Weights - the majority of winners of the Melbourne Cup have been 4 or 5 year old male horses carrying up to 55kgs. It is possible to win with top weight, but it takes an exceptional horse to do it.


Form - there are a few key local races which can be a good guide for the Melbourne Cup including the Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate, Geelong Cup, Bart Cummings and Lexus Stakes. Otherwise, look for any horse that has won over 2400m or more in the last 6 months (since May).

Age - three year old horses often place in the Melbourne Cup but the last to win was the previous Saturday's Derby winner Skipton back in 1941. Horses over the age of 6 have less success, although this generally applies less to European stayers who start racing later and usually have had fewer career starts than Australian horses, however horses aged over 8 do not win Melbourne Cups.

Barrier Draw - depends on the racing style of the horse. If they like to race forward an inside gate will assist, if they usually race back and swoop late it doesn't matter where they draw. Keep in mind it is very hard to lead all the way in the Melbourne Cup due to the distance involved.


International Raiders -  Melbourne Cup runners whose careers began in Europe are begining to dominate. The winners of the 2010 & 2011 Melbourne Cups were Australian owned but trained in France. In 2012 & 2013 the winners were imported from the UK to local stables. The winner in 2014 migrated here from Germany, 2015 winner was locally trained and bred but in 2016 the winner was another locally trained import. It's a definite trend.

Some quick tips for having a great Melbourne Cup Day:

Get your bets on early. Everyone in Australia (and their dog) will know that it’s Melbourne Cup day. Not everyone in the country will be placing a bet, it will just seem like it. In the past, some less sophisticated online systems have struggled with the overwhelming level of interest on the big race days. Bet online with a reliable company such as Sportsbet to avoid disappointment.

What to wear? If you’re going on course in the public area the dress code is anything goes. Some people will even go in fancy dress.  But why not dress up nice, even if you’re not going to the see the races live. It’s a special day, make an effort. Buy a hat! 

Check the weather forecast, but keep in mind the weather on Melbourne Cup day can be unpredictable. It’s early Spring so it could be 30 degrees or 5, it could start out fine and be pouring rain by 3pm.

Having a party at home? The first race is at 10.30am, get everything ready early in the day. Decorate with yellow flowers and balloons (the official flower of Melbourne Cup day is a yellow rose.) Keep food simple and bite size, fire up the BBQ. Bubbles of some kind are essential to celebrate the winner of the Cup.

Find the winner. (This is simple – see below) or go HERE for a formula to help you predict the trifecta in the Melbourne Cup.

If you're not lucky enough to be joining the crowds trackside at Flemington, your local TAB will open early in the morning - but the lines can stretch into the street as everyone tries to get their once a year bet on. If lining up for hours from the crack of dawn doesn't appeal to you, bet on the Melbourne Cup the smart way - online, at any time that's convenient to you. We recommend Australia's top online bookie, Sportsbet.
