Huge Cup Day For Ratings Members

Posted on November 5th, 2013 by Red Belly Sports

Red Belly Ratings members had a Melbourne Cup day to remember, winning 8.68 units and cheering home the winner of the big race, Fiorente.


For punters who are not familiar with unitised betting, a ‘unit’ represents 1% of your total betting bank.


So if you have a bank of $1000, your bet unit size will be $10 (i.e. 1% of $1000) and so on.


A win of 8.68 units can equate to the following cash amounts:


For a $50 per unit punter – $434

For a $100 per unit punter –  $868

For a $500 per unit punter – $4,340


Our form analyst Ed Kennett advised members to back Fiorente as the main selection in his overall Melbourne Cup strategy on Sunday morning, when $8.50 was on offer.


 Salon Soldier ($3.50, another early SMS selection sent on Saturday night)

 Oxford Poet ($6.50 rated a $3.20 chance)

 Vitello ($2.05 rated $1.85)


We went close in a number of other races, with Arinosa ($5.50) and Iconic ($7) finishing second, and Pago Rock ($8) finishing third.
