Listen to Award Winning Broadcaster Chris Smith from Radio 2GB in Sydney interviewing Max Hitchins.


Max...2018 and you've done it again. The Quadrella 1st & 2nd.  Cross Counter and Marmelo. Max you are nothing short of a genius when it comes to the race that stops the nation, with only a handful of selections you nail the Melbourne Cup most years and you are always great fun to interview, so as long as I own FAB FM in Port Douglas you’ll always get a gurnsey (or is that silks) on the first Tuesday in November.

...and other people are saying...

Hi Max. Melbourne Cup 2018.  The stormy weather and the reports of flooding at the track in the lead up to the race had me worried about the horses. But true to form, your Melbourne Cup information on the morning of the race with all these factors included sees me standing here, once again, with another fistful of winning tickets! Not only did I cover the costs of my steak sandwich and pint for lunch,  but my girlfriend will be getting flowers and a bottle of champagne tonight as well, cheers mate!! Mike Borowiec from Perth


Hi Max. As an American, many people think it strange that I bet on the Australian Gallops online.  I placed my first Australian bet in 2004, although I have been handicapping horses and playing the races since 1983. I signed up for Max Hitchins' Pick The Cup Winner in 2004 to aid me in handicapping that year's Melbourne Cup. It's a common belief in the U.S.A. that mares are about 20% inferior to male horses, so I thought Max was quite mad to pick a mare to win the Cup - Makybe Diiva. Max showed me the error of my ways. I have signed up for Max's Pick The Cup Winner every year since. His picks have been both phenomenal and profitable, this year, picking the Quinella of Cross Counter and Marmelo, being no exception. Long live Max Hitchins! -   Glenn Speck   Mustang,  Oklahoma U.S.A.

 Hi Max.  Just wanted to give a big shout out and say thank you for your booklets including the extra booklet on Trifectas.  Following the system, I placed a box trifecta on the international horses that, as per Trifecta Thoughts, had won races overseas. This resulted in me getting the first three places of the Cup and I pocketed $1100.   Nearly had the first four as well based on that info. Thank again again Max.

Max.  You are a dead set genius AGAIN!!!!  Cross Counter and Marmelo. 1st and 2nd. Amazing.   Well done mate.

Thanks for your tips Max. Cross Counter and Marmelo WOW! I am not a punter but love to have a bet on the cup and obviously pick the winner. I boxed 4 of your horses in a Quinella and it paid $74.60 and I finished $53.00 in front on the race. Had some fun a got the bragging rights. Kind regards.

Hi Max.  Well done getting the quinella from your top 3. I have subscribed for the last 3 years and have been closer than by my prior solo efforts
This year I’ve snagged the M Cup trifecta with your help.  The help was putting Cross Counter into my top 6 and so when my wife asked me for a top 3 I nominated 9 17 23 which she boxed for $10 and she had $5 on Marmello each way. I have about 80% if the trifecta.  I wasn’t keen on your bottom 3 so basically a team effort - I really liked Prince of Arran as he had a lot of 3200 form at good pace and it was just a matter of how he backed up.  Anyway I’m a happy boy - after 40 years I’ve cracked a Mel cup trifecta.  Thanks.  Stephen


G’day Max....I just wanted to let you know that this year I didn’t have time to read the papers, not that it would have made a difference. I simply used your top 3 picks (risky I know) and backed Marmelo and Cross Counter with the field in a Boxed Flexi trifecta (37.87% dividend). My $50 investment returned $960. This has made up for my Melbourne Cup losses over the last few years and it gives me a bit of a budget for next year. See you next year.  Paul from North Sydney


Hi Max. I just want to thank you for a great 2018 Melbourne Cup. I took your top 3 horses and had  the Quinella 50 times. I halso had the Trifecta 1.3 times by taking your top 3 for first then your top 6 for second and i added another 4 to your 6 for third. I sure am a happy little Vegemite.    See you next year.   Alan from Townsville.

Congratulation, Max... and thank you for the amount of time you spend in analyzing the Melbourne Cup field each year. Once again your selections, was spot on, for 1st and 2nd placing. I picked the 3rd and 4th by following the criteria stated in the "Trifecta Thoughts" document I purchased from you......so thank you very much for the time and effort you put into your work. I look forward to another rewarding year in 2019.  Although Marmelo narrowly missed, your comments about Marmelo's performance have now dispelled the long-standing myth about horses that have contested the cup in prior years.

Thanks Max,

It was a photo finish and you still predicted the winner!!

I just cashed another winning ticket on Dunaden for the 2011 Melbourne Cup and my friends think I know how to pick the winner.? I don’t really understand how you do it. But I don’t really care. What I do know is that you keep getting it right year after year.Your eBook and the final tip is my best investment every year.

Thanks for another great celebration!

All the best,

Hi Max
I want to join the many subscribers that would have been passing on congratulations on again selecting the winner of the Cup.
I would certainly agree with your assessment of 2011 being a very tough year for selecting the Cup winner.
As in previous years, I read through the “Pick the Cup Winner 2011” e-book after purchase. The research you undertake in regard to the lead up races and the results you have achieved confirms the old adage “you get out what you put in” and the search for the Cup winner is clearly a project that you approach with a passion - 22 wins from 24 equates to a 91.6% success rate.
Kind regards

Hi Max,
I am a once a year Melbourne Cup day only punter. This year I decided to 'take the gamble' of investing $9.95 in buying your annual eBook.?
On Melbourne Cup day I could not face the idea of going down to the TAB and fighting the crowds to put a bet on. A few days before the Cup I had received an email from LUXABET advising if I put $25 into an account, set up in my name, they would give me a 'one off ' bet of $100 (FOR FREE).
Sounded like a good deal, so I did it. I then placed $100 for a win on your #1 selection - Dunadin.??
And so I turned my $9.95 gamble on buying your eBook into $800.?? And if you wish to validate the story give LUXABET a call!
Thank you much. You are a legend.?

Hi Max,
Congratulations! On the Melbourne Cup Win!
And Thank You as we also won thanks to you. Thanks to the French Connection!
Your research and wisdom is invaluable and we will be following you for a long time to come....

Hi Max,
Unbelievable. Only been a subscriber to your eBook for two years and here we are again. Another winner. Twice in a row. Huge, just huge!! Thanks.
