Here's another chance to win on the Cup

PICKING a winner in the Melbourne Cup is as hard as any horse race in the world, a fact Jordyn Wilson knows all too well.

Only once has the Gladstone punter stumbled upon a winner of the big race, tipping Green Moon in 2012.

Other than that, Wilson has not even come close.

In fact, he is so unsure this time around, Wilson thinks the Lucky Cup promotion running in The Observer this Saturday is going to be his best bet.

"This game is my best bet easily. I will be picking up the paper on Saturday for sure," he said.

"My punting is ordinary at best."

By picking up The Observer on Saturday, Wilson will be putting his name into the mix for two different prizes.

A Lucky Cup Biggest Sweep and Lucky Cup Biggest Trifecta are on offer, with easy to follow rules for punters, or anyone who picks up a copy.

Despite a bad record in this style of competition, Wilson is already feeling lucky.

"I am a serial loser but this time is hopefully my time," he said.

Jordyn's cup tips:

  • Admire Rakti - It won the Caulfield Cup in style and is favourite for the cup
  • Fawkner - It is always impressive and I liked its run in the Cox Plate
