MELBOURNE CUP RESULT 2017
2017 Melbourne Cup Result
Youngest horse to win the race for decades. Last race was in the English St Leger at Doncaster where he finished 4th. A good effort and hats off to the trainer.
Irish galloper who capped off a good Aussie campaign with 3 placings from as many starts.
Old timer. I never thought he would be good enough at his age but ran a cracker.
One of my selections and ran a good race without troubling the winner and runnerup. Has a good 2 mile record.
The York Ebor Hcp winner. Ran a good race without thretening the winners.
An old horse who ran above his class.
Consistent horse but met his match. Better off against more modest company.
One of my selections at 40/1. Disappointing but better off against easier company
This was only his second start in Group one with the other being in the Caulfield Cup where he finished about 6th. Better off against lesser competition.
Old timer who was only making up the numbers.
16-Wall of FIre
18-US Army Ranger
