Another disastrous performance

Continuing my spectacular run of not picking a Melbourne Cup winner since 1994, my tips today did just as poorly as can be expected:

Master O’Reilly came 4th
Roman Emperor finished 21st
Spin Around finished in 20th place.

On the bright side, I did slightly better than Maritz.
Fiumicino was 22nd past the post.

Live streaming of the 2009 Melbourne Cup

For the benefit of those of you who find yourself in a place where you can not watch the race on television or hear it on the radio, here is a list of webstreams which are known to be broadcasting the race live at 3pm Melbourne time (GMT+11).

Sport 927 (Melbourne): Windows Media
SKY Sports Radio (Sydney): Flash Player
ACTTAB Radio (Canberra): Winamp/iTunes
2CC (Canberra): Windows Media
RadioTAB (Brisbane): Windows Media

Bigpond are allegedly streaming live video of the race at 3pm. I’m not sure how accurate this is though, as the other times I’ve seen live video streams offered of the race, they have not been live, but rather delayed until after the completion of the race, due to Seven’s rights to the live video.

Full results will be posted here at the completion of the race, including TAB dividends as they come in, and the full list of finishers in the order that they pass the post.

Samuel’s Melbourne Cup tips for 2009

With the usual disclaimers about how I haven’t picked a Cup winner since 1994, here are my top three tips for this year:

4: Master O’Reilly
6: Roman Emperor
17: Spin Around

Maritz provided a lengthy and hard to follow tip, however she has condensed it to:
3: Fiumicino, because of the number 859.

As usual, results will be posted as they come in, including the full list of finishers in their order of finishing.

If you have a gambling problem, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14, or the relevant support group in your jurisdiction.
