He loves Sandown as well, having won six races there. Expect him to storm home from the middle of the pack tonight." BET: $25 Win, $25 Place TURANZA BALE -- Race 8 Box 5 The Melbourne Cup 100% of proceeds from these selections go to The Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal Running Total - $885.00 Gutsy Octare has spring in her step Nick Quinn Leading ladies: Melbourne Vixens co-captain Bianca Chatfield with Octare, her tip to win the cup tonight. PUNTERS were shocked last week when 35-1 chance Octare won a Melbourne Cup heat and bundled many of them out of the quaddie. Octare sent highly rated rivals Cindeen Shelby and Gripen Bale crashing out of the cup with a career-best performance. ''If someone had told me six months ago that Octare would make a Melbourne Cup final, I'd have fallen off my chair,'' Octare's Lara-based trainer Jamie Ennis said. ''Back then she had won just three races from 38 starts, was very shy and was as quiet as a mouse. ''Then just by chance I moved her into the kennel next to (retired superstar and 2008 Ballarat Cup winner) Vee Man Vane and ever since she has found an incredible streak of confidence. She's now won 11 races and is more like a lion than a mouse.'' Octare, the youngest runner in the cup field, was $31 with TAB Sportsbet last night. ''It will obviously be a step up again, but if she can get to the lead like she did last start, she is as tough as nails and you just never know what she might find,'' Ennis said. ''Last start when she found the lead most people expected the more fancied runners to round her up and go straight past her, but they didn't an- ticipate how gutsy she was. ''Octare is a fantastic chaser and won't shirk the issue. I wouldn't write off her chances. ''I've had her for around six months and she just keeps lifting to another level.''
