We are all getting well and truly getting inundated from all the corporate bookies with various offers at the moment. Bonus bet back if you run second or third here, enhanced odds and extra percentages on a particular bet there. All great offers if you take advantage of them but there's one tomorrow that trumps them all for the little punters.
In the first race at Flemington tomorrow Neds are giving punters a free shot at the stumps, literally. Back a runner at fixed odds with Neds in the first race at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day and if it doesn't win then get your full stake back up to $20! (Cash not a bonus bet).
Don't worry about watching anxiously if you can hang on for second or third. Have a stress free crack at whatever you like and if it runs like a busted then you don't lose out.
For the race itself it's a tough one. We think 2. Qalifa for the Hayes and Dabernig was an impressive debut winner and go on with it here at $3.50 . However given the promotion we might be best off seeing this as a free hit to find some value. 7. Kara's Hope jumped well in a trial a month back and travelled nicely throughout. Wasn't asked for an effort and I'd be respecting Tim Martin coming down here in races like this. Hyeronimus sticks from that hit out and she's at a $13.00 quote.
