Pido's bowl is missing!

We have to help him find it. Noses up, everyone. Sniff patrol! ALL: Sniffing... ..sniffing... Sniffing. Ah-ha!

Did you find my bowl, Razzles? buried under the cushions. No. But I found this puzzle That's MY puzzle! I was playing with it yesterday. under the cushions? How did it get buried TRILBY: Sniffing. (SNIFFS) Sniffing. Ah-ha! Did you find my bowl, Trilby? buried under the rug. No. But I found your painting yesterday. I was painting that picture

How did it get buried under the rug?

Sniffing... (SNIFFS) Ah-ha! I found your bowl, Pido. It was buried in the toy box. How did my bowl get in there? while we were all asleep. Someone must have buried it Who could be doing such a thing? It's a mystery, alright. How are we going to solve it?

I feel an invention coming on! Don't look at me. I was sleeping too. I call it the Sleep Patrol 750. these special paw prints If anyone steps on while we're asleep, it'll set off an alarm.

Wow! Just by stepping on this paw! (ALARM WAILS) ALL: Raggs!

That's your cleverest invention yet, B.Max. And the loudest! Now we'll find out who's burying my things while we're all asleep. (YAWNS) It's time for sleep, everyone. Just as soon as I finish my snack. Pido, I don't think it's a good idea to eat such a huge snack before you go to sleep.

But if I eat lots now, I'll have lots of energy the moment I wake up. (SLURPS)

(CRICKETS CHIRP, OWL HOOTS) (SNORES) (ALARM WAILS) Pido! Who? What? Where?

Did we find out who's burying my things? Yes. It's you! Me? Look, you're burying your book in the toy box. You've been burying everything in your sleep. SONG: # The moon is up # The stars are out # Night has fallen # We all know what that's about # Sleep is calling

# Even if we beg and shout # "I don't want to" # They're gonna turn the lights out # You know it's true # Goodbye, today And that's OK Hey, hey, hey # We'll have a slumber party # Yeah, we'll party till we sleep # We'll have a slumber party

# Playing games or counting sheep # A slumber party

# Dancing shadows on the wall # With all this counting and this dancing # Pretty soon I'm gonna fall... # Day is done The night begins # I'm not ready # To pull the covers up to my chin # Where's my teddy? # All the sounds that I can hear # Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh # They are music to my ears

# You know it's true # Day turns to night That's alright Out of sight! # Yeah, we'll party till we sleep # We'll have a slumber party # Playing games or counting sheep # A slumber party # Dancing shadows on the wall # With all this counting and this dancing # Pretty soon I'm gonna fall... #

What is sleep? Er...you sleep in your bed. And then you put your head on the pillow...

..and a blanket on you.

And then you close your eyes. Did you go to sleep? (MOANS) Yes. Do you like sleeping? Yeah.

I had a little sleep. You had a little sleep? No. And...and you have a sleep too?

I love sleeping! What does 'sleep' mean? You're tired. Hey, when we sleep, do we disappear? No. Where do you sleep? In my bed. Big bed! Is it a big bed? Yeah. How big is it? Um...it's a flower one.

Why would Pido bury his book, his puzzle, his painting and his bowl all while he's asleep? Let's examine this scientifically. What's the last thing you did before you went to sleep, Pido?

That's easy. I washed my paws and brushed my teeth. But we all washed our paws and brushed our teeth. And we had a grrreat sleep! So, what did you do before you brushed your teeth, Pido? Now, let's see. I had my yummy bedtime snack. That's it, Pido! You're eating a great big snack right before you go to bed! It's not good to eat a big meal right before bedtime.

That must be why you've been burying things in your sleep.

Why not have a warm glass of milk instead? That'll help you have a nice, relaxing sleep. Grrreat idea! Thanks, B.Max. Hey! What's all the ruckus? Can't a cat get some sleep around here? Sheesh! Now, where was I? Um...

Oh, yes! I remember. (SNORES) There! I've put my bowl and my toys away. And had a nice warm glass of milk. Well done, Pido. (YAWNS) Now it's time we all got some sleep. Nighty-night, everyone. ALL: Nighty-night!

