I'm just going to watch this year with a small flyer on Break Up who appears on the M/line at 12/1.  I believe the last race over Caulfield was a good prep for this.  It's a price play and a bow to the Japanese for giving it a shot.

I wish I had more time.  i reviewed the card quickly and there are a couple really nice races on it.

Haven't looked at it yet, I might find a pick, probably a new zealand or australian based/trained horse, but I don't even know who is running.

Kinda tired of handicapping horse races after the BC weekend anyway.  I'm sure some of you can relate to that---it was a long (chalky) weekend.

Jeez you start looking at the pedigrees and what the horses have done, some have run hurdles as well as flats, some even won at 16F, etc. 

These are the true great stayers of the world still racing at advanced ages, too.  Having raced in 4-5 different nations racecourses. 

Just looking thru them is kinda blowing my mind.  Kinda puts the BC Turf G1 into "perspective". 

This race is more like the Arc.    There are a couple Aga Khan breedings as well as homebred for Al Maktoum , etc.

Melbourne Cup R7.  I'll start with my bomber longshots to run ITM first:
More Felons, True Marvel, Future History

Onward soon,  to my top horses.  Most everyone I've talked to is picking like 5-7 horses.  I can't play that many, too expensive. So I"ll go looking now......

trying to figure out why they changed rider for Breakout, his previous rider is on the ground at Flem, in R8, on a livewire horse named Kimochi. Can only guess maybe they didn't like the ride that jock gave, because he's only got the 1 race on the card so he was available.
