Most members will already know that the G Network favourite for Melbourne Cup is Maybe Better,and looking at the odds today, shows some backing, currently $9.00 Fixed, opened at $13.00 after win in the SAAB Quality 2500m on Saturday. This 4 year old gelding has some real guts, and has shown consistently amazing performances with each increase in distance and class.
Coming off his recent win in the SAAB Quality on Victoria Derby day, with a nice time 2:35.86 for the 2500m on DEAD track, down 7kg today, looks the goods with a nice sustained run home. Some punters took the amazing $71.00 on offer last week (until Friday) with bookies or Futures Fixed odds, this runner was included here on Victoria Derby day under: Other runners to watch.
There are a few good chances to feature today in the race that stops the nation. Zipping and Tawqeet are pretty amazing horses and could easily show. Efficient is a phenomenal 3 year old that could re-write the record books SCRATCHED.
Look for a bold showing from Mandela with jockey Craig Williams on fire at the moment. The old runner and huge longshot Mahtoum may find form today in its first chance at right conditions.
