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.

At least that way you can guarantee a result
