Melbourne Cup best bets and horses

Best Bets – Tues Nov 7

Furphy Plate

Flemington Race 2 (1800m) 11:20 am

I’m rather keen on the toppie in this POUNDING. He’s going to appreciate the drop in grade from recent starts and he just looks perfectly placed from this draw. Should jump and push up into the top 3 from the get go. He is very fit and should finish best from FORGOT YOU who should appreciate the long straight here also.

Schweppervescence Plate

Flemington Race 4 (1000m) 12:40 pm

I just love a horse coming back in grade and I think BARBER is that here. In fact, I think he’s the bet of the entire day. At his best he has lengths on this field and if you can get $2.40 or better – get on and get a bank for the Cup.

Subzero Hcp

Flemington race 6 (1400m) 1:55 pm

Just get on. GLINT OF SILVER goes to the front from gate rise, Zac Purton controls the tempo and boots him away by the clock tower and he wins for fun. Quinella with LOVE TAP. But go in hard for this bloke.

Melbourne Cup

Flemington Race 7 (3200m) 3:00 pm

I do think the higher weighted horses have it this year. Gr 1 Caulfield Cup form to me is always a great test leading into this and so WITHOUT A FIGHT who won that Cup can get the chocolates in this. Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner GOLD TRIP is racing even better this year so you have to have him in your numbers. The Irish star VAUBAN they say is very tough and can stay all day so he’s my trifecta horse and for the first 4 – hmmm, BREAKUP or RIGHT YOU ARE. Fun race this year.

Big Dance

Randwick Race 5 (1600m) 2:20 pm

CEPHEUS. Not even going to add why other than the rails draw, leads all the way. Get on.