(CRICKETS CHIRP) (ROOSTER CROWS) I had a grrreat sleep last night! Now, it's time for breakfast.

Here's my bowl. Right where I put it. Oh, no. My favourite wholemeal Doggy Pops are missing. Not again! You must have buried them in your sleep.

No. I think Raggs is burying them right now! In his belly! Oops. Pawssup! (ALL SING) # Move, move, move your body # Move, move, move your feet # It's fun to move with everybody

# Let's move it to the beat

# When we wake up in the morning

# We feel like we've gotta move # We're gonna play outside # We're gonna hit our stride # Because we feel that movin' groove # No use to sit around complaining # That there's nothing fun to do # 'Cause once we catch that beat It moves down to our feet # We bounce around like kangaroos

# You've got to move, move, move your body # You've got to move, move, move your feet # It's fun to move with everybody # When we're movin' to the beat # You've got to circulate # You've got to celebrate # Get on your feet and dance # When you hear the sound You want to move around # Come on and take a chance # Move, move, move # Move, move, move # You've got to move, move, move # Dance, dance, dance # Dance, dance, dance # We're gonna dance, dance, dance # We're gonna dance # When the morning time is over

# We move into afternoon # We feel the sun on our face # Move all over the place # And dance to a happy tune # When the day is almost over # We've been movin' all day long # But we can move some more # So let's hit the floor # And we'll sing this movin' song

# You've got to move, move, move your body # You've got to move, move, move your feet # It's fun to move with everybody # When we're movin' to the beat # C'mon and move, move, move your body # You know you've got to move # Move, move, move your feet # Go on and move # Go on and move with everybody # Move with everybody # Come on and help us feel the beat # Move, move, move! # Do you like sleeping? Yes. What do you like about sleeping, Alana? Um, to sleep in and rest. When you sleep, you have a little dream about fairies.

When your fairies are flying off. I like about sleeping is that you get to snuggle in your nice warm bed. Do you like sleeping?

Er, no. But you need to. Why do you need to sleep? Because when you sleep, it rests your muscles so you can be nice and strong and smart.

Have you ever had a night where you couldn't sleep? Um, yes. What keeps you awake when you can't sleep? When my sister wakes me up. What would it be like if we didn't sleep? Um... ..if you didn't sleep, it might be very...very hard. Because you do all this stuff and maybe you just need a rest. I think if I didn't sleep... ..I'd be grumpy. (CHUCKLES) Do you ever get grumpy? Sometimes. When you don't get things your way. Here's how you sleep. That's sleeping? It's Wag'n'Wiggle time. And that means time to stretch out and go for a big swim. First, one arm up, then down through the water. Now, the other arm up, and down through the water. Come on, guys. Join in the swim. One arm up, Now the other arm up, and down through the water. Hey, that was good.

Now, let's celebrate by playing some cool drums. A boom, and a boom, and a boom-boom-boom. Your turn, guys.

A boom, and a boom and a boom-boom-boom. Now, let's have fun doing our favourite moves as we all Wag'n'Wiggle.

(SINGS) # Time to roll'n'rock all around the block # Do you wanna wag'n'wiggle all the day?

# In your own backyard or a favourite park # Do you wanna wag'n'wiggle all the day?

# Gonna wag # Ooh # Gonna wag our cares away # All it takes to make us giggle is a waggle and a wiggle

# Do you wanna wag'n'wiggle all the day? # Do ya wanna wag'n'wiggle? # Zig and zag and jiggle

all the day? # Gonna wag # Ooh

# Gonna wag our cares away

# All it takes to make us giggle is a waggle and a wiggle # Do you wanna wag'n'wiggle all the day?

# Ooh # Gonna wag # Ooh # Gonna wag our cares away # All it takes to make us giggle is a waggle and a wiggle # Do you wanna wag'n'wiggle all the day? all the day? # (SIGHS) We've washed our paws and brushed our teeth. Is everyone ready to go to sleep? Yep. I've got my teddy. I've got my special blankie.

And I've got my favourite bedtime book. Trilby, you don't look like you're ready for sleep. No way! After I finish kicking this ball, I'm going to jump rope and then play with my building blocks. Don't you think you should go to sleep now and play in the morning? Your body needs sleep so you can grow up strong and healthy! Oh, I'm much too busy to sleep.

