Having watched a replay looks a disgusting Melbourne Cup trial this year.

1-2 a mile clear but must have 3200m and weight doubts (with VE penalty).

not backing TCO to repeat that at Flemington and you know what you get with Finche and POA.

Pen the rest

Tiger Moth will be $8+ best tote on the day. No point backing it now. Same goes for the baby
Baby will be Australia’s love child surely? What was his TT last year? only thing stopping huge unders on the tote is no Ollie in my head at least.

Nah would expect your casuals to be more interested in your camels and Very Elleegants. Out of sight, out of mind for the baby

It is Tiger Moss for me. The other chances are AVD, Russian Camelot, Prince of Arran spot on after his CC run. I think Surprise Baby is overrated and VE gets a penalty and bigger distance doubt than AVD who would have beat her in CC on a good track or if you swapped barriers.

Keep Finche and PoA as your C's for the multiples and moving right along.

PARIS POWER RANKINGS - CLASS RISES

A nice shake up this week after the Caulfield Cup and with Santiago dusting a host of antepost tickets to take a rest.

1 - TIGER MOTH (LW #1, $6.4) - Main rival injured sees this guy firm another point on Betfair. Approaching 5/1 with many on at $50s - so surely can't win.
2 - ANTHONY VAN DYCK (LW 5, $11.5) - Biggest certainty beat in a CC since Veandercross. Carrying the weight at Flemington plus the two miles the obvious query but might not have to beat much in a weak year.
3 - VERRY ELLEEGANT (LW #7, $15.5) - Big climber in the rankings after a brilliant CC win - hard to see her holding off AVD at Flemington with the penalty and if they both get fair runs. Still races erratically which could cost her to a greater degree over the two miles.
4 - RUSSIAN CAMELOT (LW #2, $12) - Get's his chance to jump back over the CC runners with a big Cox Plate performance on Saturday
5 - SURPRISE BABY (LW #4, Betfair $11.5) - Continues to edge out on Betfair as classier runners show they are in form.
6 - SIR DRAGONET (LW #6, $50) - Big betfair drifter the last couple of weeks - obvious stamina concerns but at least we will get to see how he has acclimatized on Saturday.
7 - FINCHE (LW #8, $21) - Raced wide, loomed as the winner, failed to place in Caulfield Cup. Will do the same at Flemington. If you put win money on this horse at Caulfield or do so at Flemington you are a dead set moron.
8 - PRINCE OF ARRAN (LW #9, $15) - Have never seen bigger poi poi in the history of the race than this bloke at $15. Great run at Caulfield but see Finche for those considering a win bet.
9 - NICKAJACK CAVE (LW u/r, $50) - Last two spots will go to whoever performs at Geelong/MV Cup - just throwing in the UK gallopers as I obviously hate all the French from.
10 - LE DON DE VIE (LW u/r, $85) - See Nickajack Cave.

Everything continues to fall into place for that mare. Would have to be one of the luckiest horses in recent memory. Half a kilo only... really?!
