I tip that I'll throw away another $20 in the office sweep and my horse will finish in the bottom 4, Hawks style

Will be following the trend of lightly raced Europeans on light weights to be successful, though Yucatan's form cannot be ignored.
Will also keep an eye on the Japanese horse if the track is as firm as Saturday.

I like the look of Cross Counter.

Magic Circle is worth a tipple and I always drop a lazy $10 on the nag, which seems to be Zacada. You never know, every so often those nags get up and the 100 to 1 long shot pays off.

For no other reason than I just love the name: 'Who Shot the Barman'

The horse who's conditioned to respond to violence the best will win.

Another Melbourne Cup over.
Another horse off to cop the shotgun because it was made to race when it clearly should not have been allowed to.