Let's all sing a song! ALL: What? Now? It's bedtime!

I know. Maybe if we sing a song, Trilby will go to sleep. Grrreat idea! OK, Trilby. But just this once. Grrreat! Come on, everyone. Let's play!

(SINGS) # I close my eyes and pretend to see # All the things that I would like to be # I close my eyes # It isn't hard to be

(DANCE MUSIC PLAYS) Morning, gang. Trilby, have you been to sleep yet? Nope. I've been dancing.

Step, two, three. Twirl! Kicking the ball. And playing games all night! You must be mega tired. Don't you want to have a little sleep? No way! I don't want to miss any of the fun things you're going to do. But if you sleep at night like we do, you won't miss out on anything. Then we can sleep at the same time and all play at the same time! Nope. I'm not going to miss anything because I'm not going to sleep. ALL: Huh? Now, come on, everyone, it's time to play puppy in the middle. You wouldn't want to see me without MY beauty sleep. No more Mr Nice Cat. No siree. Yep. I am one cranky cat without my sleep! (YAWNS) Come on, Raggs.

Throw the ball! It's your turn! OK! Here comes Raggs for his big throw. Oh, no! I missed the ball! You threw it too fast. Maybe you're tired. Are you sure you don't want to have just a little sleep?

I am not tired!

Let's play a different game! Like chasing our tails. Come on, everyone. Let's chase our tails. I love chasing my tail! Whoa! Trilby, are you alright? You look super tired. Maybe you should have a little sleep. I'm not tired! And I'm too busy for sleep. Too many fun things to do. Like playing hide-and-seek. B.Max, you count. We'll hide. OK. One...two...three... I found everyone except Trilby. Where could she be? Over here! She's fallen asleep. Who's asleep? Not me! I was just resting my eyes. Come on, everyone. Let's play!

Oh, no. Trilby's so tired but she won't go to sleep. How can we get her to sleep? SONG: # The moon is up # The stars are out # Night has fallen # We all know what that's about # Sleep is calling # Even if we beg and shout # "I don't want to"

# They're gonna turn the lights out # You know it's true # Goodbye, today And that's OK Hey, hey, hey # We'll have a slumber party # Yeah, we'll party till we sleep # We'll have a slumber party # Playing games or counting sheep # A slumber party # Dancing shadows on the wall # With all this counting and this dancing # Pretty soon I'm gonna fall..

# Day is done The night begins # I'm not ready # To pull the covers up to my chin # Where's my teddy? # All the sounds that I can hear # Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh # They are music to my ears # You know it's true # Day turns to night That's alright Out of sight! # Yeah, we'll party till we sleep # We'll have a slumber party # Playing games or counting sheep # A slumber party # Dancing shadows on the wall # With all this counting and this dancing # Pretty soon I'm gonna fall... #

Do you sleep with the light on?

Have you got a night-light? Yes. What colour is it? It's...yellow. Does it make you feel safe? Yes. Yeah. When I turn off the light and close the door, I be scared. What do you wear to go to sleep? Pyjamas.

What are pyjamas? Um, Daddy's special clothes. And you go to sleep in them. Does everyone have to sleep? Well, yep, because it's not really good that you stay up at night when you're supposed to get to sleep. After a long sleep, you can get lots of energy. (YAWNS) What was that? It's called snoring. Snoring?! What about yawning? What's a yawn? A yawn is when up and go, "Yawn." What kinds of things make you feel very tired? Yawning. Can you show me one? (YAWNS) Club meeting! Group howl. (ALL HOWL) How are we going to show Trilby that sleep is important? I've got an idea! Gather round. My favourite thing in the whole world is sleep. And fish. And chasing mice. Yep! That's my top three. Yeah.

(YAWNS) I'm not...sleepy. Must...play. OK, Trilby. Enough's enough! We're going to give you a sleep test. A sleep test? (YAWNS) And if you get the answers right, then you can play and play and never sleep again. But if you get the answers wrong, you have to have a sleep.

