PICKING A WINNER ON MELBOURNE CUP DAY IS NEVER AN EASY TASK -  ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU'RE A MUG PUNTER! SO WE'VE DECIDED TO MAKE THINGS A LITTLE EASIER, BY ASKING SOME OF MOSMAN'S MOST COLOURFUL LOCALS (AND A FEW LEGITIMATE EXPERTS!) FOR THEIR TIPS, IN THE RACE THAT STOPS A NATION! ANNA USHER REPORTS.

 

 
 

With 24 runners in the field, picking a Melbourne Cup winner is an uphill battle.

While seasoned racing experts have studied the form long and hard ahead of today's race - it's probably fair to say that the rest of us will base our selections on the colour of jockey silks, a particular number - or the name of a horse!

Those in the know say the 2017 Melbourne Cup field is more wide open than it's been in years - and with a record number of international horses up for the $6.2 million prize purse - backing a winner at the 3pm jump is set to be more frustrating than ever.

With Marmelo emerging as the one to beat (over last years winner Almandin) - there are plenty of other contenders capable of taking out top honours, according to our esteemed panel of local identities!

Where will your money go?

Good luck. Gamble responsibly. And giddy up!

Gai Waterhouse - Horse Trainer

1. Cismontane

"He runs in the Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup having won the Lexus Stakes on Saturday. He is ultra-tough and is absolutely thriving in Melbourne. He has a bit to find on ratings but he is in the best form of his life and could well run into a place. Each-way chance.
