9 November 2018 11:08 AM City win ugly, bounce back from Sydney humiliation

Frenchman Florin Berenguer had his most productive game for City so far, but still has room for improvement, while Lachie Wales and McGree showed why Joyce has given those two youngsters so much responsibility.

But Marmelo's trainer Hugh Morrison was happy with his horse's effort after English-based gallopers ran first, second and third despite never having won the Cup before.

If they are good enough they will get their 11

It's the chance to be part of history and more than that, to dream; any horse that can win a Victoria Derby can stay a trip and can act around Flemington, so it's fair to say that a tilt at the following 13

Kamsoba, now 22, is part of a generation of African-born players who are transforming the face of Australian football.
