Congratulations to Rekindling, the low weight helped him to get across the line at the end, not to take anything away from Corey Brown’s ride. A really deserving winner and another exciting finish to Australia’s richest horse race. It’s interesting that the first four each came from inside barriers, Rekindling (4), Johannes Vermeer (3), Max Dynamite (2) and Big Duke (5). This year the first four paid a little over $50,000, twice more than last year. Now that would have been a nice collect!

So the Melbourne Cup has been and gone for another year. Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get my tips or an odds comparison table on the website. No matter, there’s always next time. I hope you had a good time and enjoyed a win and a cold drink or two on the day.

Cheers,
