So to say we have had a big week would be an understatement with a huge Melbourne Cup day and then Origin 1 in Adelaide. We attended both apparently! So you will hopefully forgive us if this edition of the newsletter of somewhat short, sharp and shiny…..
Not cause we are feeling seedy though. We just have a golf day Friday so are pumping this out Thursday night after Oaks Day. What a week!
And the King of Spring Punters Club Cup wrapped on Melbourne Cup day with 10 teams battling it out in the Grand Final that saw DY Dreaming putting up an ROI of 847% to take it out
The crew will be joining us on the legendary Punters Club Cup Caper next Autumn…. wow

BEST BETS – HORSES
The Melbourne Cup carnival wraps up this Saturday with the Mackinnon Stakes the feature and we will be on No. 9 Arcadia Queen. She had bad luck in Cox Plate run and still managed to finish strongly and this will sort of makeup for it. $3.20.
And we can’t call it our best bet or value bet, but R6, No.2 Nature Strip. One of the more frustrating units getting around and has cost punters plenty, but he did win this last year and his trial during the week was properly good. Get on him at $4.00.
