2010 Melbourne Cup Trifecta Set to Pay Big Dividends for Punters

With the Flemington track conditions still to be confirmed, so many strong wet trackers in the mix, nine international runners in the field and a wide open betting market, one Melbourne Cup bet that is a sure thing is that the winning 2010 Melbourne Cup Trifecta is set to pay big dividends to punters tomorrow!

A Melbourne Cup Trifecta is a great way to get in on the action of the world’s richest handicap, the $6 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) due to run as Race 7 at Flemington tomorrow, jumping at 3:00pm (AEDST).

A trifecta is where you select the top three placegetters in a race, in the correct finishing order, and punters that pick the winning combination are always well rewarded with big dividends!

Melbourne Cup Trifecta Tips

  • Include Roughies – Melbourne Cup favourites have a poor recent record in the famous Flemington feature, with the last favourite to win being Makybe Diva in 2005, before that it was Jezabeel in 1998. So make sure you add some longer-priced roughies into your exotics at Luxbet.
  • Box Trifectas – Because your selected runners must finish in the exact finishing order for your Trifecta to win, boxing in other runners and opening up the combinations gives you more chances to win. For the best odds and exotic betting options, avoid the TAB and jump online with the Tabcorp-owned Luxbet.
  • Add an International Horse – With all Melbourne Cup multiples make sure you add one of the nine strong international horses into the mix. The past four Melbourne Cup runners-up were overseas runners with Crime Scene (2009), Bauer (2008), Purple Moon (2007) and Pop Rock (2006).
  • Place your Trifecta Online – Melbourne Cup Day is the biggest day of the year for punters, so if you bet at the TAB expect long lines, confusing cards and no help! Instead, why not avoid the confusion and bet online through a trusted bookmaker such as Luxbet. You will get better odds like the Tote + 20%, access to online Melbourne Cup form for all the runners and more betting options so you can win big!
