The Melbourne Cup

The Race That Stops A Nation. So well known is the Melbourne Cup throughout Australia and the world that it has its own public holiday, so that the Australian population can enjoy the day, either at home or, if they are lucky enough, at the actual track.

There are many ways to place a bet on the Melbourne Cup, but by far the best way is to make use of one of our chosen sites at, and place a bet either online or via your mobile device. Our sites offer the best Melbourne Cup betting odds as well as various Melbourne Cup betting specials.

Choosing A Winner

Of course, the one question on everyone’s mind when betting for Melbourne Cup, is which horse is going to win? The answer is not usually clear cut, although there have been some exceptions. One such notable horse was a mare called Maykbe Diva. She won three consecutive years in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Taking note of superstars like her should play a big part in choosing the right horse, but remember that thoroughbreds are delicate animals, and anything can happen.

Bloodlines play a large part in how a horse performs. The aforementioned Makybe Diva is from the wildly successful Danehill line which has produced countless winners. Compiling your own notes about how horses run, and how those horses are bred will give you a good idea of how they may perform. Taking the actual course into consideration should also be a top priority, as even the best horse may not perform in thick mud or searing heat.
