Melbourne Cup
22 Floating Artist ($12)
Smart support for this ex UK stayer. He’s had the perfect preparation leading into a distance that will suit him. He drops a stack of weight and looks to be really well placed in this.

Kembla Grange R8
11 Salsonic ($4.60)
Veteran galloper who barely runs a bad race. Big drop in grade from an honest 6th in a Randwick Midway. I’m confident he can destroy this field.