This'll be easy because I'm wide awake. How many teddies am I holding up? One...three. Um, seven? Can you catch this ball? I got it. (YAWNS)

I was yawning. Throw it again.

Too late. What shape am I holding up? Easy peasy. It's a... (YAWNS) ..circle. Trilby, you didn't get any right! I didn't? How can you play if you can't count or catch a ball or choose a triangle? Oh, you're right, Pido. Sorry, everyone. From now on, I'll sleep at night when you all sleep

so I'll be fresh and ready to play in the morning. That way, we can all play together again! ALL: Yay! (SNORES) ALL: Aw! Shh! She'll feel much better after she's had a nice big sleep. (ALL WHISPER) Pawssup.

SONG: # Pawssup, everybody Diddy-do-wah-day

(heart beats and music plays)

(dramatic music). What if we told

you in a tick over three minutes

your life would be changed forever?

A lottery win, celebrity status, a

place in history?

All rolled into one moment in time. All rolled into one moment in time.

Yours, for the keeping.

The Emirates Melbourne Cup has a

147-year tradition of changing

people's lives. Winning the

Melbourne Cup was really, so life- changing. changing.

And I think on that day we slipped

into an alternate universe and we

have never come back from it. Wendy

Green was a battling teacher from

Darwin when Rogan Josh won in 19

Olympian. The hobby farmwer her

first horse become part of Cup

folklore. Until that day, we had no

yied we had just cemented our place

in history. John had never seen

Flemington or the horse he was

about to ride before he piloted an

outsider to victory in 19. It

changes your life, a jockey's life,

a trainer's life, an owner's life

and it changes a horse's life. and it changes a horse's life.

Winning the Cup has made giflt-

edged Aussie heroes. Glen Boss to

ride Makybe Diva into the record

books. A champion becomes a legend!

Go and find the smallest child in

this course because they will an

example of an only person here who

will live long enough to see

something like that again.

Today, the toughest and bravest

stayers and jockeys from around

Australia and the word will thunder

across Flemington's hallowed turf.

Over recent years, the wave of

foreigners has built in size and strength.

The Irish horse will win! Through

the victories of Vintage chroncrop

and the quinella lost in

translation, now it has reached

tidal proportions, the raiders have

already struck, the borne stayers

from the Northern Hemisphere are

here in force to claim our great

race. Can an Aussie repel the

invasion? Are the Kiwis ready to

take another?

The Cup is racing's Holy Grail. It

is obsessive, emotion-charged, a

national treasure. And a global

attraction. Today, trainers will

study, owners will quiver,

strappers will pace, and punters

will hang on to their wallets for will hang on to their wallets for

deaf life. For some, life might

never be the same again.

One horse race and the world stops. One horse race and the world stops.

Has redefined everything I have

done in my life. That is the story

out of the Melbourne Cup, is the

mystique of it, it is why we all

chase that dream. Three-and-a-bit

minutes, for lives to be changed forev.

So Wendy Green who won as an owner

in 1999 and John Letts as a rider,

just two of the 114 winning stories.

A wonderful day in Melbourne, all

roads and helicopters, as it seems

lead to Flemington on Emirates

Melbourne Cup day. Could it be the Melbourne Cup day. Could it be the

Europeans, could Bart ored Lloyd? Europeans, could Bart ored Lloyd?

Olly or Glen Boss join the

immoralles or will the best stayer

in the world win it. That is all up

for grabs. So many storpies here

today, it is special. No doubt

about it. It is Melbourne Cup day.

Thank God for the Europeans, they

have jazzed it up. I'm with Simon

and Richard. It is a full stop, an

exclamation mark, a moment in time.

Good mornings, all Australians let

us rejoice, for we all get the day

off. It is Melbourne Cup day. Bondi,

a Pinot in Perth, step out of the

churches in Adelaide or whack on a churches in Adelaide or whack on a

banger on the Barby in Brisbaney to

celebrate. What a day, Richie? You

couldn't be more right. It is part

of being Australian. If you have a

flutter on the Melbourne Cup, you

are part of it and it is part of

you. I have seen a man dressed as

the Queen here and a lady dressed

as Elvis already. It will be a big

party on course. They are having a

terrific time in Tasmania

dleeliously happy in Darwin too.

