The Cliffsofmoher suffered a fractured right shoulder and had to be euthanised.

The stewards' report listed Marmelo, as well as Aidan O'Brien's Yucatan (11th), as mildly lame after the race, while fellow Werribee resident Magic Circle (16th) displayed signs of an exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage post-race.

The Chairmen and Directors of the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) later extended their sympathies, with Flemington Racecourse tweeting their condolences, "To the Williams family and the connections of The CliffsofMoher, which was euthanised after he went amiss in the Melbourne Cup".

It comes after an unusually high attrition rate of European horses at Werribee this year.

Moore was uninjured in the incident. I always thought he was the horse to worry about.

English trainer Charlie Fellowes, who prepared third-placegetter A Prince Of Arran, said on Wednesday: "It can't be ignored that there has been a lot of injuries to European horses in the build-up, more than usual".

"This is a race we have been trying to win for years and I'm just fortunate to turn up with the right horse".
