Melbourne Cup Selections 2008

Melbourne Cup 2008Today’s Melbourne Cup Day race runners come in large field sizes, with 22 runners in the Melbourne Cup race itself. Big Trifectas will be common today, and a few random runners included in the selections could just be the mix.

Some overseas runners here are hard to assess, and the overall best strategy to use, is to look for value. The following selections have been picked based on their recent runs, breeding, and light weight, and can be bet as a G Network racing selection, or included in your multiples.

  1. VIEWED, the winner of the Melbourne Cup, was tipped as a chance in the Caulfield Cup. The run didn’t quite come that day. Blake Shinn the jockey who rode Viewed to a Melbourne Cup victory, said of the ride: Viewed finally had a chance to find rhythm.
