You’re a better man than me, Gungha Din, if you can confidently pick the Cup winner. Nevertheless, the streets are awash with once-a-year punters ready to share their equine expertise.
For what it’s worth (not much, although we once tipped the Cox Plate trifecta, in order), the Slatts’ stable leans toward:
Sea Moon, the best of Lloyd Williams’ entries and he’s a Cup specialist;
Ibicenco, Geelong Cup winner, always a favourable indicator and his price is generous;
Dear Demi, flew home in the Caulfield Cup and stamped with class. Wonder if its owner, Singo, will shout Flemington if it gets up;
and Fiorenta, Gai’s best chance of a Cup winner and who doesn’t like to see a true eccentric succeed?
