Melbourne Cup picks

It’s Melbourne Cup day.

My picks, based on total ignorance of form are:

1:  (because I know the owners):

Who Shot Thebarman (NZ) (18)


2: (because the jockey is in blue):


Best Solution (IRE) (6)

3: (because the jockey is in Otago colours – blue and yellow).

Marmelo (GB) (10)

The field and form are here

    Never realised you were such an ardent and astute follower of the sport of Kings.
    That said I like your thinking, well almost, was there not a jocky in red and black might have been worth a lazy Hillary.

    I’ve herd it said, HP, that more Sweepstakes are won by the “Ignorant” than “those in the ‘know'”