The two-year-old fillies start

The consolation for the Melbourne

Cup runners in the Lavazza Stakes.

The three-year-old fillies in the

Lexs stakes and the $5.5 million trophy of the Cup.

A a lot of scratchings, 13 in total.

In race 1, take out:

We have talked for a moment what it

means for us, well, 162 countries

join us when we get to the Cup hour

at 2.15, that entertainment and the

magic moment when the horses go

from the parade ring, into the

tunnel, into the mounting yard. A

couple of chances, we hope, to help

you back the winner. At 10.30 and

12.50, where we have the special

preview. One man to help us back

the winner is Peter Donegan, good morning! Good morning!

Good morning, so the big day is

with us. A great day in in two

Hemispheres, the Americans have two

to choose from, here we have 22. We

are going to do all the choosing on

a day when there might be a few

showers. A top temperature of 20

degrees. Currently it is 14 but

considerably warmer than it was

earlier this morning. Well, if

there is one thing that has been

spoken about more than the likely

winner is the state of the

Flemington track. I can't see any

aprecable difference to the track

on sad. When we arrived on derby

day, a dead-4 rated track. The

penetrometer reading is 4.7, the

rail has been moved out two metres

is the difference. I would expect a

track upgrade early on in the day.

So in about five hours or under,

stand by for the roar, stand by

three minutes after that to crown

the 148th champion of the Melbourne

Cup. Stapd by for the race to take

another step to become not only our

race but the world's race. Well said.. Interesting stuff. I can't believe

the odds they are offing about Mad

Rush. Too short, for mine. I think

he is poor value at that. But I

have to say, Septimus, you are

shopping brilliantly there. I would

keep Voltchkov. I have a dream. It

is going to be a ding-dong battle.

Septimus will get to the front. But

$8.40, Septimus, if you back the

world's greatest stayer and he wins,

you will be rich. Let's look at the

totes for the opening event today.

The race for the two-year-old fillies.

Limealicious trialled here well on

Tuesday morning, I am singing

because I have my money on her. And

I'm A Smarty Pants, the best money.

I will sing after the race if

Limealicious gets up. I see peat

dawn00 has gone for that.. Baseline

Not too far away, the fillies are

in the mounting yard. A bit crowd

building. There is Dancescape. She

has earn adwin and the has earn adwin and the favourite at

$3. On the way out of othe mounting

yard on to the track for the opening event, the Schiavello Stakes.

That is Remote Reading with Nash

Rawiller, making a mess of the

roses and a mess of herself on the

way to the track. She is frightened.

She is just here for the first time

and is frightened. Nash Rawiller

has taken the blinkers off her, a

good piece of horsemanship. She

will settle down and let Nash

remount. Don't worry about that,

the Clarkes get a hold of the ears,

it makes her concentrate on him

rather than things going on around

of it. She is a baby away from home. of it. She is a baby away from home.

She is unfamiliar with the

conditions. It is what happens with

horses, prior to the Melbourne Cup,

their nervous energy can really

ruin their chances on the day but

let's hope she runs well for the

connections. A huge betting day connections. A huge betting day

today,bust of the year, a big

welcome to Patty? Dancescape, a

favourite but opening up squiny the

market. The favourite by a couple

of points at at this stage,

Limealicious $4.60 out to $5.

Rostova out to $5.50 abig drifter.

And Tariks", Face The Ace, solid, double-figure odds. And Tariks", Face The Ace, solid, double-figure odds. double-figure odds. ,

Not a lot of money around, but a

big crowd building up and it has

just gone 10 o'clock. Any boards up

for the Cup, who is favourite?

$5.50 for Mad Rush, $ 6.50 for $5.50 for Mad Rush, $ 6.50 for

Septimus, and where is Profound

Beauty, a fantastic battle. David

Hayes has had a great run with two-

year-olds. Yes, she did trial down

the straight agood pointer. It was

on Tuesday with Breakfast with the

Stars and she was comfortable with

the business. Richie, I want to ask

you, your brother has one in, it

has trialled and trialled well has trialled and trialled well

running from 800 metres. I think

she has got ability, they wouldn't

bring her if she didn't. A big bring her if she didn't. A big

strong filly and they think she strong filly and they think she

will go well. She is well behaved.

