    MELBOURNE, Tuesday, - Unheralded Piping Lane sent the Tasmanian book makes reeling as he added a colourful chapter to Melbourne Cup history today.

    A six-year-old veteran of 47 starts he gave Tasmania its first Cup win since 1885 as he fairly outstayed the favoured Magnifique and Gunsynd in a truly run race.

    In Hobart last night bookmakers said they had suffered their worst losses in many years. They described Piping Lane's win as "disastrous," paying out thousand's to loyal punters who snapped up the 40-1. (See report below).
