Plenty of value for punters

HARTNELL – $4.20 is set to start Tuesday’s 156th running of the Emirates Melbourne Cup as the favourite ahead of 23 other world class horses. 3 wins out of its last 5 starts (including second to Winx in last week’s Cox Plate), Jockey J B Mcdonald will look to cap off a career best racing carnival on board the 5yo Gelding.
Jameka – $6.0 comes into Tuesday’s race off the back of an impressive winning performance in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup two weeks ago, winning by 3 lengths ahead of internationals Scottish and Exospheric. Trainer Ciaron Maher and Jockey Nicholas Hall look to complete the Caulfield Cup — Melbourne Cup double, which would make Jameka the 10th horse in history to complete the prestigious feat.
Bondi Beach – $10.0 looks impressive coming into Tuesday’s race. Despite not having raced since last year’s Melbourne Cup, where it ran 16th, there is a reason this 4yo colt has been backed in by punters as one of the favourites. With a career win rate of 40 per cent and place rate of per cent, he stands to have a much stronger run in this year’s race.
