O'Brien, finished 11th, with the Irishman's other entrant Rostropovich fifth in a disappointing race for the master trainer.

"That's what it's all about, the learning curve".

McEvoy, like Appleby, was quick to praise Sheikh Mohammed. "I think I've got a kilo of water in each boot". "It's a dream. It has just been one of those unbelievable years".

It was Buick who was in the saddle when Cross Counter finished runner-up in the Great Voltigeur Stakes at York's Ebor festival - a performance that left the gelding at the very bottom of the handicap with just eight stone to carry in the race that stops Australia.

"I did promise (the kids) a swimming pool".

Cross Counter's historic victory was described by his British trainer, Charlie Appleby, as "everybody's dream".

At Ascot, racegoers will have the best of both worlds - live racing and the $7.05 million Cup at 12pm beamed on the track's big screen and across the racecourse, which this year features the new Flametree Garden area for general admission patrons.

The victory had strong a connection to Sheikh Mohammed's Darley stallion operation through his sire Teofilo for whom he became a 15th G1 victor.
