Melbourne Cup Picks 2009

Melbourne Cup time again, the race that stops the nation. Though G Network racing selections have been few the last year or so, I will post some Melbourne Cup Picks as is customary this season.

The favourites look quite strong this year in runners VIEWED (last year’s winner), ROMAN EMPEROR, and ALCOPOP all coming into this with some striking leadup runs. These runners must be respected here, and may be included in your multiples.

There are however, 3 other runners in the field, that look like excellent prospects, and will be this year’s G Network selections for the Melbourne Cup – all longshots, and all worthy of a bet. Recommended bet all 3, Win and Place.

Melbourne Cup selections:

Flemington Race 7 – 3.00PM AEST

7. ISTA KAREEM – Fixed Odds: $101.00W $26.00P
Bet: 1 unit Win, 5 units Place
This horse is used to the long distance, like a walk in the park. Flemington is not his best track, but dropping 6 kilos in weight on what he normally rides at, makes Ista Kareem a decent chance to be in the finish at long odds.

8. CRIME SCENE – Fixed Odds: $51.00W $13.50P
Bet: 1 unit Win, 5 units Place
In my opinion, best of the overseas horses, never run at Flemington, dropping 5 kilos will give this one a chance here.

19. CAPECOVER – Fixed Odds: $101.00W $26.00P
Bet: 1 unit Win, 5 units Place
Loves the Flemington track, has had some good runs in quality fields, and drops 7 kilos in weight on recent runs, Capecover is probably the best of the longshots to feature in this event.

Including one or more of these longshots in your multiples – Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta, or First 4 – could yield stellar payouts too!

Don’t miss out waiting in the queue to get your bets on…

    CRIME SCENE was the G Network Selection that produced a result today. Came out wide on the home turn and accelerated down the middle of track with SHOCKING (the winner), then proceeded to lead in the straight only to get run down (by 0.6 length) near the finish – came 2nd place.

    The original Fixed odds bet at $13.50 Place was discounted to $12.96 due to #23 being scratched. G Network Selections yielded a 64.80 unit return, for 18 unit outlay (on all 3 selections).
    Today’s G Network Selections Profit = +46.80 units.
