Robert Hickmott's Almandin was a fine winner of the 2016 Melbourne Cup at 10/1 as the Australian raider fought off a brave battle from the Tony Martin-trained Heartbreak City, who got within a neck of the winner, while race favourite Hartnell finished in third place in a memoral renewal of the Flemington showpiece.
