Winx jockey Hugh Bowman Melbourne Cup runner-up Marmelo banned for a month

The winning jockey, Australian Kerrin McEvoy now has three Melbourne Cups to his name after winning the race on Brew as an apprentice in 2000 and Almandin in 2016.

UPDATES: THE horse that exited midway through the Melbourne Cup - the Aidan O'Brien-trained The Cliffsofmoher - has been euthanased.

"It is with sadness that we confirm that The Cliffsofmoher had to be humanely euthanised after sustaining a fractured right shoulder", racetrack executive general manager Jamie Stier said.

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

"Today's tragedy is a stark reminder of the risks these horses face every time they run, and highlights that behind the gloss and glamour of Cup celebrations there is a dark reality".

Cross Counter, a four-year-old bay gelding trained by Charlie Appleby and based at Newmarket, England, was quoted early at 10 to 1.

So too was Michael Walker on third placegetter A Prince of Arran, meaning all of the top three finishers breached the rules, along with three other riders in the race.

Regal Monarch, trained by Chris Waller, was euthanised after falling in race four previous year, while British stayer Red Cadeaux was put down two weeks after falling and breaking a leg in the 2015 Melbourne Cup.

"In that field alone, horses were hit with whips several hundred times at least, with the highest number of hits occurring in the final 100 metres, when they are already exhausted". Cross Counter was third-last on the first turn.

There was a point there I thought we might have won the Melbourne Cup. "What a field to do it in".

It was also a first win in the race for Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team, for whom Appleby saddled Masar to their maiden Derby win at Epsom in June.

During the trophy presentation, rain which had affected the lead-up to the race again started to fall at Flemington.
