I box six horses in a $50 flexi trifecta. I have won the Melbourne Cup (2007) & last Saturday’s Mackinnon trifectas this way. It pays 41.66 per cent of the trifecta back – so it can be thrilling but not hugely profitable (when Efficient won, paying $6 from memory) or faint-inducing (Saturday).
I have also put my hard earned readies on the following Cup winners:
1986: At Talaq
1993: Vintage Crop
2002: Media Puzzle
2003: Makybe Diva
(if you’re wondering about the 1980s horses, OK, it was my Dad’s cash. I still picked the horses).
Here are my sezzy six nags for race seven, Flemington (no order)
No. 8 Americain
No. 6 Mr Medici
No. 12 Harris Tweed
No. 3 So You Think
No 11. Descarado
No. 24 Maluckyday
I’m probably going to have a few other bets, but that’s another thing altogether.
