  4. Very unfortunate that Cliffsofmoher broke down but a great run by Cross Counter. He was very strong at the end of 2 miles with his light weight

  5. Pretty good spring carnival for Godolphin`s UK based trainers. They've taken out 2 of Australia`s 3 biggest races and finished 2nd in the other. They've also won 2 other Gr1 races and I wouldn't be surprised if they add the Mackinnon Stakes on Saturday as well. I`ve been saying it for years but UK trainers should be sending out more of their Gr2 and Gr3 horses to plunder the easy pickings on offer Down Under.

  8. every time when a horse broke down in melb cup , I had money on it. This time I did not put money on Cliff , but Avilius , which I heavily back, got involved …. perhaps I should stop betting on melb cup altogether .
    RIP cliffsofmoher

  9. 137 horses died on Australian tracks between July 2016 and July 2017. It would be great if weights were capped at a lower level to reduce the risk of broken bones to horses. But, few jockeys can ride at 51kg. There is no simple answer to prevent bone injuries in races.

  10. The handicapping system in Australia is ridiculous.
    Last time runaway and finche met there was an 11lbs difference and today there’s only 4 lbs… where they’ve lost 7lbs from I don’t know.

    If cross counter didn’t win something was wrong.
    Judging on all the UK horses here’s there ratings previous to travelling to Australia and the weights they were carrying in the race.

    Cross counter – R114 /w 8-0
    Muntahaa – R115/ w-8-10
    Magic circle R117/ w8-11
    Best solution R118/ w9-1
    Cliffsofmoher R116/ w8-13
    Marmelo R113/ w8-9
    Prince of arran R111/ w8-5
    Rostropovich R113/ 8-0
    Nakeeta R105/ w8-5

    It was clear to see , marmello has ran the best having to give away 9lbs to cross counter!

  12. First time the winner had ever race beyond 12f/2400m, and I thought Rostropovich for Aidan O'Brien ran a very creditable race under the same circumstances, his first ever career start beyond 12f/2400m.

  13. Bwahahahahaha Winxtards, tell us once again about how much better Aussie
    horses are than European horses. ROFL!!!! PS. The Euro horses in this
    race are real 2nd raters back in Europe – you have heard of that place,
    right? You know the one…..where the REAL horses race and not the flat
    track bullies who win 30 races on the bounce but have NEVER beaten a
    horse rated higher than 122. :O)))))))))))))

  16. I honestly don't know why Australians would be interested in the Melbourne Cup.
    There's almost nothing Australian about it.
    Most people would never have heard of 3/4 of the horses.

  17. Was the horse insured?? You betcha! Nice pay back from that. What Will happen to the horses flesh now, Mmmm Some tasty Horse steak sold at TOP DOLLAR! More money. Sic, Sic, Sic, The work of DEMONS and EVIL. All at the expense of Innocent Animals JUST to make money. Anyone hear or notice the owners shedding a TEAR! Nope! Why? because they DON'T give a DAMN! All the horse is an Expendable asset. But don't worry. BURNING HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU POS, SCUM!!!!

  18. GREED, EVIL, SELFISHNESS, and MONEY. All at the EXPENSE of Innocent Animals. Funny how a HORSE NEVER suffers ANY of these injuries running in the WILD on rocky terrain, slopes, hills, grasslands etc. You POS, SCUM, DEMON PEOPLE will PAY for your SINS and CRIMES against Inocent Animals in BURNING HELL!!
