Favourite Rolled in First Race on 2020 Melbourne Cup Day

Overwhelming favourite Ingratiating started a short $1.85 favourite in the Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) on 2020 Melbourne Cup Day, but was turned over by $8 chance Finance Tycoon.

The son of Frosted appeared to have every possible chance to win when looming at the 200m mark, but was unable to reel in Finance Tycoon, a son of Written Tycoon.

It was the first of 10 races on the card at Flemington, with the feature event the 2020 Melbourne Cup (3200m) due to start at 3pm.
