2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips are.
- #1 Americain: He is undefeated in Australia in three starts. Two from last year in the Geelong Cup and Melbourne Cup and the Moonee Valley Cup this year. The jockey Gerard Mosse got off and said he only used 70% of his resources when winning the Moonee Valley Cup – He is back for a repeat and it is looking good. He is our top horse 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips Luxbet odds $5
- #3 Dunaden: He is another French runner who is literally following in the footsteps of Americain. He won this year’s Geelong Cup at his only Australian start impressively. It wil be a story as Craig Williams was supposed to ride but misses out through suspension. French jockey Christophe Lemaire takes the reins for his first ride in Australia. Luxbet odds $8
- #23 Niwot: The money just keeps coming for the Lexus Stakes winner whodrops four kilograms for that easy win on Saturday. He like the first two will run the 3200m of the Melbourne Cup right out and must be added in. He gets our nod for third. Luxbet odds $9
- #17 At First Sight is the tip of rival trainer Peter Snowden whodoesn’t have a horse in the race. Snowden is having a great carnival with his own horses and lets see how he picks others. This horse ran a bottler in the Bendigo Cup last Wednesday and drops in weight. He makes up our first four. Luxbet odds $13 The 2011 Melbourne Cup Day tips best bolter?
- #16 Modun: One of Sheikh Mohammed’s runners. While the Sheikh has come close to winning the Melbourne Cup he hasn’t quite done it. This fella gives him a chance and if you are looking for him in the race- he is the big horse 17 hands. Lightly raced Modun could be the surprise. Luxbet odds $26
