While we love watching the Melbourne cup we much prefer the actual cup atmosphere and sure enough this one didn’t let us down. It had the full sweep of prerequisites to make this Melbourne cup the one to remember. While some cups disappoint with the outcome this one showed some amazing racing. With first and second just seconds apart.
The cup had lovely ladies , amazingly excited punters and some great racing and the big race did not disappoint. Neither of the favorites come in with Hartnell coming third hope you didn’t back it on the nose.
