Outsider Green Moon has won the 2012 Melbourne Cup, ahead of the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fiorente and the Ireland-bred Jakkalberry.

The Australian-trained horse, ridden by jockey Brett Prebble, held off a host of overseas entrants to win the $6.2 million race at Flemington.

"It was never going to get beaten," Prebble said.

"At 1200m I knew nothing was going to go with him. I pressed him a bit soon but it's hard to wait when you've got so much power underneath you.

"This is the pinnacle of racing in Australia. It was a great feeling."

Green Moon had recently finished the Cox Plate in a disappointing seventh place despite starting that race as favourite.

The horse started the Melbourne Cup as a $20 outsider.