It is not worrying her too much.

But some of the other horses, this

is Remote Reading having the

blinkers replaced. Now she is away

from the crowd, she might settle from the crowd, she might settle

down and let her jockey, Nash

Rawiller control her. She has gone

off, going down the race, getting

on to to the track for the first

time. The blinkers will go back on,

she is upset. There is speculation

and worry she will go off in the

barriers when she is loaded up. She

has burned nervous energy, she is

not happy, fairly uncomfortable

with the activities. Her ears are

back on her heads. There is the

risk she could go off in the barriers.

Any late moves? Yes, for Dancescape.

Is it going to start the way

Saturday finishs? With the three

hot favourites really skining the

book as late. $3.into $2.80 late.

She is towy, Remote Reading.

Dancescape a good go, Pat tells us, Dancescape a good go, Pat tells us,

into $2.80. This is the key moment.

They got a huge opinion, before she

ran at Flemington, behind Alyses, ran at Flemington, behind Alyses,

Robert Burns said it is the best in

the stable. That is Dancescape that

Simon is talking about. Remote Simon is talking about. Remote

Reading goes in, Face The Ace comes

in. Let's join the RACE CALLER:.

RACE CALLER: Face The Ace is ready,

Dancescape will be the last to get

set. $2.40, Dancescape is the

favourite. Move under to the

outside stalls, so ready for the

first on Cup day. All set for the

Schiavello Stakes.

Over the 1,000 metres up the Over the 1,000 metres up the straight.

straight. No, no! Drawn in gate 8

and away they go. They come

immediately to the grandstand side,

running for the first 200. Rostova

comes with them. That is the trio,

down towards the inside, Avenue

Montaigne first out. Cross in front Montaigne first out. Cross in front

of lime liep. Face The Ace and I'm

A Smarty Pants behind Remote

Reading. Bringing up the rear of

the five runners. Looking to the

grandstand again and it is Tariks

on the outside with Dancescape on

the rail and they are leading a the rail and they are leading a

couple of lengths clear from

Rostova. Coming to the 400 on the

flat side now, it is Avenue

Montaigne under pressure, so too,

Face The Ace and two lengths in Face The Ace and two lengths in

front of Limealicious. I'm A Smarty

Pants. Dancescape is coming at it

with 200 metres, Rostova from

Dancescape, it is Rostova on this

side, in front of Dancescape, and

I'm A Smarty Pants on the flat side, I'm A Smarty Pants on the flat side,

but Rostova is doing it easily.

Rostova scored comfortably on the

line, two or three lengths to I'm A

Smarty Pants and Dancescape will be

third, Limealicious fourth on the third, Limealicious fourth on the inside. inside.

Then Remote Reading, Tariks showed

up and dropped out on the

grandstand rail, back towards the

end was Avenue Montaigne who showed

plenty of speed before weakening as

did Face The Ace, who is last home.

Steven King and Steve Richards combining. Steven riding Littorio

in the Cup today. A Cup winner with

Let's Elope. So very well bred. Had

no public trials. They split up, we

didn't see it on Saturday, but a

lot to like about this filly.

Locally trained too, it might be

the key to it. Wasn't worried about

the conditions, some of the others

were looking at the crowd and

gawking. They were inside for most

of the way but Rostova broke away

in the last 200 metres and the race

was over here. Very impressive am.

She was very impressive because she

galloped by herself, three to four

horses off the running rail, what

horses off the running rail, what

you got to like, in front of a big

steeld, she got away from the herd

and got away from them. Very good

signs for the future for her. A

very early going two-year-old, very early going two-year-old,

which means she will be put away

now and ready for a race like a

Blue Diamond. Robert Smerdon

finishing second and third. Simon,

you would know, and you too, John

too, start the winner for the

Melbourne Cup for Steven King. You

might have thought he was on the might have thought he was on the

favourite for the kup, but it is favourite for the kup, but it is

not to be. He has got a live chance

though, on Littorio, but a very

impressive win? Yes, interesting to

get your on this filly but it

looked good. get your on this filly but it

looked good. The best I have been

on. Ever? Ev. A big wrap. Great for

Steve Richards, big names going

down the paddock. A young horse.

