Mathew Cahill missed out on the Forbes Cup by half a length aboard Zarlu on Monday, who was chasing back-to-back Forbes Cup wins for trainer Peter Morgan.

Cahill had Zarlu flying down the home straight but was kept at bay by Gentleman Max and jockey Allan Chau.

Cahill had earlier won with the Forbes-based, Dennis Bush-trained Molasses in the day’s Class 2 Handicap (1100m).
