Get ready for the big races this spring with The Spring Fever Racing Podcast hosted by Des Coppins and TAB bookie Stephen Hunt.

Thad Taylor and Stephen Hunt discuss the race that stops two nations.

They're joined by Des Coppins from Melbourne before on-fire Victoria tipster Deane Lester breaks down every runner in the race and makes his selections.

Finally, Trackside's Brendan Popplewell joins the programme to discuss the racing at Ellerslie and makes his Melbourne Cup pick.
