Racehorse The CliffsofMoher Put Down After Suffering Fractured Shoulder in Melbourne Cup

Magic Circle ridden by Fran Berry won at Sandown Park in May Six things to know about the 2018 Melbourne Cup race

The gelding could be back next year but is certain to carry a heavier weight if he runs after sneaking into this year's race with just 51 kilograms.

And for everyone doing an office sweep, the last horse in the Cup was Red Cardinal.

A win for Marmelo would have completed a dream run for jockey Hugh Bowman, who has enjoyed a marvellous ride aboard superstar mare and four-time Cox Plate victor, Winx.

To place the significance of the outage in context, Sportsbet revealed that 26,000 bets were placed in a single minute leading into the 2017 Melbourne Cup.

Kerrin McEvoy took out his third career Melbourne Cup on Cross Counter but he may be feeling the pinch after a stunning pre-race promise to his wife Cathy.

It was great to see him running round today. "One thing about the All Blacks is that you are going to have to score tries". It settles down the boys to know that he's there'.

"When I saw him down the back I thought he had to do a lot", Appleby said.

McEvoy managed to avoid serious trouble at the rear of the field as The Cliffsofmoher, ridden by Ryan Moore, was injured, before the Australian brought Cross Counter from near last and switched wide to launch his challenge in the straight to blitz the field in the closing stages.

A Prince of Arran, who had qualified for the Cup only on Saturday when he won the Hotham Handicap on Derby Day, had been in the mix for a long time but could not match their finish, coming third. It was also 20 years after Faithful Son became the first runner for the Godolphin operation in Melbourne.

"It's a race we've been trying to win for many years now".

"Before they've even finished maturing, these 500-kilogram [1,102 pounds] animals are forced to race at breakneck speeds while being whipped and pushed past their limits, supported on ankles as small as those of humans". The victor of the first Cup, Mr Marshall, owner of Tory Boy, described it as a "monstrosity", according to the National Museum of Australia.

It said the video was originally posted elsewhere over the weekend and has since been deleted. Louis was found to have live-streamed his passengers to the internet without their consent.

"The Melbourne Cup is the disgrace that stops a nation".

Magic Circle, a pre-race favorite, was already a six-time victor when he joined Williams' 100-strong string at Dominion Stables and looked the part for the British trainer and owner Marwan Koukash after claiming stellar victories in the Chester Cup and at Sandown this season before booking his place in Tuesday's headline event at Flemington.

"What a horse", Morrison said of Marmelo.

Cross Counter's win has spared Melburnians the sight of Koukash's outlandish planned celebration.

"We thought we almost had it, as I assume Charlie (Appleby) did".

Tim Berners-Lee wants to fix the web, 30 years on
They're meant to ensure a free and open web for all, but some concerns have been raised as to their currently-vague nature. It's a delicate balancing act, but limiting some freedoms could end up creating a fairer, more open Web.

"That's going to put our name out there a little bit more and hopefully now that we can show what we can do, we can build on this. I didn't know what to expect really", Appleby admitted.
