, Well, the Emirates Melbourne Cup has lived up to its reputation of being the toughest day for us to leave in the Lavazza celebrity tipping challenge but we still did finish ahead. Here is the wrap of the day, Lynette got us off to a placing in race 3. Then, Molly meld rum found us a winner with a nice return in race 5 but then John and myself went hard in the Melbourne Cup with absolutely no luck. So $ absolutely no luck. So $425 is what we finished with ahead today. We add that to our total from Saturday, we are edging towards $7,000 in the kitty after two race days and the great news is, Trent has some better news in terms of cash. Over the last two days, we have done over 2,000 coffees. So that should be another $ be another $4,000 to $ be another $4,000 to $5,000 in the kitty for Vision Australia. The money is building and building. We are coming back on Oaks Day. You are going to give us another $ are going to give us another $1250 days. Here is the Lavazza way, enjoy your coffee and party. Let's get into it. The gorgeous Rose Byrne, it's lovely to have you back home in Australia. Welcome home? Thank you.Have you had a chance to catch up with friends or family? Yes, I was Yes, I was with my family in Sydney and they are here with me today, my dad and sister. What do they think of the Cup? It's a tradition in my family. My father is a punter. Every year he has placed a bet on the Cup for us. So, it's really great to be here. So, - just particularly with him. We were on Red Cadeaux and nice.You just wrapped filming with ' the Turning" just wrapped filming with ' the Turning". You are killing it overseas. How was it coming back to Australia to film? Wonderful. It was a really special project. We were in Perth shooting. It's based on a Tim Winton story. So it was really special. Great. Enjoy your day and good luck on the horse. Thank you, thank you so much. So, the visitors book here for their Royal Highnesss to with Michael Wright. There haven't been that many Chairman of the Victoria Racing Club so it's a position of great honour. Chairman of the Victoria Racing Club
so it's a position of great honour. Top. A big day, 14th time that his Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. Has come to Australia. He did a stint at Timbertop which is part of Geelong Grammar, for the Duchess of Cornwall for the first time, what a great reaction they received from everybody here at Flemington. So, all good. All good. He took his own pen or did he... He took his own pen or did he.... I am not sure, Simon. I am sure that if it wasn't his, it would be OK. I am just having a look at the sectional times for the Melbourne Cup. It on does look like they have Cup. It on does look like they have been reasonably steadily for the 1000 metre mark and taken a dash from home from there. That has made it hard for horses that got back. The last five furlongs they did in just under. The last 100 was 28. The last 100 was The last 100 was 58.73. Who finished the best? Who were the two horses that finished the best? Jakkalberry and Mount Athos. In a nutshell for a Melbourne Cup distance, it was a sit and sprint. We didn't get the true pace and we spoke about the lack of speed heading into the race on a number of horses to be ridden differently. Mourayan tracked the stable mate, Green Moon in and he was able to switch off and go bang like he has done in the mile and a quarter races. To Lloyd Williams and the team, congratulations for tuning that horse the way you have today. You shouldn't forget that Ollie was going to ride Green Moon in the Cox Plate. Just, Plate. Just,... He is trying to wake his horse up a little bit. With The spurs on the boots. He is giving him a bit of a nudge in the ribs to sharpen him up a minute. Full credit to Tommy. He led that field on Glencadam Gold, I would say he has he has ridden a great front runners race.He has taken them stead race.He has taken them steadily through the first 2 through the first 2000 metres of the race. A a terrific ride. Paddy, it looks a pretty good betting race. We were thinking down the bottom. thinking down the bottom.? Guilt edged Glenn hasn't wiped the smile off his face all afternoon. Unpretentious has been heavily backed. Just out 10 cents, 3. backed. Just out 10 cents, 3.70 but will be a pronounced favour. Al, now back into 8. The Too Many Reds, so just out a paint, but your favourite, will be the 23, on screen there, $ there, $4 to $ there, $4 to $4. there, $4 to $4.20 now back into $ there, $4 to $4.20 now back into $3. there, $4 to $4.20 now back into $3.70. Unpretentious. Just on the tote money, there were four jockeys that have ridden in the Melbourne Cup. James McDonald on Fiorente both rode for Gai and rode extremely good races. You saw - they just missed but the effort was good. You saw - they just missed but the
effort was good. They were very very good rides. No doubt about it. Glen Boss in the top four again, he has been in the top five, he has had 12 rides and he has been in the top 5, on nine occasions. 5, on nine occasions.. He has fantastic timing in that race. Him and Ollie have probably got the best strike rates in the 3200 Melbourne Cup. Here we are the dash for cash, the famous straight six. And it's a full field. Not too many times has bruised mentioned the favourite, number 23... Do favourite, number 23... Do you think there is any advantage to being drawn on one side or the other.
Particularly. What you will notice is most of these horses will come down the centre of the track. They used to also split. Now they seem to want to bunch in the middle of the track. Let's go to Greg Miles and his call for the MSS Security Sprint. RACECALLER: for the MSS Security Sprint.
