Melbourne Cup Betting

Melbourne Cup Bets

The Melbourne Cup is described as the 'race that stops a nation' in Australia as the whole country stands still on the first Tuesday of every November to watch one of the richest handicaps in the world.

Similar to the Grand National in the UK the Melbourne Cup is the one race in the Australian horse racing calendar which everybody likes to have a bet on. The nature of the race, a twenty four runner two mile handicap raced at Flemington Racecourse means that it usually has quite an open feel to the betting, with only 34 favourites winning in nearly 150 runnings of the race.

In the last ten years there have only been three winning favourites, with Makybe Diva winning in 2004 and 2005 to make it an historic three in a row before Fiorente won from the head of the market in 2013.
