Max Hitchins is Melbourne Cup Max. He is one of Australia’s leading experts on the race Max knows that many Australians just want to be able to say “I backed the winner of the Melbourne Cup.” In 1987 he decided to find a better and less costly format to be able to do this. Max decided to see if he could whittle the likely chances down to just six horses instead of 24. He then advises “Have a small each-way bet on these six horses and you should be able to say you backed the winner of the Melbourne Cup.” Max’s system has worked 26 out of the last 32 years. Not perfect…but not bad!
Max now writes two Melbourne Cup eBooks that you can buy and download immediately.

Keith and Maureene, a retired couple, are avid gardeners and propagators. In April and October each year Keith and Maureene open their house and hold a huge plant sale. The sale is aptly called the Huge Plant Sale.
All proceeds from the Huge Plant Sale are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). They have raised over $100 000 for breast cancer since they started selling plants a few years ago.
Their garden was featured on Gardening Australia. Costa was In the Cove. Episode details are here.
