It’s Melbourne Cup time, & as every commentator & columnist has been saying for days (Francesca Cumani on cue as I type), it’s the strongest field in living memory.
I boxed four horses in a flex trifecta this year:
No.5 Brown Panther
I will put a few dollars on each horse as well – the odds are too good.
I’m due a win, having 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).
