THE 2018 Melbourne Cup has been run and won by Cross Counter and we have the correct finishing order for the race.
The international runners, especially those from the UK, dominated the placings with Cross Counter, Marmelo and Prince of Arran (all trained in England) filling the first three positions, while Finche, also trained in Great Britain, was fourth and Rostropovich (Irish) placed fifth.
The highest-placed Australian was the Waller-trained Youngstar, which climbed into sixth.
Pre-race favourites Magic Circle (16th), Avilius (22nd) and Best Solution (8th) failed to make an impression.
