Giddy Up!

5 11 2013

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

No.6 Fiorente

No.12 Seville

No.19 Simenon

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

1987: Kensei

1992: Subzero

1993: Vintage Crop

2002: Media Puzzle

2003: Makybe Diva

2007: Efficient

2010: Americain

(if you’re wondering about the 1980s horses, OK, it was my Dad’s cash. I still picked the horses).

Happy punting

Move your bloomin’ arse!

My flexi trifecta is probably a bit dodgy this year, here are the six, no order:

No. 2: Jukebox Jury

No.6 Manighar

No.9 Lucas Cranach

No.12 Red Cadeaux

No.22 Tullamore

No.23 Niwot

Happy punting.

 

 





And they’re racing …

1 11 2010

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

1987: Kensei

1992: Subzero

1993: Vintage Crop

2002: Media Puzzle

2003: Makybe Diva

2007: Efficient

(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.
