Melbourne Cup - 7 Places

The Melbourne Cup on Tuesday I think has some cracking each way value to be had.
I see Skybet is paying 7 places.

I will be studying the race more closely tonight.
Are you playing, any tips?
Twilight Payment 50/1.

Got this price at Sky last night.
I could not resist it as Melbourne is going to have a soft ground Melbourne Cup.
Ground will not inconvenience my selection.
Ran just over 4 lengths behind Sir Erec last year.
Beat Latrobe in June and that horse is 16/1.
Great jockey on board.
Draw not the best.

7 Places I take my chance.
Best of luck @The Uncouth
