2010 Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw

Melbourne Cup Barrier Draw

The Melbourne Cup draw is made on Victoria Cup day just three days before the race and is an important factor when considering which of the Melbourne Cup runners to bet on. The best draw for the Melbourne Cup tends to be in the middle.

If you are drawn on the outside you need to make up a lot of ground on the field before going into the first corner at the end of the straight. There's a potential for horses to either use up too much energy trying to get handily placed, or miss the break completely and be too far off the front to win the race. An inside draw offers similar problems with horses jostling for places in the lead up to the first corner.
