Twilight Payment has won the 2020 Melbourne Cup.

The horse, trained by Irishman Joseph O’Brien, was too strong for the field leading from start to finish.

Twilight Payment was riden by Jye McNeil, who beat Tiger Moth and Prince Of Arran.

The race, which usually attracts a crowd of around 100,000, was held behind closed doors because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It was a debut Melbourne Cup win for McNeil and the seventh triumph for owner Lloyd Williams. First place was worth around $4m NZD.
