Don't miss our two bumper Melbourne Cup liftouts

IT'S the race that stops a nation - and we'll will make sure you don't miss a moment of it.

This year we're bringing you two Melbourne Cup lift-outs that will tell you everything you need to know about the biggest day on the Australian racing calendar.

Don't miss our bumper 16-page guide on Monday, which includes the latest race fields, sweeps to share with your mates or office colleagues and a practical guide for once-a-year punters, such as how to place a bet and decipher the information on the form guides.

If you're a less scientific gambler, we've got you covered too, with an astrologer's guide to having a flutter, as well a wrap of the numbers and colours that have crossed the line first over the years.

On Tuesday, we'll bring you another 16 pages of Cup goodness, with the latest fields, plus everything Melbourne Cup that's happening locally.

And don't forget, we'll have the news as it happens online, and will carry comprehensive local and national coverage of the event in next Wednesday's paper.

So get your frocks and suits ready, and don't forget to grab your paper to help you pick a winner.
