How To Pick The Winner Of The 2022 Melbourne Cup.

max hitchinsMy name is Max Hitchins. I am known as MelbourneCupMax. This is possibly because I have memorised the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place-getters of the Melbourne Cup for the last 100 years. Or maybe it is because my Melbourne Cup System has ‘worked’ for 27 out of the last 33 years and many from the media call me Melbourne Cup Max or Mr Melbourne Cup. For me the Melbourne Cup is a 365 day commitment .

I follow national and international horses, research articles, talk to owners, trainers and media experts. I study breeding, watch live races and videos from all around the world. I like to think I do everything other than 'talk' to the horses!

My total focus is just one race - the Melbourne Cup. My Dad, a bookmaker from the North Western NSW town of Moree, used to say "Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted!"


I guess I'm lucky, because I only have one race that consumes my interest. All the media experts have at least 7 races a day, 7 days a week in which they are expected to know the form of every horse. That's a tough gig!

During the year, I like to share information and give updates to subscribers to my Facebook page. See: If you are not sure what to do in order to 'follow me'...ask any teenager! They will show you.

In 2021, because of what I posted on my Facebook page, many of my Facebook followers won handsomely on the Melbourne Cup and were paid out before the race. "How can this happen?" you ask.

I'll let Greg Holten tells you. He sent me this video a week 'before' the running of the 2021 Melbourne Cup. Click on the video below.

If you have ever thought about wondered learning about Trifectas, Quadrellas, First Fours etc

dr frank cheok"Hi Max... Like many Aussies I am a once a year punter…at Melbourne Cup time. Like many once-a-year punters I always lost. That stopped when I started following you and your system. Can you believe that was 26 years ago! As you know, several years ago I retired as an as an Ophthalmic Surgeon at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney. My colleagues at the Hospital were always amazed at how (a once a year gambler) almost always backed the Melbourne Cup winner. I simply used to tell them - I have a source! :) Thanks for your friendship and thanks for being ‘my source’.” Dr Frank Cheok OAM

About "Futures, Trifectas & Magic Moments for the 2021 Melbourne Cup" eBook.

Many experienced punters, at Melbourne Cup time, use the information and research in How To Pick The Winner Of The Melbourne Cup to assist them with with their Futures, Trifectas, Quadrellas and other forms of specialised wagering. These type of bets are known as Exotics. For 'once a year punters' Exotics can be quite intimidating and overwhelming. Particularly when you try to absorb it all at the 'last minute'.

Exotic betting can be a lot of fun, can be profitable and bring some 'magic' into play. By 'magic' I mean providing opportunities to have a number of horses running for you in the Melbourne Cup...for NO outlay. For example, in March 2021, I suggested to my followers on my Facebook site - that Realm Of Flowers was perhaps worth a small wager (what I call a 'cup of coffee' bet) at the then price of $201 on the TAB Melbourne Cup Futures market. By the middle of the year Realm Of Flowers was one of the favourites for the 2021 Melbourne Cup at $15.00. In this eBook I explain this and tell how to 'lay off' bets like this and have horses running for you for NO outlay. It's a magical feeling and it last a long time. I did a similar thing year, in September 2000, when I suggested to my Facebook followers that Twilight Payment was worth a 'cup of coffee' bet when he was $67 in the 2021 Melbourne Cup Futures market....and he won at $26.
