The Mug Punter: The only day The Beaver got beat

While we’re reminiscing, remember this? I don’t think The Beaver had ever been beaten. But, on Cox Plate Day 2007 we were lining up. It was the day he had to start writing IOUs. A punter called Maso was the biggest winner. Until this day, as Lofty Longden loves to say, I was officially no good at the Cox Plate.
