Melbourne Cup 2013

Post by A Mum on Mon Nov 04, 2013 8:41 am

So who is going to win this years Melbourne Cup?

I love cup day - The only day of the year where I actually sit and look at the form guide and pick out winners in each race (yeah well that's the aim..lol) and watch them on Channel 7.

The thing I love the most though is the roar of the crowd when they open the gates for the big race.

Anyway - back to the question at hand - who will you be having in the Melbourne Cup this year?
Any rumours or tips out there?
Help me get a winner

I've done 5 of the races so far Mum, will do the rest tonight.

I keep looking at Fiorente, Fawkner, Saville and Dunaden in the big one with about 6 others....lol.

I'll post my bets for the card tomorrow.

Yeah I am not good at picking the actual Melbourne Cup winner either !!
But I did get a $200 quinella in one of the other races on the day 2 years ago.
That was pretty cool Very Happy Very Happy

Awesome ! Very Happy
I will post my selections in the morning for the day too.
 
I always pick them out and put them on, on the Monday night.
As I don't want to get caught in the mad rush on the Tuesday.
 
A Dad leaves it till the last minute - well I should say used to - as 2 years ago he missed out completely as I had put money into a Sportsbet account for him and it crashed on everyone! Evil or Very Mad   Well I suppose at least he came out square...lol Laughing 
 
I wish it was a public holiday - rather have one for Melbourne Cup than Adelaide Cup that's for sure.
 
One of my favourite days of the year - Almost up there with AFL Grand Final day.

R+B
Be careful you well get caught Redandblack Handed !
Can you remember Bill Collins calling "'Dead heat dead heat in the Cup."

I must confess I dont study the form for the Melbourne Cup
Too many overseas horses in the race these days and too hard to evaluate form
The best I can do is post my selections at Globe Derby Park today , so we can build up a bank for Tuesday !

R1...4-7-1-8
R2...1-10-9-7
R3...3-4-8-6
R4...1-2-4-9
R5...1-7-8-5
R6...6-1-8-2
R7...1-7-8-10
R8...1-2-5-4

ok i'm not having a bet as such but a mate of mine (a professional punter) who lives in Melbourne was in Adelaide in September & i lent him my car & i refused to take any money off him for the use of the car so he ended up posting me some Caulfield Cup-Melbourne Cup doubles, well Fawkner arrived at Caulfield & i have these horses running

Fiorente $1020.00

Masked Marvel $1615.00

Dunaden $2635.00

Mourayan $8670.00 (he thinks this is the best 100/1 pop he's seen in a long time but did add they'll have to change its gear)

Ethiopia $12,835.00

i'm happy to collect but if Eithiopia is fighting it out with Fiorente i'll be barracking for Ethiopia

Scrappy, I certainly remember Bill Collins calling it a deadheat.

Fair enough, too.

Light Fingers was one of my favourite horses.

Also Storm Queen (won the Slipper) and

Manihi, freak sprinter, won the Newmarket.

Finally, the great Tobin Bronze.

All SA horses.

While we're reminiscing, remember the great steeplechaser, Koorashali???
