Channel Ten has been criticized for choosing a replacement host from The Project over its ‘Princess of the Punt’ to cover the Melbourne Cup

Gorgi Coghlan will take over hosting duties, alongside Stephen Quartermain, for the big race at Flemington on Tuesday

Former Perth-based sports presenter Tim Gossage has spoken, wondering why the high-level post was not given to sports presenter Caty Price

Price, nicknamed ‘Princess of the Punt’, who has extensive racing experience and hosted network coverage prior to the main event, will take on a reporting role instead

«  How good is Caty Price,  » he tweeted on Monday night as he watched Price’s host the day before the Melbourne Cup

‘Know his stuff and let the expert do the talking why she doesn’t organize the race day coverage is baffling (She’s) refreshing and competent ‘

While some racing fans agreed with Gossage, others thought Coghlan was the right woman for the job

«  And her tips are more often on the money every time I heard her on the wireless,  » wrote another fan

The network, which paid $ 100 million for rights to the race from 2019 to 2023, has been plagued by technical issues

Bruce McAvaney, who hosts the cover of Channel 7, was badly missed during the run, and many have said Francesca Cumani, who jumped out of the ship for $ 250,000 a day, was the show’s saving grace

Ms Cumani had spoken of her decision to move, noting that she would have been devastated to miss the race that stops a nation

Last year marked the first time the network screened the race in 18 years, after the rights were lost to rival Seven

A team of international racing experts were invited to help cover the cover, including Francesca Cumani, trainer Peter Moody, group one winning jockey James Winks and interviewer on horseback Brittany Taylor
