Schweppes Tonic 1000 Tips – Melbourne Cup Day 2010 Race 5

The Schweppes Tonic 1000 is running today at 1:15PM AEDST as race 5 on Melbourne Cup Day 2010. Read on for our top Schweppes Tonic 1000 tips.

Our pick for this race is Sleepers, the favourite at Luxbet at $7.00 to win. Starting from barrier 12, Sleepers is unlikely to get caught on the rail unless put there, and staying off the rail has been vital to victory today. Good form on soft tracks will also serve him well.

We also like the second favourite Trudeau, who is priced at $7.50 and coming out of barrier 9. Another one that likes the wet, we recommend a quinella on Sleepers and Trudeau in the Schweppes Tonic 1000, which we think is likely to pay off.

We aren’t too keen on straight trifecta picks usually, but Sleepers/Trudeau/Stirling Grove looks interesting. Stirling Grove is untested in the wet, but the start away from the inside rail looks like it will serve him well and lead to a place like in his last start.