She looks like she is very well

educate. Could have taken the

leaders. I had to let her go

because she is still learning and

that straight racing is a bit

tricky. She will come back a good

filly in the autumn. Out to the

1200, no problems, the way she ran

today, go no problems? Stkpwhree

She has got to mature, very

exciting. Great way to start

Melbourne Cup day, good luck later

on with Littorio. From one Steve to

another, Steven King to Steve

Richards?. Yes a very good racing

type. Always had a good opinion of

her. It is the first time we let

her go. She came down the outside

with the favourite but put paid to with the favourite but put paid to

the favourite very quickly? Yes,

she is going for a spell now. I

have been sitting on her if a while.

Had a good spring, one of the

players went amiss so I was waiting

for something to go with her too

but she hung on good, we got

through today. I ran her on

Saturday with the Plate, she had a

slight set back, it is what I think

of it. What about the autumn? Can

you fly all the way? Yes, the best

two-year-old I have ever had. A

spell and come back for it Blue

Diamond. A great way to start our

great day. Thanks. It is the fourth

time Steve Richards has had a

winner in the carnival. Steven King

saying it is the best he has been

on. To win a group one level,

Hurricane Sky came out and won many

races with him, but Steven races with him, but Steven King is

a great judge. We have to believe

him. A lot to like about the

opening winner. Very confident

going in. So rost, and Steve

Richards combine on the first of

the 10 on Melbourne Cup day.

following the running of Schiavello

Stakes. Our host is director,

Katherine Bird and I would like to

introduce Robert Tigana of

relationship we look to explore

future with the Melbourne Cup

carnival. Let me present the presentation to presentation to the owner, without

further adough, to the winner of

the 2008 Schiavello Stakes, Mr John

Hymatt. The greatest staying race

in the world and it is why the best

favourite for the Cup. You have

boards set. A good betting market?

Mad Rush will be the favourite. A

popular, fantastic run in the

Caulfield Cup so no doubt it will

start favourite. Septimus an easing

favourite, out to $6.50. Some of

the punters from Australia don't think the

think the horse will measure up

today. Nom Du Jeu, winning in

Auckland so Profound Beauty the one

coming into the market, big money

at $8, book makers giving it $sixth

so more money to come from it. Not

often to say you have a 100 to 1

winner and you had a

winner and you had a tough day?

Derby you told 10 to 15%. Most of Derby you told 10 to 15%. Most of

the other winners, the last three

races were very well backed. The

punters on the day, they had a

break-even day or losing day. Your

tip for the cup?" Nom Du Jeu.

Interesting, going for the New Interesting, going for the New Zealand stayer..

Zealand stayer..

We think we have got a lot of basis

covered here, maybe all of them at

Flemington. At last it is here, the

day we have been waiting for. At

three o'clock, the heartbeat of the

nation will quicken. More than 10

million will watch on, holding

their breath and hoping, will you

hold the winning ticket. Don't

worry about three minutes of madness on

madness on the track, in the madness on the track, in the

Birdcage the whole time will be mad.

I will be meeting a many profound

not talking Honolulu, we might be

off to Paris and Lilan. A design award, plenty

ladies to be viewed as they go ladies to be viewed as they go

Zipping down the catwalk. We met Zipping down the catwalk. We met

colourful characters on Saturday

but it was nothing. Wait until you

see who we meet on Cup day, a day

when anything goes. I never thought

I would say it, but it is not just

about the party, there is also the

punting to think about. If you

stick with me, I'll give you tips stick with me, I'll give you tips bout the business bout the business of betting. We

will show you how to win, here at

Lavazza we are about making money

for charity. Yes, it is the plan.

It is going to be huge, every angle

covered here on Seven, so let's go

racing! We have got people

everywhere here at Flemington today,

looking forward to the coverage.

