GREAT Britain’s Cross Counter has won the 2018 Melbourne Cup horse race.

Ridden by Kerrin Mcevoy, Cross Counter finished the race ahead of Marmelo and A Prince of Arran.

Cross Counter came out of the pack in the last 200 metres after Runaway led for much of the race, and it was timed to perfection to win on the line ahead of Marmelo.
