First round of betting plus barrier draws for the Melb Cup.

Rekindling is looking sweet - great barrier and NO ONE over here in Oz is talking about the horse :-)

Well the punters have now plunged Rekindling to win the Cup - from 16 into around 10-1.

Red Cardinal really does look the best horse in the race but barrier 24 is a shocker!

So at the moment I will box up - Marmelo, Johannes Vermeer, Max Dynamite, Ventura Storm, Wall of Fire, Rekindling and Amelie's Star to run first and second.

A pro punting syndicate tried to back Humidor to win $1million but the bet was rejected and knocked back to $250k.

No bet in the race but my selection would be Max Dynamite E.W.

On Rekindling ante-post, obviously needs it share of luck in running, but hopefully can go close

Rekindling for me Paul.

Also interesting to point out that the only Euro horse to win the Cup without a lead up start in Australia was Vintage Crop. So using that guide I think Max Dynamite is a genuine chance.

I think that this years raiders are stronger than last year and I wouldn't be surprised if they fill the first five places.

Of the Aussie hopes I think Ventura Storm trained by David Hayes is the best hope. The Hayes dynasty has a strong history of having multiple starters in a race (two in the Cup) and the roughie of the two gets up.

I will put a saver bet on Red Cardinal - I think it's the best stayer in the race and a proven big race traveller but drawn in barrier 24 is a killer! Being drawn so wide - if the horse does win the jockey will weigh in over weight because for the first part of the race he will be able to order a cup of hot chips and a can of coke and be able to consume it all before passing the winning post the first time :-)

Here goes...

13 / Big Duke - Perfect campaign leading up to this. You can't go wrong most times with Darren Weir at the long distances

4 / Tiberian - Came back this year with Peslier aboard first time and he shows much improved speed. I think the two get along very well. Suspect at the distance.

6 / Red Cardinal - Was very impressive winning the Belmont Inv. earlier this year here in the US. Not using his regular jockey or the jockey that won the Cup for the trainer a couple years ago makes me wonder if he is legit.

9 / Max Dynamite - Only two races prepping for this after a super long layoff scared me off him.

23 / Amelia's Star - Huge win in the Bart Cummings followed by a easy prep for this that looks awful on paper. A Weir charge

Thank you so much, gentlemen!

I backed the winner and third and I won the quinella as well. I should have gone the trifecta as well.

Thank you so much for your tip!
It quickly made sense that Rekindling was in the Cup right up to his ears.
Australia will now see many more classy European 3yos having a crack at the Cup - the Achilles heel has been exposed.

Doug.
