Craig Williams rides local stayer Vow And Declare to win the 2019 Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse.
Paid $10 for the win. 🏇

The quants at Mac Bank have crunched the numbers (according to AFR) and come up with a surprise - "Surprise Baby" - they reckon it could outdo the more fancied offshore rivals.

QUOTE
"Horses at the top of the model are Surprise Baby, Vow and Declare, Finche, Cross Counter, Mer De Glace and Constantinople," the quants told clients on Monday afternoon.


Their past performance hasn't been 100% accurate, so don't bet the house on it.

QUOTE
Macquarie's team has run the model since 2007 and quickly made a name for itself with some early wins. However, by the team's own admission, it has had some lean years since.


The five-year-old gelding was bred by Rich Hill Stud in Matamata, the same stud that produced 2015 Melbourne Cup winner Prince of Penzance. Surprise Baby was purchased for just $5500 on an online auction website by two Australians and will jump from barrier 20 at odds of $14 for rural Victorian trainer Paul Preusker.

Lloyd Williams reckons his horse Latrobe has a good chance - but then again most owners think/hope that about their horse. Lloyd has had a couple of winners in the past.

New Zealand horses have a good track record at the Melbourne Cup. Another New Zealand horse is The Chosen One - with a name like that, sounds like a winner biggrin.gif

I'm not a punter, know nothing about race horses, so don't take anything I say as advice. I did win a Melbourne Cup sweep once though - the selection of the winning horse was quite scientific. I took all the names out of the hat draw - threw them along the floor - the one that landed out front I put $2 on (big spender) and it won. Probably as good as any method biggrin.gif

Happy punting

Yes, this. Some of my family are involved in the racing industry and they say that the Melbourne Cup is about the hardest race to pick as pretty much every horse in it, and its a big field, have been primed for this one race and pretty much every trainer and jockey are striving to win. None are there for a training gallop. So, pretty shirts or funny names or favourite numbers are the way to go apparently (fairly much how I pick my share investments come to think of it...).

Pick a horse with a name you like the sound of or a jockey whose shirt colours and patterns you like and you will have as good a chance as anyone else.
