Can Signoff win the Melbourne Cup in 2014? That is the question a lot of punters will be asking themselves after that absolutely impressive run in the Lexus Stakes on Derby Day.  Signoff won the race over 2500 metres with what looked like absolute ease and given the weight Signoff has in the Melbourne Cup of just 51kgs it looks like a great bet (currently sitting at odds of $7)

Trained by Darren Weir this looks like the one to beat on Tuesday, now it is just a waiting game to see if 4 days is enough time for Signoff to recover for the 3200 metre race.

I will be including Signoff in my trifecta bets and first fours as it should definitely finish in the placings.

Given that a lot of the top weights haven’t really had overly impressive wins in my opinion lately apart from Admire Rakti I think that Signoff can really take advantage of this.
