The 2017 Melbourne Cup results will be known shortly after 2pm this afternoon and there is plenty of quality racing before we get to the feature race of the afternoon.

The first race of the day gets underway at 11am and we will be covering all the results as they roll in this afternoon.

The Melbourne Cup will be the seventh race of the afternoon at Flemington and we are set for one of the most open editions of ‘the race that stops a nation’ in recent memory.

Marmelo is currently available at 2017 Melbourne Cup odds of $7.50 and he is currently on top of the Melbourne Cup betting market with Ladbrokes, but there has also been plenty of support for last year’s winner Almandin ($9.50), Caulfield Cup placegetter Johannes Vermeer  ($10), Ladbrokes Cox Plate runner-up Humidor ($11), Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes runner-up Wall Of Fire ($12) and Northern Hemisphere three-year-old Rekindling ($14).

One of the best-backed roughies in the field has been Single Gaze and the popular mare has been backed from $41 into $34, while one of the big drifters has been Willie Mullins-trained Thomas Hobson who is now out to $20.

Boom Time may have won the Caulfield Cup, but he has still been relatively friendless in Melbourne Cup betting markets and he is priced at $31 to complete one of the most unlikely Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup doubles in recent memory.

Keep coming back to horseracing.com.au all afternoon as we update the results of the 2017 Melbourne Cup and make sure you get involved in the excitement with [ladbrokes]!

It was another Melbourne Cup dominated by Lloyd Williams as Rekindling recorded a narrow victory over Johannes Vermeer.

Johannes Vermeer kicked clear at the 300 metre mark and he looked as though he would run away with the Melbourne Cup, but Rekindling exploded from the pack at the 150 metre mark.

Rekindling kept on finding and he got in front of Johannes Vermeer in the shadows of the post to deliver owner Lloyd Williams a sixth Melbourne Cup winner.

Rekindling joins Just A Dash (1981), What A Nuisance (1985), Efficient (2007), Green Moon (2012) and Almandin (2015) as Lloyd Williams-owned winners of the Melbourne Cup.

“Aidan would be so excited – not just because he has run second, but his 23-year-old son has won the race,” Williams said.

“We got this horse as a yearling.

“David Watchman had him originally and when Joseph O’Brien got his licence we gave it to him.

“It is a dream and I am so thrilled.

“I can’t put it into words to be perfectly honest.

“I thought those horse had some chance because I thought his run in the Leger was good and I’ve been saying to people that the three-year-old form over there has been very good.”

Corey Brown gave Rekindling a peach of a ride in transit and time his run to perfection to claim his second Melbourne Cup win since he won the race for the first time with Shocking in 2009.

There have been some tough times for Brown since he returned to Australia from Singapore 18 months ago and he was clearly over the moon that all of his hard work had been worth it.

“I felt a little bit left out – I’d lost my spot because I’d been away too long,” Brown said.

“I’ve been slowly chipping away too get back to where I was and I am just starting to feel the love now.

“I’ve been getting plenty of opportunities in big races, but just the midweek races I’ve been struggling to get back to where I was.

“I had a great run.

“I had to get down to 51.5, but it is all worth it when you get wins like this.

“I was a fraction slow away, but after speaking to Joseph I didn’t want to rev him up and get him too keen.

“In transit he had the perfect run and he deserved to be the winner.”

Johannes Vermeer was incredibly gallant in defeat and continued his stellar run since arriving in Australia, while Max Dynamite was able to round out the placings in third place.

  • 1st – Rekindling
  • 2nd – Johannes Vermeer
  • 3rd – Max Dynamite
