Less than 24 hours after the Cup, she's enjoying her first day of retirement. Hello. Yeah! Go the Diva! Celebrations for the greatest mare in the country.

(All) Three for free! The jubilant owner, jockey and trainer re-living Makybe Diva's stunning hat-trick surrounded by fans wearing the now famous colours. There's not a horse that's done what she's done in the last say, 13 or 14 months.

There's not a horse in history that's done that. No-one, they revealed, was going to deprive her of this history.

Glen Boss says he felt it was written well before he partnered her to her third Melbourne Cup.

We feel like we're on this runaway train and I said it feels like it can't be stopped. It feels like destiny right now. And no matter how dazzled the nation is by the Diva, the connections are standing by the decision to retire her. Lee Freedman says it didn't come with sadness. No, not at all. I'm delighted that she's retired.

I think Tony and Chris are sick of pressure. You know, what more can she do? The win takes race earnings to more than $14.4 million and what she'll make at stud is expected to run much higher. We will never witness her run again because in the end, no-one wants to ask any more of her.

I think it's very fitting Tony has gone out and paid her the respect of retiring her today

because she needs to prove nothing from now on. Martine Griffiths, Ten News. And they're calling her better than Phar Lap, but just how good is Makybe Diva? Trying to help us answer that question is Brian Martin from Champions, the Australian Racing Museum. Good morning, Brian. Good morning. Now, as we all know, Lee Freedman wasn't holding back yesterday. He believes that Diva is the best. Is he right?

Yes, I think he is. In modern times we haven't seen anything to rival this great mare. She's being compared to Phar Lap who won the Melbourne Cup 75 years ago this year. It's very hard to try and bring those two different eras, those two champions together. I think they're probably better off left untouched. Let's enjoy the moment. She is the horse for the 21st century. I don't think in our lifetime we'll ever see one that can win the Melbourne Cup with the weight that she had to carry.

I think the most important thing to come out of yesterday was the fact she did it with ease. She joined in at the 300m mark and the race was all over and she's done it sort of similarly for three years in a row so she's the greatest that we've seen in modern times without a doubt. Certainly incredible. Now, has time, do you believe, made the legend of Phar Lap perhaps greater than he actually was? Um, I think over the period, you know,

the Phar Lap sort of folklore gets bigger and better with the telling. Phar Lap, because he went away from our shores after winning the Melbourne Cup, he went to America and took on the best that they could offer and they made it difficult for him to win there in Mexico he was pushed off the track the whole time and he died two days later and the myth around the story of how he died and all the intrigue has made him sort of an icon

and made him probably a greater icon as racing has gone down through the years. We can't really put them together

but we have that wonderful story about Phar Lap and in years to come the stories will be told about this great mare. We certainly won't forget her, will we? No, we won't forget her because she was a hero to a nation yesterday. And she brought people together all for the one reason. It was a great news story and everyone loves a champion.

We've had some wonderful sporting moments in Australia down through the years but this is probably one of the best ever. Thanks very much for your time this morning. Brian Martin from the Australian Racing Museum. Still to come in Ten News - Charles and Camilla hit the Big Apple. A moving service for those killed in the London suicide attacks. We stand united in our determination

to resist and overcome the evil of terrorism.

25 asylum seekers detained on Nauru for the past four years, have finally made it to Australia. The group of men was taken to a Melbourne hotel

after a chartered flight from the South pacific island. Originally from Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and Iraq, the men have been granted temporary protection visas, valid for at least three years. In the meantime they will be housed by family, friends and supporters. The Queen has joined religious leaders from many faiths in an emotional show of unity for London's bombing victims.

Survivors of the July 7 blasts prayed alongside those who lost family members. St Paul's Cathedral has, in its time, been a symbol of Britain's defiance and a place where those who have suffered loss have come to seek comfort.

Today it was all of those things as the Queen led the nation's remembrance for 52 victims of terrorism. We give thanks for their lives and we hold them in our prayers

and with them we remember the victims of terrorism

all over the world. The Archbishop of Canterbury spoke about terrorism and its dehumanising impact.

Part of the sickness of spirit we feel when confronted with terrorism is that we face people whose souls are damaged, almost destroyed.

Members of the emergency services, accompanied by some of the bereaved, brought candles from the four corners of the Cathedral. Each candle represented one of the locations where the suicide bombers struck.

Silence was kept and lost lives were remembered. We stand united in our determination to resist and overcome the evil of terrorism. Flames were kindled on a candle of hope. One flame lit by a member of each faith - Sikh, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew, Muslim and Christian, a symbol, the Cathedral said, of the shared commitment to stand against violence. Prince Charles and wife Camilla have arrived in the US

for a week-long visit.

So far, their tour has raised little interest among Americans. Charles and Camilla kicked off their week-long US visit with a tour of Ground Zero in New York

paying tribute to the lives lost in the 2001 attacks.

Both my wife and I were profoundly moved by what we saw. The couple received a royal welcome at their next engagement. CROWD CHEERS

Some Americans lined up for hours. Got on the Prince Charles schedule to see when he'd be here and we came in from New Jersey. They unveiled a park dedicated to the 67 Britons who died in the September 11 attacks then joined relatives for a memorial. Both our nations have been united by grief and supported by solidarity. On her first overseas trip with Charles, Camilla looked every bit the royal. The US media calls it "a glam offensive" suggesting Camilla is trying to win over a country once so besotted by Diana. Everybody says she's charming and lovely. It's hard to get over Diana but I guess we will. A local department store's tribute to the royals may better reflect the bemused reaction of Americans, a recent Gallup poll found

59% were not at all interested in the royal couple. I just find it all amusing. Train passengers, furious over years of late and cancelled services, have taken revenge in Argentina. They've set fire to at least five carriages and destroyed ticket machines.

Their anger exploded when they were told to get off a train after technical problems forced yet another cancellation.

Riot police were called in and fired rubber bullets before the crowd torched a police car. Passengers say they're sick of paying high prices for a service that has been hopeless for years. A tunnel emergency in South Korea as missile fuel caught alight on a truck. Surveillance cameras show how the propellant erupted, engulfing the vehicle, which had been part of a four-truck convoy.

The South Korean Air Force says there was no missile warhead explosion. The tunnel was quickly evacuated and nobody was hurt. The Reserve Bank interest rate decision is next in Ten's morning news. Plus in sport - Harry Kewell sets up Liverpool in a positive sign for the Socceroos' World Cup hopes.
