Melbourne Cup Preview - Matt Hill
Australia will grind to a halt this week as the country watches the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup.
Aussie race caller Matt Hill gives us his take on the famous contest, assessing the chances of last year's winner Dunaden and whether he can win it for a second year in succession.
There is plenty of opposition to the French raider however, with last year's runner-up, Red Cadeaux, re-opposing and last year's fourth placed runner and winner of the 2010 renewal, Americain, in this year's line-up.
That's not even mentioning the home brigade and those at bigger prices all of which are dicussed on this preview.
