Where every Cup runner finished

IT was the race that stopped the nation, but at the finish only one horse triumphed.

So where did every other runner finish?

The 2018 Melbourne Cup will be remembered not only for the event itself, but also the deluge Flemington copped in the hours leading up to the main race.

While some runners relished the heavy track, others floundered - and with them so too did the hopes of punters across the globe.

Whether you had a wager, had a runner in your office sweep or were just a casual observer, see where all 24 runners finished in the great race.
