Melbourne Cup raises high hopes for Punters and Bookies

The Melbourne Cup which has become a big betting bonanza over the years for the professional punter also has its share of ‘once a year punters’ who throw in a wager just for the fun of it.

However, to the hardened punter it is the ultimate race which must be won at all cost … at least according to the tips that are offered.

But the reality will set in when the race is run and winner is known.

With the Melbourne Cup every contender can win whether it is the favourite or an outsider given they get the chance to make it.
