The TAB Trophy – the fifth race on the Flemington schedule for Melbourne Cup day – has been won by Ain’tnodeeldun, who finished ahead of Confrontational in second and Grinzinger Lord in third.
Aint’nodeeldun came into the race as the almost unbackable favourite – one of the shortest-priced favourites in any Flemington race today. After Ultimate Edition raced out to a huge early lead, the rest of the chasing pack caught up easily and surpassed in the home stretch. Confrontational pushed the favourite all the way, ultimately falling short by a head, while Grizinger Lord took out third in a photo finish.
