Diesel the Echidna’s Melbourne Cup Prediction

For punters getting ready for the race that stops a nation, Diesel the Echidna has made her annual Melbourne Cup prediction! One of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's two Echidnas, Diesel has a great knack for picking a winner.

This year, she has enthusiastically backed Unchain My Heart, one of only two Australian-bred runners in tomorrow's race. Royal Diamond and Mutual Regard round out her trifecta.

Diesel can be seen in Kangaroo Walk-About along with Grey Kangaroos, Agile Wallabies, Quokkas and more!
