Melbourne Cup...a quality race

Recommended Posts

Probably right.Every year the Europeans seem to be sending better horses down .Plus the Ozi bred input is pretty low.

Us Kiwis keep firing a few in and I think we have pretty good chance of taking it home this year.

The topweight looks the goods but having said that he looks too obvious.Over the years we have had a few horses look amazing in the Caulfield Cup and flop in the MC.

Shows how keen O'Brien is by bringing down a Derby winner.

Of course the Stodges and Red Rums of this world will know a lot more about this than I.

Good punting today.

Must admit I've got AVD as part my top 3 but that nagging feeling he does look too obvious . The Bounding connection worries me in view of trip but he never looks to be stopping at 12 furlongs . 

I picked Verry Ellegant as last, not because I don't rate her but because she's that good . There are more big races in her , if she don't settle , ground too quick maybe,  no way is she being knocked around for 9th or 10th like some of the others may be if chance gone . She just going to cruise home once a place chance gone , if it's gone .IMHO  only have to look at how Danon Premium ran in Tenno Sho on Sunday to see VE is world class , the Autumn racing will suit her again .