Let's try to help you today back

the winner of the Cup. Richard? Starting

Starting with you? One, still the

Mad Rush? I think Mad Rush will win

today. I'm not certain of it. I

have a feeling he will run well,

I'm going to stick with him over

Septimus, who is the best stayer in

the world, taking him on trust the

track will be to his liking. Nom Du

Jeu, the best of the Southern Hem

steer horses and throwing in

Profound Beauty because there are is

is such a wrap. But I want other

horses. What made you strong about

Mad Rush? His run in the Caulfield

Cup wasoutstanding. I doubted the

form when the Japanese horse, Delta

Blues did it. There he is in the

back, in the Maroon colours. Delta

Blues won it and flashed home, I

thought it is a flash in the pan,

can't trust it from a horse can't trust it from a horse from

another country. But I have learned

my lesson, when I you see one do it

in the Caulfield Cup, always the in the Caulfield Cup, always the

best guide, stay with them. Mad

Rush, Richard back to you in a

moment. Down to the parade ring.

Michael, last time there was a lot

happening? Yes, we had the morning

scratching and then we had maybe

Maybe Better taken out a couple of Maybe Better taken out a couple of hours before

hours before the big race but so

far all the news is good news. I

have spoken to the vets and the 22

runners remain in the cup, every is

fine, they will arrive on course

about one p.m. And we will be with

them every step of the way. The

international are the main international are the main

favourite, 7 left after

Yellowstone's scratching. It is

imparaative how they arrive on the

track. None will have seen a race day like the

day like the Melbourne Cup or a

crowd like the 110,000, and the

hype. Mad Rush has only had a few

starts and and so we will be with

them every stem of the way to see

how they settle in. You mepbgd

mensed Sunday, Profound Beauty, we

were worried. I can hear the siren

blowing in the back grond, not blowing in the back grond, not sure

what it means. Richard? Who is your

favourite? I like Septimus for all

the reasons, the last win tpwht the reasons, the last win tpwht

Irish Saint Ledgeered. He has con Irish Saint Ledgeered. He has con

convincingly over his last few

races. Mad Rush for all the reasons, races. Mad Rush for all the reasons,

he looks fantasting. SES, he beat

Nom Du Jeu by six lengths on that

occasion.Loid Williams has wrapped

imup. Barbaricus is in great form.

That is him in the purple, he bores

to the front with the jockey,

to the front with the jockey,

JAHeffernan and bloz them away. The

horse that ran second has won since.

He has got a fantastic stride,

cruised from the herd. What I liked cruised from the herd. What I liked

about the track work earlier in the

week, his trainer, Hayden O'Brian has

has simulated track conditions.

They allowed the horse to work off them in track

them in track work and he cruised

past them. I can't help but think

he brought the right horse. Does

the weight worry you. Think Big is

last. The only horses who have won

it are horses like Kingston Town.

Stphroo I think it is a luxury, he

is used to the big weights. It is a

luxurious weight. I still think the luxurious weight. I still think the

track is a factor. He doesn't like

firm going, they wanted softerer

going for him. They were doing

their best to raise the their best to raise the

brinkmanship with the track manager,

utbut the track might be firmer? He

will be all right, he has won firm

track back home but sitting in the

first 10 horses, he won't have to

worry about the hustle and bustle

of midfield. He will be forward, on

the speed, can win. So Septimus for the speed, can win. So Septimus for

Simon and Mad Rush for Richard. It

won't be the first argument they

have. The crowds are building, we

will be back at 12.50 with the

special preview. Neal Kerney -ry has

has been catching up with the

atmosphere. All the talk of the

carnival is about the domination of

the interhorses. What do Aussie

punters think # Return to sender #

Address unknown # Go home. Not

happy about it. Why, where are you

from? Sneeld. I want to ask you

about the overseas horses. I'm a

New Zealander, mate! I'm a bona New Zealander, mate! I'm a bona

fide one. You don't mind the fact

the internationals come? No,

competition, show the Australian

and New Zealand horses when they

are on the game, they can beat

anybody. The old Anzac spirit,

Australians and New Zealands,

should we stick together? Yes should we stick together? Yes

that's it. What do you think of that's it. What do you think of the

Irish and English horses coming to

take the Melbourne Cup. Someone has

got to race. A fairly charitable

attitude from a convict? I'm a attitude from a convict? I'm a

charitable person. What is worn

under the Chaplin's kilt? My boots,
