UPDATE: 2009 MELBOURNE CUP FIELD

The Melbourne Cup field 2008 is very, very close to being finalised (final acceptances), and the field looks extremely strong. The Melbourne Cup is raced at Flemington, on the first Tuesday of November, is a race over over 3200m (2 miles). It is without doubt Australia’s biggest, and most widely recognised thoroughbred race; affectionately referred to by many as “The race that stops a nation”.

Now the 2008 Melbourne Cup has 10 overseas raiders vying for it, but as always, I’m prepared to overlook all the hype, and tip a local. And that local who I’m tipping to take out the Melbourne Cup of 2008 is ZIPPING. I love this consistent fella, and at $16 fixed odds (UNITAB) I bloody hope he does! I could bang on about all the formlines all day… but hey, I don’t really give a shit; my Melbourne Cup 2008 ‘hard-earned’ will be on Zipping, and I hope he gets the dough!
