Melbourne Cup winner Cross Counter has come through the race in top condition.
Trainer Charlie Appleby says Cross Counter has recovered well from his victory in the Melbourne Cup.
The northern hemisphere-bred three-year-old gave Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin operation its first Cup winner after three previous seconds.
“He ate up last night. His legs are clean. He’s had a little lead out there this morning with a pick of grass and he’s taken it well,” Appleby said.
