Who’s gonna win it?
Guaranteed bragging rights if you get it right. Any picks after
12pm 1pm blog time ( 2pm 3pm Melbourne time) will naturally be heartily scoffed at.
I’m going to go Bart Cumming’s Illo with Jim Cassidy on the saddle.
UPDATE Mourayan out
2. Red Cadeaux
3. Lucas Cranach
Almost a dead heat. What a race (and that just being able to hear it on internet radio)!
Day off work today.
Had grave fears for Illo when it was an early leader because the early leader NEVER gets it.
Spooked that I put Dunaden on top of the poll O.o!
What I’ve done the past couple of years is play the youtube clip to the kids the day after. With about 28 kids in a class, and each kid assigned a number at the beginning of the school year by their homeroom teacher (i.e. 1-28), one kid gets to be the lucky winner [the other five will get to pick a number of their choice, chillax]).
Sure, it’s just dumb luck, but then again… ;-)
The kids have a ball, and it’s a little bit of cultural fun. No use teaching or learning the language without a bit of culture chucked in! :-)
Click back for finals.
“Beaten by a pixel.”
Funny, that the headline in the “some prelims” link initially said, “Red Cadeaux Wins The 2011 Melbourne Cup – Results!”
Headline was subsequently changed, lol.
Cripes. Illo 19th. Don’t take my advice!
