No Princes of Penzance amongst media industry’s tipsters

Dr Mumbo Melbourne CupIf Dr Mumbo’s Melbourne Cup tips are anything to go by it’s going to be a quiet night in adland, as all of his industry tipsters completely missed the mark.

Despite a who’s who of the media entering the stakes – hello Tim Worner, Nicole Sheffield, Kieran Moore and Barry O’Brien – no one picked rank outsider Prince of Penzance for the win. 

Which is unfortunate given the horse started the day at 101:1 odds and come the time of the race was still paying some $86 for every dollar bet.

Oh well better luck next year…

Until then John Steedman remains reigning champion while WA Newspapers’s Chris Wharton gets the consolation prize for being the only person to choose second place Max Dynamite to place.
