Jockey Kerrin McEvoy riding Cross Counter wins race 7 the Lexus Melbourne Cup during Melbourne Cup Day at Flemington Racecourse on November 6, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

On a rain-affected track and ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Charlie Appleby, Cross Counter defeated Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran in an all-northern hemisphere finish.

"I was back a bit further than what I wanted", McEvoy said.

He timed his charge to perfection, taking the lead in the final strides for a third Melbourne Cup victory, with his family set to benefit from his slice of the prize money estimated at $200,000 (£110,000).

Cross Counter was the final victor of the Melbourne Cup after a nail-biting final, taking the lead in the very last seconds of the home stretch.

"We were lucky to get through, said McEvoy, who won the Melbourne Cup for the third time".

Cross Counter went on to end two decades of Melbourne Cup frustration for the powerful global stable Godolphin by winning Australia's greatest horse race.

"I had to go my own way and we were full of running".

The Aidan O'Brien-trained runner broke down just after crossing the post the first time - just 1000m after the start.

Before the race, The Cliffsofmoher was "sweating up", which can sometimes be an indication a horse is in distress.

One of sport's greatest hoodoos is no more and the billion-dollar Sheikh, whose earliest memory was galloping through the desert on a white stallion with his father, can finally say he is a Melbourne Cup victor.

"I know how much this race means to him - he's been trying to win if for a while and so I am so happy this horse has been able to do it for him".

Appleby said the Melbourne Cup had been on his "bucket list for a long time". He's the one who's encouraged us to take the chances in what we do internationally.

Two of his three Cup wins have come since that move.
