It’s show time. The Melbourne Cup is finally here, which means we’re down to the business end of the Sportsbet.com.au Spring Tipping Challenge against the Knights.
Mitch has taken last year’s runner up Red Cadeaux, he’s currently $9. Red Cadeaux finished 2nd last year and Mitch is hoping the 7 year old from England can go one better and claim victory this time around.
The $100 each way bet for the Steggles Charity Nest has been placed and should Red Cadeaux salute Mitch will collect around $1200 for the Kitty.
Jarrod Mullen has taken the 2010 winner and favourite Americain who’s currently $6. ?Mitch needs a victory in one of the last two races in the Spring Challenge to catch Jarrod who’s currently in the lead.
Unlike other bookies who only pay 1st 2nd and 3rd for each way and place bets on the Cup, Sportsbet.com.au will also be paying 4th place! Check it out, click here.