RACECALLER: RACECALLER: . Sea Lord who has a middle stall goes in. And gate 17. Ready to G they are off and racing. Unpretentious just jumped reasonable. Danzylum got away well and Excellantes and Altar, so, it's settling into stride now, Altar, in settling into stride now, Altar, front of Excellantes and Pitt, and Sea Lord not far away. In behind those is Bigelow, a wide Hot Snitzel is up there with Too Many Reds and Famous Seamus is showing speed. Wider is the The Eighth Maker. Unpretentious is in behind the The Eighth Maker. Green Birdie is up the middle of the track. As they come down towards the course proper at the 500. Excellantes and Al, Sea Lord starting to extent, Bigelow is running on. Hot Snitzel up the middle. Unpretentious has a lot of work do, nearing the 200, and Altar, Excellantes hits the lead down on the inside. Hot Snitzel and now, Unpretentious right up the middle of the course here here he comes. Getting up to tackle Excellantes and Altar, a Petman wins Altar, a Petman Altar, a Altar, Getting up to tackle Excellantes and Altar Unpretentious wins. Behind those Bigelow and Liveandletdie, Rockpecker, behind those what Green Birdie, followed Birdie, followed Famous Seamus and dalz dalds. A fair way back is Cascabel. Followed by Adamon, that's a big one. Greenhouse gas, hear, hear, Craig Williams, he knew he was on the best horse in the race. There was a moment where he may have changed side. This is impressive. He sat back, Craig Williams knows this horse so well. Nick has kept him fresh. She really had these race ear marked. He was lucky to get in on the weights. Gained a run. He was third emergency. He gets to the front and Zvonareva, to Nicole Burke, my sister in lost, beautiful sister of my wife, Sally who is part owner in this horse, this is a magical moment in magical moment in support for you, darling, congratulations, you have been under so much pressure to get this horse right and to win a big race. Took him to Sydney, he has had so much bad luck. But today, you have stamped yourself as a fantastic horse woman with a great future. Congratulations. Johnny Letts. Craig Williams, outstanding ride. Congratulations. Johnny Letts. Craig
Williams, outstanding ride. I think that is an outstanding horse, isn't he? Certainly, when even when I first rode him up the Sale. They have all let her train him where he wants to be. He went to Ballarat. She gave him one barrier trial. She knew She had more. She rang he up last night, I said Nikki your plan has been I said Nikki your plan has perfect with perfect with the horse. He is here today. perfect with the horse. He is here
today. Just shows you, Nikki Burke has done a great job and TLC goes a long way with these horses. You give them a long start and the punters would have been worried but when you wound him up, you pressed the button, it was all over in the matter of a few matter of a few strides. I think it's very important where he was, the straight six down here is quite a real risky race where the toughest horses wins so we just felt from the bar yaw draw, to have cover, I fouled Joh for as long as possible, pressed the button. He got a bit lost when he got to the front. Very dominant. Congratulations to Nikki Burke, Congratulations, it has been a long day for you to get you here but Thursday and Saturday are on again. It's a privilege to be here, competing in this stage. We have seen some great racing and I was lucky enough to get to see a Melbourne Cup winning jockey. Well done to Craig Williams. Nikki, he is smart. I am just so proud of him and so glad to see everybody could see what he could actually do today. It on did look as though he got a fair way off the lead. He was travelling at the time? I thought he came off the bridle a little earlier than what I was hoping. I thought he would travel a bit further. When he got to the clock tour, you knew he was home, so really thanks to Craig and my owners, for being very patient and sticking with the plan that what I had made at the start of the prep and also, it has all panned out and it's great. I think you've got a lot to look forward to, you are keeping your brother-in-law law happy in the stud sco? I hope he tipped him to win. He did. Thank you very much. Terrific Nikki. You could have gone in Fashions on the Field. Dressed by Sally marshal. Well done.

We analyse the MMS security. There is our winner in the lime green colours. Right on the outside. He is starting to pick up the main bunch. Altar had got collared by Excellantes. Simon. He just opens right here. You see him float a little bit when he gets to the front, in correspondent of the clock tower, just when you see him hop and skip and say OK, I am on my right leg, look at him pin those ears back for a big boy. He is lightly raced. He is just learning his trade right now, this is jobbingy, this is Francesca, Green Birdie, this will be Brett Prebble. I think the winner is over his right shoulder. We will see him coming up there. The leaders - the pace was on on the left-hand side on the inside rail. So Unpretentious did really well to make up ground on the outside. You've got Bigelow just skipping through there in the lime colours, Green Birdie tries to follow. But you mentioned on the right-hand side, we are just getting inside to the clock tower now and Unpretentious is probably a little bit too far on your right of screen. Look at the wall of horses. He is about five or six lengths of him. He burns some fuel. Have a look at all of the horses there, this is amazing stuff. Michael Christian, Willie Davis was the man who got really excited.
