The Footy Almanac Melbourne Cup Soiree Trifecta and Sweep (assigned horses and results)





Hi Punters


Magnificent morning here in The People’s Republic of Northcote. I hope you have a great day wherever you are.


We enjoyed a few drinks yesterday afternoon, while discussing the runners. Thanks to P Flynn for being the collator of info.


After much deliberation, and the late injection of some funds I have made the call to add Verry Elleegant to the top selections.


So the trifecta is:


To win:   1  7  12  13  19  21
Second:  1  4  7  12  13  15  19  21
Third:   The Field


For  54.4% of the dividend.


After all entries were included last night, we had enough tickets for four sweeps with a few spots to fill. Family Harms was gong to take them if no-one wnated them. However, those who drew King of Leogrance (were given those spots). So it has worked out well.


Here is the draw for the four sweeps:

  1. CITRUS BOB says

    As a non-punter thank you JTH for a winning afternoon. My wife also drew the winner in a Sweep.

  2. Is that Parsimony says

    Hi JTH,
    Very sorry to see Anthony Van Dyck break down so badly.
    Watching the races again with no crowds was really bizarre although the absence of drunks was positive.
    Stay safe, John
