  1. Dunaden, Americain ,Gatewood and any horse with a low weight .As final field is unknown its a bit hard to pick the 4th horse .I wont be going just TV .
    Thats my Melb Cup choices


  2. Just saw Sammy Newman on the driving range. Can hit a ball. Beautiful swing saw everything go straight down the middle.


  3. Hopefully get to Stakes Day, always a good punting day.

    Just saw the fields for Saturday and they will provide plenty of chances to have a good win.


  4. Can’t believe Malabar Man drew 15, at least he has Williams up.

    20 EW at $81.

    Glass Harmonium a big shout in the McKinnon.


  5. Although it’s early, my picks at the moment for the Melbourne Cup are;
    1. Mount Athos
    2. Dunaden
    3. Galileo’s Choice


  6. I’m backing Ocean Park and Alcopop in the Derby and like Red Carduex, Gatewood and Dunaden in the Cup


  7. Deano’s tips for Derby day:

    R2 Fictional Account EW at $50
    R3 Tyanna at $7 EW (Remembering she is my long term Oaks tip at $41 from four weeks ago)
    R4 Shelford at $31 EW
    R5 Glass Harmonium at $14
    R6 Malabar Man at $21 (I have $20 EW at 81 prepost so go you good thing)
    R7 trifecta numbers 1,2/1,2,3,4,11/1,2,3,4,11
    R8 Tiger Tees straight out at $9 (best bet)
    R9 Wall Street EW at $26 (saver on Renewed Vitality EW at $31)

    Good luck all and get on Tyanna for the Oaks before her Wakeful run.

    Brigantin for the Cup if he gets in the field.

    R3- Dear Demi, load up!
    R4- Fire Thunderbolt, EW and boxed exacta with Snitzerland
    R5- Ocean Park & December Draw boxed exacta.
    R6- Honorius EW, Subiaso best roughie

    I would also take a double, Dear Demi into Fawkner based on current fixed odds you’ll get about $9, which represents great value!

    Good luck there is some great value out there tomorrow.

  11. Thanks for the Tips Motts, Deano and the rest! Please keep them coming!
    Don’t usually bet on the horses but decided to give Motts’ tips a dabble – had a couple of wins in the earlier races and thought fuck me Motts = Oracle from the Matrix and decided to get greedy and placed a multi-bet for races 6, 8, 9, 10 horses just to place and just missed out on race 10 with Aeronautical!
    Can’t wait to see all your tips for Oaks, Cheers!
