The 2013 Melbourne Cup - a Futurist Decides

Monday 4 November 2013

Now before any of you rush out and stick your hard earned on anything I say here, please note that a) I'm answering this because I get asked every year and b) My track record is appalling. Still I've put a bit of thought into a near term prediction to see who you might like to back come cup time tomorrow - take it with a fine grain of salt!

If you're a night owl, you have a couple of aligned horses to go with: Sea Moon & Green Moon. I like the sea best;

If you're into geography, you have Fawkner; Ethiopia; & Seville for a Trifecta. If you're into broken hearts it's hard to go past 'Dear Demi' - Ashton would be pleased

Brown Panther gets my 'Sir Attenborough' place bet and in the end Fiorente looks a good thing. For me though I have to back the name sake in Foreteller with Sea Moon, Fiorente and Ethiopia in my box Trifecta. Of course the safest bet tomorrow is the one you don't have! At least that way you can guarantee a result
