Starts at Sixty Melbourne CupDo you pick by colour, number, or look for a good horse name?  Do you wait for a feeling, or listen too much to watch your friend says?  Perhaps you choose your horse by studying the form guide and looking at the statistics.  Or do you just rely on the media and bet on the favourite?  Most of us here have more experience than anyone on TV, so lets share our secrets today.

It’s the 161st Melbourne Cup today, and today we want to know how you “Pick a Winner”.  And while you are at it… tell us who you are betting on today, and what type of bet you are taking.
