Melbourne Cup Horses You MUST Back

horse racing tips

The Wolf loves nothing more than steeling a march on his rivals by picking the eyes out of futures markets. Here are the five horses he says are worth a ticket for the 2016 Melbourne Cup.


  1. Curren Mirotic ($21)

    This Japanese galloper failed in the Takarazuka Kinen but he’s a very classy stayer with outstanding two mile form. Remember, Fame Game started $5F in last year’s Cup.

  2. Our Ivanhowe ($26)

    Has taken a while to acclimatise to Australia but showed in the Doomben Cup, he’s comfortable now. Ran 10th in the Cup last year. Grows a leg on the wet too.

  3. Gallante ($31)

    Lloyd Williams has already won four Cups. He ticked the 3200m in taking out the Sydney Cup in dominant fashion. Makes his own luck on the pace.

  4. Excess Knowledge ($51)

    Tipping we see the very best of this son of Monsun this spring. Ran 7th in the Cup last year but his return at Moonee Valley suggests he is going even better.

  5. Shimrano ($81)

    The real wildcard. Has his work cutout measuring up in his first Australian preparation but he’ll get his chance with Lee Freedman. Has so much upside.
