    Yeah i'd like to know too???

    In my work sweep I have spin around!!! Think I might get the lucky last $ on this one!! LOL :)

    Think viewed, C'est La Guerre, Alcopop will do well & my stab will prop be Crime Scene.. Other then that i'm no help..

    Hope everyone involved does well and all the horses stay safe! :))

    Anything that is trained by the Bart 'the Cups King' Cummings is worth backing IMO :))

    Well I'm really hoping Dom does well on Alcopop.
    The kid used to camp on my lounge when he'd come to Kal for rides in the early days of his apprenticeship.

    The man that owns my agistment center gave Dom his first ride.
    He's told me to put some money on him and Alcopop :)))

    It would be great for a local boy to win it!

    Sentimental bets - Im going to trifecta barts runners - the man is 81, what a swan song it would be :)

    Damiens horse, because, well...hes Damien. Could even throw a couple of bucks at Master OReilly for being a consistantly good horse denied chances by circumstances at times.

    Serious Bets - Viewed or Daffodil, dunno what else, its the cup, you may as well throw darts at flies and hope for a winner.

    Yeahhhh!! Cup Day again!. Get the light flashing and lets go!.

    Soo...socially...who's tipping what?

    I have picked Roman Emperor, Daffodil and Basaltico. Don't think I will lay bets though, I'm not much of a gambler :eek:

    I hate the Melbourne Cup - cos I get all excited and put about 20 bets on and then don't win any :p

    I am backing Alcopop as my number 1.

    And a trifecta of Alcopop, Roman Emperor, Viewed and Master O'reilly (I know thats 4, thats how indecisive I am)

    and I have about 5 Quinella's on various horses,

    and a mystery trifecta for good measure,

    and I walked out of the TAB and thought I should have backed Shocking too, which totally throws out all my bets and then I want to go back in and put tifectas in with Shocking etc etc etc

    I am glad I only bet this once a year :))
