A punter with the TAB has wasted no time backing a German import to win this years Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
The punter has placed a big bet of $6,000 on Robert Hickmott trained Schabau at $51 to win the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday November 5th to collect a massive $306,000.
Schabau has won both of his starts in Australia and will look to make it three in a row in Saturday’s Roy Higgins Quality of 2600m at Flemington.
