Melbourne Cup

I’ve come close to getting huge priced ones close in this few times, and the definite value here in at the big priced end of the market. I’ll start with Kingfisher, he was 2nd in the Gold Cup and to my mind has been prepared with this in mind of what looks a great mark. He still has bags of potential and 50/1 is a bit of an insult.

Trip to Paris’s run in the Caulfield Cup make the British runners odds look value so I also like the look of Quest for More he has been a very good stayer this year and although he was poor on his Aussie Debut I think that can be ignored and he looks sure to be better here at a huge price of 66/1.

Big Orange is another that interests me at a huge price. I don’t think he liked the softer ground last time out and he looks like one that could be suited by this race. 66/1 looks silly.

We were very close to a very decent payout here with Big Orange who finished in 5th. I went for the bigger price and 4 places. He ran a  super race and was gaining again at the end after looking in a bit of trouble. Quest for More also ran a great race as well in 8th and i couldn’t have been more excited as they were turning for home both travelling well in 1st and 3rd. We certainly got huge value at huge prices there i think both will be in contention again next year.
