The Anthony & Sam Freedman-trained Caulfield Cup winner Without A Fight was given a perfectly-timed ride by Mark Zahra, who opted to come off last year’s champ Gold Trip, to become the 12th horse in history to complete the Spring Cups double.
Zahra made up ground from the back hitting the front on the eventual 2023 Melbourne Cup winner the closing stages as Without a Fight charged strongly down the middle before drawing clear for an impressive two length victory over the Chris Waller-trained Soulcombe who missed the kick by three lengths.
Waller also prepared the third place-getter Sheraz who ran out of his skin as a triple-figure roughie to complete the Melbourne Cup trifecta.

Past Melbourne Cup Results
View a complete list of Past Melbourne Cup Winners by following the link to our dedicated page of champion stayers.
Looking over past Melbourne Cup results can be useful for betting purposes, but you need to look deeper than just who finished first. The place finishers also matter as they may return in later years to have more success or to place again. Remember, a horse that you can rely on to finish near the front of the pack is a horse you want to have in your Melbourne Cup First Four box bet.
The trick to using past Melbourne Cup results to help your betting is to avoid just looking at the Cup results. While the Melbourne Cup is a standalone event that means an easy afternoon at work for many people, it is actually the peak of a long lead up period of racing. The winners and place-getters of a handful of lead up races have tended to finish well in the Cup, and knowledge of which races to watch can give you clues for your Melbourne Cup betting.
Melbourne Cup Winners
While you shouldn’t just focus on the winners when looking at past Melbourne Cup results to help your betting, Melbourne Cup winners are certainly worth watching in the future.
Melbourne Cup winners don’t just top the Melbourne Cup results – they go on to perform well in other major races as well. While not every champion has continued to have a successful career after their Cup win, it is usual that a gelding or mare will continue to race for some time. A full male horse is less likely to continue, however, as they can profitably be put to stud on the Melbourne Cup win alone.
Stay tuned for the Melbourne Cup 2023 Results on Tuesday November 7th, 2023!
