2009 Melbourne Cup

The race that stops the whole nation will be on again tomorrow afternoon, and for chess fans two horses are surely worth a bet. These are last year's winner "Viewed" and "Roman Emperor".

What's so special about these two, you ask. Well, apart from the fact that both horses finished one-two in last month's Caulfield Cup and trained by Cup legend Bart Cummings (who is gunning for his 13th win), the pair are also owned by Malaysian chess stalwart, Datuk Tan Chin Nam.

My tip, however, is Allez Wonder.

Dato' Tan Chin Nam is part-owner of Roman Emperor and Allez Wonder.

But he owns 100% of Viewed and if it wins today we will celebrate with a big chess tournament!
