It’s the first Tuesday in November – Melbourne Cup Day (and public holiday)!

Welcome to Flemington and the Melbourne Cup

My tipping form has been horrible this spring, so for the big race (The Melbourne Cup) I’m tipping four horses, from the 23 running, to give myself a better chance of success.

(Fingers crossed!)

My Melbourne Cup tips (Race 7 Flemington);

  • No. 2 –  Cavalryman – reasonable weight, good barrier draw, good history.
  • No. 4Red Cadeaux – poor finish in the last race, but good form prior
  • No. 12Who Shot The Barman – unlucky in the Caulfield Cup, god form prior (also my wife’s tip).
  • No. 24Signoff – flying under the radar, but form looks pretty good.

I took some photos for Vic Pics around Flemington yesterday – check out the blog post here – www.vic.pics/flemington-before-the-cup

UPDATE (Results):

Number 2, Cavalryman, was scratched , my other selections came 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively.
