Economists generally have enough sense to know that they know nothing about horse races. There are people who do. They are called tipsters. Every Melbourne Cup Day, their tips are published in major newspapers.

Today we have taken the tips published in The Australian newspaper. We have taken 9 of those tipsters. From these tipsters we construct our most favoured rating. Every horse nominated to win gets 3 points. Every horse nominated to come in second gets 2 points. Horses nominated to come in third get 1 point.

Remember our recommendation is for the best value bet rather than the highest probability of winning. Gamble responsibly.
