Melbourne Cup LIVE: All the news from the race that holds up a nation


Legendary sports commentator Bruce McAvaney, 65, believes he will be relinquished after this Melbourne Cup and will do his best to go out with a blast.

A clip in which he danced on Saturday's derby day with model Rachael Finch and commentator Francesca Cumani showed he was in good shape despite his retirement age.

The trio danced alongside other presenters and talents to Daft Punk's One More Time – a well-chosen track for the occasion.

McAvaney made the trophy every morning with a cheeky call for Magic Circle.

& # 39; Hold on to your G-string, because we're at 200 at the door and Yucatan has put Avilius in the lead. Anyone who shot the Thebarman comes home heavily, "he said.

& Here is Magic Circle. Oh no, Yucatan, right in front of Avilius. Magic Circle opens. They come to the line. Oh, it's a photo finish. It's Magic Circle from a G-string.

His joke referred to the owner of Magic Circle, Marwan Koukash, who said on Saturday that he would get carried away to a G string and frolic around Flemington if his horse won.

His panel of David Koch, Sam Armytage and Francesca Cumani could not stop laughing.

Bruce will definitely be missed when he leaves.
