The 2020 Melbourne Cup has been won and run at Flemington, with Twilight Payment leading all the way to take home the famous race.

Tiger Moth came in second, Prince Of Arran finished in the places for the third year in a row, running third, while The Chosen One came fourth.

Avilius was the final horse to finish the race, but there were two who didn’t pass the post at all. King Of Leogrance was a raceday scratching, and unfortunately the race was marred with tragedy as Anthony Van Dyck pulled up lame with 400m metres to go and had to be euthanised.

Here is the complete finishing order for the 2020 Melbourne Cup.
