2018 Melbourne Cup Results

  • 1st: #23 Cross Counter
  • 2nd: #9 Marmelo
  • 3rd: #17 Prince Of Arran
  • 4th: #13 Finche

The 2018 Melbourne Cup Results saw the Charlie Appleby-trained UK raider Cross Counter salute for the powerhouse Godolphin stable who celebrated their maiden win in the ‘race that stops a nation’ after three decades of trying.

Carrying just 51kg to victory, the Kerrin McEvoy-trained 2018 Melbourne Cup winner Cross Counter was able to beat home fellow international Marmelo (2nd).

The Melbourne Cup result in 2018 saw McEvoy win the famous two-mile handicap for a third time following his previous victories aboard 2006 (Almandin) and in 2000 (Brew).

It was an all-overseas affair in the 2018 Melbourne Cup trifecta with the Charlie Fellowes-trained Prince Of Arran running third.

Sadly, Irish colt The CliffsofMoher failed to finish the race and was euthanised after he suffered a fractured right shoulder.
