The 2020 Melbourne Cup was won by Twilight Payment. Here you can find the full finishing order for every horse, along with each of the runners’ information.

Just 24 horses finished the 2020 Cup, after King Of Leogrance was scratched early on raceday and Anthony Van Dyck pulled up during the race, collapsing with around 400m to run. The Irish galloper was euthanised after suffering a broken fetlock.
