Talking Horses: British curse in the Melbourne Cup is finally broken


A quarter of a century after the race fell to an Irish raider, Cross Counter has become the first winner to be trained in Britain

Congratulations to Charlie Appleby, who has become the first British-based trainer to win the Melbourne Cup, following the success this morning of his Cross Counter. It’s only taken us 25 years longer than Ireland to get the job done but, in fairness, it was accomplished with some style at around 4am our time, as Cross Counter led home Marmelo and A Prince Of Arran for a British 1-2-3, echoing the Irish 1-2-3 in last year’s race.
