2017 Melbourne Cup Betting Tips
As the 2016 Melbourne Cup draws ever closer punters across the land will be looking for the best betting tips and nominations for the big race. We here at the Betting Directory will be giving you as many pointers as possible in trying to find you a winner. The Melbourne Cup isn't the easiest to find a winner though, with around twenty four horses charging around the two mile circuit at Flemington Racecourse.
In terms of interest from Europe, the record isn't great, with just two winners and twelve placed finishes in the last ten years from 53 Melbourne Cup runners. This makes picking out a winner for the Melbourne Cup that much more difficult than usual and we'd make your first tip to concentrate on horses trained on home soil. In terms of checking out these horses we have our very own Melbourne Cup Form Guide which will help you look at the form and we also highlight the big races in the lead up to November within our Melbourne Cup Trials section.
European runners have increased in recent seasons however and last year six runners from Europe finished in the top ten, including the first two past the post in Dunaden and Red Cadeaux.
