The 2020 Melbourne Cup was run at Flemington Racecourse on November 3 with Twilight Payment winning the $7 million showpiece.

Staged without crowds and in front of empty grandstands, the lack of racegoers didn't detract from a memorable edition of the race that stops a nation.

Twilight Payment, sent off at odds of $27, led throughout the 3200m trip under a fine ride from Jye McNeil, holding off Tiger Moth in the finish.



It was a seventh win in the race for owner Lloyd Williams and a second for trainer Joseph O'Brien, who also won with Rekindling in 2017.

Tiger Moth, trained by Joseph's father Aidan, was runner-up after a dream passage throughout the race, while Charlie Fellows' Prince Of Arran was third as he finished in the places for the third year running.
